3 of them in-stock near me. Already have a 144hz monitor though   :-k  

You've painted yourself into a corner with that decision.  :)  Anything less would be torture to your eyes!

99 really isn't a great price on a 1080 monitor anyway.  and being 32 " is more of a con than a pro imo . would have to be cheaper for me to waste a trip to walmart

That is the Brickseek Group right? I used to see ti but then they enforced their members to not post deals until I assume their paying members got dibs on it


Yeah that seems to be the case

Here's why we can't have nice things

Here's the link if someone wants to try to get one

I wonder if these people are declaring their flips to the irs

Flipping is one thing, but posting pics of how many you hoarded is too much. There is literally no reason to do so, besides to rub it in other people's faces. Even if you're selling them, take a fucking pic of one and that will suffice.

Also I'm sure it's like crypto mining, as in there's lots of uneducated morons trying to make a quick buck that don't realize it's taxable.

The thing that gets me is that these have one HDMI port and one VGA port. I guess for HDMI it would be fine, but why wouldn't a monitor made in 201X come with DVI?

Not that I disagree with you, but since the monitor is only 1080p and 60hz, I don't think it really matters.

Sorta like why haven't they done away with molex connectors (and adopted something else), when they are a pita to deal with.

Probably because a dvi port would have been huge. maybe a mini displayport plug, so you could go HDMI, Displayport, DVI or VGA would have been better.

Not really clearance but it's the cheapest I've seen this for so far.

This post got overshadowed yesterday so it should be brought up again. It’s now $17, down from the $20 of yesterday. I was lucky enough to get a $10 discount by choosing store pickup but definitely YMMV.

Do you have the DCPI for Disgaea?

not sure what a dcpi is, but here's the brickseek for disgaea switch:

https://brickseek.co...er?sku=55521398

 

I see a store in Eagle River Alaska that has two disgaea switch for $30. Kinda a long shot for a cheapass member near that to see this... :)

 

Here's cave story:

https://brickseek.co...er?sku=55727399

 

When I searched brickseek in Alaska last week only one store had these clearance and now almost all the stores in Alaska do. It's odd because I don't see a lot of other zips clearancing these games out and we're usually later than other areas in getting clearance prices.

Per the picture of the stack of monitors... I just want to know who BUYS all that crap (from the flippers, I mean).  Is it just people who are too lazy or just simply don't care enough to do simple research to see this was an item that was just recently clearanced out?  There's a reason this stuff was clearanced out to begin with, it didn't sell...so it was either crappy equipment or it was something that didn't appeal to most people (like a huge 32" monitor haha).

Supply and demand is regional. I'm sure there's more to it than that, but that's a huge driver.

Perhaps, but when I see people trying to offload a bunch of cheap stuff like that, that's usually a huge red flag for me to begin with...there's a reason they have so many and they're cheap haha.

Saw a bunch of Pokemon stuff on clearance, namely some boxes that normally go for $20 for $11 and change.  Got these two for my kids but there was more...

What I want to know is how these people have the space for this crap. If this is the norm for them their house must look like a warehouse with cheap crap lying around everywhere. Not what I'd want to live in.

Yeah idk, I mean I guess if you are really hardcore doing it you can make a good amount of side cash, they seem to live in well off homes from their photos

Maybe I'd be more tempted if I knew of a market for the stuff. Most marketplace sites around me seem to be filled with people who want everything for way under asking price.

Me "Here's this like-new great condition item...sells new for $250, I'm asking only $150"

 

Almost every person that replies "Would you take 75?"  "How about $50?"  "I saw somebody selling this for 25! (forgetting to mention it was in terrible condition and barely usable)"

 

Good lord I hate selling stuff in marketplaces here haha.

Too lazy? People have 9 to 5 jobs, kids, home life, and many other things. Do you really think the average person that doesn't resell has the time or willing to out in more effort from their already busy schedule to run around town looking for a maybe item. No. People pay for the ease of an item and still get it cheaper than majority of stores buying from Amazon / eBay.

People always complain about the buyers but don't consider that maybe their time and effort is worth differently from yours.

Also majority of clearance electronics has nothing to do with quality of the product but clearing shelf space for newer model merchandise. Also helps when these items aren't on the sales floor half the time so no one even knows it's there to buy. Clearly people buy these items, which you should figure seeing as you're in a clearance thread for hundreds of post.

Actually, they have these and a few more on the website for free store shipping.  

 

My daughter has really gotten into Pokemon again lately, so I grabbed a few of them.

Not trying to call people out, I get we all have different ideas of deals and what our time is worth...

 

I actually have three kids, do freelance work from home and wife works 9-6 and we have no family help haha.  Just saying, if I can do it most can.  I know you flip a lot and while I don't agree with buying out stock to sell you seem to find a good middle ground from what I've seen of your posts in the past.  With my "too lazy" comment though I was more referring to people who don't research reviews/prices/recent sales/etc rather than people being too lazy to run around town.

 

As for clearly people buy it... yeah clearly they do I'm just wondering WHO haha.  Like I said, no offense to flippers it's just when I see people trying to unload 15 monitors I tend to have a hard time from keeping red flags from going up around me.

Awesome!  I might head back there later pick up some of the other ones for Easter baskets...  Yeah both my two older kids are suuuuuper into Pokemon right now, basically all the kids their age at their school are.  Definitely a good deal when just single packs usually run $4-5.

Most people aren't willing to drive to 10+ stores in the hope of finding an item thats been on clearance for months. People don't do extensive research or find out clearance prices. Unless you look for clearance items frequently, you aren't doing anymore than going to one store, striking out and not trying again.

But I do agree, I have no idea what these people are doing selling such high profit items on FB / CL. If you're able to find 10 of a monitor, it's likely that no one in your area wanted or needed it.

For me at least, I have space for these things but it isn't cheap junk. My inventory is constantly moving and selling. I offload my items within a week (I assume most full timers are too) so space is never a problem. We're not hoarders...

Where do you have most success selling if you don't mind me asking? I'd think shipping would kill a lot of deals on larger items and like I said my local marketplaces are a joke lol

That was my thought.  My daughter flipped out when she got a Mega Ex or something the other day in a random pack.  This way the packs are cheaper and I can give her a box every once in a while as a reward for good behaviors around the house and at school (that's the plan at this point.)

Guy that lives down the street from me tries to flip cheap stuff like shampoo, canned goods, toys, etc. His garage is packed floor to ceiling with boxes. Looks like there is enough to move sideways against the walls and maybe the middle. It's absurd to see every time his garage is open

I was in a store and in the electronics clearance was a portable projector called the Anker Neblua Mars Lite. It’s $250 marked down from $350. I did a brickseek search to see if it were any cheaper at other stores. It took the mixing of different keywords, but I finally got a sku. (why didnt you find the sku when you were in the store? Because I’m dumb). It came back with zero results despite 6 of them sitting a quarter mile from me. The same item is on amazon for the same price, which I’d never pay, but maybe $125ish.

eBay, Amazon and local markets. Bigger items I ship depending on the profit. I buy items knowing before hand where to sell so any big item I have I know it'll sell in what marketplace I sell it on.

Not that I always sell stuff. I have a handful of smaller items I can't sell but that's mainly due to restricted items and not wanting to just give away stuff I can't sell.

You sure he flips or is he an extreme couponer. If you go on couponer groups on FB, all their homes look like that. Usually very organized too.
