MB Financing

Does anyone know of an MF Financial incentive to dealers that get customers to financing thru MB Financial...I heard that they give a payback of $2,000 back to the dealership...I am considering a CPO perchase and would pay cash, but am considering the 2.9% and use the $2,000 as a bargaining tool to get them to lower the price some more...TIA for your comments

i think if you get a loan and pay it off quickly - your credit score will get a boost.

On other hand - get loan at 2.9% and put your cash in some mutual funds - you should be able to make 8-12% at low risk.

Actually, if you pay it off too quickly, your credit score will take a small hit.

I believe GS is correct, but Krill has a good idea about a lower rate loan and putting the difference into quality mutual funds or ETFs.

Don't believe everything you think
