I'm with DVS too. Whenever I offer a "sale" I offer 10% off up to $500. That's pretty standard around here. Those are usually postcards that are mailed or distributed through a home and garden show. Since I have a good idea who has them I just jack their price up 10%. Funny story: I had a guy want me to up it to 15% to match a competitor. I had this honest conversation with him and admitted that is what what he do. At the end of it he still wanted the extra discount. I said screw it, did his revisions, added 15% to the overall total, gave him the 15% and kept my initial extra 10%. It sounds confusing, but I pocketed a grand and he smiled from ear to ear.
