Haggling at the dollar store  MAY 08 2009

Another one of those "you can haggle everywhere -- even at Wal-Mart and the dollar store! -- if you can work up the courage to do so" stories. These are like crack for my fraidy-cat non-negotiating ass.

According to Doble, you can haggle pretty much anywhere -- from Macy's to Kmart to your local supermarket -- but, he suggests, your best bets are hotel rooms, bulk purchases, big-ticket items, anything marked down or damaged, floor models, used items or open packages. In those situations, says Doble, "It's almost crazy not to bargain." After all, merely asking for a better price -- on, say, an appliance -- can save you hundreds of dollars.
