Now here’s a bit of information that I should take to heart. It’s about asking for a better price. I’m a very quiet person, but I think I should come out of my shell a little bit to get some better deals!
Kimberly at Alpha Consumer recently wrote a piece on how she saved over $140 on a hotel room. How? She asked…simple as that.
To test my theory, I did a little experiment. For a minivacation, I wanted to go away for the weekend with my husband to a hotel near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Hotels there can go for $300 a night or even more, but I wanted to spend around half that amount.
Kimberly was able to get a room for $160 just by asking.
I think the next time we travel to visit relatives I’m going to try asking for a better rate at the motel. The worst they could say is “No.”
