As the economy continues to slump, many car dealers are allowing customers to get paid to test and drive cars for free.Â In exchange, they receive compensation, even if they decide not to buy the car.Â And, unlike â€śget paid to driveâ€ť programs, you donâ€™t need to drive around with unattractive advertisements.Â Can it get any better than this?Â If you agree, look to the steps below to learn how to get started.
Step 1: Check out Centsible.net.Â This site has a section dedicated to current offers where you can get paid to test and drive cars for free.Â Within the section, there are direct links to these offers, making your research even easier.
Step 2: Visit your local car dealer.Â They will let you know if they have any current offerings where you can get paid to test and drive cars for free.Â If they do, you will need to sign up for your test certificate, which you must present the day youâ€™re scheduled to drive.
Step 3: Look at your mail.Â Junk mail and Pennysavers often contain a hub of test drive offers.Â So always thumb through your junk mail before sending it to the trash can.
Step 4: Research auto forums.Â Forums tend to be the first place dealers go when they want to advertise a new â€śget paid to driveâ€ť offer.Â They may also show them on their respective website, so it doesnâ€™t hurt to check there as well.
Tip: You never need to pay a dime when testing cars.Â So, if an opportunity requires money upfront, look for something else as itâ€™s probably a scam.
