Well, if you don't ask

Posted by Rosie

..... you don't get.

Simon and I went to collect the last of the gite windows and it's new doors today. We had just paid when Simon looked down and saw that there was a promotion on for all exterior products. He remembered that the salesman had said that he would honour any such offers that came up between our ordering and collecting the windows. "I'll ask" said Simon. He asked. The salesgirl made a quick phone call to her manager and hey presto, they knocked 200€ off the price. Result.

Earlier we had bought a mattress and when the price came up at the till, eagled-eyed Simon noticed it was 30€ more than the marked price. He scooted off to check and found out that the price was now the higher one but as the mattress was marked at the lower price we could have it for that amount. "In that case," I said, "We'll have two!!"

  1. Well done you!

    It's nice to hear of someone getting a bargain and as they say up north "there's nowt like cheek".

    Always ask is my motto... and like you said...... if you don't ask you don't get!
