How do I enroll in the program?

As one of GWC's highest producing dealers you are automatically enrolled in the program. 

How does the program work?

You will earn $50 for every eligible contract that you remit and pay for over your baseline.

Which contracts are eligible?

  • Program is valid on all GWC vehicle service contracts 6 months or longer. 
  • Exclusionary Wrap, Powertrain, Certified and Certified Plus contracts are excluded.

How was my baseline calculated?

  • Your baseline is the average of the total number of GWC contracts your remitted in October and November of 2015. 
    • Example: If you remitted 20 contracts in October and 30 contracts in November your monthly baseline would be 25. 
  • Dealers who did not write in October or November of 2015 will use the average of their last 3 months (July – August – September 2016) as their baseline. 

How can I receive my earnings?

  • You can choose to receive your earnings via check or prepaid card.
