Pareto’s Top Tips feature –

*Do your research
Research the very best deals available so you know what you are doing when you haggle. Find out what price you should pay for an item and research alternative options and products. Check out different stores and suppliers too, so that when you bargain, the supplier knows that you know your stuff.

*Negotiation isnít just about price
There is more to getting a good value deal than just getting some money off a product. When haggling with a shop assistant you should ask for extra items or additional accessories rather than some money off if they’re not permitted to give you a cash discount. You might end up with something for nothing which makes a nice gift for someone.

*Don’t be pressured into accepting the deal
Be aware that there is always pressure put on people to make a fast buy, which can result in a deal which isn’t great value. Be on the lookout for pressuring tactics and don’t allow yourself to be forced into paying a price you’re not happy with. Always bear in mind that it’s your money. features money saving offers from both major high street brands and specialist retailers, including stores such as Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Travelodge, First Choice, and Boden.
