As part of my job, I do a lot of negotiating - our vendors have been known to quake in their boots.
So, how come when it comes to negotiating the purchase or lease of a new car I just suck?
In order to offset the fact that I have done a bad job with the important part of the negotiations, (ie the price) I do make one demand. I demand that the dealership GIVE me something.
What do I demand they give me?
Mugs. Yes, the things out of which you drink coffee and/or tea.
I have two Toyota mugs, two Nissan mugs and two Mazda mugs.
