The Hustle CEO Sam Parr Talks Discount Strategy: For a 29-year-old CEO with more than 1 million newsletter subscribers, Sam Parr is remarkably frugal.
When buying electronics, he always asks for the display model because it’s usually cheaper. He purchases a lot of his clothes secondhand on grailed.com. And he’s got a secret seven-word phrase that he uses to negotiate in almost every situation.
“When they tell you the price, [reply] ‘Is that the best you can do?’” Parr says. “If you ask that with most things when you buy, they’ll hook it up.”
