6 Discounts You Can Get For Paying Cash

submitted on January 5, 2011 by vectra5 in "Member's Lounge"
With retailers feeling the effects of customers who can't get credit, shoppers with cash in their wallets have the ultimate bargaining chip when it comes to getting good deals. Cash discounts may not be as plentiful as in the past, but there are still some places where cash is king. Here are some things you can often get cheaper with cash.

1. Gas
2. Property Taxes
3. Gym Memberships
4. Cars
5. Medical and Dental Procedures
6. Insurance

The Bottom Line
When shopping around for good deals, be sure to mention if you're paying in cash. In many cases, you might get rewarded with some nice savings. At the very least, you'll have the advantage of knowing you won't have to pay off a large credit card bill or loan.

    If I pay gas by cash I save 10 cents . That's about 3%. If I use my discover or freedom chase credit card , I save 5% - not always though Big Grin

      Amex gives me 5% CB to pay my gym memberships on their card. Not sure if it's temporary.

    Sometimes using credit card is a good paperless trail & good recordkeeping so you always know what you spent & where you spent it! Mr Green !

    There a liquor store in Texas (Specs) that gives a discount when you pay with cash or debit card. My favorite place to buy booze. Mr Green
