I may make a purchase at ABES. Any last words.
and their actual selling price is often much higher than what they advertise in magazinesThat's one of the oldest and sleaziest scams going, which has faded with all the online ordering going on. You would call to order something and be told there was a price increase, but since the ad has to be in three months in advance, it isn't reflected in the ad price. There is always a disclaimer to allow them to do this. In fact, there is always that disclaimer with honest retailers. The kicker is, six months later, they are still advertising the "old" price.
The bottom line is, dealer cost on that unit is about $360-$400. So how do they manage to sell it for $260? Not by ethical methods I assure you.
