Craigslist has been very weird lately. I've been trying to sell a few things and haven't gotten any interest on anything. I always make sure my buyers are happy with the price and condition of the item. Even the flakes are missing. Anyone else?


Anytime I list something it seems like I get nothing but if I dont delete it and leave it up like a month then like a month after I posted it suddenly people start calling me/emailing me about it. It's like they're on a 1 month delay or something.

I swear some of them do that because they think they can steal if cheap because its been up so long. I have some big ticket items on Craigslist and once they've been up for awhile I get the "will you take $50?" emails for an $800 item.

I emailed the yacht guy and asked where the funk he is getting his stupid prices for his atari stuff and he just responded with an ebay auction for an atari that was listed at $500.

seriously do people really STILL not understand how ebay works? I can list my used underwear on there for 2 million dollars if I want, it doesn't mean they are automatically worth that much. I hate sales like this where they state "everything MUST go" then charge ebay prices, it reminds me of some idiot here who had a moving sale where everything HAD to go because he absolutely could not take any of this stuff with him.....but he wanted $500 for an NES with 20 common games. It is also strange how it is always the poorer sections of town where I actually find stuff like an NES with 20 games for 2 dollars and the rich people want double ebay prices

You sir are what we call a hypocrite.:booty: Welcome to the club. I too expect to get top dollar for my shit on CL while at the same time may try and offer lower than some people want on there.

Albeit some people on here though are just outfuckinrageous. There's at least 2-3 in the thrift store thread who bitch if a prior gen console is over $10-20, even if it's complete and works.:roll:

It also irks me when people go through the effort of doing a deal, and then they just dissapear suddenly. This happens only on craigslist. Nowhere else. No response to emails or phone calls. It's been done to me through email hundreds of times, and even a few times driving to meet someone which gets me pissed. I can understand if you change your mind, but have the guts to tell me. Don't just leave me hanging. I mostly avoid craigslist now for these reasons alone, it's happened so much. It's just not worth it. If I have anything I want to recoup my hard earned dollars on, I can just go to a pawn or sell it to a friend of family or something. Yeah there's a pay cut, but at least there's no stress. Once you buy something, the value goes down, especially months later. That's something I comprehend. So I know what I'm losing but if I can recoup something that's great.

When you buy a system or game from me, you can test it out to your hearts desire, no issue with that. I encourage people to do that so they are satisfied with the items. Like I said I don't have a problem giving people fair deals. But I prefer dealing with straight shooter folk who know common courtesy.

Craigslist should really look for ways to weed out the degenerates who make it hard for us experienced buyers and sellers to work with.

There have been a LOT of assholes buying up the Best Buy deals and trying to resell them on craigslist. Best I can tell their ads are rotting unsold at the high prices they're asking, at least. Hopefully they get left with a bunch of inventory and wasted money.

I've been posting lists of the deals each week and links to cheapassgamer to hopefully curb some of this reseller's business.

Yeah really, I've come to realize that most of the people with good stuff and good deals have went into hibernation, or they just throw their stuff back in the basement. "Why bother, too many flakes". They try using craigslist, keep getting shot down by flakes, so they go to ebay or withdraw.

So a few days ago I found this ad
http://newjersey.cra...3197911645.html

It sounded sick! Boxed earthbound, secret of mana, and harvest moon? I'm in! So I texted the guy and he said if I took it all he could do $65. Sounds like a guy who just wants to get rid of some old stuff. I accepted and we figured out a date and time to meet. No reason to suspect a thing. Well first meeting he never showed up, I called multiple times and he never answered (first sign i should have noticed was I never heard him speak). So I went home and he texted me later apologizing about how he was in a business meeting. Well this guy says he's a 32 year old man so that sounds plausible (benefit of the doubt, stay positive). So we set up a second meeting time and both confirmed we were free and ready. Took 25 minutes to get there and i texted where I was, he says he was on his way. Waited for an hour in this parking lot for the guy who never showed. Eventually I just left and he texted me saying he was in traffic after I asked how close he was. Mind you this is a sunday, so no real traffic, and he supposedly lived in the town we were meeting in. I went home and said Fuck it, and didn't receive a single text like "where are you?" or something like that. I'm convinced this asshole was just messing with me, and boy do I feel dumb.......you cant promise a man a boxed earthbound and then take it away from him. I guess this just proves that if it sounds too good to be true...it probably is:wall: Stupid douchebag wasting my time.....

So you've essentially been giving yourself more competition in your own area and alerting that competition where they can get deals to resell?:lol::applause:

Get phone numbers. If they play that game, sign them up for some courtesy calls from various businesses. Credit card companies are good ones, they'll hound you. Timeshares as well.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

A few weeks ago when I was at my local shop, dude bought 2 of the bundles with dance pads (Store had them 2 for $10). He also picked up a DDR game as well, but the best part was when he asked the guy if he could open it and trade one of the games. Guy at the shop says "I'll charge you $5 more if you want to trade."

Kmart clearanced all that crap for $5 a while ago.
