Finally got my check yesterday and am depositing it today. 3 months almost to the day. Still waiting to hear (again) from PGE. Not sure why the rebate process takes so long but, of course, I am glad that it is/was available.

Why should it take any shorter period of time?

Same for me: got mine in the mail yesterday! Now my downpayment is negative!! :D

While it did take exactly 30 days for the approval, I got notification that the check was cut yesterday, only 49 (of the 90) days later. Nice!

I also signed up for the Monterey CA. county rebate program. That's another $2K :mrgreen:

May I ask how the heck you managed to get 27.5K OTD for a loaded premier? Is that pre CA sales tax?

I bought a fully loaded Premier for about 46K with taxes and fees (Pennsylvania) - 7500 fed credit - 1750 PA State Rebate - 50 local utility = roughly 36700 net

If you are at 27500 net I am truly impressed/jealous ;-)

I'd be interested too BUT, rather than further hijack this thread, please post your answer in the "How much I paid for my Bolt" thread. Thanks! ;)

Opps! Type O :mrgreen: That's 37,500.00 including tax, title and lic.
That does not include the tax break of $7500.00

The $2.5k's in the bank and already spent. Now I just need to see the $500 from PGE. Not holding my breath for that. :roll:

Ok, I just got another email from PGE (6 weeks after sending in my 2nd application) telling me that their $500 rebate check is in the mail. :)

Still not clear why the 1st application to PGE was rejected but I'm covered now. That's a total of $3k in rebates for my Bolt which makes the deal about as good as it could get for me. Just wish it didn't have to take almost 3 1/2 months to complete the process.

Oh well . . . as they say, beggars can't be choosy. Just happy that the rebates were available to begin with.

Applied on March 14rd.
Approved on April 10th.
Notified that check was mailed on May 16th.
Check received May 18th (today).

Basically 2 months from when the application was submitted.

Received my PG&E rebate checks last week, and the application for those were submitted at the same time for the CVRP rebate.

You were luckier than I was.

I'm not taking it personally but I'm just not having very much luck w/bureaucratic matters recently 3-4 months to get my Bolt rebates (still haven't seen the PGE check) and going on 4 months to get the pink slip for my BMW which I paid off in March.

Oh well . . .
