Snowathlete - hold out your hand! ????
I pretty much 'bargain' for a living, although in my profession we call it negotiating. I have no issue at all in asking, and being asked for a discount.
Good on you Verdun. If you don't ask, you don't get. Also, it often makes you want to return to someone who gives you a bargain. Makes good business sense to entertain offers. Businesses with brains account for it anyway by adding a bit on in the first place.
If I was rolling in it, I'd still hunt out a bargain!
