Whenever comes to online products buying, especially for those huge electronics products, what might be the questions arose in your mind? And another important thing to consider, base on our experience, is the geographical location of the online merchant, as the farther the product being deliver, the more expensive the shipping cost will be.
Some online merchants also disclose about their buyers location, and not willing to spend extra mileage to deliver their products outside their own country or not willing to deliver the products to certain countries.
For an example, if you entered a keyword search for the LG’sÂ 42LH3000, a 42-inch LCD HDTV, you would probably get various quote on prices, features, packing and shipping discount.
Out of curiosity, we have done some minor testing to see how is pricing of LG 42-inch LCD TV across some of the U.K’s popular online merchants’ sites and here are the results:
- Dealtime.co.uk = GBP472.80;
- TestFreak.co.uk = GBP474.99;
- Amazon co.uk = GBP479.99;
- Comparestoresprices.co.uk = GBP487.19.
Pricing difference is not really significant, as an approximate of GBP15.- for the biggest volatility, but for deal hunters, this might be a good starting point and basic idea on how would you start your online quest for hunting the cheapest one on the net.
And we believe, there are many other credible online merchants on the net that might provide even better services and prices, anyway, who would love to buy expensive products in current economic climate?
