Black Friday conjures up dreams of scoring flat-screen TVs, video games, jewelry and winter clothing for super-low prices.
But after the gobble gobble, think about some vroom vroom.
The day after Thanksgiving is the best day to buy a used car, according to iSeeCars.com, which found 33.1% more deals that day than on the average day. No. 2 on the list was Veterans Day (32.5%), followed by Thanksgiving (30.6%), Columbus Day (30.5%) and Martin Luther King Jr. Day (29.4%). The worst times to buy a used car are July 4 and Mothers Day, both with about 28% fewer deals.
The website, which aggregates used-car for-sale listings, studied data from 40 million-plus used-car sales from 2013 to 2015.
“What you’re seeing is dealers and car sellers taking advantage of people out shopping,” Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.com, told the Free Press. “They want to buy something. They have a glut of inventory they need to move out. A lot of used cars are being traded in. They have to move those, too. Why not take advantage?”
