OP says full price, not above rrp thus can only assume its below rrp

afraid OP it is profiteering though as you can get the rebate thus you will make £140 (i believe) profit!

edit: should be in feedback

technically not free cause they pay for the contract which could be like £30 a month

Thread over.

If someone is actually stupid enough to buy it, I can't see the problem. If its way over market price then surely it just wouldn't sell? It's not like he's trying to sell over RRP?

nah the phone is technically free, since your paying for the service of the sim card, if you lose the phone you wont get a replacement, but if you lose the sim card, the provider will block it and give you a new one most likely free of charge, since your paying for that.

don't see how any iphone can then be allowed to be sold as unless the seller provides proof of purchase etc then how can anyone tell if they are "profiteering".
#11
Well obviously his ipod was not free as he had to buy a laptop to get it,
#12
its cost 165 pounds i was selling for 135, but take the mobile phone situation, u pay the contract and maybe get cashback, i paid full price for the ipod touch and in time i will recive cashback.

Hi,

You have our response, this situation has been documented in the past.

You are deemed to be profiteering to the value of the item you are selling. You could have sold the mac for say £50 less than purchase price, the situation is still the same. You benefit as a result of a deal on here, both in terms of the deal and the fs/ft listing.

If you need further clarification relating to your own individual circumstances, then please use the Contact Us facility.
