How to Find the Best Black Friday Deals at Used Car Lots in Cincinnati

November 27th, 2014 by

Happy Thanksgiving!

After you’ve recovered from your tryptophan coma tomorrow, you may want to venture out to scope out all the amazing deals that will be available on everything from toys to trucks. If you are in the market for a new car, now might be a great time to look. Many used car lots in Cincinnati, including McCluskey Chevrolet, will have sales going during Black Friday to allow you to get an affordable car for even less money.

Here are a few tips for how you can cut through all the noise and find the very best deals for your next car:

Sign Up for the Mailing List

When cars go on sale, you have to act fast. One way to make sure you are there first is to get notified first. Many dealerships have an e-mail list, which will notify customers of big sales. Some may even offer exclusives to those who have signed up for the e-mail list.

Even if the dealership doesn’t have an e-mail list, it may offer alerts when the price on a specific car drops. If you are interested in a specific vehicle, sign up for the alert, and you’ll know right away if the price drops.

Pay Attention to the Fine Print

Not everything that seems like a good deal actually is. If you look a little closer, you may notice that there are a lot of conditions associated with the offer. For example, you might get $1,000 off, but only if you spend at least $20,000, and you may have to pay a lot of dealer fees. You might end up saving more at another dealership where you didn’t have to pay as many fees and you found a lower-priced car.

Make sure you read all the fine print before you agree to a “deal” that ends up costing you much more.

Check the Financing Terms

A $10,000 car can end up costing you much, much more if you don’t get a great interest rate on the financing. Make sure that any deal you get also comes along with great financing terms. Otherwise, you’ll end up spending much more on a “deal” than you would for a higher-priced car at another dealership that offers you better financing.
