For those of you with Mac's looking for parts... Say away from macpalace.com!! I tried ordering a part from them which they advertise for $48 only to get a response claiming Apple is now asking $75 for the part. They told me if I still wanted the part I needed to send them the difference. I politely responded telling them no, that they could honor their advertised price or refund my money. Well, I got a refund.

 

Their site still has it for $48, not the $75 they claim.

 

They are scam artists!

Don't take this wrong, I am not taking up for them.

This is a possible similar situation about websites in general.

I am looking to buy a new riding lawn mower. If I go to the actual brand name of the mower ( 2 different manufacturers ) and look at what they have I can see all the current mowers and pricing. But not really.

On 2 different websites that are just resellers they have some models not shown on the manufacturer's web sites.

I sent emails to the manufacturer's web sites and ask them if they are up do date and why do these other web sites show new models not shown on their web site. Husqvarna acknowledged that their web site is out of date. Snapper said theirs was up to date. I questioned Snapper about the model number on the reseller's web site and asked if he shows that model number. He said yes and sent me a price. That model or information can not be found on their web site by browsing or doing a search for the model number.

 

Just as model numbers, information, etc., pricing can be out of date also.

Hi

Unfortunately Apple has marked up the price on 922-8601. The new price is $75. If you are still interested in the part please send us $27 with PayPal. Our PayPal account is:

Do we know that?  Has anyone else here tried to buy at the lower price yet?  If so, what happened?

 

I only buy apples at the grocery store, so I have no need to try to buy this.

 

No one is going to try.   If you're so curious, and apparently dying to prove me wrong, then you try it.

Out of date is acceptable until someone PROVES you're out of date and you still don't update the site.   Their site still has $48 a week after trying to extort more money from me.  You'd think a seller who was "on the up and up" would update their site immediately once they knew they had an error.

It as been almost 2 weeks with the Lawnmower manufacturers and their site is just as it was back then, no change.

Big places move real slow to correct things. They just add them to the list of things to do. Sometimes they never get to the bottom of the list.

Showing correct pricing and/or products would be the top of my priority list.

They just did the exact same thing to me! I stumbled across this forum after searching the web to see if anyone experienced the same issue with them that I did.

 

I purchased a replacement display for my Macbook Pro. They had it advertised for $233. I paid and they accepted the funds through Paypal. They want me to send them an additional $302 for the order. 

 

Below is a copy of the email I received an hour after ordering and paying:

Overall the reviews from other customers are not very good for this company...

 

Reading through some of them it looks like they have also done this same thing with asking for additional money from customers via email after there order.

Making a habit of jacking up prices is very bad for their business. Once I find someone that is known to to that I avoid them like the plague.

 

Thanks for digging that up coolman302003.

Again, doesn't sound like they are ripping you off, It asked if you were still interested.  Did it not?

And you declined and they gave you a refund!

I'm not sure what $200 or $300 part your replacing, But I've never had a repair anywhere near that price in 8 Years with Dell and 4 years with an HP.

I don't understand why there's some defending these practices. Clearly, this company has a history of trying to scam people.

 

Trolling is sad.

Because its no different of a practice then the crap you 3 constantly support here with a certain company every other day of the week.

 

And define Trolling?

 

If I had a dollar for every mis- advertized price I've seen on the internet I'd be rich.

 

Gimmie a break.!

 

You think I've never been told a price Paid it and found out it was more?

That's life my friend

 

Next time Someone in the Directv Forums complains about a price they were quoted and didn't get.  You guys better not say a word!

http://en.wikipedia....roll_(Internet) Seems accurate.

 

In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtrl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2]extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally[3][4] or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[5] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[6]


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Ahhh... because unscrupulous business practices are limited to Apple products. Got it. Any other pearls of wisdom?

 

As far as your confusion on the part I was replacing... it was the entire display (not that I didn't already state that in my first post or anything).
