Quote from TigOlBitties View Post :
Nothing immoral about selling a product at a price the market will pay. This is the foundation of a free enterprise economy. If there is a scarcity of supply and someone wants to pay an inflated price then they're welcome to buy it at that price. If it's being sold at too high a price then it won't sell.

I have made thousands buying and reselling part time and it takes hard work. Some advice I'll give people is keep a separate checking account so you know exactly how much you are making, I have a chase checking account with no monthly fees because of the minimum balance. Use this account to pay for everything involved from product and shipping to Ebay/Paypal fees. This way you can accurately watch your money grow every time you sell something.

Same here...$1500 daily min...

lol Every year it's the same idiots piping up about how resellers are evil. I made thousands reselling Wii's when they weren't at every Target or Walmart. F em. Haters are gonna hate & no amount of reasoning & logical discussion will change their tiny pea-brains.

Gotta admit, I made a killing on Wii's as well. It was really nice. Anybody think the Wii U is headed in that direction?

it happens with EVERY console, esp. during holidays. it's a premium for stupidity, laziness, etc. of waiting 'til the last minute to buy a gift. Big Grin

$1,000, cash, might amount to a month's take home pay for some folks, or be the difference between having a good Christmas or no Christmas for the kids.

Family is important, no question. But $1,000 can sure make a big difference to a LOT of families. Middle and upper class folks often just do not seem to grasp how hard it is to get by on McWages.

why did this thread get a thumbs down? is there something i'm missing? Confused
On the one hand, you could say that everyone needs cash, so the resellers need the BF item as much as anyone else.

On the other hand, a deep BF discount might be the ONLY way some folks could even consider buying many things, and knowing someone bought it just to resell it.. they feel like they got cheated out of an opportunity by someone that doesn't really need it. Often the resellers are blatant about why they're there and quite willing to use nasty tactics like line cutting, "holding their place" overnight with a chair, inviting 20 relatives to "join you in line" just before the store opens and other such BS to get their inventory. People can get mean over money.

It's a bit more complicated with the NON-BF deals, because the resellers are taking advantage of SD for financial gain, and "cheating" other SD'ers out of a deal by buying more than they personally need. It's a business to make money, rather than a community banding together to save money. Many folks just feel that it's wrong to "pay back" people who are generous enough to share the deals they find by denying them future ones.

Is there any chance I could still pre-order the WiiU at Walmart? Or what other stores still have pre-orders for it?

I agree with you. That's why I'm selling it to them.



It's funny you say that. I make 74,500 a year at my non-decent paying job. I also do arbitrage on the side as a hobby. Why? Because I like money.
you act like $75k a year is a lot of money. only broke ass people go through the trouble... to keep tabs and constantly scheme to make a few a bucks.

and try to be original when you insult someone, instead of just repeating what they typed
