Abt Electronics - coupon codesAre you searching for Abt Electronics coupons or Abt Discount Codes?

Did you know that Abt also sells on Amazon? Their store on Amazon is also called Abt Electronics.

Click here to check out what specials and promotions they offer in their Amazon store.

So why should you purchase from their store on Amazon instead of their own website? Let’s take a look at a few reasons you should consider Amazon:


Feedback

If you have read online reviews, you already know that Abt Electronics is a very reputable seller. Abt Electronics also has a very high reputation on Amazon. Currently, they have received about 25,000 positive feedback ratings. Over the past 12 months, they have had a 97% positive transaction rate.

Price and Shipping

Many web merchants also sell on Amazon. Their prices are usually the same, if not lower on Amazon. Shipping is almost always free too.

Let’s look at an example:

GoPro HERO5 Black Camera

On the abt.com website, you can purchase this GoPro HERO5 Black Camera for $399. Depending on where you live, you can add another $20-30 on top of that for shipping.

Here is the same GoPro camera sold in their Amazon store:


Pricing aside, you are still saving about $20-30 on the shipping. That’s like having a 10% off coupon code right?

On a related side note, you’d be surprised by the amount of sellers/websites that sell their products for less on Amazon. With all the competition on Amazon, stores have to offer up their best price, in order to get the sale. They don’t have to be so generous on their own site, since you only see their price. Often times, a discount code will bring the cost down to the Amazon price.


Returns

If you purchase from abt.com, the return/exchange guarantee period is 30-days from receipt of delivery.

On Amazon, you get the A-to-z Guarantee when purchasing from a 3rd party seller, regardless of their return policy. You are entitled to a 30 day period – from the date you receive the item – to file your claim. It really does take the risk out of purchasing online, and makes you feel secure with your purchase. If you ever have any issues with your order, Amazon’s 24/7 customer service is there to help you.

If you have ever had to file a claim with your credit card company, and waited months for a resolution, you will appreciate Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee.


Product 
Availability

You would think that the products available would be identical in both locations – but they aren’t. They have some products in their Amazon store that are actually not available on their own website.

For example, let’s say you’re looking for a ASUS C302CA-DHM4 12.5-Inch Chromebook Flip. You’ll have to go their Amazon store for it – at the moment, they don’t carry it on the Abt Electronics website.


Ease of Use

Let’s face it – we all use Amazon. We’re familiar with the site, how to use it, how to check out – everything is where it should be, and everything works every time. It’s comfortable. And it’s fast!

On the abt.com website, that’s not exactly the case. If you want to sort by brand, and then by price, it doesn’t work. You’re left sorting through a bunch of results. Different brands, different categories, etc.

And if you try searching for a specific product, sometimes they load, other times they don’t. Sometimes the website doesn’t even load. You’re left wanting much more functionality than they are able to deliver.


Amazon Authority

Feedback History3rd party sellers who sell on Amazon, want to remain in good standing with Amazon. As a seller, you have to meet very strict selling guidelines. You have to maintain a minimum performance rate in order to keep selling on Amazon. On top of that, you also want to receive positive feedback for all transactions.

In other words, you have to ship by the guaranteed ship by date, you have to deliver the item as described, and you have to process timely refunds (if they are initiated). You can’t take any liberties that you might on your own website.

You are pretty much guaranteed a consistently positive purchase every time you order something on Amazon. You can’t say the same about other websites or merchants.

Trade In

Did you know that Amazon will buy your used camera gear (as well as other electronics)? Whether you have an old camera, watch, tv, tablet, etc., you can go to the Amazon Trade-In page, and get an instant quote on your old electronics. You just answer a few questions, like what condition the item is in, what accessories you have, etc., and Amazon will send you a label. You ship it to them, and they will send you an Amazon gift card that you can apply toward your next purchase(s).

When I traded in my old Nikon D3400, I received $275 for it. That was almost half the price of the new camera I was purchasing. I probably could have gotten a few dollars more by selling it on eBay, but I liked the fact that I didn’t have to list it myself, wait for a buyer, deal with questions, etc.


