The simple ways to save on white goods and cut your phone bill

From energy bills to items purchased at a department store, there’s no reason why you should be paying full price for anything!

The secret is all in the negotiating.

After all, if you don’t ask, you won’t receive.

Don’t pay recommended retail price

How often do you walk into a department store and accept the ticketed price without asking for a discount, if it isn’t on sale? Mistake number one.

First of all, don’t assume you are getting the best price. Would you do this if you were purchasing a car? Probably not! To get the best price on big-ticket items like vehicles and white goods, you’d haggle like your life depends on it.

So there’s no reason why you can’t apply this same approach to smaller purchases. If you know what you’re looking for beforehand, do a little research online.

If you find it cheaper online, take a screenshot. When you go to purchase the item at the store, show the salesperson the screenshot and ask if they will price match or do better. If not, walk away and try somewhere else.
