Infiniti Offers Rare Cash Rebates
It's generally rare for a luxury brand to offer cash rebates - mainly because there's a negative stigma attached to them. Luxury brands usually offer incentives in hidden forms, however, Lexus played around with cash-rebates late last year which looks like it's inspiring others to experiment as well.
CarsDirect this week summarized the new cash rebates being offered by Infiniti (see below), with up to $2,000 on the 2017 Q50 and QX60. These rebates expire May 31st. It's possible Infiniti may only offer these rebates this month - in line with Memorial day, so if you've been considering purchasing or leasing an Infiniti, doing so at the end of this month may offer a great opportunity.
|2017 Infiniti Q50 Sedan||$2,000 toward purchases, $1,000 toward leases|
|2017 Infiniti Q60 Coupe||$1,000 toward lease or purchase|
|2017 Infiniti QX50 SUV||$500 toward purchases|
|2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV||$2,000 toward purchases, $1,000 toward leases|
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.
