    Hey, if you live on the rear side of the moon, the free shipping
    will make up for the price!

    Assuming they _do_ ship at all, that is.

  6. They make a profit by accumulating the difference between
    their loss leader and the market price as compound interest
    before shipping, probably. Read the invisible small print.
    I bet the money accepting part of the store works very well.

    "6. Please note that prices change frequently, and we cannot
    offer price protection on any product that has been already
    shipped to you."

    I read that as "After we ship, we rack up the price a lot and
    charge you the new, elevated price" ... though I may underestimate
    them.

    There is no protection in the U.S. from this kind of hucksterism.
    There is "buyer beware" but some gullible but innocent people will get
    taken, otherwise these stores would fold.

  9. Funny, last I read he was back in business with his cousins fronting the
    business although suppliers worked in a COD basis with him.
