I am sorry for the multiple posting... my browser keeps saying "Error, post again in x seconds" - which I did... only to discover the multiple posting. I have been trying to delete the duplicates in the last 10 minutes but to no avail :(

Anyway, just ask them to give you a "good" price and start from there. I am 100% guarantee you - can bargain and different people pay different price (though of course they have a bottom line lah).

As for Harvey Norman and Best Denki... I also didn't know till I went shopping with my auntie relative who displayed her full auntie power and I was shocked actually got the thing her way. She then told me, "ya wat... I always doing that... you don't know meh?"

TS , just ask for a discount, can or cannot so be it since you should know estimated price from the price guide in clubsnap, and if it's quite expensive, you should have asked at least 2 shops for the price.

Cathay and TK do not give discount.What you see on the price tag is final...
Here is what happened in my case. I emailed CP for a quote. They replied. I then went to their Marina Square shop. I first ask for the item and the price. He quoted me something higher "fixed price". I then showed him the email. Then he said "oh, in that case..." then I got some additional items and I again ask him to lower the list price. On some of the items, he did.

You're right. I should have been more precise in my reply - at least those that I had bought things from, I could get something better than their list price. These are CP, AP, MS, and OP. Online ones - don't even know who to bargain with, so can't. As for "other camera stores" (TS's words), I don't know.
