You know what I find interesting, when Pontiac dealerships were around I could buy a FOB from them for $45 bucks and this included programming... went to the local Chevy dealer and they want $129 for the dang thing. These things aren't that critical to me, it's my wife's car but she has gone through three so after the last one we decided it was just as easy to stick the key in the lock and turn it, takes half a second. The FOB's for these cars are cheap and break with little effort, I have a Dodge truck and a Volvo 960, we toss those keys around just like the Pontiac's and have never had to replace them, we love the car just gave up on the FOB's... my Suburban was the same way, GM needs to find a different company to make their FOB's.
Good luck on the programming, my experience was that you had to go to a dealer or find someone that knows how. I know on the BMW I had, I just had to point the FOB at the car, hold the lock button for ten seconds and it would program it that easy.
