Red face Take a hike Ganz!!!!!

I called a place that is located in the mall I go to and asked if they sold Webkinz Trading Cards.They are 3 bucks a pop and then I asked if I could buy the box.He said yes and he said the price is......$112!!!!!! I thanked the kind gentleman and went onto Ebay.I found one box(and many like it) that only had 1 bid and 6 and a half hours left. I checked the price and it was(including shipping and handling)...$20!!!!
I was very confused as to why Ganz makes the boxes of Trading Cards for retailers to purchase at around 100 dollars. Does anyone else feel this way and understand why I am so upset ?


Please Respond,
Bostie Luver



PS. Just to let everyone know, yes I know that Ganz can set their price to WHATEVER they want, I am just expressing my own opinion in my own defense!!

I understand! I went to get a pack of trading cards yesterday, and even though my store was cheaper to buy a box ($90) that is still awfully high! That is cool that you found it much cheaper on Ebay though. I will have to check that out.

ganz sells thier merchandise to retailer for a set price it is the retailers that do the hugh mark up i would almost bet the people who sell the ganz merchandise on e-bay either have a vendors license and buy the stuff at price from ganz or they order a lot of the mercandise by the bulk which would make the stuff cheaper for them to buy so ther fore they can sell it at a lower price

I never asked how much the whole box was at the stores around here, but the nearest store to my house sells their cards for $3.49. I refuse to buy them from that location 'cause I found them for $2.99 at another. I haven't checked ebay yet, but runawaysmile has a good point! I'll double check on that before I make any bids. Thanks!

Thank you so much everyone!!! I was worried that people would say "Ganz can do whatever they want!!!" or "Your just jealous that you can afford to buy a box!!"

we would never think you were jealous bostie but please be careful if you do get cards from e-bay make sure you read very carefully what you are buying their are a lot of people who don't clearly state what you are buying for example if is says sealed box you are probally bidding on a whole box but if it says 36 cards you probally are bidding on 6 packs make sure you read the sellers feed back also to see if they have a good reputation good luck on obtaining those cards
