3 Reasons Why December is the Best Time to Buy a Car

Has anyone ever told you about the 3 reasons why December is the best time to buy a car? By now, you and almost every other person across the United States are probably still racing around trying to finish your holiday shopping. Because of this, we can perhaps safely assume that the last thing you could imagine yourself doing at this time of the year is purchasing a shiny new car.

Why You Should Buy a New Car in December

Historical data suggest that December is the perfect time to swing the down payment for that new ride.  Veteran Car Donations can give you 3 good reasons why getting yourself a brand-new car in December makes a whole lot of sense.

  1. Highest discounts!

When December comes, showrooms become the loneliest places on earth because most shoppers fix their eyes on items such as a bottle of perfume for mom, a necktie for dad or toys for the kids.

However, just like most of us, dealers still have to pay their bills and buy their gifts. That’s why there’s a very big chance that they’ll be in the mood to do whatever it takes to get you buying the vehicles they’re selling.

After every quarter of the year, the half-asleep sales exec who greets you as soon as you step inside the quiet showroom will get bonuses for selling cars. Their bosses will get rewards for hitting sales targets, and car dealerships will be rewarded by the car manufacturers for every single vehicle they sell. December is both the end of the year and the end of the fourth quarter. Do you realize that all their bonuses are resting on whether you buy that car or not?

The moment you express your interest in doing business with them, don’t be surprised if they snatch your hand off because the bonuses that they’ll receive for hitting their targets will definitely offset the huge discounts they’d likely give on the car. Everyone becomes a winner: You’ll get a new car for the best price; the dealer hits their target, and the car manufacturer adds another sold vehicle to their yearly total.

  1. Safe ride!

The strongest car-selling season happens in spring when eager car buyers decide to replace their old jalopies before autumn and winter bear down on them and their vehicles sputter and cough through the cold.

The question is, can your clunker survive through another tough winter? If you’re not so sure about this, will you be willing to spend a fortune on repairs if it can’t? If you don’t want to risk your safety when the threat of freezing rains and snow comes in December, it is best if you lock down a reliable car.

  1. Reward yourself!

People who have been working their fingers to the bone since the beginning of the year always have something to look forward to before the year ends—holiday bonuses from their generous employers! Having kept your nose to the grindstone since January and gotten every person you love something nice for Christmas, don’t you think you deserve to reap the rewards of your boosted income? Go ahead, buy yourself a brand-new car this December!

What You Can Do with Your Old Car

Now that you’ve decided to head down to the dealership, you’re probably thinking about what you’re going to do with your old car. Why not consider donating it to Veteran Car Donations? Aside from the fact that you can get rid of it for free and enjoy a top tax deduction for your generosity to boot, you’ll also get to touch the lives of our nation’s heroes—our former servicemen and women who fought for us and risked their lives to defend our freedoms and keep our nation safe.

Even as we celebrate the joyous holiday season, many of these veterans will have little to be happy about as they continue to suffer from service-connected disabilities, physical and mental health issues, lack of jobs, and homelessness due to poverty and lack of support. Your car donation for their benefit will thus mean the world for them.

We auction off all vehicles we receive for donation and use the generated funds to help our nonprofit partners in providing them with mortgage-free and specially adapted homes, free physical and mental health care services, educational scholarships, career development, employment opportunities, and many other benefits.
