I would write a hub on this but I did, check it out. It is about getting discounts in stores and for products and services. #1 tip is just don't be a pain in the but and have a reason for asking for a discount.
Yes, you can get yourself a discount even at places at Best Buy if you know the right types of things to ask for and how. No, the sales person can't usually work down the price but you can negotiate services and extras.
Negotiating means saving money. If you area good negotiator, then more money you will be able to put in your pocket. If I ahd the chance to show a clip form a movie of how to negotiate I would tell you to watch A Christmas Story. The scene where the family is looking for a Cristmas Tree and the sales person is trying to sell them some Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. The father mentions a store that is selling fake trees at a discount price. The sales person then says he will thorw in some rope and tie it to the car. The father agrees. Once the sales person knew of another store that might take away his profit, he had to add something to the deal to "sweeten it up". The sales person got the sale and the father got a real tree.

I wrote a hub, "Negotiating for dummies" that I feel answers this perfectly and simply and does not give you that sick dead feeling that you ca not do it or it is too difficult.
If anything I think my article empowers the reader and puts fire under them to get the feeling that they can do any thing.

You yield, with a grimace…
You give away at your peril.
