Why do you make some purchases online and others in-store?
I tried using ebay.com to purchase my a Sony camera a few months ago. I was introduced to ebay.com.ph by a friend after giving her an inquiry call regarding camera specifications and recommendations. I remember her telling me that I should try checking it in ebay as most of the prices are much lower than those that are in-store.
True enough, I got the latest model of Sony's Cybershot at a very low price! It was even delivered to me for free! But the best thing of it all was that when I got this model, it wasn't even released yet in the Philippines!
