    Don't look at the price difference but the profit margin. Do you think they will sell at a loss? Think again just like cars offers huge discount.

    Not really, they already made $$$ on this old item. Maybe only last 2 or 3.

    Spring cleaning the store

    As you correctly pointed out, merchants still make money even after a huge discount. I did not buy, just curious of the price discount. It is a 70% reduction from original RM990.

    I think is good to look at things in a simplistic way. If there are things that one need/want/interested and within affordability, just buy... no need to concern/bother how much profit the merchant had made. If the item happens to be on sale, it is a bonus...

    For car, they don't make good margin from unit sale, they make much better margin from parts and service sale. The discount on car price is to increase service and parts sales, and clear old stocks.

    Although nowadays, most OEM are offering free service for 1st 5 years or 1st 100,000km, the FOC item is only for scheduled maintenance consumable like engine oil, transmission oil, etc, wear and tear item like brake pad is not free. Similarly for labour charge, it is only FOC for scheduled maintenance not for labour charge on wear and tear items. They will charge labour fee even for changing wiper blade !!

    The price discount on car sale that public get is normally the standard discount for corporate. What I mean is such discount is a standard offer when they sell to corporate because corporate purchase is normally a bigger volume. For example, the entry level 3 series (318i), list price on BMW brochure is RM205k but a local bank can buy at RM192k as company car for their eligible employee.
