Do you love a bargain, but feel anxious when it comes to haggling over the price? If you’re not a natural born haggler, don’t worry! This infographic has some insider tips and tricks that you can use to drive down prices and save yourself some money.
If you’re keen to learn to haggle like a pro, confidence is key. Did you know that 68% of Brits aged between 18 and 34 don’t even bother to try and haggle on the price of a new car? There are savings to be made, and if you go into a negotiation with confidence, you’re likely to achieve a positive outcome. Do some research before you pitch a price, lean in, and make eye contact. Away from the forecourt, you can save yourself money by asking for a better price on items available in stores and market stalls. It’s not impossible to haggle at a high street store, but you’re more likely to charm the owner of an independent shop. If you pay by cash, you stand an even better chance of making savings.
If you’ve got insurance policies or broadband or TV contracts up for renewal, don’t take the easy way out. Make a couple of calls and compare prices online to see if you could save by switching provider. Competition is fierce, and many businesses will offer you an incentive to stay with them. A survey conducted by Which? found that over 80% of customers saved money on their phone contract by haggling.
