Audi Offering $3,000 Loyalty Bonuses
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 RydeShopper to maximize discounts on these vehicles.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
