“ALWAYS ask for discounts,” says reader Mitch Goldberg. “You would be surprised at the number of businesses and attractions that give substantial discounts to veterans, AAA members, teachers, students, etc. I have saved thousands when traveling by simply asking.”
Mitch is right! I realize not everyone is comfortable doing this, but politely asking “Is that your best price?” or “Is there a way to save more on this?” usually gets the job done. It truly works, but you won’t save a dime if you don’t ask.