Final Thoughts

Whichever way you decide to make your purchase, you can feel confident buying from Abt Electronics. They are an authorized seller of all the brands that they carry. You will never receive grey market goods from Abt Electronics.

If you are unfamiliar with the term “grey market”, it basically means products that are sold by an unauthorized seller. Grey market can include counterfeits, defects, blemishes, international versions, etc. These products do not carry the original manufacturer’s warranty (even if the seller states that they do). Stay safe – purchase from an authorized dealer!

Abt Electronics has been in business since 1936.  17th Street has had a long selling history – both online, and in retail locations in Illinois. They have also been accredited with the Better Business Bureau since 1976. Currently, they do have an A+ rating.

Marantz Authorized Amazon Dealer List

Marantz - Authorized online sellers

 

Marantz receivers, hi-fi components, AV seperates, and other audio/video products are sold in the United States through authorized dealers selected by Marantz USA. Authorized Marantz Retailers receive training and product knowledge, and are chosen for their ability to represent the brand. Marantz provides a warranty on products sold only by authorized dealers on Amazon.

Not authorized to sellIf you purchase an Marantz product from an unauthorized dealer, you are not entitled to the Marantz warranty coverage, or tech support, even if the seller claims that you are. The Marantz products sold by unauthorized dealers are purchased by the seller on the “grey” market, and are usually the import version of the product. 

An import version basically means that the product was meant for sale in a different country. For example, a Marantz SR7012 AV Receiver that was meant for the European market, being sold in the US. The import version is usually the same exact product, just without the warranty. As described in the Marantz warranty page, their warranties are region specific. In other words….that Marantz receiver that was meant to be sold in Europe, will only be warrantied in Europe. Usually, these products will be labeled as either “import version” or “international version”.

In these instances, your package will usually either be missing a warranty card, or will have a warranty card that does not state “U.S. warranty”. If you card is missing, or if you have a card that says something like “Japanese Warranty” – you have purchased a grey market product.

Purchasing from an authorized dealer guarantees that you not only receive the full Marantz warranty, but also that the product you are purchasing is authentic. The unfortunate truth of buying online is that a few bad apples taint the many good sellers out there. Shopping from an authorized reseller is one way of protecting you from unscrupulous sellers.

Marantz products are made with precise standards and quality controls. Marantz products, even if authentic, might be subject to incorrect handling, seller modification, etc. Authorized sellers adhere to the handling and selling standards set by Marantz, which is another reason to purchase from an authorized dealer.

With that said, the following is a list of Marantz authorized dealers who sell on Amazon. Click on the logo to see more details about the store/seller. (Listed in alphabetical order)

Just keep in mind – If you don’t see a seller listed here, it doesn’t mean that they are selling fake, or non-authentic products. It just means that they are not authorized by Marantz to sell their products, and are not buying the merchandise from Marantz. In the majority of cases, the warranty will not be honored by Marantz. Look out for phrases like “Seller provided warranty”, or “Limited Warranty”, etc. These types of warranties will almost always be for less than 1 year. Often times, they are for just 30 or 90 days, and just protect you from DOA products. (Original Marantz warranties are provided below).

On the other hand, if you are looking at a Marantz audio/video product in one of the stores above, and wondering if the item is fake – purchase with confidence! These stores have been verified with Marantz to be authorized dealers. You are receiving an authentic product, and are entitled to the full original manufacturer’s warranty.

Authorized Dealer

For reference, these are the manufacturer warranty periods for Marantz products:

  • AV Separates – 3 years Parts & Labor
  • Wireless Music Systems – 3 years Parts & Labor
  • AV Receivers – 3 years Parts & Labor
  • Hi-Fi Components – 3 years Parts & Labor
  • Reference Series – 5 years Parts & Labor
  • Accessories – 3 years Parts & Labor

All Marantz warranties only apply to the original end-user only, and are non-transferable. If you purchase a pre-owned product (even if new in the box), you will not be entitled to the original Marantz warranty, even if it was originally sold by an authorized dealer. 

