As I mentioned last week, I placed an order for a new Canon SD700. Despite Amazon reporting the vendor was in stock, they were apparently backordered, which was a very frustrating email to receive, by the way. So I decided to poke around online, see if I could find another option. Turns out in the 2 days between ordering and getting confirmation, the Amazon price shot from ~$360 to ~$420)!
I went to Google, and searched for “SD700” (pictured on the right) and saw a result from “bestpricecameras” (not linking to them, you’ll see why shortly) at $309! Wow, good deal. Did another search on Cnet, nothing better.
So, I visited that site and rather than click through, I called their order number. While on hold, I went to do a bit more research.
As the sayings go…
Better late than never
If it seems too good (or too cheap) to be true, it probably is.
Thankfully I didn’t lose my $309 along the way.
