This month’s Smart Money Magazine has a great article on saving money on everything you could ever possible want. The story has sections on saving money on clothes, health care, education, entertainment, investing, cars and even electronics.
From the article:
“But increasingly, the savings don’t stop at the mall. These days you can get discounts on everything from dental work to a Ph.D. The reason: transparent pricing. Online marketplaces like StubHub.com, for example, make it easy for consumers to find out where scalpers are reselling tickets for less than face value. Colleges now provide stats on their aid packages, revealing what the average student really pays and prompting more requests for tuition discounts. And who would think you could put the screws to your doctor? You can, now that insurers like Aetna publish the low rates physicians accept from HMOs.
Of course, you need to know how to use this avalanche of data to your advantage. We’ll explain how the numbers can help you negotiate with car dealers, snag cheap tickets and buy designer fashions for a song. And we’re not talking a 10% discount here and there. Think half off European vacations, $10,000 off the price of a new car, maybe even a tuition-free ride at an elite four-year school.”
