Hello guys, There's something I've always wondered and that is, why are second-hand items so expensive on those places? Like if you take a video game that is $30 brand new (free shipping with Amazon), then you see a lot of people selling it for 25 used? I mean, really? Is 5 USD so much of a difference to people on the US to prefer buying it that way instead of getting a sealed, fresh, mint, brand new item for 5 bucks more? (and in some cases you add the shipping costs and they end up being the same price as new!). Just bothers me a bit, since I've never been able to bid or place an order for used items, since the prices are so close to the regular "new price" that I don't see the need to bother just to save some spare change. If you were buying like 100 units then yeah.. but obviously people are not doing massive bulk ordering of used items (don't think so), so it's not like they probably intend to save. In the end I always end up buying the new item and tell myself another few hours wasted, why do you hold your hopes?. And then we have the sellers that will offer a new game for $300 when the regular price is $40 or $50. What are they expecting? I understand in the case of things like the PS4 which is momentary but really, when the item is still available (aka not collector's), who in their right mind (to put it politely) would grab the item for 10x more? I just talked about games since it's what I'm currently shopping, and got reminded of making this question, to hopefully understand if there's more to it that my eyes can't see. But I've seen it in a varied amount of different articles over the years. Thanks for reading. Any thoughts?
