How to pay less for anything


If you’re like me, you probably have a thing or two that you secretly love that’s also a bit of an impulse buy. Maybe it’s fancy shoes, or a new cell phone case, or even something as basic as peanut butter. Regardless, I’m betting that if you’re anything like me and the average American consumer (or even just a typical human being), then your favorite things cost more than they should. And I’m sure that if those items were less expensive, we’d buy more of them! Well, there’s good news: You can get exactly what you want without paying extra for it—and here are five ways to do just that!

Know your prices

Knowing the price of an item is essential for making a decision about whether or not to buy it. If you don’t know how much something costs, how can you make an informed decision on whether or not it’s worth your money?

Knowing the price of an item also allows you to compare prices between different stores and websites. This can be especially useful when buying electronics and other high ticket items because there are often big differences between retailers and even websites (for example, Amazon vs Best Buy).

Ask for a discount

The first step to getting a discount is asking for one. This can be a bit nerve-wracking, but it’s important to know that you’re not going to offend anyone by asking them for a discount. Everyone wants their hard work and time valued, so if someone has gone out of their way to help you find something they do not need or want any more of, they are likely happy when someone takes advantage of that situation by purchasing the product at a lower price than usual.

Don’t be afraid! You might think that your request will make people angry because they’ve been working so hard already; however, most people are happy when others take notice of their efforts (and maybe even compliment them). It’s also important not just ask about discounts but also negotiate for one if needed–don’t just settle on whatever price has been set up initially!

Use price comparison sites

The best way to save money is to shop around. By using price comparison sites, you can find the lowest prices on almost everything. These sites allow you to search for coupons and promotions as well, so that you can get even better deals on your purchases.

If there’s a product or service you want but don’t want to pay full price for it, use a price comparison site like [this one](

Look for promotions and coupons

When it comes to saving money, coupons and promotions are your best friends.

Coupons are valuable because they allow you to get a discount on something that would otherwise be more expensive. For example, if you’re planning on going out to eat at a restaurant that has great reviews but isn’t in your budget, look for coupons online or in the newspaper before making reservations so that you can get some extra money off of your bill at checkout time!

Group discounts are another way to save money when buying things online or in stores (like Groupon). These types of group deals usually involve getting multiple items for less than what they would cost individually–which means more bang for your buck!

Buy in bulk if it’s cheaper than buying less

If you are buying something that is cheaper to buy in bulk, then buy it in bulk. This could mean buying more than one item at a time or just buying the biggest size available. For example:

If you’re thinking about buying some new clothes and find out that they are cheaper if they’re bought as part of a pack of three rather than individually, go ahead and get all three! If there’s no limit on how much food you can get at once from the grocery store (such as when shopping with a large group), then get yourself an extra bag or two of whatever items look good on sale today!

Buy used or refurbished products if available.

Buying used or refurbished products is a great way to save money. The key is finding the right product, so let’s take a look at how to do that:

  • Make sure you can return it if something goes wrong. Look for a warranty that lasts at least as long as you need it and covers all parts of the product (even though many companies will try to make their warranties less comprehensive than they could be). If there are no guarantees from the seller, consider buying from somewhere else instead.
  • Check out reviews before making your purchase–you’ll want at least three stars out of five for each review site so you know other people have been satisfied with their purchases before committing yourself! Be sure not just read what others say about what was included but also check out some photos too; sometimes something looks good but once assembled isn’t quite as attractive anymore!

It’s possible to pay less for anything by being smart about it.

  • Know your prices. If you know what something should cost, then it’s easier to say no when someone offers a higher price. You can find out the going rate by checking online and in stores, or by asking friends who have bought the same thing recently.
  • Ask for a discount–and mean it! Sometimes simply asking “Is there any way I could get this cheaper?” will work wonders–and even if they say no, at least you gave them some business and helped them out in other ways (like referring friends), which might make up for whatever they would’ve saved on discounting their product/service anyway!
  • Use price comparison sites like Google Shopping or Amazon’s Price Check app so that before purchasing something from any store or website; first check whether another place has better prices on similar products/services with free shipping included (or even better: buy directly from eBay sellers). You may find yourself saving hundreds each year just by doing this simple step alone!


So, you have a few great tips on how to pay less for anything. Now, it’s time to put them into action!
