#13845935 People who buy up all the stock to flip them on eBay are the dregs of society

Posted by PetersHere on 03 October 2017 - 07:27 PM

Simple solutions here. Either put in the tiny bit of effort or use some semblance of foresight (if you think something might sell out soon, put in an order) to make the purchase, or forget it ever existed. Bitching and moaning doesn't do anyone any good. Whenever I want something, whether it's the SNES classic, a Mondo poster, or something else, I manage to get it. If I'll be working and can't, I forget it exists. Simple.

Yeah, people who don't sell things for profit will never understand or appreciate how much aggravation, work, and time is required. Many I suppose work for the man so have no idea how hard it is to actually make a profit on anything for yourself these days. When an opportunity like the nes classic or snes classic present themselves for an easy flip to double $$$ then anyone who passes it up is pretty stupid or comes by money so easy they don't care. Having said this no I did not get in on the SNES classic (barely got a NES classic to put up for myself) because in all honesty I didn't feel like standing in line at walmart for 6 hours. I had a friend who got there at 5 but was first in line so glad he got one but he spent far more than $85 if he considers his time worth anything. I still would not be too surprised if these are not bringing $200 around Christmas unless nintendo is willing to produce about 20 million between now and then. 

Bad flippers flip high demand items because, like you mentioned, it takes a lot of effort. The key to good flipping is to find low demand, highly sought after items, especially when you can flip from ebay to amazon, or vice versa (many idiots don't price around). One example, that I flipped for nearly two years, was the Witcher 3 art book from the CE. I bought loads for under $20, sold them all for over $100. Then as time went on, I was buying on ebay and selling on amazon the next week. That's all dead now though, which is why I'm mentioning it (I wouldn't invite competition). The point is, this stuff isn't worth it. Do a bit of research and you can find things to flip that take zero effort to acquire, and once you've found it, all you need to do is stay up to date every other day. Minutes. No sitting around refreshing websites, waiting in lines, driving to stores etc. Best part is, no competition either when you find an overlooked, low demand item to sell.You become the go-to seller and you set the price. Work smarter, not harder.

well it does look like these wont be hard to get - which IS what Nintendo promised, so good on them. 

 

Although I should probably wait till after the Christmas season to reserve judgment.

Hard enough to get to annoy fans, easy enough to get take me reselling a waste of effort (current ebay profit is under $20 per). Nintendo knows how to screw everyone over. Kind of funny.

This isn't even worth the hassle of the refreshing for this little plastic box. What a shit company to make buying a product such a hassle. This is why I never and will never buy from Nintendo. I'm not sitting here for twenty minutes refreshing so I can give a company my money. Bunch of bums...

Wether we want to admit it or not, our country was built on slavery. But hey, I don't want to start a long, unnecessary discussion on this thread.

Literally was not though, it was built on the successes of the industrial revolution, industrialization, and post-WWII lack of competition.

OT, but I'm so happy to be done with the "underworld" part of being a pot smoker. I'm a fairly new resident to Oregon but I'm not leaving until Cali gets with the times.

You don't like being an "outcast" whilst taking part in one of the most popularized things in the nation? But how else can you be a cool kid?

Just head over to the website, grab a coupon code, activate it in your steam client, then purchase the game on Steam. It's currently on sale, so the final price comes to $12.

No insert to put in a disc into the steelbook, so you will need to purchase your own if you intend to put a game in there. What a pile of shit.

It's things like this that make you realize it's the end of the world.  :-({|=

Even New Vegas was better which was a pile of crap compared to FO 1 and 2.

You're insistent that we know your opinion on Fallout 3, and why I don't know, because we don't really care. I assume you'll have something to say on the next page as well about Fallout 3 being bad.

I wish the days of super-over-produced LEs that would sit around forever before getting dirt cheap hadn't passed us by. It seems like every big LE these days sells out everywhere before release.

People were saying the exact opposite when things were over-produced because everyone wanted their CE to be special and rare.
