How to Haggle Like an Expert

You wouldn't buy a new house or a new car without haggling over the price so why would you buy other things without haggling?  If the thought of haggling makes you squirm, think of it as negotiating a better price or deal. Does that sound more appealing?

When you haggle you are negotiating, asking a simple question. That's it, plain and simple. Here are some simple tips to help you haggle as though you've been doing it for years.

1. Do your research and know what you want.
2. Ask the question "Is this your best price?"
3. Be prepared to haggle, keep asking questions i.e. "How much for cash?"
4. Value add, bundle items and ask for a better price, free delivery etc
5. As you shop around always get the price written on the back of a business card as it helps if you can pull out a written price when you are haggling in another store and it helps with price matching too.
You owe it to yourself and your family to be a savvy shopper, after all you work hard for your money and you need to get the best possible value for every dollar you spend.
