It was fun to be able to incorporate a Steeler Super Bowl moment into an edition of PurchTips within about a day of their victory. As I say, “timing is everything.”

I’m a little behind on my work from reading all of the Super Bowl articles this morning, so I’m not going to blog much to add to the article. I think that, by reading the article, it’s clear that you always have to ask yourself “Is this the right time?” before utilizing any significant vendor negotiation tactic.
