Sears Black Friday

Sears has published their Black Friday deals. Like other brick and mortar stores they offer free in store pickup. They're also offering free shipping for orders over $49.

Sears, being a large department store that's been around forever and it feels a lot like the old brick and mortar stores. So generally these sales are what many believe to be the best way to be frugal at Sears.

But there's an even better way. Want to know how?

Unbeknownst to many, you can haggle prices at Sears. What?!? That's right. You can haggle at a department store.

We've successfully haggled savings off of a refrigerator that was already marked down for a Memorial Day sale. And a different time we haggled on a 3D Samsung TV. Besides great price savings they threw in a couple pairs of extra 3D glasses for free -- this was back when 3D glasses cost around $50/pair.

And what did we have to do to get these kinds of deals? Just ask and chat with them about what they could do to earn our business that day. A bit like shopping for a car.

As they say, it never hurts to ask.
