Why did EB's Piggy Exclusive figures price jump from 8.99 to 12.99? Anyone have any ideas?
If I remember...
If I remember correctly, somebody on this forum once said that EB is notorious for high prices on pre-orders, BUT the price will in actuality be less when the product is in stock.
Could someone back me up on this? I remember someone saying something like that, but I can't remember if it was for EB or some other online supplier.
Hope that helps!
Yeah I do remember that.....I think. But it really made me mad! I had my money order ready to send off and and I look and they have risen the price 4.00! Come on EB! What's up with that!
Word to the wise...
the EB exclusive for Series 2... The daredevil Gonzo I believe... is at 8.99...
learn your lesson from piggy and don't wait for them to raise it next time. Order it now.
Pre-order prices are almost always subject to change. I believe that is listed-- in small print-- some where on the EB site. I suspect they tossed everything up on their site as quickly as possible and later went back and looked more closely. Sometimes it takes a while for the pricing people to talk to the web people and get everything worked out. We're gunna pay more for the exclusives. No way around that. It's capitalism-- demand = higher prices, scarcity = higher prices.
I think the reference to prices going down on EB was in regard to international shipping rates.
It's probably not a coincedence
It's probably not a coincedence that it happened about the same time that the $15 price tag came out on the TRU exclusive. Since TRU is selling the Kermit in stores for $12.99, I suspect that might have had something to do with their thinking.
Very Good Point
Payment on the pig
Hi guys, i already put a down payment of $5.00 on my long haired pig, I wounder if they will rasie the price? I got five on the Muppet Labs too, I'm gonna call today and see if the date changed from June 5th.
