How to Haggle With a Salesperson

Reader Tips: GirlOverboard Shares Haggling Secrets

I shared some tips yesterday on how I bought a $1099 couch for $250, and reader left an extremely helpful comment on haggling etiquette. She's speaking from experience, having been on the sales end. Read what she had to say:

Haggling can be great, but trying to haggle with a cashier at your local department store or being rude about it will just make things frustrating. The last thing you want to do is come off rude or make the associates not look forward to having you in their store again. Ask what the associate can do for you and if it's not what you want, ASK politely (don't demand) if you can see their manager and thank the associate for their time. Having been the associate, I can say that nothing will burn somebody out faster than being made to feel like they're the bad guy because large price deductions are out of their control.
