In the last two days I've offered on two iPads that were very overpriced and told them that you could buy them brand new for their asking price. Both of them came back with the "Link me to a place you could get em that cheap for" response. Both times I linked them to BestBuy.com where the price was cheaper. Why do people think these things are worth their weight in gold? I picked up an original iPad today...

So I can offer you an used iPad at $50 more than retail. You pay me for it, and I can go to best buy and buy a new one, ship it to you, and pocket $50? ****, how many do you want, I'll leave now...

Haha. People are just unrealistic sometimes and they get upset when they're wrong. For his price of $500, you could buy a brand new 16GB iPad 3! And then he tried to tell me that it was a fair price because I didn't have to pay sales tax and it came with a case... Lol

I personally buy all of my stuff on the net to save money on sales tax. But you must be pretty wealthy to not have to worry about saving a few dollars. Claiming someone is idiotic for trying to save a few bucks, that my friend, is ignorance at its best.

I don't know (or care) how you ship things, but I package my stuff up properly using packing supplies, pay for Insurance and my time to stand in line at UPS or the Post Office. It is obvious that this Ipad isn't for you because you don't want the extras, which is what make this a fair price. You must think I am some kid desperate for cash when I'm not. I am not trying to pawn my Ipad to you so that you can flip it for a profit.

Because a Priority mail medium flat rate box would be more than enough room and that only costs $10.85 with delivery confirmation. At this point it's comical, you're not the brightest bulb in the box.

Its your money, do whatever you want.

Plus, you don't get the 2 covers that come with mine. So right off the bat, you're saving close to or more than $100 with the BB sale price. On top of that, I checked inventory for all of the nearby BB and there were none in stock. So basically, even if it was on sale for $99, it means nothing because they are out of stock everywhere.

Life = complete. I have now heard it all. Shipping = the cost to ship and the time it takes to stand in line at the Post Office. God damn it, I've been doing it wrong all along.

****, seriously. Even though I just make a label online in 2 minutes and drop it off at the post office without waiting in line. But now I know I can charge and extra $20 to tell them I am standing in line

He's local to you so maybe he can teach you all the tricks. Personally, I package my stuff at home using a Priority Mail box of a size that fits, packaging peanuts, and then I print a label from PayPal. Then I drive to the Post Office and just hand them the box because they all know me and know I'm just dropping off packages, even if there is a line. You know what? I deserve an extra $20 for all of that.

And the boxes are free and the peanuts are free because they came with things I've ordered in the past. So in order to pay for those items and my time I should start charging $20 extra right?

It's a waste of time to even attempt to sell things on this website because every 15 year old thinks they're a hustler.

Lol. Still can't get over how he thinks he's going to sell a used item for the same price as a brand new item w/ warranty.
