So.
This kid I know works at Hollister. Call it a gay clothing store all you want, I don't care. But he says he can get me a discount on whatever I want there, so of course, I ask him how much he can reduce this one jacket I want. It's originally $140. He tells me he can get it for almost $120 plus tax.
But here is the catch.
He tells me he wants me to pay him a little extra because he is the one getting the discount for me. In other words, I'm paying him money to save money. Pretty gay, IMO.

Should I pay him to get a discount?

It's this, BTW.

I think it's pretty sweet. Fuzzy and warm. I'm tired of the giant puffy winter coats >_>

EDIT: To all you guys who call it a stupid store etc. etc. I used to get clothes at Kohls and places like that, but I gotta be honest, clothes from Hollister and other 'cool guy' stores like that have much more comfortable clothes. I've only got a few shirts and hoodies from Aeropostale and a shirt from Hollister, so I'm not 100% fag yet.

dude, he is only getting you $20 off, and then he wants some $ for himself. i hardly see how its better than just buying it for $140.

maybe if he could get it for you for like $100, and he wanted an extra $20 or something.


how much is he asking you to give him?
#9
I wouldnt waste my money. You can get a perfectly good jacket somewhere else thats cheaper.

i think that's you answer right there.

he pretty much wants you to pay him so he gets direct profit. your technically not saving that much anyway.

and plus, gay clothing store? comon

why dont you just be nice and tell him to get the discount but then give him the $ as if it were regular price. I would do that, seriously, because if you are really willing to spend $120 on a jacket I'm sure you would spend $140 on it even if you didn't have this option... so spend the $140 and then your dude can buy you a case or something sometime and nobody will feel like they're getting cheated.

I'd shop there if I was made of money, but I'm not. Target clothes are the bomb. But like Wyantsm said, just buy the discount and give him the extra $20. If you were going to spend $140 originally, $20 isn't really much.
#21
Regardless of my opinions on Hollister and paying $120 for a jacket, how much are you really going to save? $20 off the thing, then how much do you have to pay the guy? You could save more money with a coupon.

In fact, you should tell the guy's boss what he's up to for trying to waste your time.

And their fancy name, in turn, turns the consumer into a walking advertisement. That's why you never see Hollister commercials. They don't need them.

120 bucks? For a Hollister jacket?

Jesus Christ, if you're willing to shell out that much, at least go get something that isn't worn by half the dicks in your school.

120 dollars for a ****ing JACKET?

#26
saving 20$ wouldn't be enough of a reason to buy a 140$ jacket I wouldn't buy otherwise... Just look around, I would never spend that much money on a jacket, you'll find you can get really nice hoodies for 50-80 bucks at various stores, just find some you like.

And I just realized I'm unbanned... PARTY! Reading people argue with the mods gets boring after a while.

You know it's a cool clothing company when the website doesn't have "men" it has "dudes". your off the hook amigo. Hollister, abercrombie, aeropostale and american eagle are all expressionless companies. but if you want it, fine, be a nice guy and give the guy 20 bucks.

I like to refer to them as the 4 horse men of the apocalypse.the signs that American decadence means a jacket cost as much as what some people live on for a year.

its only 20 bucks man

plus 140 isnt much for a jacket

Yeah seriously.
My jacket was $300 (albeit its leather).

I would never pay that much for that jacket because I live in Canada and it gets down in the -30's for a few weeks in the winter. That thing is tiny.

There: Fleece, lined jackets for $60 less than that Hollister jacket.

holy fuck that's one epic jacket.

You're not saving much money, he's just trying to make it seem like a good deal for you so he can make more. Plus, that's a gay hoodie, and 140 is waayyyyyyyyyyy to much. 50 or 60 max, dude. Just buy a normal looking hoodie save yourself 100 bucks and not look like a tool.

Go for it. If you really want the jacket, why wouldn't you? So the guy makes a little pocket money. He is doing you a favor. And think of it this way, It may be a case where he only gets so many things discounted so often. If thats true, then its perfectly reasonable for him to ask that.
