Best Bonus Incentives This Month

September 6, 2012

Most car shoppers are aware that manufacturers provide cash back rebates, finance, and lease deals to help sell their vehicles. What some don't realize is that they also provide bonus incentives.

These types of incentives are usually not advertised heavily. They include "Conquest Cash" if you currently own a competing vehicle, and "Trade Assistance", which is a bonus given to those who trade-in a vehicle at the time of purchase. There are also "Loan Bonuses" if you finance your purchase, and "Loyalty" bonuses if you currently own the same make of vehicle.

Here is a list of the largest bonus incentives available right now: Be sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder to get even larger discounts.

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.
