I am an IT manager for the company I work for and while I would consider myself good at my job, my biggest failing is on the purchasing of the equipment, I hate dealing with sales people and all the bull they give.

So I thought I would ask you bargain hunters, what is the cheapest way or the best deal I can buy 37 x 17" LCD monitors?

Tesco's have these for £99 at the moment .... how about phoning/emailing them & asking if they can give you a discounted price for 37 x

I thought you meant baby monitors, I was like wtf. I'd suggest finding the cheapest monitor you can find, then contacting that shop and say you're a business and you'd like to buy 37 of them, would they give you a discount, then the figure they say, keep bartering down so if they say something like £2000 (I dunno how much they would be) say something like you had in your mind £1500 and you don't want to pay higher than that, and keep bartering- usually they won't want to lose your business, especially not 37 monitors worth!!!

I'm an IT tech- best thing to do is setup accounts with the large companies and speak to your acount manager - get a few fighting over the price :)

Just found these on PCWB site, have contacted our account manager to see if he can knock a pound or 2 off too.

Eeh, so you're not dead then :)

Me, I'd set about the task by finding the cheapest monitor available (probably the £108 20" available at eBuyer), and then call various vendors to ask if they can offer you anything better. Be direct and relatively aggressive about it. This sort of thing -

"Hi, this is D McCabe of X"
"Hi"
"I'm calling today because I am the IT manager of X, and I want to buy X monitors. My best quote as yet is from eBuyer, who have offered me 37 monitors 20" monitors with 3yr NBD warranty at a price of £4000. They have the monitors instock, and are able to deliver them by Wednesday of next week. Can you beat that?"

If they say yes, say you'll consider it and take details so you can contact them back, if they say no, give them your email address, and tell them to drop you a line if they think they can do better at any point between now and the end of the day.

You've just got to remember at all times that you are the man with £4k to spend, you're the man in control, you're the man with the power. It's up to you to bully them, not the other way about. If they want to mess you about, tell them you're a busy man, and don't have time. Demand straight answers. Put them on the spot, make them nervous. Make them pander to you. Sales people, remember, study psychology. It helps them analyze their victims and give them the poorest deals. Come on stronger than them, and you'll save plenty of money.

Good luck with it all, dude.
