A couple of days ago, we published a car buyer’s guide on deals and promos. One of the promos that covered and explained in the said article is the low monthly promo.
There's a lot of hot deals to choose from on Philkotse
As mentioned, in the aforementioned car buyer’s guide, a low monthly promo ensures that the monthly amortization for a certain car model or variant is affordable. Usually though, a low monthly promo will often come with a higher downpayment, which usually ranges from 40 to 50 percent of the car’s sticker price. These promos also usually come with a 60-month term.
To this end, these promos are suitable for someone who has managed to save up, but do not want to be bothered by hefty monthly payments. This makes more room in your budget for other monthly expenses like your housing, kid’s education, etc.
So, what are some examples of this type of promo? Well, here are some that are currently listed on Philkotse Hot Deals section, which in turn is under the Best Deals For Every-Juan campaign.
