Hey guys. I posted a deal last month on a Chevy Bolt lease. I just received an email from my salesperson Marci with a new offer they are running for Costco members. This is a much better deal than the one I got
It's roughly $20-$30 cheaper per month, plus you get up to a $700 Costco cash card if you're an executive member. Which is a $55 upgrade over the basic membership, but it's a no-brainer if you plan on getting the lease. If you factor in all the incentives ($2500 EV rebate and $700 Costco cash card), the lowest Bolt LT will cost you around $153 per month. If you're an SCE or PGE customer you can get a $450-$500 rebate from them also. Do note that the $2500 EV rebate is current on wait-list status since they ran out of funding. Although from what I understand, this is normal.
Update: Looks like funding was approved 👍
Here are the details:

As for my experience with the car itself, I've had it for about a month and I love it. It's extremely efficient. The range is estimated at 238 miles but I've been getting around 260-270 based on my daily driving which is a 50/50 mix of freeway and street. I got the top Premier model with all the options. Honestly though, I think I would've been fine with the base LT model with DC fast charging. The extra options are nice but nothing I couldn't live without. The main reasons to go for the Premier would be the upgraded interior (vinyl seats) and the upgraded wheels. The Bose sound system is nice too but you can also get that with the regular LT. The vinyl seats and wheels are only for the Premier.
Edit: The driver park assist package is only available on the Premier model.
