Best Car Deals & Incentives for May

May 19, 2016

Incentives have increased in May compard to April each of the last four years. This week, Cars.com and Kelly Blue Book took a look at the current offers and released their list of what they consider the best car deals for May.

KBB looked at deals available on vehicles for the entire month of May (most of these deals should be available through summer as well), while Cars.com looked at the 100 most popular vehicles and calculated which ones have the most inventory available coupled with the largest incentives.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see what kind of deals are being offered in your area.

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.
