Sometimes we get too comfortable with a supplier and may be overpaying for their product or service.
Recently our calendar supplier had asked us for our order for 2011 calendars. They always do this in Februaryand give a bonus of 10% more calenders for free if we order that month
Well, we went and asked for some financing terms instead of the usual $3,000 up front
Guess What? We go terms of 50% down in 60 days and the balance within 90 days
Never hurts to ask!
Have you had a similar experience with a supplier that you can hare?
