How to Get a Good Deal on Services

Reevaluate and Review Contracts Carefully

QUICK TIP

Try haggling. Especially with services, the price isn't always the price. Sometimes, you can get a better price just by asking for a "best and final" quote. With products, ask for a better deal if you're buying multiple expensive items at the same time, such as a refrigerator and dishwasher or a whole room full of furniture. The more knowledgeable, firm, and aggressive you are, the more likely you will succeed.

As with products, you want to avoid impulse buys you later regret. So, unless it's an emergency, like a broken pipe flooding your house, take your time.

Make the effort to read through contracts for bigger jobs. If it's an especially large project, like a major home renovation, you might want to have an attorney review the contract.
