Are your discounts costing you money?

Are your discounts costing you money?

You’ve negotiated a great deal on your office supplies.

Your supplier has cut prices to the bone on your core items of office supplies and you have negotiated substantial discounts on the rest of your purchases.

You’re happy with your deal as you have compared it against other suppliers and – on the face of it – it looks to be the best deal available, based on your perception of value and price competitiveness:

  • The net prices of the individual items – and the overall price of a basket of goods
  • The overall size of the discount offered on other items.

You have got the lowest prices and biggest savings when compared to other suppliers.

However, not all deals are the same! These two measures are often being manipulated by suppliers and what appears to be a great deal is actually costing you money!
