Take Advantage of End of June Savings

June 26th, 2014

The end of the month is upon us. Dealerships around the country are gearing up to get the most out of the last weekend of June and close the sales month. Dealerships and automakers had record May sales, some being the best May sales in the history of the companies. That means they will do whatever they can this weekend to get you into a new car, sometimes saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars in the process.

Here are a couple of tips to use when you are negotiating this weekend. First, get the invoice prices of the vehicle you are interested in buying at CompetingCarPrices. Dealerships mark up their vehicles in order to allow some room for negotiation of the price. Secondly, check to see if there are any additional rebates or incentives that your vehicle may qualify for. Don’t mention them until you have negotiated the best price and then you can save extra.

Lastly, if you are close to getting the deal done but need to get that last edge, mention that you’ll come back in July and renegotiate. They will want to get the deal done, and it might just be the necessary push to make them take your offer.

Remember to check to get the invoice prices and incentive that may be available.
