02.05.2012 | 睇價做人

[Volume 7 Issue 5, #1402]
假設你要買一樣嘢, 你覺得價錢高低係唔係最先決條件?? 你對於價錢嘅看法又有幾在乎呢??
  • 買任何嘢之前都會貨比三家, 格價後誓死都要去最平嗰間..
  • 以最低價錢買咗你要嘅嘢, 唔覺意見到其他地方都賣得比較貴, 你會不自覺地暗爽一陣..
  • 以最低價錢買咗你要嘅嘢, 竟然發現有其他地方賣得仲平, 你會暗嘆自己唔好彩, 定去更平嗰間再買多兩件以平衡心理??
let say you want to buy something, do you think price is the most important factor you will consider?? what is your point of view towards pricing??
  • before deciding to buy anything, must compare the price from at least three places, after that must buy from the cheapest no matter what..
  • bought the things you want at the cheapest price, saw other places selling it at much higher prices, you will feel thrilled and proud of yourself for a moment..
  • bought the things you want at the cheapest price, but realized some other place selling it a lot cheaper.. do you just sigh on how unlucky you were, or straight away go there and get another one to balance your emotion??

  2. If got few shops can compare at a walking distance with each other, I'd go and compare prices.

    But if not, it may be too much a hassle to do so. Not to mention wasting petrol. xD

    1. Likewise, I hardly do any comparison if I need to travel from one to another destination. Normally reach that place and grab.

      Err... my concept only apply to grocery, not electrical appliances. This aunty usually buy vegetables, dairy products, canned food and the price vary from 10 cents to 50 cents, perhaps?

      Delete
    2. But I do enjoy looking at the catalogs :D See the price first then decide where to go. Also means I'm doing comparison, right?

      Delete
    3. of course within walking distance then go compare, also depends on what you are buying.. groceries then walk a few supermarkets, if electronics then can compare catalog, and also if there are websites then can compare the price online.. i never miss doing this lah, because i always want to get the cheapest mah~~

      Delete
  3. I hardly do that as I can get most of my sundry stuff from my own shop.

    1. hahaha!! you are different, of course you already have the cheapest from reselling right??

  4. It's different if I shop for clothing.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i think clothings are all the same price right everywhere right.. but i usually go for them during sales and with at least 50% discount only, haha~~

      Delete
  5. Naturally I would go for the best price.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I go for 70% sales ones :p

      Never mind if the fashion is a bit out...

      Delete
    2. ya, as long as it's comfortable..

      Delete
    3. hahaha!! me too, because nowadays sales is like all year round.. i only wait until at least 50% discount.. :D

  6. But if I happen to buy something at a more expensive price than else where, I might get a little angry at myself.

    1. yeah, i think it's rather unhappy experience to find out you've bought something more expensive right??

  7. Frankly speaking, most of my customers do that. There are a few shops at my area so they usually compare prices.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if within walking distance for sure will compare prices.. especially household groceries, sure will compare and buy from the shop that offer the lowest price..

      Delete
  8. Funny..some customers would say: Let me check the other shop first..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hehehe, if I don't say it out loud, I'm saying it silently in my head :p

      Delete
    2. well, it's human nature..

      Delete
    3. hahaha, i'd just check the price but won't tell the boss i'm going elsewhere to check.. most probably you'd see me coming back and grab the item, because it's cheapest here.. :D

      Delete
  9. anyway, all customers have their own rights in choosing.

    1. that is of course, haha!! just like what i normally practice.. :)

  12. sometimes when u consider the time and effort to get from another shop which has cheaper price, it just might come to square one or even more expensive.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. but most of the time we just look at the explicit numbers we spend, but ignored all other implicit factors that may have increased the cost right?? :p

      Delete
  13. It's always wise for customers to check the price as well as the expiry date.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh, i always do that, it's been a habit.. though i believe very rarely we get expired items from shops..

      Delete
    2. Rarely will get expired items from the shops, but near-expired got. So better check for both the price and expiry date :D

      Delete
  14. In some cases, shopkeepers offer cheaper price for nearing expiry.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. actually i do buy those items sometimes, but make sure i'm able to consume them before the expiry date..

      Delete
  15. ok, so much for that..anyway, happy shopping!

  17. I will sure think twice if I want to go back to the shop who sold me more expensive stuff.

    ReplyDelete

    1. sometimes cannot blame also lah, not that the shop is selling more expensive, just that other shop is having promotion only..

  18. i will feel proud for a while after knowing that i bought it at lower price XD that feeling is indescribable!

    1. haha, yeah!! feeling so contended with our wise choice right?? especially when you know somebody bought the same thing more expensively..

      Delete
  19. I'm more towards the second point though 'proud' is not really how I would feel. I would feel lucky to have snagged a better deal. I'm not good with remembering prices unless it's for big-ticket items where the variance is greater than for sardines, for instance.

