Shopping and Bargaining in Spanish

by Dave Clark May 27th, 2011 More

Spanish Video Lesson – Shopping and Bargaining in Spanish

I Love Bargaining in Spanish!

For some people, bargaining to get the lowest price when shopping in Latin America is awkward and uncomfortable. However, Spanish speakers expect you to do it – it’s part of their culture! I have bargained hundreds of times in Latin America and absolutely loved it! Here are a few of the techniques I used. If you try them, please let us know about it by commenting here on our blog or on our Facebook page. Our question of the week on Facebook will be, “What do you want to buy?” (see below for Spanish equivalent).

Here’s Your Vocabulary of the Week (taken from the video above):

What do you want to buy?

¿Qué quiere comprar?

I want to buy…

Quiero comprar…

…a shirt

…una camisa

…a souvenir

…un recuerdo

…a hat

…un sombrero

…a hat (baseball cap)

…una gorra

…a poncho (ready for this one?)

…un poncho

…a purse

…una bolsa

…a wallet

…una billetera

To bargain


How much does it cost?

¿Cuánto cuesta?

No way, too much

Demasiado, ni hablar

I only have 10 pesos

Solamente tengo diez pesos

I’m going to buy it in another store

Voy a comparlo en otra tienda

It’s much cheaper there

Es mucho más barato allí

Thank you very much

¡Muchas gracias!
