You don’t have to be an expert haggler to save a few bucks here and there. Even the quietest, most timid mice can avoid paying full price by simply knowing when to bargain and when to move on.

When it comes to some purchases, such as houses, we all expect a little back and forth. But savvy shoppers will tell you even popular items are available at severely discounted rates. You just have to ask. Here are 15 purchases where you should avoid paying full price.

1. Car rentals

Warehouse stores, such as Costco and Sam’s Club, have travel deals that include rental cars. By booking through them, you’ll receive additional discounts you wouldn’t have access to elsewhere. Sometimes your company has a program that offers corporate discounts when traveling for work, so contact your HR department to see what’s available. Then, save even more by skipping pointless add-ons, such as insurance coverage, GPS options, and fuel charges.
