Well, the price of the zumo came down again today. Now 678 with not tax and free shipping. Another 10 dollar slip. I have been keeping my eye on this. I plan on waiting until no later than the end of Feb to buy one. When will this all stop and the price settle??????

Glad to hear you are lookng at zumo. I love mine!

 

The price will continue to drop until it reaches a plateau... then you buy, and then it will go down again!

 

It must be an economic law in there somewhere. (I slept through most of my economics classes in business school....)

"It must be an economic law in there somewhere."

 

Its called competition. Lots of sellers out there trying to get your business and the product is now readily available. If you want it really cheap, wait until the next generation unit comes out and the price will go down further. Of course, you could buy it now and get the benefit of what the product has to offer, but maybe that's not worth anything to you. grin.gif

Check the seller's other listings. He is a scam artist. He has all types of high end equipment for very low prices.

 

If it sounds too good to be true......

He's not even that much of an artist. He's got some lower end stuff in there for way over MSRP!

Tis a scam my friend. Scammers will only use this type of payment as it cannot be refunded once you realize you've been fu.... screwed.

 

Thats not to say that people that only accept those payment option are scammers, but given the circumstances, I would bet this guy is a scammer.

I don't know how low the prices will drop, but I just got an email from AutoCom stating they have a new harness for the Zumo which will end the compatibility problems between the XM and Autocom.

 

Should be out in two weeks, according to the AutoCom tech who emailed me.

Ummm, think that would be Murphy's Law or possibly one of the many corollaries. Gets me every time I buy/sell stock! dopeslap.gif

I have a friend in Nigeria (at least I think he's my friend because he always offers me these fantastic money making deals grin.gif).

 

Well, I'm sure he'll want to take advantage of the great buy on the zumo from Mr. Zechang, so I'm going to forward Mr. Zechang's email address to him. I'll connect him up with a bunch of other people I know would be interested too. grin.gifwink.gif

659 at Compuless. Forrogle it. I am now getting very tempted. Free freight and no tax.
lmao.gif

 

I'm not sure where to start. smile.gif

 

Compuless.com is an interesting site... if you can read Polish.

 

I'm guessing you haven't read this thread for a couple days. The link to compuplus.com that I posted when the price dropped to $659.99 is still valid a couple posts up from here if you don't want to bother going through Froogle.

 

I'll probably wait until I have some semblance of riding weather before buying one, but the trend is a positive one. smile.gif

Back to the original question...

 

When will this all stop and the price settle??????

 

It'll settle for a while and then the next generation (either a higher end model, or replacement) model will be release and prices again will drop. Once the model becomes obsolete you'll find the absolute lowest prices on eBay and various outlet stores. Costco and/or Sam's Club typically get models just before they become obsolete.

 

My philosophy has become one of "Buy if you need it, but wait if it isn't needed".
