The Deals Thread (CLOSED! See the last post for the link to the new thread) - Page 480  

post #7186 of 9815
Both companies are NY camera companies turned electronics stores. B&H and Buydig. Although B&H is known to have great service and not be involved in bait and switch type marketing, it is something that agencies have had to crack down on whereby specifically companies in New York advertise camera's for a super large discount. Then you buy and they send an email that you need to call in to "verify" your order. Once you do so they proceed to tell you the batteries are not included, the charger is not included, the box is not included, and try to sell you these items until the price get's up to a level they will make a profit. If you don't fall for it, your item goes on "backorder" until you cancel or the item actually does eventually drop that low.

Anyway all I am saying is this could be the latest cheap advertising ploy to gain attention for your website. That BuyDig deal was posed all over here and all over slick deals and many other places. Its actually cheap advertising if you look at it. I'm not sure though how they plan on getting around 200+ negative feedbacks on ebay. Maybe they convince ebay to cancel everything and prevent feedback? IDK.

Just my thoughts.

Took a hit on those since refunds need time to get through the bank.

 

Anyways, MrSpeakers is offering two offers on his Mad Dogs w/ Dog Pads (modded Fostex T50RP).

 

  • USA purchasers will get a HDTracks gift certificate for $20 with every unit purchased, no coupon needed.  Certificate will be sent after the return period
  • Global (outside USA) users get free USPS Priority shipping using the coupon FreeInt

Ordered a pair the second I received that email. Take off 40 bucks in shipping is a pretty damn good deal.

Pretty sure that you can leave feedback even after both parties have cancelled the transaction. The fact that they posted the same deal twice is very suspicious when they're claiming that it was a typing error. It would be interesting if a large percentage of the 440 or so orders they cancelled left negative feedback for their stunt; I doubt we'd see that selling tactic on ebay again.

I bought an Amperior. Very fast shipping, no complaints except they sent the wrong color.

Sony MDR-V6 cans, back on sale, $49.99 @ amazon.com.   not as good as last night, which was $40, but hey, that's still a good price for anyone who missed out.

Can't believe sennheiser did such a lockdown on these headphone's price. At the $500 price point, there are a lot of other headphones that should give it plenty of competition.

Also Fiio E10 still on sale for $45 at http://www.adorama.com/FIE10.html

Funny I was thinking the exact same thing and that I bet a lot of retailers are steaming mad after Senny killed any discounting then turns around and marks them down $200 direct on a coupon.

+1: Caveat emptor.

 

Quite a few Manhattan-based camera stores are grey-market importers with no ethics. They also prey on tourists on and near Times Square.

 

B&H and J&R are completely legitimate.

Gotta love it. One of the reasons why I don't really want to buy Sennheiser anymore.
