Toyota Offering $1,000 Twitter Incentive

December 15, 2011

If you're planning on buying a Toyota between now and January 3, 2012, read the following very carefully because we're going to show you how to get an additional $1,000 cash back.

Toyota is offering a special "Twitter Incentive" called Shareathon. If you buy a Toyota vehicle and tweet about it on your Twitter account, they will send you a $500 prepaid debit card.

For every friend who retweets the message within 48 hours, Toyota will add $50 to the card. There is a limit of 10 retweets allowed which would bring the total on the debit card to $1,000.

This is free cash folks! It doesn't matter what kind of deal you negotiated or what kind of incentives you already received on the vehicle - the Shareathon debit card is on top of all that.

Toyota Twitter Promotion

Here are the steps you need to take to get the extra money:

  1. You must first register online at by December 21st.
  2. Only the first 140 people who register each day starting at 11 AM EST will qualify. If there are no spots left today, try again the next day (but keep in mind December 21 is the last day you can register - set a reminder for 11 AM)
  3. Next, you must purchase a Toyota by January 3, 2012
  4. Tweet about the purchase through the Toyota Shareaton site
  5. Ask your friends to retweet the message within 48 hours

There you have it, you just saved an additional $500 and possibly up to $1,000.

If you're not familiar with Twitter, don't worry - it's easy and free to use. Just visit to sign up.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise 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.
