In the market to buy a car? You might be able to cut a deal depending what time of year you do your shopping.
Usually a time for great deals on TVs and other retail items, the Black Friday game is now played by a variety of different businesses, car dealerships included. Do research ahead of time to see where you can get incentives for your Black Friday shopping spree.
End of the Year
At the end of the calendar year, dealerships are trying to make quotas and bump up their yearly sales numbers, so they’re more likely to offer deals and let you squeak by with a lower price tag in order for them to make that sale.
Veteran’s Day is coming up in November, but this is a year-round tactic – whenever there’s a holiday weekend, dealerships have a tendency to offer incentives to bring in the crowd that has an extra day off work.
End of the Month
Similar to the calendar year sales on a small scale, end-of-the-month deals happen usually because dealerships are trying to meet a quota.
Often, weekends are the busiest times for dealerships, which means you’ll get less attention and assistance on a Saturday afternoon. Stopping in on a Tuesday or Wednesday when foot traffic has died down often means a better experience.
