Amazon.com is shipping to SL
« on: November 12, 2016, 10:07:18 pm »
Hi guys i just noticed today that amazon has allowed shipping a lot of items to SL!!

So far everything that i checked (games,computer parts) can be shipped except for TVs. seller needs to be amazon though.

only downside is shipping is very expensive. (shipping a bluray movie costs $9, a ps4 game $40 and a monitor $200)

they calculate and charge taxes to be paid at customs when you purchase, which could be a good or bad thing.

An asus gtx 1080 could be shipped for $782.26 which is still cheaper than buying locally

Fingers crossed that we'll get the black friday deals as well  ;D

lets see, if we get black friday discounts then it should be much cheaper than here. and i guess the base price of the item matters as well, looks like it costs the same to ship a 1080 and a 480, so it might not be worth it to ship cheap or heavy items

and it looks like they offer a grouping option to make shipments cheaper, so if a couple of us order multiple items at once it could be better

Something else about group purchases. taxes for a $20 ps4 game is about $7 and shipping is $40.

but when i put 4 $20 games in the cart taxes only went up to $14. so taxes per game went down to $3.5 each and shipping also remained at $40. which is about $10 per game.

you actually get warranty, but i guess you need to handle the rma yourself but it might be worth it since the probability of a device failing is actually quite low  :)

lets assume 1 out of a 1000 cards fail which come out of the factory within one year (which is ridiculously high). that probability is 0.1%. so is it worth it to pay that extra 10k?

for reference the failure rate for the recent samsung phones were actually 100s of phones out of millions which was considered unacceptably high

That's a ridiculously low estimate. High end cards have an average of 3-5% failure rate in the first year and around 1% for low end cards.
