Are you looking for a good quality television but don’t really care if it is the absolute newest and best? Want to beat the prices at Costco, Amazon, or Wal-Mart? A normal high quality name brand flat screen that came out within the last couple of years enough for you? If this is you, then there is nowhere else you should buy your next TV other than at your local PAWN SHOP. Not Amazon, not Costco, and not even Best Buy after camping out on Black Friday… you can EASILY BEAT all of those prices by buying your next TV at a pawn shop.
I know it sounds absurd, but the rumors about pawn shops being solely for thieves aren’t true. Lots of stuff is sold to pawn shops by people who are looking to make a quick buck before moving, or are temporarily down on their luck. The franchise I’ve bought from guarantee their goods aren’t stolen, and will fully refund you if something is ever proven to be. Pawn shops typically make their money off of people dropping off their stuff for a few bucks, and making periodic interest payments on it. If they decide they don’t want their item back or stop making payments, the store gets the right to sell the item. Pawn shops aren’t looking to make big profits off the items, so they price them to sell quickly.
The Top Reasons to Buy a TV From a Pawn Shop Are…
- The TVs in our house were purchased for approximately ¼ of the list price, and we got the model year that was only 1 year old
- Even though the TV manufacturer may not offer a warranty, most pawn shops offer their own store warranties
- Most pawn shops have a huge selection of TVs to choose from, and if not, there always seem to be plenty of other pawn shops in town
- ALL posted prices in pawn shops are negotiable – you should literally offer 50% of whatever their marked price is. They are very likely to accept or counter with something close to 60% of the posted price.
