In the market for a new car? You should’ve checked out Gilt today at noon. The private sale company sold a special Volkswagen Jetta (completely new!) for the slightly insane price of $5,995. Normally, these cars retail for $15,995. Missed it? Don’t feel too bad. You’ll get a chance tomorrow and Friday at noon, for two more of the limited-edition cars. Sure, your chances of getting one are kinda slim, but still. Oh, and you can only access the sale through mobile devices like the iPhone app, iPad, etc.
Amazing price, but kind of weird to think about buying your car from the same people who stock the shoes in your closet. As online private sale companies diversify, we wonder what we will be seeing next? Health insurance? Houses? [Advertiser Talk]
