    Sounds like something may have "fallen off the back of a truck" so to speak. And if that's the case, might as well guarantee the sales by not putting the prices through the roof.

    He might be recouping the costs in Shipping & Handling, as that's $12. Still, (as Prisoner said above), I'm guessing that this guy other got them as "they fell off the back of a truck" or received some sort of discount that allows him to sell at that price and still make profit.

    That's a decent price. Shipping is not bad considering USPS rates. It cost me almost $10 to ship an Alt from the west coast to the east coast with Priority mail. Still the total with shipping is slightly higher than retail.

    4.97 I think but thats a gas saver too. You might not get it at the first store.

    If you look at the seller's other auctions, he has a total of 6, 5 still with a BIN of $35

    OK - I see.
    For some reason I always assume the best "deal" you're ever gonna find is if you wait a couple of months after the release and get it for like $15.00 on eBay.
    That's just my (flawed)theory.
    ... :rolleyes2  ... only... if ... you PROMISE ME ...
    You WILL read the disclaimer before attempting ANY of those techniques ! ... :gen069:

    I am too impatient to wait. "Gotta catch em all!" lol I will read the disclaimer, not like I have any alternators yet. :(  Time to pony up I guess. I promise to do what you're instructions call for.

    Meh, I just gave in and bought one.For a whopping 3 or 4 bucks over what I'd have to pay at the store including salestax, it's worth not having to try and find the thing on the shelf.
