Benefits of habit “Negotiate lower prices when possible”

✓ Reduces spending on bills
✓ Increases savings
✓ Frees up money for other expenses
✓ Can help save for long-term projects

First step:

Once a week


1. This week negotiate lower prices once.
2. Next week do it twice.
3. Keep increasing until you do it everyday.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. Have your bills and other statements with contact information in always visible location. That way, you won’t forget about them.
✓ Let the app help.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve received your first re-negotiated bills and due statements, reward yourself by putting the difference of money into savings account.
✓ Celebrate small victories. Every time you perform this habit, congratulate yourself! Say “I’m awesome” or “I’m so cool” out loud and with a smile on your face.

Tips for beginners:

✓ Confidence. Don’t be afraid to take more aggressive stance in the negotiation. Most companies know very well that acquiring new clients is much more expensive than keeping the current ones. They will offer you a deal one way or another if you’re insistent enough.
✓ Build a scenario. Research the company and your reasonable possibilities. Once you have them, build a small scenario in your head or on piece of paper so you would know what to say and what you want. Again, don’t be afraid. You’re their client. They must take care of you.
✓ Think of alternatives. If the straights are dire, keep in mind it’s always possible to go for the competition. If you need to save money and you see a better offer, go for it.
