Not only is graduation an enthralling day for the graduates; it’s also a lifetime highlight for family members. A graduation gift is a cultural norm, but graduates most likely won’t be coveting a gift that is typical. Entertainment systems, airline tickets, new phones – all great gift ideas, but not necessarily what your grad actually needs. Instead, your grad will be coveting something that can calm their anxiety regarding the unemployment rate among college graduates, which analysts say won’t be much lower from last year’s 50%.
US News surveyed 178 universities and found that nearly 48% of college students don’t have a vehicle on campus. Thus, when May approaches, a massive crop of graduates don’t have an easy way to commute to job interviews. But a lease from Swapalease.com is a gift that not only is creative; it’s also useful and needed.
Five current deals that parents and other friends and family can take advantage of for their college grad include:
• 2013 Smart Fortwo $87/month for 16 months
• 2012 VW Golf $171/month for 19 Months
• 2014 Ford Focus $139/month 24
• 2012 Jeep Patriot $187/month for 12
• 2014 Hyundai Elantra $179/month for 36 months
Since the supply of Swapalease.com’s marketplace is produced by consumers, there are more endless options for car models, prices, and locations. And not only is the supply vast; the prices are much cheaper than many leases on the car lot. Since you can take over someone’s lease, this often results in only paying the monthly payment, not the down payment or other fees. The lease is also a short-term commitment, which opens up graduates to explore new vehicles with up to date technology and safety upgrades after the lease term is up.
These cheap lease deals are an investment into your graduate’s future, because it puts wheels underneath their aspirations. What could be a better gift than that?
