You got to fight..for the right..to negotiate. That’s right WOMS! Ethne and I strongly believe in the fact that the price isn’t always the price.
Remember my patio umbrella. That’s right…a simple negotiation (pointing out a flaw in the umbrella pole) and I was able to get the umbrella for $30.00 (and not the original $90.00.
Or recently…Ethne went shopping at Target—WE LOVE TARGET! And was able to talk her way down to a 10% off savings because their was a slight flaw in the sweater. Perfect for Ethne and a perfect price.
And you may have noticed in several of my wom-mom posts that I had a dining room table with a HORRIBLE top. That’s right—since day one of purchasing it…we have had trouble. The veneer has been peeling away with scratch and imperfection after imperfection. Luckily we had purchased a furniture warranty, but of course were told that the accumulative damage was not covered. And so, no new table for us!
UN-EXCEPTABLE! I made the call, I begged, I pleaded, I argued…and finally I had a manager on the phone that took my complaint seriously. Guess what—new table. No cost to us.
We did end up purchasing a piece of glass for the top. This peeling veneer will not be our problem. And I am currently negotiating with the glass delivery company for a refund (I won’t get into the details), but trust me—YOU GOT FIGHT! FOR THE RIGHT! TO NEGOTIATE!
