We all like to save money, but what if I told you there are several items we regularly pay full price for that we shouldn't. Here are some bargain busters that don't require any clipping.
* Home Improvements
Home improvement stores often price match, but a rarely talked about saving secret could shave hundreds off our next remodel or landscaping project. Home Depot employees and managers are allowed to take between $50 and $1000 off our tab, depending on what we're purchasing.
We may just have to ask for it and it's almost like a negotiation.
* Doctor's Visits
The cost of doctor and dentist visits can be enough to make us sick. If we're willing to pay out of pocket instead of filing a claim, some offices may take 10-50% off the bill.
Shopping for glasses just got easier and cheaper. Websites like eyebuydirect.com offer eye popping discounts on specks. We'll also find deals on contact lenses from1.800 .contacts.
Forget hitting every store in town to find the best deals on a 12 pack. Saveonbrew.com has done the legwork for us. Just put in an address and the site will show the beer bargains in our neighborhoods.
More Things To Never Pay Full Price:
* Health& Beauty Products - Between coupons printed from the register at drugstores and online and ad coupons, we can save on all our personal care items.
* Groceries - Store specials,rebates and coupons make it easy to slash our grocery bills.
* Restaurants - There are so many websites out there offering deals like $25 in food for $10, there's no reason to pay full price at a restaurant again
* Clothes & Shoes - Online deals and discounts are everywhere so take advantage.
* Books & Music - Shop used at amazon.com or half.com. Even better, borrow from the library for free!
* Cell Phones - Before getting inline for the next new phone, check with your provider to see when you're eligible for an upgrade that's typically not full price.
* Insurance - Bundle car and home policies for a discount and don't be afraid to haggle a cheaper price on those premiums.
* Vacations - Websites like cheapflights.com and Priceline allow us to search for bargain basement getaways.
