Before you try to negotiate
There are no hard and fast rules about when you can or can't negotiate a price. You can ask, but it's up to the retailer or service provider to decide if they will consider a lower price.
Do your research before trying to negotiate. Make sure you know:
- what you want to buy
- how much other retailers sell it for
- how much you are willing to pay.
If you negotiate a lower price, check this won't have any impact on the goods or services you are receiving, or any contracts or warranties.
