A short article in the November, 2009 issue of the AARP Bulletin recommends that you do what most people don’t do—and that is, haggle over the price of your next hearing aids.
The worst that can happen is that they say no, but if they want your business, they may sweeten the deal, and you’ll save some of your precious dollars as a result.
Apparently, only about 15% of shoppers in general ever ask for a discount, but the good news is that of those that do ask, close to half get a better price, according to this article. You may find that a bit of haggling gets you a better price on your next pair of hearing aids too. It’s certainly worth a try.
