Reply from seller:
"Hello, Other redemption certs sold for $10.00 more than we are asking. As you know I can ask any price I wish for any certain item. Because it might not actually cost that much doesnt mean I cant ask that much. What about the bids on $2.00 items that go for much more than that. You might not like this but it is not your problem. Back off if you dont like it and just dont bid or buy if you dont like the price. I personally could care less what you think. I have had several people ask me when I was selling the vintage figures included, if I would sell them just the certificate for the same price I was asking for the figures. Your disappointment does not upset me in the least, just dont buy from me. "
What an *******.
I wouldn't mind seeing the message that you sent him first that triggered the reply.
You got it. This was the message:
I just wanted to ask what it is that makes you think it's okay to try to charge $69.99 for the stickers from the vintage figures. Maybe it was an error? But the only thing I can see here is someone trying to take advantage of someone else by convincing maybe an uninformed person that this is something special and worthy of that much money. You and I both know that for $69.99 you can buy all the toys, and get the stickers for free. So what it looks like, is like you're trying to find someone to make a mistake so you can get your set for free.
Stuff like that makes me sick. I hope there's a reasonable explanation for the price you're asking or that maybe it was supposed to say 9.99 or something like that. If not, I'll just say that it is always troublesome to see this type of thing happen."
And after his reply, I sent this last message:
"You're absolutely right, you can ask for whatever inane dollar amount you want.
Here's to hoping no one is gullible enough to be taken advantage of by you.
Have a nice day."
I'd also love to see redemption certificate auctions that ended at $79.99 or higher. Surely no one is dumb enough to pay that much for these? Maybe last time around when you couldn't find a Biker Scout, but this time they're all as good as the others.
