November 2012 Black Friday Weekend-Cyber Monday deals ONLINE!
Dealers will be hoping to make the most of walk-in traffic driven by pent-up demand delivered thanks to totaled cars from Hurricane Sandy and aging junkers past their prime, as consumers hope to grab deep discounts on remaining 2012 model year leftovers and extra discount incentives on 2013’s.
Fast forward to the new age of highly targeted marketing in the automotive world.
In market consumers are to be rewarded with knowledge, as the information regarding top tier discounts, deep incentives and higher rebates is found online.
Factory and dealer websites share exclusive information.
You won’t learn about 0% financing for up to 60 months, combined with rebates for factory financing or competitive trade-ins by asking the salesperson on the lot, as many of these nuggets are delivered on a “need to know” basis. It’s called negotiating, and to find out what is available, under what circumstances is buried online, to be found by the sharp CYBER shopper.
EXAMPLE: Gaudin Motor Company is offering an ONLINE ONLY deal, to be officially announced on MONDAY, November 19th, and only available when the shopper submits the form for a special certificate. Each certificate is numbered and exclusive to THE SPECIFIC Vehicle purchase made during the Black Friday Weekend and Cyber Monday sales event.
Auto Manufacturers target specific models with SPECIALS for Thanksgiving Holiday Sales.
Watch the small print for details on specific slow-moving or heavy inventory models on the lot between now and the end of the month. Visit the manufacturer’s websites for the rules and conditions regarding combining offers.
In many cases a low interest rate of 0%-2.9% may not be as valuable to someone paying off their car loan early, over taking the $2000+ rebate upfront. If the car is totaled or stolen before the low rate auto loan is exhausted, the vehicle owner may have lost on the deal through no fault of their own.
Look for car deal specials to include: 0% financing for up to 60 mos. or 1.9% for 72 mos., rebates or some combination of both.
Loyal or Competitive car owners, with or without having to trade, may get additional bonus’.
