If you really want to impress someone with a gift this holiday season, or if you just need a great car at an are-you f*@#ing-serious? price, get over to Gilt.com, register as a member, and get in on this members-only deal:
Beginning Wednesday, Dec 15, Gilt Groupe is partnering with Volkswagen of America, and will sell three all-new 2011 Jettas to its members. Each day beginning at noon ET, one car will be sold at the inconceivable price of $5,995. Volkswagen dropped the “1” from the already low starting price of $15,995, to further prove it is serious about its “Great for the Price of Good” message.
The flash sale will last three consecutive days. On the first day, December 15th, the sale will only be accessible through Gilt mobile applications on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Android devices. Then, on December 16th and 17th, the sale will take place on Gilt.com as well as through the mobile applications. And in keeping in the holiday spirit, VW will donate the proceeds to Dress for Success.
Each Jetta will be presented in a one of a kind “Gilt Gold” wrap. And if you didn’t grab one of the three available, Volkswagen will offer Gilt members who add the Jetta to their “Wait List” a special incentive that can be redeemed at participating Volkswagen dealerships nationwide.
