How do you respond to "System won't allow any more discounts"?

November 24, 2018 / 87 / Category : Dubai

One line I hear being used a lot these days when shopping at smaller mid sized shops is, "The system/computer doesn't let me apply any futher discounts". How often is this actually the case and how often is it just a trick used to get you to accept their price?

Any bargaining experts/people with experience on the opposite end of the deal?

    If they're any kind of employee they probably do have some restriction on what they can discount. Also, hagglers are the worst. Buy it or don't. Don't waste everyone's life with your whiny arguing for half an hour about how you don't like the price.

    He is not asking about "willing to pay". Of course you would buy it cheaper if you can. It's about are they tricking you.

    "to get you to accept their price" If you are willing to pay that price, then what is the problem? If it is too high, then walk away.
