    Where is the best place online to buy a pin NIB that also delivers? I'm looking for a company with the lowest prices. There are alot of companies that sell pins, I'm just trying to cut through the red tape and find the one with the lowest prices including shipping.

    Do not buy a NIB game online, call around to various distributors and ask for a quote to have the game shipped directly to you. That's how most distributors operate. (And you are going to get the best price this way as well)

    There are many listed in this thread:

    Just google the names listed in the thread if there isn't contact info provided. Then call them up and get a quote. Good luck!

    Edit: I usually get three quotes before I choose who to go with. Ive bought from cointaker and JJ at gameexchange, but most of those listed will be easy to deal with regardless of who you buy from.

    I would also rec a PM to buddy "Doughslingers". I'm pretty sure you'd still be in his delivery area...he also does the set up too. On top of that, Buddy is simply an outstanding guy. I bought my first pin from him and would never hesitate to use him again.

    Many places give discount for cash or money wire over credit card.

    Get the list off the Stern website and call each one. They can not quote lower than retail prices through email or post online. Call. List. Decide. Order.

    What game - ST!

    Quoted from ek77:

    In other words, they charge an additional 3% if you use a credit card. I think it's worth it in case something goes wrong with the transaction.

    Sense you are in the Charleston area I would check out Charleston Gamerooms. I have dealt with David in the past, and he is a great guy.

    <Language Nerd>No. It might violate their merchant agreement, but it's nothing to do with the law.</LanguageNerd>

    I went with a local retailer when I bought my ST earlier this year. Saved a little bit because I paid with cash but did have to pay a bunch in taxes. I rather pay a little extra and make sure the game is perfect then risk damage in shipping. My game had a big hole in the box. If it was shipped that way I would of freaked out but the game itself was fine. The retailer unboxed it in front of me and we both made sure everything was perfect in cosmetics and gameplay.

    How much can you save off retail? Nobody seems to put out any real numbers. My understanding is that the profit margins are pretty slim on Sterns so not a whole lot of wiggle room.