    I much prefer to shop at my regular stores than to shop-hop.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, i'm more practical because whichever is the cheaper place, i will shop there.. and i always remember how much i've paid for the item.. :p

      Delete
  20. Btw, I prefer this month's blog background than last month's which was dark (and ominous). LOL

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha, thanks but i think you like this particular background.. i placed the same one few months ago and you compliment that as well.. :p

      Delete
  21. Normally after bought, i will not check others place anymore, because when found cheaper will feel sad mah, better dunno lah.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I do that too, no point to check the price again for I would feel sad if I get to know I bought it more expensive :p

      Delete
    2. very true, usually after bought the thing better don't go and hunt around.. haha!! but sometimes coincidentally then no help~~ :p

      Delete
  22. #1: Seldom do that, usually grab and go.... Must change my attitude already - check out the price first and then only go to the best one.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, so unexpected!! i thought you are one of those who will compare price, haha..

      Delete
    2. If time permits, I want to see-see and compare. But nowadays time is very limited and would usually see-grab-go.

      I shop at hypermarket, pasar pagi, pasar malam, kedai runcit, kedai ubat, em, where else? Where I shop depend on what I wanted to buy :)

      Delete
  23. #2, of course I'll be the happiest person when I get to know that I grabbed the BIGGEST deal, hahaha! Normal reaction, I guess.

    ReplyDelete

    1. and especially you know that your other friends had bought the same item more expensively than you right?? :D

  24. #3: I would just sigh......

    But this possibility is rarely happen.... because I'm so cheapskate that I would always go for 50% or 70% discounted stuffs. Hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, actually depends lah.. if cheap stuffs and can store then i might buy more, else can just sigh and walk away lor..

      Delete
    2. I try to control my hand from grabbing more when the stuff I wanted is cheaper. Just buy the amount that I need.

      Delete
  25. Once I bought, I never bothered anymore - usually can;t even remember the price unless it is stated in the price tag. Drive here, drive there looking for the cheapest - such a hassle...and the petrol isn't cheap!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha, but sometimes we tend to forget about time and petrol.. because we just see how much money that we handed to the cashier.. :p

      Delete
  26. LOL...i normally do that too but wont go to till 3 places la.

    ReplyDelete

    1. depends if the places are within the same vicinity and walking distance lah..

  35. 買任何嘢之前都會貨比三家, 格價後誓死都要去最平嗰間..
    - 最多去一家比較,價錢啱就會買下

    以最低價錢買咗你要嘅嘢, 唔覺意見到其他地方都賣得比較貴, 你會不自覺地暗爽一陣..
    - 當然會啦!

    以最低價錢買咗你要嘅嘢, 竟然發現有其他地方賣得仲平, 你會暗嘆自己唔好彩, 定去更平嗰間再買多兩件以平衡心理??
    - 通常買咗之後都唔會再去睇同一物件嘅價錢,以免自己唔開心。

  37. hahahaha normally i would compare prices and get the cheapest one... but if the place is too far away, then i'd just settle down on that item provided the price diff isnt too much. i will only turn angry if i get cheated for a lot of money! if the price diff is just around rm 0.50 or rm 1 biarkanlah LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  38. When I buy I'll go for cheaper stuffs where else if my hubs, he'll go for quality.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 通常先决条件就係如果知道边间价钱比较平就会去边间囉!

    ReplyDelete
  40. 所以有时行街记得探下行情,以后就知要买乜嘢去边间买就会买到平货!

    ReplyDelete
  41. 不过,我通常唔会再价钱比三家,除非价钱贵得离谱,我先至会咁做!

    ReplyDelete
  42. 其实,计得嚟车油同时间都畀省得几多嘅钱嚟得多,你话我会特登再跑多几间比较下价钱吗?多余!

    ReplyDelete
  43. 每一间商场都话自己嘅价钱比人哋平,其实我就话嗰啲都係宣传手法,见仁见智!

    ReplyDelete
  44. 一般嚟讲,如果嗰件真係你最想得到嘅嘢,我相信只要价钱唔係太贵,我哋都会先“据为己有”,唔咁在乎价钱几多!呵呵呵~~~

    ReplyDelete
  45. 如果你係师奶仔每个星期或者每个月先至办成条街嘅货,咁就要考虑用最少嘅钱买最多嘅嘢,仲就省好多囉!

    ReplyDelete
  46. 如果单单係一两件嘢,咁我都唔会点省,总之价钱合理就得架喇!

    ReplyDelete
  47. 如果个个人似桃姐连买蒜头都要全副武装入冷房拣,咁就无谓啦!

  48. 生活唔一定都要下下跟斗零过唔去,人生点会快乐呢?

    ReplyDelete
  49. 有啲人会因为买得平所以暗爽,呢啲都係人之常情,胜利感嘛!

    ReplyDelete
  50. 话是话,省番嚟嘅钱积少成多,问题係呢头省得几多嗰头洗去,你话又有乜意义呢?

    ReplyDelete
  51. 身为精明嘅消费者当然係要知省识儉,所以例行价比三家肯定冇错!

    ReplyDelete
  52. 所以,你都係做个良好示范,吸引多啲人加入省钱大队!

    ReplyDelete
  53. 不过,一时失手买贵咗,都唔好自责吖!

    ReplyDelete
  54. 所以,买咗就算,咪再去其他商场比较下你交易嘅价钱,费事知道咗畀多,打击你嘅自信心,咁就唔好囉!

    ReplyDelete
  55. 哎哟,唔介意得更多架喇!试问边度有咁大只蛤嬲随街跳哦?

    ReplyDelete
  56. 所以,广告唔可以尽信!都係信番自己嘅判断能力罢啦!
