I have not written any post in this series for a long time. I give you an idea of how you can buy at a discount when there are no sales.
In fact, right now is the best time of the year to carry out this type of action. The idea that I am going to give you is very simple. Many people will have received gift cards for example from El Corte Inglés that instead of spending them they prefer to receive the money.
Many times you can find offers in classifieds such as Wallapop where they are offered at a discount. A 10% is quite common but negotiating you can get a few more points. I would say that being nice and not tightening the rope too much up to 20% is negotiable, sometimes just a little more.
Now comes the risk as with any opportunity. Be careful with whom you buy! I don’t have any one-size-fits-all advice here that will free you from falling into the trap of people who disappoint. If someone is willing to quickly lower the price, accepting the first offer of 30% discount on the card value you should be careful. The normal thing is that it is negotiated by exchanging several messages.
There are also people who are offended when the first “bid” is too low. In these cases I try to be nice. Messages like “I’ll give you 30” or simply put “30” do not work. Being a seller at Wallapop I have also received these types of offers and you don’t want to enter into a negotiation with the person on the other side of the message.
What is said is. This can help you get started and comply with the first reseller rule. In the purchase price is the profit!
