Costco Offers Special Discounts on Volvo
Although you can get a better deal using our Car Buying Method, if you don't have 2 to 3 hours to spend on car shopping, the Costco Auto Buying program is a great alternative which gives you haggle-free pricing on a new car.
And this season, Costco has teamed up with Volvo for a special Winter Savings Promotion, where customers can find attractive deals on the 2010 XC70, XC90 and XC60.
As part of the promotion, all three of the models can be purchased at invoice price, plus an additional $500 off for the XC70 and the XC90. Furthermore, buyers may take advantage of alternative lease cash on any of the models.
For the XC90, it's $4,250 on 3.2 7-passenger models and $6,250 on the T5, and XC70 offers $3,250 on its 3.2 models and $2,500 on its T6s. As for the XC60, the deals include $4,000 on the 3.2 FWD, $4,750 on the 3.2 AWD, and $3,000 on the T6.
Aside from that, each of the models is treated with Volvo Allowance cash: $3,750 on the XC70, and $500 on the XC90 and XC60. Other benefits include owner loyalty of $1,000 and $1,500 on the XC70 and XC90, respectively, and a $500 Costco cash card for filling out a post-purchase survey.
Only Costco members can take advantage of these deals, which are good from now until January 4, 2010. To get the invoice promotion, you must have been a member since at least October 31 of this year.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
