    Default GM Card Points !!

    Opinions please on the GM card, any solicitors opinion would maybe be better !

    Me and my wife took out a GM card as soon as we knew we were going to be buying a Vauxhall just so we could spend as much on it as possible and pool our points towards the new car. All fine so far.

    Just got our statements and in our opinion we are 100 points less each (worth £200 in total) than we were expecting.

    On the GM website ( see link below, paragraph 4 and 5) it very clearly states,
    http://www.gmcard.co.uk/gm_card_features.do


    You can apply for The GM Card at any Vauxhall Retailer and you’ll receive 100 Rebate Points (at £1 a point) that can be used towards your new Vauxhall.

    Get 100 free Rebate Points when you use your GM Card for the first time (which, again, can be put to the cost of a new Vauxhall).

    Now to me and everyone else that has seen it ( Including the girl on the telephone when I rang them) read it as being you get 100 points when you take the card out and ANOTHER 100 points when you use the card for the first time, they even include the word AGAIN which to me definately reads that you get two separate lots of points.

    They reckon you do not get two lots and even though the website does state that or read that you do, it is wrong.

    Surely if it is there in black and white this is legally binding.

    Opinions please, I want to push this, £200 is better off my car than with GM !!

    I have had my GM card for years, currently there is 1589 points on it! Although I remember getting 100 points when we first used it, I can't recall getting any points for opening a GM Card account.

    It does read that way on the site, however its always been the case that you get 100 points when you sign up, but in order to claim those 100 points you need to spend on your card once to activate them.

    it reads as you say, so they are misrepresenting it, contact gm if that fails go to trading standards and get some advice from your local CAB office.

    I see what your saying, but is it really worth all the hassle?
