Toyota, Nissan Offering "Secret" $500 Rebate
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
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.
