Toyota, Nissan Offering "Secret" $500 Rebate
From time to time, manufacturers have been known to offer "secret" incentives through Edmunds.com. I received a tip this week from one of my readers, alerting me to a special $500 rebate being offered by Toyota and Nissan (thank you Jennifer for the tip!).
These manufacturers are currently targeting Edmunds.com visitors who are browsing the Honda Accord section. Both are offering an exclusive $500 rebate. This is a bonus incentive on top of any other incentives being offered by the manufacturers.
Some of the rebates seem to be limited to certain models and regions. For example, as I was browsing around for a Honda Accord, I saw an ad for $500 off a Toyota Corolla. Our tipster was able to purchase a 2012 Toyota Camry with a similar rebate, so you may need to browse around until you see the correct ads pop up. Remember, these rebates can be used on top of any other rebate or incentive being offered.
So how do you get these rebates? You need to browse the Honda Accord pages on Edmunds.com. Look for ads from Nissan and Toyota. Some people reported special ads that pop up (make sure to turn off any pop-up blockers). When I was browsing, I saw the ads in the pages themselves.
I recommend you use the special rebate AFTER negotiating a deal through CarWoo
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
