I know I do. No matter what it is I like to haggle. :D I can go to a swap meet and find something on sale for 5 bucks and still try to talk someone down just cause its fun.

Just now the mobile car washers came into my office and asked if anyone wanted their vehicles washed. They normally charge 20 bucks but I talked him down to $15 and got 5 other of my co-workers to give him business. So he is loving me right now :cool: When I go down to get my truck I should talk him down to 10 bucks for getting him so much business. :D

2 weeks ago I had to get my sister another sub woofer for her car because her stupid boyfriend blew her last one up. When I went into the stereo shop they wanted $110 for the sub I wanted and I talked them down to $80. I like haggling :)

edit:

what arguments do you like to use to get someone down in price? my use the old "well i called on the phone 3 days ago and this guy said it was this price" haha it always works.

I only wanted a lumina steering wheel. The junk yard told me that they would not sell the wheel, rather the whole column. So, i had asked if it would be possible if there were any broken columns that I could jack the wheel off of. So naturally, I found the wheel i wanted, keys in the column, took them out and broke the column tilt. I walked in, put the wheel down and he told me "we don't sell wheels separate" I told them the column was broke. He said "oh" and I went about my day.


Later I found 3'' tips in my garage never used.....these were from 3 years ago. But i needed new turn downs. I went into autozone and told them I didn't have a receipt, and they let me exchange them for the right size.

Haggling skills comes with the territory of being a good salesman. My dad and I are both salesmen, so naturally, we are both excellent hagglers...

I haggle when it's appropiate, like at swapmeets and with used items and things of that nature.

Not so much an services and such, it'll usually ends up with the person doing half-assed work.
