Dealer Incentives Reason #1:

It’s Quota time! Sales associates are motivated to move inventory to meet end of the month, end of the quarter and end of the year sales goals – passing on deep discounts to vehicle shoppers, like you.

Dealer Incentives Reason #2:

Dealers are determined to move the remainder of last year’s models off the lot to make room for this year’s makes and models.

Dealer Incentives Reason #3:

Turn on the television in December and you will likely be inundated with vehicle commercials, that tug at you heart, while advertising special holiday pricing and amazing offers. Manufacturers are driven to beat sales forecasts and earn bragging rights.

Dealer Incentives Reason #4:

Dealers are more willing to make a deal between Christmas and New Year’s Eve because of anticipated sales’ slowdowns in January and February – when temperatures hover below freezing, snow flies and ice thickens on vehicles sitting in the lot.

Can’t make it to the dealer before January 1st? No worries, New Year’s Day and the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday rank at or near the top for cashing in on dealer incentives.
