How to Get the Best Deal on Your New Vehicle

You are cruising down the highway in your old beat up vehicle, when a sleek new car zips on by. You can feel the envy and the desire creeping through your body. You begin to picture yourself in a brand new car, flying down the road, impressing the ladies, being the star of the town. For weeks you simply can’t shake the feeling that you need a new car, but you do have a limited budget for how much you can spend, and you don’t want just any car. You want the best that there is, but in order to get that from your local Hendrick Buick GMC Cadillac dealer, you are going to have to get one good deal. Here is a quick look at how you can get the best deal on your new vehicle.


If you want to get the best price for the new car of your dreams, it is extremely important that you be patient. Vehicles tend to go on special vehicles throughout the year, and you more than likely will be able to score a great deal that will give you a good financing option if you simply wait for it. You might also want to consider waiting for the newer models to come out. By waiting for this to happen, you will still be able to get a new car, but it will have a much cheaper price tag.


If you have a specific budget for your new vehicle, you should stick with it and shop until someone is able to meet your price. As long as your price is reasonable, it is very likely that you will be able to find a local Hendrick Buick GMC Cadillac dealer that will be able to satisfy your financial needs. In order to find this dealership, you will need to consider possibly travelling away from your town. If you establish a 2-3 hour radius from where you live and begin to look through dealerships, it is sure that you will find the deal that you want.

How Shoppers Can Prepare a Visit to a Car Dealer

For many citizens, having a car is essential. They need a vehicle because they live in a remote area without public transportation. Others own a car because they want the freedom to go wherever they want. That is not the case when you take a bus or train. Older vehicles need to be replaced when they are no longer reliable. That is, of course, not the only reason why you may be looking at an upgrade. You may not even have a car yet, but are eager to get one. When the time comes to visit a Ford dealer in Chicago, consider the following 3 preparation tips.

1. Know Your Price Limit

Take a look online at all the different cars on the market right now. If there is one thing that should be noticeable right away when exploring the inventory of several dealerships is that prices vary widely. Even pre-owned cars have different price tags. That is actually great, because it means that almost anyone can buy a car or truck today. On the other hand, you have to make sure that you can afford your new ride. Going too deep into debt may cramp your lifestyle for quite some time. You may also run out of cash at the end of the month, and your car will remain in the driveway because you have no money left for gas. How can you prevent these annoying situations? You calculate a budget and stick to it.

2. Check Your Credit Score

People finance a car when their savings are meager. Personal or car loans are only granted to responsible individuals with an acceptable credit score. Request a copy of your report from a main credit reporting company. By law, you are entitled to one free report per year. Start improving your rating at once if it is too low. Know that consumers with an excellent score often get a better interest rate.

3. Determine Your Requirements

A salesman at a Ford dealer in Chicago will ask potential customers which features they prefer in a car. Take ample time to compose your list. Ask your partner for his or her opinion if they are also driving the car, and maybe even help with the financing. Think about anything from the size and color, to the type of transmission and mileage.

Old Orchard Review And Giveaway 11-8-2013

I had the opportunity to review Old Orchard 100% juice blends in the 12 ounce frozen juice concentrate cans. I used to drink this type of juice all of the time when I was single. Now, I have to buy in bulk with a family of four. Around us, Publix is the best place to buy Old Orchard juice. They have a few varieties for us to choose from and my children love juice. We chose apple kiwi strawberry because this is what my two kids agreed on.

We did not get to try the new fruit and vegetable blend juices because they did not have them in our store. Here is information about them in case they are in your store.


