I enjoyed meeting Carrie, Bob, Meital, Maria, Liz, Janet, Karen, and many more readers. I also got two tips from them I wanted to pass onto you:
- If an item is on sale at Nordstrom, you have a better chance of negotiating a discount than if it is full price. Because after a certain point, sale items are shipped to Nordstrom Rack, where the company makes even less money off the item. Ask a salesperson if this is the best they can do on the price of a sale item. A reader said she has gotten a deal more than once.
- Southern California residents can buy “twofer” tickets during the off-season (called the Summer Fun Pass in-season), and you may be able to sell – or buy – the second ticket at a discount. One reader said this was possible, another said Disneyland was writing your name on the back of each ticket so you could not hand them off to another person. Does anybody know which one is right?
I speak to all sorts of groups (public, private, religious) and tailor my talks to your interests. Email me if you need a speaker and want to save money!
