Anyone up for a trade? I just bought an iPad and want to go to coachella instead. The iPad is unopened. I waited in line for 2 hours -_-

I payed $665 for it (tax included). So trading for 2 tickets is a fair trade.

Message me if you're down. :)

Thanks in advance.

Just curious, why did you hang onto it for a couple weeks without opening it?

Haha I wish I had it for a couple. I actually just bought it yesterday. It's still sold out everywhere, that's why I stood in line for 2 hours.

maybe for one ticket...not 2...they are selling for $500 plus on ebay now....and by Saturday they'll be going for $600-$700+

Yeah I guess... I came to the forum because I thought there would be people here that don't want to make money off tickets, a la scalpers. I guess I will just return the iPad.

Thanks.

I just don't want to shell out $600 for Beardyman!

no, don't give up. and don't listen to baily. there may be some extra $$ needed for shipping, but don't do it for just one.

Thanks for the tip, man. [B]I WON'T GIVE UP![B] Cool icon BTW thewoodenman. I love Ratatat! I'm just hoping I can make this trade before next week because I think the return policy is for only 7 days.

I keep forgetting to mention that I'm from LA.

Thanks again guys.

Even if you don't make the 7 day deadline, you should be able to flip it for what you paid. Especially if they're sold out everywhere

Scalp the iPad on some iPad forum.

Yeah, that's a good idea but I want to trade it for tickets.

Problem is he knows the ipad doesn't cost what 2 coachella tickets cost...

he's never going to get it....people aren't that dumb....they are dumb...but not that dumb.

Problem is that if you want an iPad 2, you can get one for face value with less than 2 hours of effort by either calling around or hanging out at Apple Stores when they get a shipment in. And if you are willing to wait 3-4 weeks, you can order one from the apple store for face value in the matter of a couple minutes.

If you want Coachella tickets, it's a little harder than that at this point.

Very true. I mean I would gladly pay $600 for 2 tickets but the problem is people are very greedy and want to make money off of everything.

That's less than face value for the tickets that were sold at the end.

Problem is that the OP doesn't seem to understand what money is or how it works.

Well I paid $660 with tax included for the iPad. Weren't coachella tickets $280 and $330 after tax and fees?

OP, there may be pepole in the world who happen to have extra Coachella tix and ALSO want an iPad, BUT, there even more people in the world who happen to have extra Coechella tix and want cash. I would convert your iPad back to cash and open yourself up to more sellers.

You had plenty of time to "gladly pay $600" just like everyone else and the evil scalpers so why didn't you?. Oh, and the forced shuttle pass that some people had to buy was over 370 after taxes and fees, so for many you're not really even in the face value ball park anyway.

Agreed...sell your ipad on ebay and use the cash to get tickets...you'll be close but you'll still have to add money to get the 2nd ticket. The longer you wait the higher the price.

If I was in your shoes I'd do a one day sell on the iPad on ebay and see what you can get...obviously have a min. bid so you don't lose out completely.
Use that money and TRY to get two tickets...chances are you'll still be a few hundred short.

Your other problem is do you have a place to stay + transportation....if not you are wasting your time.

This isn't the place where you can trade a thumb tack for a candle then trade that candle for a set of books....that you trade for a telescope...

Aremar2k2, count your blessings that you have $600 in disposable income by returning your iPad and start shopping for your passes. Be resourceful.

Give this thread up, it ain't getting any better.

First off, I love the Office reference. Second, yes, I have a place to stay, my friend has a house there.

Mannnn $350 a ticket would be a steal. I think the longer I wait the better deals I'll get. Scampers tend to get desperate on the day of the show.

Close this thread Mods.
