June’s Money Challenge: Haggle Everything

June’s Money Challenge: Haggle Everything

So far this year, we’ve challenged you to cut your bills, curb impulsive spending and even save for retirement. This month, it’s time to hone your haggling skills.

Haggling is difficult for a lot of us, but it’s a skill that pays off immensely over time. You can save on furniture, appliances, vehicles, even your monthly rent. Throughout the month of June, we challenge you to ask for a better price when it’s worth it.

Here are a few posts to help you get started:

One of my favourite simple haggling tips: don’t make it easy to say “no”. In other words, don’t ask questions like, “are you sure?” or “can you offer a better price?” because those questions make it really easy for the other person to shut down the conversation with a resounding “NOPE”. Instead, ask questions like, “what can you offer?” It’s a simple tip, but simple tips can be really effective for novice hagglers.

So let’s hear it: who’s in this month? If you’re up for the challenge, let us know below and tell us what you plan to haggle.
