Negotiate a better deal

Every first offer should be met with a polite “no”.



Never accept your bank’s first offer without asking if a better deal is available.

Whether you’re buying a GIC or negotiating a mortgage, bank reps usually have a bit of room to negotiate. If you’re a good customer, be sure to bring this up—and suggest that you’ll look elsewhere if you can’t get a slightly better interest rate on your GIC or mortgage.
