Did you know that the best time to buy a car is late in the year and late in the month? For car buyers, December has the years highest discounts and best incentives. Car dealerships have to meet sales quotas, which typically break down into yearly, quarterly, and monthly sales goals. If you begin shopping late in the year, your salesperson might have one or more of those quotes in mind and possibly be able to offer you a better deal. Be aware that sales deadlines don’t always sync up with the calendar month, so the best days to shop are on the 26th, 27th, or 28th day of the month. Use the Holiday sales to your advantage. We’ve been continuously seeing all the holiday themed commercials with car dealerships urging you to shop and save big. There are a lot of really good deals that are being advertised now that you can take advantage of. An important note is that time is your best negotiating technique.
