Can you always get discounts in electrical stores?

I brought my mum a laptop the other day and felt really cheeky asking for a discount, the sales assisant said he couldnt do anything but I kept pushing and got some free software and a bag.

    Of course they can, electrical items that high street retailers sell usually have between 20-50% mark-up over the trade prices.

    When i bought my last laptop it was badged at £1200, i got the memory upgraded to 2Gb and walked out of there after paying £1050. Just keep chipping away and if they dont bite just start to walk out saying you’ll buy elsewhere – never fails, salesmen get paid a crap wage that they make up with commision, they wont let a sale walk out the door if they can help it.

    They know that if you are looking for discount then you are likely to buy, and it is likely that if they don’t get you something you will take your cash somewhere else.

    Well done. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
