Special Bonus Offers in December

December 22, 2016

Many car shoppers don't realize some manufacturers will actually pay you to switch brands. For example - if you own a Toyota, then Hyundai may offer you a special bonus of up to $1,500 for switching brands.

These types of incentives are called "Conquest Cash" and there are several manufacturers offering these at the moment. They range up to $6,419 this month, and are in addition to any other incentives currently available.

Manufacturers don't like losing sales to conquest offers, so they offer "Loyalty Cash" to combat them. Loyalty bonuses reward you for staying loyal to the brand if you already own one of their vehicles. Loyalty rebates mostly range from $500 to $5,000, but the Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid goes as high as $6,419.

Below is a list of the best Conquest and Loyalty bonus offers found nationwide. Your local dealers may offer slightly different bonus amounts due to regional differences in incentives programs, so I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise for the best savings and to find out the exact bonuses being offered.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar 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.
