It's not all that often you can buy a new car for 50% off, right? You may not jump at the opportunity if the vehicle in question is something like an Aveo, but when we heard about this half-price deal for a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid, we about fell out of our office chairs to be the first in line.
As it turns out, we should have just kept our bums planted because the whole deal is carried out online. There's no reason to rush down to your local dealership for this one. Here's how you can participate and get the chance of a lifetime. Well, maybe it's not that good of a deal, but it's close.
Sometime tomorrow, American Express' online marketplace called Daily Wish will offer up a half-price Fusion Hybrid. You can walk away with a brand-new, 36-plus miles-per-gallon hybrid for just $14,337. Here's the catch: You must be an American Express cardholder to participate. Oh, and nobody knows exactly when the Fusion Hybrid will be up for grabs on the site. The specific time won't be released until tomorrow morning. So if you want a chance to get one heck of a bargain on a great hybrid, head on over to the Daily Wish website to sign up and set your reminders. Follow the jump for more details.
