If something is about to expire soon and you know you will be able to use it or freeze it right away, ask for a discount. I have been able to get a dozen eggs for less than a quarter because they were going to expire that day. If package is damaged on a product, but the product is still good, ask for a discount. I once got a block of cheese for 50% off because there was a slight tear in a corner, even though the rest of the cheese was fine.
