Shoppers Could ‘Save Hundreds Of Pounds’ By Haggling At Retailers Like Tesco And B&q

B&Q and Tesco have been revealed as the top high street shops for haggling.

But shoppers are finding it harder to barter a bargain on the high street, according to consumer website MoneySavingExpert.com.

MoneySavingExpert reveals the top high street shops for hagglingThe average overall success rate for bartering consumers has dropped from 55 per cent to 42 per cent in the past two years.

The website, which was founded by Martin Lewis, warned that while it may now be harder for shoppers to nab a deal they shouldn’t let it put them off.

Steve Nowottny, news and features editor at MoneySavingExpert.com said: “Sadly it seems to be getting harder to haggle on the high street, with success rates down across the board since we last ran this poll in 2016.

“Yet don’t let that put you off trying – our poll also shows that at some stores as many as half of those who’ve tried end up walking out of the shop with a better deal.

“If you don’t ask, you don’t get – the worst the shop assistant can say is ‘no’.”

Shoppers also had better success with haggling in independent and charity shops.

In the past, bargain hunters who use haggling tips have save £427 a year on average.

MSE asked more than 1,500 shoppers which high street shops they’ve haggled with and whether they received a discount.

This year a number of new shops entered the hit list for bargain hunters including Asda, Primark and Waitrose.

In the past, shops such as Debenhams, M&S and TK Maxx have featured in the top 10.

We tried out haggling on the high street last year with success in shops like John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse and TK Maxx.
