The rucksack is, what, a 1000 bucks on the site.
There's one on ebay for just shy of 1000 bucks, which amazes me since he offers no incentive to buy it. Why buy from him for nearly 1000 when I can buy from them for $995 and get the added benefit of being on future online exclusive invites?
But if this reseller happened to buy that bag for relatively quite cheap, say $200, giving him an obscenely low-ball offer (relative to his asking price) is not too bad at all relative to what he's into to it for.
So, offer the guy $500. He might still be making good money and you would likely never get that bag on sale for 50%. Even $600 would be good for him and a steep 40% off retail. So, go ahead and low-ball the guy. You never know.
Might you be the seller? ;)
Ya, maybe I will.
Didn't know if something like that would ever go on sale on the actual site.
