Actually, we overpaid for the car as it was spring. We would have been better off buying in the fall.
We're does your wife like to shop? Maybe we should both profit her with the stock! Let her know our day spa is always open for her. Haha
Because you're still most likely getting the loan from a bank.

When I bought my car I got 0% financing, which really turned out to a normal BMO car loan, but they discounted it by several thousand dollars so that I'd have the same payment. I then transferred the balance to my LOC which had a lower rate than the car loan.
Kinda makes you wonder when they will start with negative interest rates.... Haha

If you go to 7 years, the biweekly payment will drop to $99, for a total of only $18k, that's another THOUSAND DOLLARS, by using our special extra low payments, we're actually paying you to buy a car today!
From a business mindset I'd love to go for this. There are definitely enough financially illiterate Around to make millions from.
However, from a compassionate human being point of view, I must decline as I would much rather help educate the masses and save them some heartache by being informed.
