Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Have had a full plate.
Todays entry is about Deliberate Spending.
I have been needing a new set of tires for my car for a while now, but haven’t been able to afford the tires of choice; namely Falken Ziex. The retail installed price was $367 with tax and installation.
So today I went to a tire store and told them I would like a discounted price on the tires alone, and that i would take them elsewhere to be installed. I said that I knew that I could accomplish my budget of $300 total if I did it separately.
The young man asked me if I would like them to do everything for the same $300 price,,.,tax and installation included. Of course I said yes….and it was done.
I SAVED $67 JUST BY ASKING NICELY FOR A DISCOUNT!
This weekend, I got a similar Huge Discount from a mechanic shop on some service work done on my other vehicle. Saved $60 just on one certain part. Plus huge discount on their labor rate as well. All because I asked nicely.
So, my message today is ASK! Don’t be afraid to ask for a discount. Take the time to do some comparative research if you can…it really helps. But nevertheless, ASK FOR A DISCOUNT. Businesses know very well that competition for customers is tighter than ever, and they can’t afford to let a good customer walk away.
This week I saved several hundred $$$ on vehicle repairs, Tires, and other items…. Simply because I ASKED NICELY FOR A DISCOUNT. Go and do likewise.
$pend Deliberately and $ave Deliberately!
Below see the regular retail price of the tires purchased today for only $300 total;
