Hi bindibadgi,

Was $212.60 (new) a dealer price or an individual ? You saved $66.40 !

Thanks for sharing info. and lots of luck with the Mojave !

It was $250.10, but with a Black Friday deal at 15% off, that’s what brought it down. I could resist no longer!

bindibadgi…...I respect your decision to NOT answer my question, however, just in case my post wasn't clear, I was asking if you bought from a dealer or an individual. Nor was I asking for their name, as that's your private business.

Sorry Toddb64; I missed the intent of your question. It wasn't deliberate!

I bought it from a dealer, but it was not an advertised price, if that helps. It probably doesn't, but I don't know if they want to be named.

Thanks bindibadgi

I was just curious because of the real low price on a new unit.

I'm sure they don't want to be named, since they were selling below the dealer discount allowance.

Calm down guys. Sheesh!

He got it on eBay from a dealer that was selling it for $250.10. That is a normal price new for this machine. eBay had a 15% off discount code for Black Friday. That brought the price down for the buyer. The dealer still ended up selling the machine for the retail price.

Waveoff,

No offense meant, but Sheesh!, if bindibadgi had said that (the above colored blue) in post #1039 on page 104, it would have explained everything and should have eliminated any further question.

What can I say? I'm a noob. I have been on other forums in the past where flame wars ensued if the word eBay was even mentioned, so consider me burned by past experience.

My apologies if you needed more information than what I gave.

Anyhow, I'm really excited and looking forward to the mail arriving. I'm considering a trip to the beach. The bonus is that my wife will think it was for her benefit!

Don't sweat it! I know what you mean about mentioning the word "eBay" on certain forums. I've seen guys get banned by powertripping moderators who feel that eBay can't be mentioned by name because they're not a site sponsor or whatever.

Don't mind the people who feel the need to be extremely particular about details.

Good luck with the new machine!
