    Default Out to lunch Kijiji Ad

    Just to state it for record I just own two Playbooks and was considering a third, below is the ad I came across today and the txt converstaion that transpired...

    Me: Looking at your playbook ad on kijiji, did you intend to price it at $750?
    Seller: No $700
    Me: Do you know they are only $149 at Futureshop or anywhere else?!
    Seller: Cuz it's boxing day prices
    Me: uh..No that's normal pricing has been for a while... good luck with that...

    Update: One more reply...
    Seller: How much you want to pay
    I couldn't resist...
    Me: $100

    No reply......

    And buyer will show up here asking for help, and asking if they got a good deal. And what's up with the bulge on the back of my new $700 PlayBook?
    It was recently pointed out to me that SugarSync was still in my signature, and no longer available for free. It was a nice (free) ride, SugarSync, but I'm seeing Box and Dropbox now, via BB10 integration.

    I have seen similar ads but none with such an outrageous price as what you found. Most appear to be asking for about 50 dollars more than retail, and I have to just shake my head in disbelief. Although I have sent a couple emails similar to yours to educate the seller.
    Thanks for sharing.
    There are definitely deals to be had on Kijiji. I recently got a 16GB PlayBook for 80 dollars and that included the journal case.

    this is the same on ebay too. I've look for general pb stuff on there and have seen loads of bidding wars going on where either 2nd hand or nearly new pbs are going for more than retail price. here in the uk the prices have dropped since August and I still see people selling their used pbs for over 150 plus.

    no clue, but I just wanna yell at people and warn them!
    I own a Playbook - who says men can't multitask!
