COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) – Ohio Farm Bureau members can now receive a $500 discount on each qualifying 2011 or 2012 model year Chevrolet, GMC or Buick vehicle they purchase or lease. This Farm Bureau member exclusive is offered for vehicles purchased or leased through Farm Bureau’s—GM Private Offer at a participating GM dealership.

Twenty-six GM models are part of the program, including the Chevrolet Silverado HD, honored as the 2011 Motor Trend Truck of the Year. A broad range of other pick-up trucks, SUVs, sedans and crossovers also are included in the program.

According to Chillicothe farmer and Ohio Farm Bureau Federation President Steve Hirsch, “Helping members stretch their family budget is an important part of what we do at Farm Bureau, so this $500 GM Private Offer is a great deal. We’re glad we can provide this to our current members and we invite other folks to consider joining.”

Members qualify for the program by having a valid Farm Bureau membership for at least 60 days prior to delivery of the vehicle. Members will need to provide their membership number and zip code to obtain the $500 certificate. Certificates are available online at http://www.fbverify.com/GM or through county Farm Bureau offices and participating GM dealers.

The incentive may be applied to the purchase or lease of multiple vehicles, including fleet vehicles purchased through GM’s National Fleet Purchase Program. Full details and program eligibility guidelines are available by contacting county Farm Bureau offices or visiting ofbf.org/benefits-and-membership/.

The Farm Bureau—GM Private Offer is the latest national member benefit offered by American Farm Bureau, Inc. AFBI was founded nearly three decades ago by the American Farm Bureau Federation to increase the economic value of membership in Farm Bureau. AFBI and GM will promote the Farm Bureau Private Offer through publications and state events including the Ohio Farm Bureau annual meeting and AFBF’s annual meeting.
