The following are some tips for haggling and negotiating a better price:
Ask about floor models
A lot of national retail chains (well-known department and clothing stores, for example) have fixed prices on most of their merchandise, but you may have some wiggle room when it comes to floor models.
Talk with a manager if all else fails
Begin by speaking with a salesperson. If he or she doesn’t have the authority to lower the price on a product, then ask if there is a manager available. Odds are, if there is a lower price available, the manager will be able to offer it on the spot.
Don’t be afraid to walk away
If you are unhappy with the final price and think you could get a better deal somewhere else, don’t be afraid to walk away. If the seller sees they’re about to lose a customer, they might stop you as you’re on your way out the door. Otherwise, you’ll want to leave your contact information behind, in case the seller changes his or her mind and is willing to offer you the price you wanted.
Do you need extra cash to make a large purchase? If you’re receiving periodic payments from an annuity or structured settlement, why not turn those future payments into one lump sum of cash? By receiving more of your money upfront, you may be able to buy your first home, a new car, pay off debt, or catch up on bills. Peachtree Financial Solutions can help you reach your goals much sooner by purchasing some or all of your future payments and offering you a lump sum cash payment.
