How to Negotiate For More Vacation Days

Reader Asks: Has Anyone Ever Negotiated For More PTO?


This question comes from Savvy Confessions, a community group which features anonymous postings of career and money secrets. Weigh in with your suggestions below!

I've been thinking about asking my boss for more PTO days instead of or as part of my next raise.  I'm wondering if anyone has done this before?  Did it work out?  For me, I really want to travel a lot.  Since my family lives overseas,  I usually only get to see them once a year, and I want to change that this year.  I want to see them more, but flying from the US for just a week is feel like it's not enough. Wondering if anyone's had experience with this? Advice?
