Black Friday & Cyber Monday Car Deals 2017

Holiday car dealsBlack Friday (and Cyber Monday) will have some of the best deals of the year, but on the busiest of retail days, salesman will be slammed.  So try to do your test drives in advance so you can focus on getting a good price.   Dealerships will be flooded with shoppers and you will likely have to wait in line for a salesman.  Many will open at 6am so get there early if you do want to window shop.  But to skip the frenzy of crowds entirely, get car prices online and only go to the dealership to close the deal.

The entire Thanksgiving holiday week including Black Friday and Cyber Monday present a perfect storm of conditions that make it easy to find discounts and deals.  This is because:

  1. Car dealers must compete for shoppers' attention against all types of retailers and will offer promotions to get you to visit.
  2. Cyber Monday is the last week of the month and salesmen and dealerships are trying to reach both their month-end and year-end sales quotas before the end of the year.  The loss they take from a couple sales may be greatly outweighed by the bonus they could possibly earn.
  3. The 2017 model year is ending and salesman are scrambling to get cars off the lot before January.
  4. Customers have come to expect all retailers to offer big one-day deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so car dealerships want to take advantage of that expectation with special promotions.

Below are some of the best Black Friday car deals.  For a full listing of all current manufacturer offers and incentives check out Edmund’s Deals of the Month.
