Audi Offering $3,000 Loyalty Bonuses

July 5, 2012

Most car shoppers are familiar with cash-back rebates, but there are other incentives that are sometimes overlooked.

One such incentive is Loyalty Bonuses. Manufacturers don't advertise them heavily, and sometimes salespeople aren't even aware of them.

These incentives are cash bonuses given to consumers who replace their current vehicle with a new one from the same brand. Right now, Audi is in fierce competition with BMW and Mercedes, and so they're offering some of the largest loyalty bonuses right now.

For example, the 2012 Audi A3 and A4 come with a whopping $3,000 loyalty bonus for current Audi owners. That's on top of any other incentives that may be currently available.

Volvo, Kia, and Mitsubishi are also offering loyalty bonuses of up to $1,500. Keep in mind these bonuses may vary depending on where you live.

As always, I recommend you use the free CarWoo Deal Finder to maximize discounts on these vehicles.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
