Successful price negotiating

When you're looking to negotiate a bargain basement price for that item you want, there are some simple things you can do to for a successful outcome:

  • Be friendly, not aggressive or grumpy
  • Get the salesperson on side (tell a chatty story for instance)
  • Tell them your budget range
  • Ask if they guarantee their prices
  • Mention that you are a loyal customer (I always tell them I must own the company with the amount of shopping done at their store)
  • Offer to pay cash
  • Be prepared to buy when your deal goes through
  • Be discreet!
