Shopping is something everyone has to do, even if it’s just for groceries. If you’re not much of a shopper, or perhaps even if you are, you might not be aware that there are right and wrong ways to shop. You want to get more for your money and avoid being taken for a ride, so you need to have the right skills for a successful shopping trip. Whether you’re food shopping or clothes shopping, try these.
Knowing Your Rights
What do you know about your consumer rights? There are certain rights afforded to you as a shopper, and it’s important to know what they are so that retailers can’t take advantage of you. You need to know things like how and when you can return items.
Separating a Bargain from a Sales Trick
Saving a whole lot of money on your shopping can be thrilling. But are you really making a saving? Being able to spot what’s a bargain and what just looks like one is a vital shopping skill. Some tricks to look out for include an item being priced higher for just a couple of weeks, so the retailer can say it’s discounted.
Protecting Yourself from the Hard Sell
It can be tough to defend yourself when someone is pushing a sale on you. It can help to have some tactics and some key phrases to use to get them to back off. Although, ultimately, you may just need to develop a strong backbone.
Haggling for a Good Deal
Haggling is a great way to say money and even in larger stores, you might be able to talk your way into a discount. It’s also a great way to save on services, like your phone contract.
