Rewarded Z06 Owners: No Car Flipping Required
Ever since the first 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06s began to be seen on dealers’ lots, there has been a flurry of speculation and flipping from speculators. To counteract this, General Motors intelligently decided that their beloved flagbearer should only be enjoyed by those who will truly care for it.
As we reported in the summer of last year, GM assured owners who bought a new Z06 of 500,000 My Chevrolet Rewards points when they enrolled in the program within 30 days of purchase and held onto their vehicle for at least 6 months (down from 12). These points, which are worth $5,000, could be redeemed to buy official pieces or accessories, cover maintenance, or even aid in disbursing a loan with GM Financial.
In accordance with Austin Everett, differently named as Speed Phenom on YouTube, he ascertained that folks didn’t understand the rules of the program upon making a Corvette acquisition. A short while ago, Everett released a video on his YouTube account where he complained of being declined with regards to points because it hadn’t been made clear that he had to specifically register for the Z06 rewards plan within 30 days after purchasing his Corvette.
Within a limited time period of Everett making public the video, he and other Z06 possessors received an email to make plain the loyalty program regulations. Trevor Thompkins, the Chevrolet communication director for passenger cars and performance cars, sent out the mail that prescribed that whoever bought or leased a 2023 Corvette Z06 was able to enroll with My Chevrolet Rewards until December 1st, 2023 to get the maintenance incentive. The manufacturer will present those 500,000 reward points to those who maintain their sports vehicles for a minimum of six months (or even those having already attained this benchmark when they register).
Everett praised GM for the program updates in his most recent video, lauding their decision to make loyalty bonuses more retrievable. Mentioning that half a million points would pay for two $1,000 alloys, or authentic Chevy attachments such as a carbon fiber motor support for a supercar, he said he’d be using his points on brake pads, an item that commonly needs replacing during race-filled weekends.
