Retail Prices Dead

I never thought I would see the day when the major retailers would tell their salespeople they can allow customers to haggle over prices but that day has finally arrived. Now more than ever, when you are shopping you need to be as informed as possible.

Remember that if you go into a store and are looking to buy something and you decide to look up the price on the store’s free WiFi, you may actually be redirected to a different site than you intended.

So be sure to have a wireless card that connects to Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc with you or head to Starbucks before you sign on the dotted line.

Which retailers have found this newfound haggling religion? Best Buy, Circuit City and home Depot are just a few.

The sad part about all this is that many say the birthplace of haggling is actually the middle east… This is quite ironic as you can’t negotiate that $100 barrel of oil down one cent.
