30% of the asking price is sorta ridiculous.  I generally ask to do an immediate deal at 25-30% off the asking price.  The counter typically starts at 10% off, and we generally settle at 20% off the starting price.  To me, that's the typical discount that a good retailer will extend to long time customers, so it seems pretty reasonable to me.

Probably a forcefield?
