Lexus Offering Cash Rebates Again
This month, Lexus has re-introduced cash back rebates on nearly all models. They originally offered cash-back rebates last August, but discontinued them at the end of the year.
But unlike last time, these cash rebates are in addition to some great lease deals (last time it was an either/or situation). For example, the Lexus GS is offering $2,000 cash back or lease payments that are $50 per month lower than previous months.
CarsDirect has an in-depth writeup on Lexus' new incentives strategy.

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.
