You’ve seen them on TV and heard them on the radio for years, but who the heck are the Sisters of Savings? Aside from growing up in a family dedicated to the car business, Lindsay & Jaymie McGrath are pretty much like any other sisters. When they’re not hustlin’ at the dealership, they’re busy moms and wives tackling Eastern Iowa life and having as much fun as possible, just like the rest of us!
We managed to wrangle Jaymie and Lindsay for a few minutes to ask some questions about each other, the auto business, and life in general. Their answers are pretty great!

Round #1 of Sisters of Savings Q&A
The first video from the Sisters of Savings series, asks questions related to the car industry and working at McGrath. Have you ever seen one or even both of the sisters out and about in Cedar Rapids? If you have, make sure you say hi! In the first video, Lindsay recalls a time she was recognized from one of her commercials, at HyVee none-the-less during a medical emergency.
Have you ever been recognized from a commercial?
Lindsay: “I remember my 18-month-old was having an allergic reaction to eggs at home. We called the nurse, the nurse said, ‘if he’s ok and breathing just go ahead and go to HyVee and get (this) medication and give it to him’. So, I went into HyVee in a panic, rushing around, trying to find this medication because my son was in the car with my husband, potentially having an allergic reaction. This lady stopped me and went ‘shhhhh it’s a silent sale’ and wanted to talk about the sale as I’m in the aisle trying to buy Benadryl. I had to chat for a few minutes saying, ‘yup it’s a silent sale, I got to go. My son may not be breathing’.”
Round #2 of Sisters of Savings Q&A
Lindsay and Jaymie tackle a rapid-fire style of questions in this second video. I have to admit, these questions are quite interesting… or should I say entertaining. They cover relationship gift advice, gossip on which sister is funnier, and horse-sized duck? Hm, interesting… find out what Lindsay and Jaymie answered in this video here.
Round #3 of Sisters of Savings Q&A
Have questions about buying cars or general car questions? Lindsay and Jaymie tackle all your car questions backed by years of knowledge from growing up in the car industry.
Any Advice for a first-time car buyer?
Jaymie: “Set a budget that you know makes sense and stick to it.”
Lindsay : “Have an idea of a couple key things that are very important to you in the vehicle. Trust in the sales consultant that works with you, to also help guide you to a vehicle that you may not have considered before based on what you’re looking for and the budget you have spelled out.”
