What Do Recent Grads, College Students and Military Have in Common? Auto Lease Discounts

Over 40,000 new cars are sold each day, according to 247wallst.com. With so many people needing a new ride all the time, it’s helpful to know how to save money on one. There is one discount you can get just for being who you are. It’s the demographic incentive discount. Many dealerships offer it to the following people.

  • Recent College Grads
  • College Students
  • The Disabled
  • Active Military and Their Families
  • First Responders
  • Uber Drivers

You can find most of these discounts at any dealership in the United States, all year round. The exceptions are the first responders’ and Uber drivers’ incentives. Although the First the Responders’ incentive is a Ford thing, dealerships like Greenwich Honda and others offer it. For more info about Uber, see below.

How Big Is the Discount?

Typically speaking, it’s around $500 but it’s rarely difficult to find one that’s much higher. You just have to be open to the model. It may not seem like a great deal, but $500 could easily be around half of your fees and interest, especially if you’re looking for an inexpensive car. Disabled drivers get discounts in the form of reimbursements for their mobility equipment. Most dealerships offer up to $1,000 towards the equipment and the labor required for installation.

Uber Driver Programs

Are you a resident of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Sacramento, Seattle, Tacoma, Maryland, Virginia, DC, Georgia, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, or Nashville? If so, you’re eligible for Uber’s XChange Leasing program.

As Uber’s website states, you can “enjoy 36-month lease plans on new and used cars from Toyota, GM, Ford, Nissan, Hyundai, Chrysler, and more with the freedom to opt-out after just 30 days. There are some important stipulations related to this, which you can read at the bottom of Uber’s XChange homepage.

Some manufacturers offer discounts to go along with Uber programs. For example, as of today, Kia is offering a $1,000 discount to Uber drivers.

Are Any Incentives Worth More than $500?

There are plenty of incentives worth more than $500. A quick search reveals $2,000 discounts on Ford Fiesta, Subaru Legacy, Kia Sorento and Lincoln MKC. These discounts are for the general public!

What Our customers are saying

The lease rate I got by calling the dealer was $67 higher than the rate I got from Car Leasing Secrets. It’s all about the local competition. So happy with my Benz!

This is probably the easiest way to get quotes and compare them. I got one from each dealer in my city. One of them was surprisingly low. The quotes are free. No worries there.

What a great way to shop around! I wanted a Corolla. There’s only one Toyota dealership in my city but I got a quote for a Honda Civic and decided to go with that one because I got such a good offer.
