Sins of a bargain hunter

Sins of a bargain hunter

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - If you love a good bargain and hate paying full price, there are a few things you should avoid at all costs.

Kyle James with the website ratherbeshopping.com put a great list together of the 9 deadly sins every bargain hunter should avoid. We’re going to go over a few of them!

Number 1: Never assume the price is non-negotiable. Especially at those larger retailers like home depot, Lowes, Best Buy. If the item has a cosmetic problem, hit the associate up for a 15% or 20% discount. It’s ok to ask.

Number 2: Never get up easily when looking for a coupon code to wrap up your online shopping. They are out there!

Number 3: don’t ignore a store’s social media accounts. the majority of retailers are posting deals and exclusive coupons on their Facebook pages.

Another big tip is to always be chatty in the stores if you are making a big purchase. Get to know the employees. Be friendly and they may tell you when a product is going on sale or when a rebate will be offered or some upcoming promotion.
