Today I have an amazing guest joining me. We are going to talk about buying new cars. But we are not talking about heading right to your local car dealership and doing that song and dance. Katie and I are talking about buying a new car through Costco. One of the benefits of being a Costco member, is their car buying program. Katie used the program to buy her first car. So we will be getting an awesome prospective from a first time new car buyer!

Rain Eater wiper blades. Wipers are one of the most important safety items on our cars. Think not, you must have never driven in bad weather. When you are ready to replace your wiper blades, a very easy DIY, check out RainEater wipers at RainEater.com. Plus I LOVE that their CEO is the one monitoring social media.

Join Katie and I as we chat:

  • What car Katie bought
  • The amount of research done when buying a new car
  • Resources Katie uses to aid her decision
  • How the Costco program works
  • How did that compare to the just walking in the dealer?
  • Pros of the Costco program
  • Cons of the Costco program
  • Would Katie recommend buying a car this way?
  • What surprises came up
  • The role crowd sourcing played
  • Follow Katie on Twitter @NoYinKatie
  • Our beer of the day
  • and more

Hey everyone! We are back in action on the blog. I was fighting some issues with HostGator and some malware. Don’t worry, everything is fine, and no need to worry about getting a virus from the blog. The only think it really meant is no blog posts last week. All of the videos were still posted to YouTube. All the more reason to be sure you subscribe on the blog AND on sites like Facebook and YouTube. 😉
