10 Things You Never Knew Are Negotiable
Haggling over prices is a time-honored tradition in many countries, but American consumers aren’t particularly keen on negotiating. According to a 2013 survey by Consumer Reports, only 48 percent of buyers bargained on goods and services over the previous three years—although the same report found that 89 percent of the hagglers had at least one success. Indeed, consumers who challenged furniture and health care charges saved an average of $300, those who haggled over appliances or personal electronics saved an average of $200, and people who negotiated on jewelry prices saved an average of $150. Are you inspired to test your haggling skills? Here are 10 items you never knew were negotiable.
