Getting Better Deals: Pawn Shop Haggling

Any businessman worth their suit knows that good communication skills are essential to business and success therein. You need to be able to clearly communicate what you need and be able to listen to clients and creditors to be able to make things work out. But communication also has another use in business, and that is in the realm of getting things for less.

Think about it. When you go to buy a used car, are you going to just pay the sticker price right away or are you going to try to see if they can’t give you a bit better of a deal? Of course, you are going to haggle to try to reduce the price. And this haggling can also be employed at any Ft Lauderdale pawn shop to get better deals on items therein.

So to help you out in this if you aren’t already an expert haggler, here are a few tips that you can use to try to get a better price.

First, simply ask the clerk if they can’t do any better on the price of the desired item. Only ask them that and then be quiet and let the mull it over. They may give you a better deal right there. You won’t know unless you ask.

Next, you can try getting two items for cheaper than individually. Let’s say there are both a TV and a video game system for sale. Make the clerk an offer for both (of course for a lower price than each individually). The ideal of two sales may entice the clerk to letting go of the items for less.

Try these two simple tips out the next time you are bargain hunting at your local pawn shop and see how much you can save.