Old Orchard Brands introduces its new line of Fruit & Veggie juice blends.
SPARTA, Mich., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — No need to break the bank at juice bars for all-natural fresh fruit and veggie-blended juices. Today, leading juice manufacturer Old Orchard Brands launches Fruit & Veggie, a new line of 100 percent natural fruit and vegetable juice blends available for the first time as a frozen fruit juice concentrate. Each 12-ounce container reconstitutes to six, 8-ounce servings and every glass contains a full serving of both fruit and vegetables.
Available in Blueberry Pomegranate, Peach Mango and Strawberry Banana varieties, Old Orchard Fruit & Veggie has a suggested retail price of just $1.47 per can and features no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Combining vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes and beets with fruits like peaches, mangos and strawberries makes for a delicious refreshment that’s appropriate as a better-for-you snack, too.  In addition to providing a full serving of fruit and vegetables, each 8-ounce glass provides 100 percent of the daily value of vitamin C, 50% of the daily value of vitamin A and boosts of calcium and iron.
“Blended fruit and vegetable drinks represent a growing consumer trend, but, up to this point, it’s been available in primarily shelf-stable bottles or juice boxes,” said Mark Saur, founder and CEO of Old Orchard Brands. “We’re able to leverage the frozen environment to create a preservative-free, natural option that is affordable, easy to store and eco-friendly due to the small packaging footprint.  We feel the value is unmatched, and we believe consumers will agree.”
Old Orchard fruit juice concentrates come in recyclable, lightweight plastic cans that are microwave safe, making thaw times a thing of the past.
Fruit & Veggie juice blends frozen concentrate can be found in the frozen juice aisle at Walmart and other leading retailers beginning this month.
12oz - 100% Juice - Apple Kiwi Strawberry

I have a water machine because I do not like the taste of water from the sink in Florida. I mixed the juice up and all of us love it. The taste is great and it is good for the entire family. I like juice better than the mixes that are filled up with sugar. Natural sugar is better than juice filled with imitation sugars and preservatives.

Sweet strawberry, tangy kiwi and tasty apple juices combine to create a flavorful 100% juice favorite that refreshes you and yours any time of day.
Counts as two fruit servings
120% DV Vitamin C
No Added Sugar
No Artificial Flavors, Colors, or Preservatives
Gluten Free
You know the Old Orchard juice taste good, but it is good for you too. They don't add anything into the juice, they just give you real juice that tastes good and is good for you. I have two kids and I try to give them food and drinks that are good for them. Old Orchard hit a home-run with these juice blends.

Here is your chance to win four coupons so you can try Old Orchard Frozen Fruit Juice Blends Yourself. You can also use the coupons for juice and vegetable blends if you find them near you.

This Is The Time Of Year To Shop For Killer Hats

There is nothing that accents an outfit or ensemble more than a really great hat; for many, wearing such apparel serves practical function in addition to being stylish. Whether keeping the sun or weather away from the face or if simply seeking a bit of flair to complete a look, there are fewer wardrobe investments that are as prudent as a well-fitting hat. 

When looking to buy hats from online retailers or local venues, there are numerous types found. Generally, the kinds of hats that will remain in-style and integral wardrobe components include the following:

- Western style hats including Outback, cowboy, and other western style variations
- Fashion type hats which includes fedoras, sport-style caps, and top-hats
- Seasonal hats including Breezers, Coolers, and vented-style hats

Investing in a high-quality, handcrafted hat might be the best approach when initially adding such pieces to an existing closet. Spending a little more when shopping can make the difference between a hat that deteriorates with consistent wear, and one that has longevity and greater appeal over the course of time. It is important to note that some styles may expand or swell slightly with wear, depending on the materials or fabrics used in the hat's construction. 

When consumers shop for unique and versatile hats, it might be challenging to narrow available options down to a mere choice or two. For this reason, some consumers may want to buy more basic or traditionally-detailed hats, and augment with hat jewelry to suit a wider range of occasions and wear. For those that are unfamiliar, hat jewelry includes pieces that can alter the look, color scheme, or formality of a hat to make it more cohesive with various outfits or more personalized for particular occasions. Some examples of such accent jewelry includes the vintage-inspired hat pins as well as a wide range of hatbands. When using pins to embellish a favorite hat, remember that many of these accents will leave a hole or have the potential to damage the brim or other region of the hat that they are affixed to. Furthermore, some metals could possibly stain the hat slightly around the hole where the pins are inserted. A hatband will present an option for modifying the look, without compromising or risking the condition of cherished hats. 

Shoppers should read descriptions and sizing guidelines when shopping for hats online, as some styles and brands could vary in such aspects. The widest selection might be found from internet retail sites, and prices are apt to rival- even beat- those offered by conventional shopping venues.
