GE Product Purchase Plan

Through the GE Employee Product Purchase Plan, you can receive discounts from the Company for buying certain new Company products for use in your own home, or by your dependents.



Who is eligible?
Generally, your eligibility for the GE Employee Product Purchase Plan ends when you leave the Company. However, you continue to be eligible if:

  • You retire directly from the Company with a Company pension (Plant Closing Pension Option recipients with less than 25 years of Pension Qualification Service are not eligible for continued participation); or
  • You have 25 or more years of continuous service or Pension Qualification Service when:
    - Your continuous service ends after one year on layoff; or
    - You are terminated because of a plant closing or a transfer to a successor employer.


Other employees who leave the Company before retirement, including those with a vested pension, are not eligible to continue participating in the GE Employee Product Purchase Plan. In addition, employees with 25 or more years of continuous service who were terminated due to a job-loss event on or before June 27, 1988, are not eligible for the plan.

For your surviving spouse
Your spouse may be eligible for continued participation after your death if you had more than 10 years of continuous service and your spouse is:

  • Receiving payments from the GE Pension Plan; or
  • Covered under a Company medical plan.

How does the plan work?
The discounts available to you under the plan vary by product and model. In general, discounts range from $5 to $730.

For your purchase to qualify, the product must be purchased for use in your own home. Your own home is defined as your primary residence or a secondary residence if it is maintained primarily for your own use and not as an investment. You may also receive a discount on an appliance purchased for a dependent if you claim that dependent for income tax purposes under IRS rules.

If you return or dispose of the product in less than six months, you must repay the full discount to the Company, unless you give the product to an eligible dependent.

The Company reserves the right to verify, through home inspection, that you purchased the product for your own use (or for an eligible dependent).

In a 36-month period, you can receive a discount on a maximum of:

  • Two microwave ovens;
  • Two water filtration systems;
  • Four room air conditioners; and
  • One model from each of the following major appliance categories:
    - Compactor
    - Dehumidifier
    - Dishwasher
    - Disposal
    - Dryer
    - Freezer
    - Icemaker
    - Oven (built-in)
    - Range cook top/hood (built-in)
    - Range or built-in cooking center
    - Range accessories
    - Refrigerator
    - Refrigerator (compact)
    - Refrigerator (accessories)
    - Washer
    - Washer/dryer (compact)
    - Water softener


Eligible Company products are sold under several brand names, such as GE, Hotpoint, Monogram and Profile. The list of eligible products and models is subject to change from time to time.

Discounts are not available on all models, so you'll need to verify that you have selected one that is eligible. In addition, discounts are not available on consumer electronics products, such as radios, clocks, videocassette recorders or televisions that have the GE or RCA logo.

Current product information and discount amounts are available online or from the GE Answer Center at 1-800-626-2000, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  2. Alternatively, you can purchase GE Appliances directly from the retail dealer of your choice or from your builder if you are building a new house. If you purchase from a dealer or through your builder, complete all the terms of the sale and delivery with the dealer or builder.

    - The dealer's or builder's name and address;
    - The products purchased and their complete model numbers; and
