Deals of the week

Deals on two hot sedans and free money on a Nissan truck Add to ...

The end-of-summer fire sales are over, and now the savvy shopper needs to do more homework, more digging. The deals out there are not so obvious as they were at the end of the Dog Days of August.

In particular, Deals is interested in cash offers that can be combined with cut-rate financing rates or some other incentive. We’ve found four interesting ones.

More related to this story

The richest in terms of cash offers is on the Nissan Titan pickup: a $5,000 factory discount that can be stacked with 0.0 per cent financing for up to seven years. Seven years of free money!

Current Chrysler leaseholders might want to take advantage of the $3,000 in cash Chrysler Canada has for them when they purchase a new Jeep Liberty. That deal can be combined with 1.9 per cent financing for three years.

Two hot-selling compact sedans come with stackable deals, too. The Chevrolet Cruze is available with a $1,000 discount for qualified current leaseholders and that money can be stacked with 0.0 per cent financing for up to four years. And the Volkswagen Jetta TDI diesel is being pushed with a $500 factory-to-dealer discount that can be combined with 1.9 per cent financing for four years.
