* In an episode of the American version of ''Series/{{Shameless}}'', Frank tries to sell a gold watch to a Jewish pawnbroker. After clumsily trying to get in the pawnbroker's favor by talking about how he thinks the [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict Israelis should just smash up the Palestinians]] (The pawnbroker supports a 2 state solution) Frank gets annoyed when the pawnbroker won't raise his offered price, saying that he's "Jewing him down" incorrectly.

By the way, this doesn't preclude ConspicuousConsumption, just that they will make it clear they got it at a better price. Usually they "know a guy" who can give them a fantastic discount on something, possibly because it FellOffTheBackOfATruck (although they would never stoop to actual stealing, themselves).

This is a LighterAndSofter successor to the old GreedyJew stereotype. ''[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Do not confuse the two.]]'' Even this trope borders on NWordPrivileges as, like any ethnic stereotype, it can be quite offensive when coming from an outsider.

In Great Britain, this trope is less common, since Jews are a much smaller and less [[YouHaveToHaveJews culturally-represented]] minority, and their economical niche is [[ThriftyScot filled by Scotsmen]], a never-failing source of British ethnic jokes.

* In ''Literature/TheBible'' when the Lord announces his intention to destroy the cities of [[WretchedHive Sodom and Gomorrah]] because the people are sinful, Abraham ''haggles with God'' over how many righteous men in the city would be enough to spare it -- and specifically, his innocent nephew Lot.

* Jacob, later known as "Israel", managed to buy his brother Esau's inheritance with a bowl of lentil stew. Although this was not so much Jacob being cheap as it was Esau selling his birthright too easily. (Lentil stew ''is'' delicious -- ask anyone who's had it done well--but ''really...'')
* One UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}ic legend says that God originally commanded all Muslims to pray 500 times a day, and when Muhammad was returning home thinking how can such a commandment be fulfilled, he met Moses who (remembering how hard it was for his people to keep all of the 613 enumerated commandments) ''sent him back to God to haggle'' about the amount. ''Twice''. That's why Muslims pray only five times a day. And Moses advised Muhammad to go back a third time, to get it down to three or even one, but Muhammad, not being a Jew, lacked the chutzpah (and [[JewsLoveToArgue taste for arguing]]) to keep the bargaining going.
