What is a Bidding War and Why is it Free?

Presidents Day Weekend Car Sales 2019

Presidents Day Weekend Car Sales

Presidents Day Weekend is often a great time to buy a car and this year is no different.  Three day weekends usually mean some of the biggest promotions and deepest discounts of the year.

Car salesmen are offering special deals over Presidents Day Weekend for these reasons:

  1. As the winter draws to a close, dealers want to get rid of SUV's and all wheel drive vehicles before demand dries up in the spring.
  2. Salesmen and dealerships are trying to reach their month-end quotas before the end of February.  The loss they take from a couple sales may be greatly outweighed by the bonus they could possibly earn.
  3. Three day weekends mean people have an extra day to shop. So dealerships will ramp up their sales efforts with “events” and other promotions.
  4. Some dealerships will offer a bonus to the salesman who makes the most sales over a long weekend.
  5. Most of the winter is historically a sales slump and dealers know it will be tough to get car buyers to brave the cold and do any shopping.

Current List of All Manufacturer Incentives for January 2019

Below are some of the best Presidents Day car deals.  Please note, I purposely do not include lease offers as I strongly believe leasing is almost always a bad deal for the customer.

To get the lowest discount prices use Car Deal Finder and see offers from multiple car dealers.
