“Watch” This, Jewelry Stores!
(Why you should buy your timepiece online)
Somewhere, a man is walking into a jewelry store. Assuming ________ Jewelers is open, that is. I suppose it depends on the operating hours at the mall or strip shopping center in which said jeweler is located. So anyway, a gentleman is walking into a jeweler…
After working for years, or otherwise coming into a fair amount of money, this shopper is looking for a watch. Not just any watch, but a timepiece that will serve as a reward for such hard work, or just a reminder that some things in life are worth paying a luxury price for, a symbol of the good life, perhaps.
Said shopper will walk in and be immediately accosted by an attractive young lady in a skirt and ruffled blouse, who will chirp “Good morning/afternoon/evening! Can I help you find something special?” Surrounded by this pretty girl, his ears filled with the sound of violins from the store’s sound system, the shopper chooses a model described as “perfect for you” by the lovely sales lady, which, luckily for him, is “on sale” on this particular day.
They all live happily ever after. Until, one day, our shopper friend runs into an old pal, and realizes that they are wearing the same watch. Much to our tragic hero’s surprise, this pal divulges that he purchased his watch at Amazon, and for a significant percentage less than the protagonist of this story. Our hero is crestfallen.
Yes folks, you’ll pay more for your luxury watch at the jewelry store, often considerably more. And Amazon, our favorite retailer can save you a big chunk of your money, whether was “hard-earned” or “found money.” Their prices are sometimes hundreds, occasionally even thousands less than not only jewelry stores, but other online only merchants as well.
Look folks, we’re not suggesting that there’s anything wrong with jewelry stores. Some folks love the attention they receive when shopping for a watch at a jewelry store, and don’t mind paying more (gasp!) to be treated like a long lost friend in a sparkly environment filled with almost unbelievable mirth. But if, like us you are not among them, take a look at how much you can save by getting yours at Amazon. Oh, and let’s not forget Amazon’s legendary customer service while we’re at it.
And Amazon isn’t alone in featuring great watches at better than the jewelry store prices.
Here’s a look at a just a few watches, all high-quality, and with significant “wow factor” built-in, that are available at Amazon and a few other great sites, for less than we can find them anywhere else. We’ve compared the best price we found on the web with the lowest price at Google Shopping to give you an idea of how much you can save by snagging your new watch online.
