It is definitely on the high end but the same OCE went unsold a couple of weeks ago due to the seller having a reserve price that was $80 if I am not mistaken.

'Tis the season . . .

These days, the season starts even earlier.  I know that I am going to try to get at least 75% of the presents I purchase from online sources.  Order early, get everything out of the way and even if ship times take 3 weeks, I still have a month to spare.

I don't know what that is — and I have a hard time caring — but ... surely, she missed a decimal, right? Is it supposed to be $19.90?

I would think $1.99 would be even more appropriate than $19.90.

Those were freebies given to game stores when 3Eech came out. Pretty common.

It's been relisted at $2.99: click here for a good laugh.



But wait! Remember, this is Titan/Tonya, so be sure to include $3.65 for speedy Media Mail shipping, plus an extra 65 cents for delivery confirmation. :roll: Do not question the fact that $3.65 is enough money to send five pounds of goods via Media Mail, or that delivery confirmation can be obtained for no more than 14 cents.

Note that the $13 is to cover the USPS Parcel Post charges because it absolutely will not fit into a a box that is less than a cubic foot or weigh less than 4 pounds.  I feel the angry building again.

Don't. Its not worth it, its not. :)  Let the POS be a POS.  Sooner or later everyone gets what is coming to them, everyone. :)

Well I'm still waiting on them to answer my email(s) to them regarding the costs of shipping they have quoted to me... aparently the extra $$ is to pay for the shipping department (which by the way the postoffice comes and picks it up.. is this the case for all stuff I wonder, she said that they don't do M-bags for that reason (well one of)) so I'm paying someone to pull it off a shelf and put it in a envelope for me... all I want to know is what I'm paying.. over a week now and not an answer.. maybe they should employ someone to answer emails as well (oops that might leas to an email charge) :?  8O

Don't wait too long Brette.  The last time I bought one of their auctions, they sent me a shipping option for surface mail so I asked about it, didn't hear back after 2 days so I asked again.  Sent a 3rd email asking after 5 days.  Then after 7 days they file a non-paying bidder on me because I was waiting for them to respond to my email.
