The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Not that they'd let you haggle

Bendeistiyorum.com, which vends products in Turkey much the way Woot does in (48 of) the States, put up Nintendo Wiis for sale at a way-stiff price of 699.99 YTL (around $530). No one nibbled, and if I'm reading this thread correctly, at least a couple of regulars complained about the price.

Now I don't have the slightest idea how tight Wii supplies are in this part of the world, but I'd be willing to bet that the standard American practice of paying way over list price just to make sure you get something isn't going to fly with the Turks. Not these Turks, anyway.
