I come here for limited time pricing deals on items to purchase, not ill-informed opinion posts that have no factual backing.

#11 dont buy a new house. They are slapped together by low skilled illegals & they start having major issues only a few years down the road. Go to ANY new homesite if you dont believe me...

Yes, existing timeshares are sold on secondary markets, as in, a timeshare original owner now wants to sell. However based on my limited personal experience the good used ones are more expensive than they were when new.

I also forgot to add that you dont pay sticker or very rarely. So when you see the original price was 40k...they may of only paid 35K. Now with you buying it 2 years later for 29K you think you just saved 11K and are some shopping hero...when in reality you paid only 6k less....but the car has 20,000 miles on it now, wear, less warranty etc....you are at a wash as it never sold for 40k

I dont know why I am bothering to hop in this. If you do the math a new car is sometimes CHEAPER than a used car. Yes...impossible right? No.... if you factor in the actual USE of the used car and back out that value per mile even at just .25 a mile vs the govt rate you will find you are right back to square 1. The only reason it appears cheaper is because its had use. Then you factor in having the warranty coverage for a full 3 years or 36k on most and you also have to discount about another 1 to 2k. Less alone tires, brakes etc also that have now 20 to 35k miles on them. Its all about use. Then if thats not convincing enough for you look at your total cost. New you can snag 0% to 2% on a loan. Buy same car with 20K miles on it and you pay double that for financing. Work that back into your total cost and poof..your probably paying more than new or back to break even.

Search Ebay for timeshares. They're basically free.

I don't agree with the kids toys, outright dangerous to my childs health. Everything else on the list is spot on.....and a great post by the way its good to see these once in a while to get some feedback....other than the asses that go out of their way just to say 'why is this posted?. Thanks Spoofee!

@Guest, yes there is a secondary market for timeshares where they sell for fifty cents on the dollar compared to new. There is a huge markup on new timeshares and many are underutilized and get unloaded at huge discounts. New timeshares are sold under high pressure tactics to people that don't make the best decisions under pressure.

There are some exceptions, if a new I car is discounted a lot, why buy used? If you're only saving a couple thousand, get a factory warranty, and better financing, plus peace of mind. Buying a new car is better, example: 2015 prius, $3000 cash back, 0% APR.

It's not about whether buying a new car is an investment or not. It's clearly not, but the article is suggesting you can save money by letting that first buyer (in this case you) take the biggest hit. You can buy used and get the same warranty as new if you plan it wel. But if you like a new car and willing to pay then it's a win win for you.

Purringlady obviously doesn't watch TV commercials or shop around for car insurance enough. Who can miss the ads for Liberty Mutual that detail how they DO cover the full value if you wreck a 'new' car. To say they don't is either old information, or just the policy you have chosen.
Also, buying a previously leased car may be WORSE than buying a normal, one-owner car, because if someone leases a car, it's like renting one for 2-3 years... And you KNOW how rental cars are abused! Contrast that with someone who has owned a car, who is more likely to care for it, since they know repairs are going to be out of their own pocket, and they will keep it in good condition to try to get the highest price possible when ready to sell.

The price differential between slightly used and new cars are minimal. There really isn't much benefit unless you're looking at a really old car ( 7-10 yrs).
craigminah (L6 Recruit) - 1 year ago
This is ridiculous. I only buy new cars and don't think of them as an investment so I don't care how much it 'depreciates once driven off the lot.' I have peace of mind, a warranty, an undriven/unabused vehicle, a clean car, etc. It is a tool to do what I need it to do. Unless buying a classic car they are not investments so why think of them that way?

Deal hunters mostly pay less for brand new items than used items. Otherwise you are NOT real deal hunters then.
pacaveli420 (L7 Private) - 4 years ago
A lot of these are dependent on the situation. If you shop for deals, a lot of times new things are better.
Buying a scratched up bluray to save $5 is obviously not the best way to go about it.
New things can often be returned. Used, not usually.
New things carry warranties which are often only valid for the original purchaser.

My first financial mistake, as a young adult, was buying my 1st car brand new. Now, of course, I've learned that as soon as you drive that new car off the dealer's lot, it can depreciate by as much as 30%. I'm sure everyone has heard that, if you were to get into an accident immediately after leaving their lot, the insurance company would only reimburse you the depreciated cost of your "new" car. We only buy used vehicles. I especially love purchasing previously leased cars. I mean really... who pays good money just to "rent" a car for 3 or 4 years and then have to return it. Thus leaving you to start all over again. It leaves you with no hard asset. It's like renting a house. You pay your monthly rent, but you are left with no equity in the home.

There are pros and cons to both new and used vehicles. Your example simply shows purchase price. But there are other factors:
Quote: original post by Consumer Reports
While purchase price is a natural focus, don't look solely at the cost to buy, but how much the vehicle will cost to own over time. Factors such as depreciation, insurance, financing, fuel costs, and other operating expenses can quickly add up through the years and may make that deal not look so good after all.

1. How does a "Guest" post anyway? I don't even see that option.
2. Secondly, why is a guest quite obviously conversing with themselves?
Spoofee (Spoofee.com!) - 4 years ago
'With the used car market the way it has been for the last couple years, I would say cars can definitely be an exception. When a 2 year old used car with 30K miles is $16,000, and dealers are selling new of the same model for $17,000...'

@Guest, which car is this?

I actually bought a brand new Honda Civic a while back, but only because I was able to trade my 500$ minivan in for 4500$ (cash for clunkers) and get almost 1500 discount from the dealer. Making it so that out of pocket I have paid less brand new then the car is worth when it is 4 years old.

No way can i go thru and read 55 replies but for most software items, you cant legally buy it used at any rate...

and if you do, you could be buying a disc(s) that have been hacked by someone and set up to give you a virus. BAD idea
