Stores That Are Willing To Haggle
Pay no attention to the price tag.
More stores are giving their managers wiggle room for customers to haggle with them on price.
Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowe’s and others will let managers not only match competitor prices…but beat them by 10%. See where else bargaining is becoming more common here.
After reading the article in the above link, I promised myself that the next time I saw an opportunity to haggle, I was going to take it. No matter how much I wanted to chicken out… So, fast forward a few days later — I’m at Target buying a board game. I can’t even remember which one now, but it doesn’t matter… it wasn’t that much fun. So, don’t buy it. The point its there was only 1 of them left and the box was damaged just a bit… so, I took it to the customer service desk and politely explained that it was the last one on the shelf and asked if I could have a discount because the box was damaged. The lady said no problem… and took 10% off.
My philosophy moving forward — ask for the discount. All they can do is say no.
