Unpaid endorsement: Fighting Chance
Once in a while, I’m going to use my blog to sing the praises of a product or service or whatever – something or someone that I’ve had a very very very positive experience with in my life.
FIGHTINGCHANCE.COM is an awesome site that WILL save you money when you’re buying a car. (If you don’t save money, you didn’t follow instructions.)
I’ve saved at least $2,000 on car purchases thanks to the site.
Fighting Chance is both an information resource and a smarter process for buying a car. They have tons of information on all kinds of new cars, and for only $40 or so (and $10 per additional set), you’ll get everything about the make and model, unadvertised deals, and most importantly, the actual dealer invoice price. (That’s what the dealer paid to the manufacturer for the car.)
The concept is that if you follow the process (briefly described below), you should never pay more than $500 over dealer invoice price – which is usually a whole lot less than the sticker price.
There are slightly different processes for buying or leasing – but they walk you through it.
If you want to avoid the typical car-buying process AND save money, then try this.
Or go to the dealership and sit there, waiting for the salesman to “talk to his manager” 54 times.
