As for East Coast not being an authorized dealer, when it comes to a Panasonic purchase I don't really care.
Check, money order, and wire transfers are also the currency limitations of online crooks. All three are near impossible to revoke intime if you have a reason to.
Legistically there is 0 reason not to include debit cards in the promotion if "avoiding fees" is the reason....debit card fees are really low compared to normal credit cards. For most businesses debit will come out lower cost than accepting checks.
(Except debit charges can actually be contested with some bank cards)
EastCoast also refuses to accept any returns unless you chose to refuse delivery.
You have 0 recourse if things go badly after delivery and if an issue does come up the possibility exists Panasonic will dump the warranty coverage for not buying from a authorized dealer as they leave themselves that opening in their ToS.
The real question is are you willing to make the gamble that nothing will go wrong over a measily 2% promotion when you have so much more leverage and recourse without it?
Oh and those resller ratings... They've been caught faking them. (Copy / Pasted reviews with only minor changes)Edited by Tolken - 1/18/13 at 7:07am
