Did anyone else know that Sears.com had a marketplace similar to Amazon.com where independent merchants can list and sell items? I certainly didn’t, until I came across this listing for our replacement pot handle there.
We’ve talked about this phenomenon before, where people are taking our Amazon.com listings and listing the parts on eBay and independent sites. What happens is that, when you place an order for one of the parts there, they simply activate a purchase on Amazon.com and have it shipped to you. But you are paying a premium over what you can buy it for on Amazon.com, as that is how these resellers are making money, and you are one link removed from us should there be an issue with the order; there is no guarantee that these resellers will field your call like we do, if there is a problem.
