I disagree wholeheartedly, as another has said, if a person does not have cash, they cannot afford it, but what was not said is cash is king. That is very much the truth. From chainsaws to stoves, when retailers know I have cold hard cash in my pocket, I have gotten some amazing deals. Sometimes it is because they do not have to pay the credit card transaction fee, but mostly it is because they too like cash. For example, I once bought an old antique stove for 50% off because I paid in cash, on the spot. It was a $1400 stove, so I saved $700.
But that is hardly a one time thing; I can be driving along the side of the road and see something for sale and buy it, negotiating the price.
