Cash-back offers are a popular way for automakers and dealers to entice new car shoppers to opt for their vehicles over others. Cash deals are pretty simple to understand: The dealer generally takes the advertised cash amount off of the final agreed upon price of the car. Think of a cash-back offer as a coupon worth a few hundred or thousand dollars.

With help from our friends at TrueCar, we've come up with a list of five great cash-back incentives ongoing this month. These big cash deals are worth from $1,500 up to $3,000, depending on the model.

Head through to see some vehicles with great cash-back deals right now.
