Millennials are now haggling in job interviews, hotels and airports

Elizabeth Willard Thames, 35, a financial writer based in Vermont, has learned to always negotiate.

“On large purchases I always say, ‘Is there a discount if I pay in full and upfront?’” The answer she often receives is yes. She asked to pay the total cost of laser eye surgery in cash, writing a $4,225 check, saving her $300. Thames surprised the office with the request, but they were happy to save the time not administering yet another payment plan.

‘My generation negotiates out of necessity.’

—Tyler Richard, 24
