Tips on Mercedes-Benz Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

Special offers from Mercedes typically don't change much month to month. That's quite different from competitors like Lexus, which are usually "hot" or "cold" one month to the next. Leasing continues to be extremely popular, which may come as no surprise. Expect to see a mix of regular offers as well as Sign & Drive promotions.

Unlike mainstream brands, Mercedes doesn't advertise rebates. Instead, it routinely gives dealers unadvertised dealer cash incentives to help price cars more aggressively. In general, we find that shoppers are able to better take advantage of such offers with larger dealers. You won't see any of this advertised, which means you'll have to request a quote to see the best price.

The best discounts tend to be on slower-selling sedans like the E-Class and S-Class. Lower-priced models like the CLA-Class tend to rarely see deep discounts. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of the brand's SUVs, we often see extremely little discounting on models like the GLC-Class and GLS-Class, so expect to pay a premium on those with few exceptions.
