  • Here are some phrases and words you can use when you talk about buying a new TV.

  • Hi, how are you?

  • I’m good sir. How can I help you today?

  • Well, I want to buy a 42-inch TV for my living room. What do you recommend?

  • Let me take you around the store. I’ll show you the various models and the specs.

  • That will be great. Thank you!

  • Peter, I need a new TV, but there are so many options. I can’t decide!

  • I like the new range of Smart TVs from Samsung. Theyve got Android!

  • Really? That means they are almost as smart as a computer!

  • Yep, and there’s HDMI, support for USB movies, and lots of other stuff.

  • Well, I was planning to buy either Samsung or Toshiba. Do you know about the features of Toshiba?

  • Nope, I am sorry. I’ve got a Samsung TV that’s why I know about them. Maybe you should ask the vendor.

  • Alright, I will find out more about it.

  • How much does this TV cost?

  • It’s for $900. It’s a great TV for this price.

  • Maybe. But I can’t pay all that money in one go. Can I buy it in installments?

  • Yeah, sure. But that will cost you about 2% more.

  • Hmm.. That’s not too much. How can I get it on EMIs?

  • Well, youll need to pay 20% of the cost, and you can pay the rest in 3, 6 or 9 instalments as per your preference.

  • What about the interest?

  • There’s no interest. Well just charge you 2% over the cost of the TV as processing fee.

  • That’s pretty good. Okay, I want to opt for 6 instalments.

  • Excellent! Let me get the billing done.

  • Well, I was wondering if you can offer me a discount on this TV.

  • A discount? We have it on sale right now. It’s already 20% down on the MRP.

  • I know, but it’s still too expensive. This is an old model and there are newer and better models available.

  • Yes we know that. That’s why we offered 20% rebate on this, but if you pay us through cash well give you a further 10%.

  • 10% is good, but I can only pay through credit card.

  • Hmm.. That’s fine. I will give you the discount. I just want to make space for the new TVs we are bringing this week.

  • Alright, I will buy it.

  • 10% is good, but I can only pay through credit card.
