I’ve been doing a TON of shopping lately. I had it done in October last year due to an impending birth and loved it.

Recently, a toy I purchased on Amazon for $56 was on Zulily for $34. I got right on Amazon to ask about canceling my order. I missed the deadline but they told me to refuse the shipment.

In another case, I ordered a set of DVD’s. Three days later, I got a catalog from where I purchased them and asked for a credit. No answer yet, but it could save me $10. After all, it never hurts to ask!

Have you ever saved just by asking?

    I am a true believer in this. I have worked in customer service for half of my life. I had a recent problem with Coffemate creamer. The holiday line. The cap has a defect in it. It leaks none stop and waste the creamer. I emailed them and they have had several complaints on this same issue. They are redesigning the cape. They are sending me a refund for the product.

    When I lived in Virginia, I haggled the cost of a twin bed set down from $200 to $99 on the last day of a store sale. I was extremely happy. So, it does not hurt to ask.Sears lost my business on a stove because they refused to price match to Lowe’s. Crazy right? I just didn’t want to drive across town to Lowe’s but as it turned out,Lowe’s was the best deal in the end.
