Do you pay the first price offered you for items you're interested in purchasing? In many foreign countries you can discuss the displayed or "given" price for your desired purchase and get a much lower price than the one originally offered you - it's called haggling. Well, there's a way to accomplish the very same thing in the good ole U.S. of A. It's called online comparison shopping. There is rarely an item these days that is available in the stores that you can not find online - and usually cheaper than the price being offered at your favorite retail store. So, when your local store is asking what seems like a very high price for an item that you are interested in - ask them if they match other retailers prices. If they do - let them know what the best price you can find online is and see if they will match it. If not - consider doing your shopping online instead.
