Q: How much, on average, can you bargain down gym prices in Beijing?

Joined a gym recently but tried to bargain down the price. The best I got was an extra 2 months for free. Is that good or should I have kept pushing for a cheaper price?

I wonder what the additional cost for this perk is going to be for a membership.

Even in the gym in works it works like buying stuff on the street. They will show you a price (even a price list, whatever), thats the start. They might have a promotion if you come with your friends and not just alone. If you then try to get cheaper or free months and are still not happy, just leave the venue. Maybe they will ask you to leave your number and will call you later to accept your price or follow you outside immediately and finally accept ur offer or reduce the price. Of course it depends in what area you live... anyway, try to figure out how much other people pay, on websites like dianping or ask a chinese friend to investigate this topic for you.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
