The power to bargain

Most of the time people think the only time they can bargain is when they are at a garage sale or car dealerships.  For me that could not be anymore false.  When I am going to buy some more expensive ticket items not only do I research for the best price, but I try even harder for a better deal directly with the seller.

I really do not want to waste my time with someone who can’t give discounts.  I want to talk directly with the decision makers at stores.   Most of the time it is the manager and the commissioned sales people who can authorize those discounts.  If you are dealing with someone who can’t do it ask to speak to a manager.   It never hurts to ask if they can mark it down for a better price.
