Dealerships aren’t messing around when they’re advertising great holiday savings that car shoppers can take advantage of during the holidays. They even spruce their cars up with big red bows to remind you what a great gift to get yourself, and just in time for Christmas.
Salesmen are hustling to make their sales quotas and bonuses, while dealerships are trying to move the older models off the lot, to make room for the newest models that are set to roll in.
We’ll share with you several important bits of information that will not only get you in the right vehicle but also enjoy the holiday extra savings by buying your car at the right time.
Best Months and Time of the Month to Buy a Car
It’s been proven that between the months of October through December are the best times to buy a vehicle throughout the year. Keep in mind that the percentage of savings is usually better during this time. We also encourage you to not only buy a car at the end of the month but also at the end of a dealership’s quarter, which is March, June, September, or December.
Black Friday Doorbuster Deals
While everyone is hustling around retail stores to fight over that cheap 60 inch TV, you can head over to your dealership where you’ll find amazing doorbuster deals on Black Friday. It’s known for car dealers as one of the biggest days of the year. Their promotions and deals could save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars by purchasing your vehicle on this day.
End of the Year Mark Downs
With the holidays upon us, December 27-29 is an excellent day to buy a car. You’ll notice a huge decrease percentage-wise as the end of the year draws near. That’s because dealerships don’t want to be looking at older models in their lots come the first of the year. If you’ve had your eye on that lime green Dodge Challenger all summer, this might be the best time for you to go in and claim it.
While some experts will tell you not to wait until the last day of the year to buy a car, New Year’s Eve is still a day you can take advantage of some great savings.
New Year’s Day = An Excellent Day
Just because the holidays are moving into the rearview mirror, doesn’t mean New Year’s Day is too late. In fact, it’s known as one, if not, the best day to buy a vehicle. For many dealerships, January 1st and 2nd fall into their December quarters, so any last-minute sales they can get, the better. With this in mind, you can probably get your vehicle for a steal.
These are several days throughout the holiday season that will help you make the most of the holiday sales at your local dealership. Are you planning on getting a new ride this holiday season? Have you taken advantage of holiday sales on a vehicle in the past? We’d love to hear about it.
