If you have an idea to buy a phone you should know what steps you need to take at a phone shop. Because you might be cheated or mislead. So you need to be alert and updated about the brand, style and the features of the phone that you need to purchase. If you already have planned which phone you need to buy you can straight away ask them whether the particular phone you are searching for is available in their store. You can also check the phone prices online and then compare it with the price the store is selling at.
Communicate with the sales person
You will anyways have to speak to the sales representative. He/she will somehow want to sell their products so make sure that you won’t be misled by them into buying whatever the product they offer. A local mobile shop might offer you great deals especially for seasons. Ask for any offers or discounts that they are willing to give. Don’t tell everything you know to the sales person. You might have a good knowledge about various phones and their specific features but don’t show that you know because the sales person might sometimes give you fake details and often exaggerate about their items. But at the same time they are well expertized in their field so you might get a chance to get to know more about the product that you are going to buy. You need to give him/her a brief description about the features you want.
Purchase your phone
You might have already planned what phone you are going to buy. The sales person must have stated its price, but if you don’t feel like paying that specific amount the sales person has stated you can try out some of these tricks. Tell him/her that you know a place where the same phone could be sold at a lower price than the price that they quoted or that for the same price free accessories are given. Tell the sales person that you want to buy the product at a lower rate or ask him for a discount, if not you can just leave that shop and tell him/her to inform you if they can offer you a better deal. These tricks might sometimes work and the sales person will lower the price. If he/she agrees to your deal you can happily buy the product. But before buying check whether the phone is in good condition and see whether the features you require are there and make sure that you get a warranty card. After confirming all, you can do the payment.
