I want to maximize the bang for my buck. BioShock 2 had the "Vending Expert" gene tonic, which lowered vending machine prices. Does BioShock Infinite have anything similar?

I assume you tried the 'make-machines-friendly' vigor already? – David Yell Apr 3 '13 at 8:16

There is a single Discount Dollar Bill machine in the courtyard of the Hall of Heroes that sells a pistol clip upgrade for half the price (side note: buying this upgrade does not affect the Scavenger Hunt achievement). Other than that, you are out of luck.

Using Possession on a vending machine causes it to drop a small amount of money but the prices remain the same.

Similar, yes, but not the same. The Possession vigor will cause any vending machine to hork up a pile of Silver Eagles, once per machine. So you get some coin out of the machines, but there is no way to affect the prices directly.
