    I really was not planning on selling an extra watch, but I ordered both at 38mm and 42mm. My initial plan was to order two, try on in store, and cancel the one I do not want.

    I won't even lie. With supply so small, I am considering selling the one I am not going to keep. Is anyone else thinking the same?

    I may get flamed, but I do not see how it cannot cross anyone's mind.

    I actually ordered an extra SS just because my SS black won't ship until June (maybe I'll end up liking the SS more anyway)!

    But I'm not going to sell for a profit. In fact, I may use the SS as a giveaway in a contest on a website.

    I want to be "good" haha, but it looks like an easy way to stomach ~$700 on a smartwatch.

    Just schedule a try on appointment tomorrow, try both of them on, and cancel the one you don't want.

    I got the Black SS for the 5/17-5/27 and was also going to cancel when I tried them on tomorrow...how much would I profit if I sold it instead?

    probably a few pennies to round it up to the nearest dollar.

    This is not a must have like a phone.

    Yeah after realizing I just preordered $2,379.60 worth of Apple watches, I'll definitely be canceling lol

    haha. I would have done that, but I got the passbook notification before I realized the order went through.

    If you want to "try" to make some money scalping... here's the thing... Sports model's price is being constrained by the Watch - it's better for people to actually get the sapphire/SS so sports price will probably not go higher than the sapphire/SS model unless the buyer is desperate and stupid.

    sapphire/SS model... well, it's already overpriced, can't imagine people would pay a "premium" for an unproven first generation product.

    Then again, there are cheapskates who will offer you a lower price to "save you the hassle" from returning it to Apple :)

    Was gonna say the same thing :)

    However, I think OP can still flip the sport grey for maybe 550 on launch weekend easily

    I guess any thread that does against the grain is a troll

    I don't get the bad feelings for anyone wanting to resell. You just overpaid Apple 349-1100 for a watch. No venom for Apple. Just happy whistling. But a person wants to make an extra hundred reselling one? They're the devil..lol

    Buy low, sell high. Supply and demand. This is the american way. It's like apple pie.
