Build-A-Story: Do you haggle?
Let's-strike-a-deal moments have always been popular at car dealerships, mattress stores and open houses, but recent data shows that deal making has spread to some unlikely places. BIGresearch asked more than 4,000 people where they haggle for a better price and found that:
* 26 percent do it for better clothes prices
* 25 percent for appliances
* 33 percent for electronics
* 29 percent for groceries (groceries!)
* 30 percent for tires
* 20 percent for shoes
* 9 percent for sporting goods
So: Do you haggle? For what? Did the economy make you do it? How does it make you feel? What was the store's reaction? How much money did you save?
