I seldom buy anything that I won't ask if the retailer gives discounts; even restaurants often allow 'senior' portions...cheaper. I learned this from my husband years ago. I was ready to pay full price for a suit at a large men's store, when my husband asked for any discount; he saved us $30.00! I've gotten discounts from K-Mart, Target, Wal-Mart, HomeDepot, a woman's dress shop, etc! If you don't ask, you'll not receive...that's my motto! So don't be bashful, ASK!
