Even in sales I do partake in, I am either buying stuff for myself only, or as an investment that I hope to turn into a future profit sale. Outside of an occasional here or there as a friendly favor, I am unlikely to part with those items in bulk later at a discounted price, but I would have happily bought more at the time, and passed along the savings had someone made the request. For example, maybe I go in and buy 4 of something on clearance - 1 for me, and 3 to sell. If someone comes in here later, I'm not going to (outside of the above-mentioned favor) turn around and give away all my potential profit that I spent time and money and planning on. But I would have happily bought 4 more for you or someone else had it been pre-arranged.
Just my two cents, as we say.
Reality bites, my friend - while I've seen a lot of examples of people putting themselves out for fellow forum members, expecting total strangers to provide you with a bunch of sets at cost, package them up and send them halfway around the world seems a tad over-optimistic to me.....
PM me with whatever you have on your mind about this.
I didn't mention it previously, because I assumed that was a higher price than was being looked for.
On a note over MVR, I wanted to ask if $75 (with shipping to my country) is a fair price to pay for it right now?
@bor2112, I guess I have missed your post that day or else I would have worked on something with you surely as I have been asking around to be helped out and always mentioned IF someone has multiples, I would be willing to pay a fair markup on the costs.
I'm not willing to pass it along at my cost to someone whose intention is simply to hold it for future profit sales, in which case I would just do that myself.
Obviously, I would be relying on the honor system in this regard.
@evileddie1313, I might just ask you to buy some stuff for me in future :)
edit: should note that I'm in Texas, USA, so people in the USA would be easier to trade with, but I won't rule out overseas if it makes sense.
edit 2: I should also point out that I paid full price for them (or pretty close to it), so these were not 50% off sets.
edit 3: I just checked, TRU is still selling these sets for $79.99, so if anyone in the USA wants one, there you go... Free shipping for it as well...
I bought 2 POTC White Cap Bay #4194 on 50% clearance ($42.50 w/ tax) noping to exchange for credit. Cant return anywhere since barcode has black sharpie line thru it. Be more than willing to sell for cost plus shipping & PP fees.
