    what to say for a discount?

    Hello,

    I'd like to know some expressions for haggling.

    Can I say

    1. Can I get a discount on this?
    2. Could you knock it down a little?
    3. Can you come down a little?

    If those expressions are incorect, please correct them.

    Any other expressions are welcome, and tell me what's the most commonly said.


    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't like to say what's most common, but I can add...

    Can you knock anything off this?
    Are you open to offers?
    Is that your final price?
    Can you do anything with the price?
    Can we do a deal on that?

    Thank you.

    And there's no error in those sentences I wrote?
