Five Ways To Save On A Piano Purchase
Buying a piano is no joke. Depending on the kind of piano that you intend on buying, it could set you back a couple thousand dollars, and even up to the point of it reaching nearly twenty thousand dollars.
If you're no piano lover, player or enthusiast, you'd be thinking the exact same thing any logical thinking person could think of. There has to be something else that's better for you to spend your money on! Having to spend so much money that could be enough to buy you a decent car in full is really hard to come by nowadays. However, if you really do feel inclined to buy a piano for you, your family and your home, you should be thinking about anything and everything that you can do to shave some dollars off that price tag.
1. Wait till the piece that has caught your eye is offered with a discount.
During sales, we are usually met with the more familiar statements like a twenty to thirty percent discount or whatever. When buying an expensive enough piano, perhaps a grand or something close to it, a twenty to thirty something percent discount would translate into savings of as much as five thousand dollars or more. That's a lot of money, considering that it can be yours thanks to some store or employee discount.
Either way, this is one very, very good way on saving a whole lot of money whenever you are thinking of buying a piano. Check on your nearest stores or on the internet sites. There's bound to be a discounted piano out there with your name on it.
2. Know your budget, and work within your range!
If you only have ten thousand dollars to spend on a piano purchase, make sure that you don't go overboard by buying a piece that costs nearly twice or even three times your budget size. As a way to save on money better, make sure that this time around, you should get to committing on your promises, limits and conditions that you give yourself. We know that it takes discipline, but you can do it.
3. Know what piano to buy
Saving money on a piano purchase also means that you should know what piano to buy. So you need to make sure if the piano that you want to buy is either the regular one, an electronic piano, a grand piano or any variation of it. Here's a little tip though. If you've got your eyes on any piano that has a “grand” in its name, you'd better be ready to whip out a huge wad of cash or a credit card with no limit.
4. Keep an open mind, but don't get brainwashed by salesmen.
You should make the final decision on whatever piano you want to buy, not the salesmen or attendants that are trying to assist you. That's because they will most likely let you buy the most expensive one in the store, or the most expensive one that you can afford so they could turn in a bigger profit.
