Many thrifty shoppers may not realize that one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year happens to fall in February. The reason Presidents day is so popular when it comes to sales and deals is the fact that it is two months after Christmas and two months before the summer travel season. This means a large number of shoppers have a little bit of extra cash to spend; especially if they have saved the first few months of the year and have received a tax refund check.
With this in mind, it might be a good time to consider looking at new or used cars and trucks. With the latest models coming out, 2018 and 2019, it could be a great time to snag a deal on a gently used vehicle. You could save up to $10,000 on a 2017 Ram pickup truck simply because it is not the latest model year. For your friends, it will likely look the exact same, but you will have the peace of mind knowing you saved a boatload by getting a slightly used truck.
When looking for the best Presidents Day Ram truck sales in 2018, remember to do plenty of research. Most car dealerships within 300 miles of you will be willing to cut you a deal to get a vehicle off their lot. If you are willing to take the trip across the state, you could save even more. This is a tactic that many car shoppers use to get the price even lower. If you live in Orlando and you notice there is a great opportunity in Jacksonville, tell the salesperson you have to spend extra money on gas and get a ride north. They will likely be willing to work with you and may even pick you up.
We have heard instances in which a dealership will drive a car or truck across multiple states if the buyer is willing to spend the money on the vehicle today. Keep this in mind when attempting to negotiate the best Presidents Day car sales this year.
