I was doing some comparison shopping and wanted to know if anyone has dealt with some of the larger eBay hearing aid sellers.
As a matter of comparison, Hearing Planet lists the price for ONE Siemens Pure 700 with 2 yr warranty at $2799. There’s an eBay seller (with over 14000 positive feedback) selling TWO of the same with tek unit (new with 4 year warranty) for $3399.
That’s more than $2400 difference in price. I’m 65 years old and didn’t just fall off a turnip truck so I’m instantly suspicious. On the other hand, I’ve read that there’s a huge mark up on hearing aids and have read the consumer reports article that a lot of people have gotten better prices from various vendors by “quibbling” over prices.
Does anyone have experience with eBay sellers and/or experience haggling over prices?
