Poll Started: 26 July 2011. Which UK companies can you haggle best with?

Haggling isnít confined to fly-filled bazaars, it happens here with broadband and TV companies, breakdown covers and more. We want to find out which companies are most up for negotiation.

If youíve haggled (ie, asked for an unpublished reduction rather than gone for a deal or used a voucher), let us know whether you succeeded or failed below.

Select the companies you've tried to haggle with and let us know if you succeeded.
