I wanted to find out if I asked for a discount would store clerks give me the eye and make me feel weird? There's only one way to find out. Let's do some of that secret shopping. ??? the day after Christmas, a big day for sales. It's easy to find the lowest price online. It's not as easy when you're in a department store.

I'm heading into a bunch of different stores to pick random items and see if they'll match or even beat the prices I find online. 160 on the box. Yikes. Reporter: First I just ask for a discount. Is there any discount that I'm not thinking of? I can bring it down to 144. 144? Yeah. All right. Okay. I'll take that. Reporter: The problem is I found the same shoes online for another $25 off.
