i tried it at the walmart in coon rapids mn, a couple weeks ago, on an overpriced 22 inch computer monitor - a similar monitor was available at office max, for over $70 dollars less, so i asked a saleslady if she could match the price, to save me time and get them the business - she reacted by insulting me and embarrassing me in front of other customers and other sales staff.
so i went to office max and bought it, i am still upset by that b_tch. i have successfully negotiated many times at many places, including that same walmart, just other employees.
she didnt care about their sales, only about her coffee break, which i was cutting into, it seemed.
