Black Friday kicks off holiday shopping, and more manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon as a way of starting their year-end clearance sales. This year presents its own challenges as the industry sorts through a year that has seen the pandemic shut down production. Only now are inventory levels returning to normal. As a result, many makes are launching their Black Friday and Holiday Sales Events to show that they are in the game. But dig down, and you’ll find fewer incentives on models in short supply and more generous offers on slower moving products, like midsize sedans and compact cars.
The deals will also differ from past practices. Gone are the big discounts or cashback offers, and in their place, you are likely to find more lease deals, 90-day no-payment and zero/low-interest loan offers from the manufacturers’ captive finance arms. We’ve rounded up a few of the best deals for the day after Thanksgiving to help make shopping a little easier if you plan to head to the dealership or shop virtually for the car of your dreams.
As coronavirus cases tick up across the country, you may not be able to visit the dealership in person on the biggest shopping day of the year. Many deals can are available online, though. Depending on where you live, check with the individual dealers to see how they keep everyone safe. You’ll likely need to schedule test drives and appraisals very early to avoid crowding and be sure that you have enough time to check out the vehicle you want.
It also pays to know what you’re shopping for even before you venture out to a dealership. Be prepared for longer-than-normal-waits as the dealership sanitize vehicles and safely work with customers. It pays to come preapproved for financing. You should also do a quick check online to ensure that your local dealer offers the same discounts we mention here, as some are location-based and available only to well-qualified buyers with good credit.
