Are you one of those consumers who hate to haggle? It just isn’t in your nature to negotiate a deal…you never know what to say or how to say it.
Help has arrived! A new app for your Smartphone, “Negotiate It” can show you how to do it. Ramit Sethi, author of the New York Times bestseller I Will Teach You to Be Rich has taught thousands of people how to save money and negotiate. He gathered the most effective field-tested negotiation scripts from his book and blog and bundled them up for you to use on your iPhone.
The Negotiate It app shows you exactly what to say — word-for-word — to save money on your car insurance, cable and cell phone bills, overdraft fees, and more. All you have to do is read the words on the screen right into your iPhone.
Dealing with customer service is always a nightmare. Half the battle is getting the right phone number and a human to speak with. The app also gives you a list of company phone numbers, a call log to keep track of your savings, reminders for when to re-negotiate, and more.
Negotiate It helps you find the company and, once on the phone with a hopefully intelligent human, gives you the tools you need to negotiate better service, prices or fees. All you need is the motivation and courage to pick up that phone.
All this can be yours for the fee of $4.99 to your ITunes store. Noted as one of the best personal financial aps by Oprah and websites catering to the financial field, it seems like a worthy investment. $4.99a to save hundreds or thousands…hmmm.
