Lucky Car Dealer Scores Big with Chase Instant Credit Promotion


Former Professional Football Great Barry Sanders to Spend the Day at Winning General Motors Dealership

WILMINGTON, Del.- A Michigan car dealership and its customers will enjoy a priceless football experience this month. As a reward for its top participation in a promotion held by Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. [NYSE: JPM], and MasterCard Worldwide, Barry Sanders, the former professional football superstar, will sign autographs at the Al Serra Chevrolet dealership in Grand Blanc, Mich., from 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 26.

Chase Card Services’ “Pass to A Great Selling Season” promotion was held at participating General Motors car dealerships across the North Central region from Nov. 13, 2006 to Jan. 13, 2007. Customers applied for the GM Business Card from Chase in the dealerships, and the dealer that submitted the most instant credit applications won the appearance of a current or former professional football player to help drive traffic and increase visibility. The sales and service staff from the winning dealership also won a special lunch with the player.

“The promotion has been a great benefit for our customers, and we couldn’t be happier with our participation,” said Joe Serra, owner of Al Serra Chevrolet. “The GM Business Card instant credit offering was simple and easy and created a ton of excitement. Plus, as far as bringing in a bigger sports icon, we couldn’t do better than one of the all-time greatest in Barry Sanders.”
