Overpriced compared to who..
What if the purchased unit is defective and needs to be returned..
Who pays the return freight of the defective unit?
After the 30 day period, who handles the warranty?
On the internet there will always be a better price..
But before confirming the purchase be sure you can answer the above basic questions..
Amazon is a terrific retailer. Their diamond jewelry bests those found at brick/mortar locations such as zales, bailey banks, Jared's, etc. you can save 70% buying jewelry from amazon compared to the big guys... And walk away with better quality stones and gold to boot.
Bottom line is, know where youre buying from. What good is 0% interest if you are paying msrp? I'll pay cash from the lowest selling retailer and make out in the end from both sides.
In California, the cost advantage from Amazon for no sales tax
will end soon.. The business model of purchasing via the internet is changing, and will continue to evolve in the future as the states try to cover their deficits.
Everyone likes a lower price but one needs to make sure about who they are buying from and what are their warranty, return and respective adjustment policies...
The profit margin on CE products is simply too slim to provide all of the elements and support one may expect, as these are costly..
Just my $0.02...
