The Biggest Cash Rebate Increases

May 10, 2012

Good things come to those who wait, and for those of you who held off buying a car last month, here are the top cash-back rebate increases for the month of May.

There are 9 vehicles that have had cash-back rebate increases of 100%, with the 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche being the largest increase - up to $5,000 cash back. The Avalanche is set to be discontinued in 2013, so this year is your final chance to get the unique pickup-truck/SUV combo vehicle.

In total, there are 28 vehicles that have had some sort of cash-back increase, including the 2012 Ford Focus, Explorer, and Escape.

All of these vehicles come with extra bonus cash such as loyalty (if you currently own the same brand vehicle), conquest (if you own a competing vehicle), and Trade Assistance (if you trade-in a vehicle at time of purchase).
