As UK sees VAT rise on the horizon, leading consumer site
partners with Pareto to help shoppers bargain
27 August 2010 – Money-saving codes and vouchers website DiscountVouchers.co.uk has
announced the launch of a new guide offering tips and hints on negotiating the best
value deals when shopping in partnership with Pareto, one of the best-known training
companies in the UK.
The guide is called 'Top 10 Tips Ė How to Bag a Bargain' and can be downloaded for free from the
DiscountVouchers.co.uk website. The guide is designed to specifically to teach
shoppers how to bargain for the best retail deals by haggling on things from cars to
holidays to clothing.
Simon Terry, managing director of DiscountVouchers.co.uk, comments: “Prices continue
to rise and budgets remain tight, and with the UK set to see a VAT rise it’s a great
time to learn new negotiating skills to help save when shopping”.
“People in Britain aren’t so used to bartering and bargaining, but they’re getting
more into the habit. They can though stretch their budgets further by using these
skills and hints to get great bargains. Our guide in partnership with Pareto is
there to help people learn to negotiate more value deals.”
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.
