The Best Hidden Dealer Rebates Available Now
Only savvy car buyers know that auto companies provide dealers with hidden factory-to-dealer cash to help move inventory during slow times.
Dealerships use this factory cash (aka "marketing support") through discounting prices for consumers.
These direct-to-dealer rebates comprise a significant part of incentive programs that also include direct-to-customer rebates, low-interest financing (including 0% APR), and special lease deals.
While there is no guarantee that a dealer will pass all of the hidden incentive over to you, your chances are higher if you use our car buying method.
Here are some the best factory-to-dealer cash offers for July 2011. Act fast because most expire on August 1.
