Why do MJ's on eBay sell for more than they cost at magicjack.com? It doesnt make sense!!


Magicjack.com = $39.95 + 1 year free + 1 free trial month + $5-7 shipping?

eBay I have seen them sell for over $50 just for someone's USED MJ with like 6 months left!

Can anyone explain this? lol

Maybe it comes with a desirable area code or prefix? Sometimes MJ runs out.

I have seen several items sell on eBay for more than can be bought elsewhere. Perhaps, they feel that anything sold on eBay has to be a bargain without doing any research to discover the contrary.

Some people get engrossed in winning the bidding war without regard to what they are bidding on is actually worth.

That's true. I was looking for memory a month ago. I saw an auction for Corsair memory saying it was brand new, unopened "except to carefully remove the UPC symbol."

That made me curious. Searched for Corsair memory and the same 2gig matched pair were selling for $85 with a $40 rebate ($45 total cost plus shipping). This guy was selling it for minimum-bid $55 (plus shipping), and it went for $65 (plus shipping).

I got caught up in a bidding war on Ebay for a used talking caller ID desk phone , paid $35 + shipping for it.


Next week found the same phone on sale at Walgreens drug store for $9.99

Boy did I feel stupid ! Embarassed

Don't know why people want to pay more then retail, but if you need to purchase why not save $ 10 bucks!

They are selling you a coupon from the Entertainment book, Each Entertainment book comes with two of them. I made a post previously here in the lounge about it.
