3.0 PRICE IS NOT THE ONLY BARGAINING TOOL; NEGOTIATING, BARGAINING AND HAGGLING
Most bargaining will involve price, but there are other ways to bargain. Get the seller to throw in an extra, for example.
When my wife bought her car, the dealer would not bargain much. However, we decided that the car was in excellent shape and a good deal. Since the dealer would not drop the price, we asked if he would put on a set of new tires at cost. This he agreed to readily. We saved $100s on the tires.
you are dealing with a big company or corporation, you might ask the store to throw in an
extra or refund a usual charge. If you bought two appliances, for example, the business
might not charge you for delivery.
When a woman buys two dresses at a "mom and pop" boutique, she might ask the store to throw in a leather belt for free.
At hotels, resorts and car rental agencies, you can ask for a free upgrade to a larger room or car.
Getting a hospital to accept monthly payments on your bill, will save you $100s or $1000s in interest. Hospitals and doctors often do not worry about the amount of interest saved. They just want a way to make sure that they will get paid.
