1 “Would you throw in the ……. for free?”. Especially for electrical products, ask for the batteries, cables etc to be added in without paying the extra.
2 Look for flaws, scratches or dents on electrical appliances or marks on clothing. Say “you’re unlikely to sell the item with that dent/flaw/scratch/mark at the full price”.
3 Use internet prices to negotiate. Take in a print out. Ask them to the match price. Cut out/fold over mentions of delivery charges….
4 Cash Price. If the store is offering 0% interest deals, ask for the cash price: usually it’s 5% cheaper
5 Buy out of season. Winter clothing in summer, summer clothing in winter
6 Don’t be afraid to walk away. If they want the sale they’ll negotiate
7 Pausing helps. Gives the salesperson time to consider & offer you a better deal.
Finally The worst thing that will happen is that they say no!
