I completely agree.IntlSet said:I definitely don't think so.
I always do my research before making a big purchase, whether its a car or a piece of jewelry. I don't believe Tiffany jewelry, for example, is justified in its markup if you're just looking for a quality diamond solitaire. That you can find a much better deal on for what amounts to the same thing.
I think you get what you pay for in terms of status... you can find equally a well-made wallet, but you can't say its LV. You can get a beautiful diamond engagement ring but you can't say its Tiffanys.
I think its absolutely possible to get an excellent used car, a great deal on a house, a great piece of art or an antique without having to pay through the nose unnecessarily.
Gosh, don't I know it. My folks have a Sub Zero and they had to wait two weeks for a guy from an hour away come fix it because nobody in our area seemed to know how! Annoying.amanda said:i
that being said, a more expensive appliance isn't always more reliable, it just has more features. sub-zero is one of the most expensive refirigerator brands out there, but they are notoriously unreliable. they do have a bunch of features, though.
i've heard stuff like this more than once, i think that's so completely unacceptable! i always recommend kitchenaid for my high-end customers because of it.IntlSet said:Gosh, don't I know it.
