So many deals get posted for DVDs, CDs and Games, but in many cases there is hardly any difference between the price of the deal and the 'next cheapest' available. Personally, if I post a DVD deal, I'll only usually post it if there is a significant difference between the prices - at least around 40%. Basically, if the item is within the same sort of price range almost everywhere (e.g. I see something at £4.99 at Retailer A, but it's also between £5 and £7 at 13 other retailers) then I just don't bother. It's meant to be around that price, the distributors are selling it to retailers at the same price, it's a budget release.
All these 43p cheaper here, £1.20 difference there...they just lie around the forum waiting to die. It's a car boot sale of DVDs and games which nobody is really interested in sometimes. If people are savvy enough to post a popular film, then it will get heat whether it's £10 or 1p different from anywhere else, but that's not (supposedly) what deals are about.
So my question is, do you think there should be a threshold of price difference to justify a deal being posted? Say, a minimum of 30% difference between the deal price and the next cheapest? Lord knows how you would enforce it, but it would surely go some way to reducing the number of not-really-that-hot deals which come up.
I don't expect anything to come of this, just wondered what people thought. :)
