Terrific!!!! ;D ;D ;D Just saved £70 on a laptop plus got a printer thrown in after following Martin's excellent advice on haggling in store. Dixons price matched a laptop I found cheaper on the net and as I'd seen someone offering a free printer with this particular model I go that too. At this point I was then subjected to a barage of sales patter about buying extra warrenty (which was half the price again at £299!!!!). I refused, then coyly asked for discount, then refused again when they offered £50 off, let them just about finish processing my order then waded in with ''if you give me £70 of I'll take it'' and lo and behold if we didn't shake on it!!!! Needless to say I will be cancelling my warrenty Direct Debit in a couple of days as I have every right to do (the first payment doesn't come out for a couple of weeks) so all in all a job well done. £580 for laptop and printer and I'm well chuffed. So take his advice - shop around and haggle like crazy!!! Cheers Martin you're a star. I've bought your book for me, my mate and my dad (naturally in the 3 for 2 sale at bol.com....) Big kissesXXX
