This was kind of a funny site today as on the site Futureshop there is this Blu-ray player on clearance sale for $4.97. And as you can see, people gobbled it up pretty quickly to the point where there is almost 5000 backorders on the item.
That got me thinking, would you even bother to try doing a backorder in these cases even though the chances are next to till that it will be replenished? For myself, if it was from a reputable company I probably would as you have almost nothing to lose. If it’s from a company I never heard of then highly unlikely. Good way to potentially stock up on gifts this way too.
