The Newman thread earlier made me think about all the stinkin' deals Kramer has ever accepted in a jiffy. I'll list some and you can add more:

-Gives away 49 b'day wishes just because Newman started the bidding so high, at 50( and is happy with the deal, to boot)
-Goes to Morty to ask for a higher cut from the Raincoat deal, but ends up negotiating for the exact same cut!(25%)
-Settles for $20 from the Bank for the non-Hello when the guarantee was for $100.
-Free coffee for the rest of his life when he could've gotten much more.
-Settles for 750 for his life stories after
asking for 1500.

In all these 'deals', he inevitably accepts the other party's first counter-offer! Sucker..

What about the time he was suing the tobacco companies and settled for his picture on the billboard instead of money? That was a big mess-up... one of Jackie's many humiliations.

Tried to trade an Anthony Quinn t-shirt for Jerry's van. That was a non-starter.

Rugged masculinity? The man's a goblin. By the time this case gets to trial, he'll be nothing more than a shrunken head.

His deal with the coffee company Java World when he accepted all the café latte’s he could drink before they also included the “and $50,000”.
