I need a Palm IIIxe...can you guys hook me up with the best deal??

i sell them at work for 229, but i'm not sure how great a deal that is compared to the online prices that you could find.

I think the best thing I've found is at outpost.com
Its 249, with free OVERNIGHT shipping and NO TAX...
but I am hoping for something better...

hey raffi, maybe my deal will be the best you can find then, and you go to ucsd, and i'm coming down to fallbrook (near oceanside), where i live, and i could bring it down for you this weekend...or you could come up and grab it from my store. I guess that would demand some sort of trust though because i wouldn't really want to just pay for it out of my pocket until we meet up, so you would have to paypal me (or any ucla students that you might already know) the cash for it, but it is your choice.
i'm also down in sd, how much are you willing to sell one for?

oh my god! a lot of people want these things, i guess. I work in the computer store, and i told you guys that i won't charge any more than the store charges me, but i guess if there are this many orders, i'll have to charge like 5 bucks or something more than the price, after taxes, for "handling." The problem is that we are out of stock in the computer store at the moment, so...when we get back in stock, i can contact the three of you. I would bring them down this weekend, but...like i said, they just aren't in, and palm hasn't told us when they will be shipping us anymore. I'm pretty sure that they will send more in by the end of the school year, but if they don't...i guess i wouldn't be able to get you the deal. Like i said, i'll e-mail you guys when they come in. I hope they come in for you guys.
ps - don't spread this deal anymore; this is right on the edge of illegal. Remember that the price (afer tax) will be about $247.90 (229*1.0825 for tax).

3COM IN STOCK, PALM IIIxe, 8MB, Palm 3xe, FREE Elegant Palm deluxe case by EO 2 GO ($30 value) Pocket sized Palm IIIxe stores names addresses expense e-mail and Travel pack software $ 245 $10.00s/h
If you guys want that, its at www.ucdweb.com (http://www.ucdweb.com)
I have bought a lot of things from them, and they are reputable.
Also, www.harmonycomputers.com (http://www.harmonycomputers.com) is where I bought mine, and it is also 245 and I think s/h is like 6-9 bux. So if you are in CA, it would be to your advantage to get it from NY through harmony to get rid of tax

me and a friend went to staples and told them that circuit city had it for $180 and they matched the price without calling to verify. worth a try.

mdrumm: they really didn't call to verify? On a Palm? Queer. But as much as I love sticking it to Staples right up the tailpipe, I think it would be preferable to keep it somewhat above board. Once you range into the lying/fake username/etc., the jump to five-finger discount territory is not that great at all!
05-26-2000, 12:00 PM
No it wouldn't be worth a try! Hey, I'm up for screwing Staples with a legal deal as much as the next guy. But telling lies and faking IDs and such isn't what this board is for. I'm sure most of the senior members on the board would agree.
It's crap like this that makes Staples pull such a nasty opionion towards customers.
Ço£o§§ü§ - yeah you can read into it...
