Default tip for buying a cheap new bike

i when to walmart to get a bike, i noticed that they had alot of bikes locked up out front on display, when i looked closer i noticed that these bikes were starting to rust from being left out. so i when't in and asked the sales person if they had the one that i liked still in the box because the one outside was starting to rust. she said that was the only one. then she told me that she's told her manager about the problem but puting them out front was company policy and that most of these bike had to be discounted. i asked to speak to the manager and when i complained about the rust he gave me a 30% discount right away. i took the bike home and hit the chrome with a little extra fine steel wool and a good wax and you could never tell that there was any rust on it. so a $130 bike cost me $90. the trick is to find a bike that's been put out recently and only has a little surface rust, but still has enough rust to be worth complaining about.
