Things You May Not Know About Smart Bargain Shopping

You Don't Want the Freebie? Give it Back for Cash.


Say you are buying a new refrigerator and the store advertises free delivery on all refrigerators but you have a truck and do not want to wait for a delivery. Ask the salesperson what they usually charge for delivery and request that they knock the amount off your bill since you will be taking care of the hauling and delivery yourself.

Other areas that you may save on by turning back the freebie for cash, is with "free" software that comes with your new computer or free pillows that come with your new mattress. The trick is to decide if the freebie is something that you want. If it is, then you will do okay. If it is not, then at least try to sell it back to them at "their" cost.
