Shopping around with multiple lenders is truly the key to getting the best rate for your loan. Each lender will offer different incentives, perks and rates. When I was applying for a loan to get a car, I checked with a minimum of three lenders — including a credit union — to ensure I was getting the best rate for the long term.