As mentioned above, if you purchase your Marantz product from a non-authorized seller, you are not entitled to tech support, or the warranty coverage. Marantz will repair defective products, at your expense – which includes shipping to and from, parts, labor, etc.

For valid warranty claims, you will need your receipt showing a purchase from an authorized dealer, so remember to save your proof of purchase.

With that said, the following is a list of Onkyo authorized dealers who sell on eBay. Click on the logo to see more details about the store/seller. (Listed in alphabetical order)

Just keep in mind – If you don’t see a seller listed here, it doesn’t mean that they are selling fake, or non-authentic products. It just means that they are not authorized by Onkyo to sell their products, and are not buying the merchandise from Onkyo. In the majority of cases, the warranty will not be honored by Onkyo. Look out for phrases like “Seller provided warranty”, or “Limited Warranty”, etc. These types of warranties will almost always be for less than 1 year. Often times, they are for just 30 or 90 days, and just protect you from DOA products. (Original Onkyo warranties are provided below).

On the other hand, if you are looking at a Onkyo audio/video product in one of the stores above, and wondering if the item is fake – purchase with confidence! These stores have been verified with Onkyo to be authorized dealers. You are receiving an authentic product, and are entitled to the full original manufacturer’s warranty.

Authorized Dealer

For reference, these are the manufacturer warranty periods for Onkyo products:

  • Receivers – 2 years Parts & Labor
  • RZ Series Receivers – 3 years Parts & Labor
  • DVD Players – 2 years Parts & Labor
  • CD Players – 1 year Parts & Labor
  • Amplifiers – 2 years Parts & Labor
  • Home Theater Systems – 2 years Parts & Labor
  • Soundbar Systems – 2 years Parts & Labor
  • Personal Audio Systems – 1 year Parts & Labor

  • Processors – 2 years Parts & Labor
  • Accessories & Speaker Stands – 1 year Parts & Labor
  • TA-RW255 & DX-C390 – 1 year Parts & Labor
  • Refurbished Products – 1 year

All Onkyo warranties only apply to the original end-user only, and are non-transferable. If you purchase a pre-owned product (even if new in the box), you will not be entitled to the original Onkyo warranty, even if it was originally sold by an authorized dealer. 

As mentioned above, if you purchase your Onkyo product from a non-authorized seller, you are not entitled to tech support, or the warranty coverage. Onkyo will repair defective products, at your expense – which includes shipping to and from, parts, labor, etc.

For valid warranty claims, you will need your receipt showing a purchase from an authorized dealer, so remember to save your proof of purchase.

17th Street Photo Coupons and Promo Codes

17photo on amazonAre you searching for 17th Street Photo coupons or 17th Street discount codes?

Did you know that 17th Street Photo also sells on Amazon? Their store on Amazon is called 17Photo, Electronics and Outdoors.

Click here to check out what specials and promotions they offer in their Amazon store.

So why should you purchase from their store on Amazon instead of their own website? Let’s take a look at a few reasons you should consider Amazon:


Feedback

If you have read online reviews, you already know that 17th Street Photo is a very reputable seller. 17Photo also has a very high reputation on Amazon. Currently, they have a 96% positive score, and have received 68,000 positive feedback ratings. Over the past 12 months, they have had a 97% positive transaction rate.

Price and Shipping

Many web merchants also sell on Amazon. Their prices are usually the same, if not lower on Amazon. Shipping is almost always free too.

Let’s look at an example:

Canon PowerShot SX420 IS (Black) with 42x Optical Zoom

On the 17photo.com website, you can purchase this Canon PowerShot SX420 for $229. Depending on where you live, you can add another $10-25 on top of that for shipping.

Here is the same camera sold in their Amazon store:


Pricing aside, you are still saving about $10-25 on the shipping. That’s like having a 10% off coupon code right?

On a related side note, you’d be surprised by the amount of sellers/websites that sell their products for less on Amazon. With all the competition on Amazon, stores have to offer up their best price, in order to get the sale. They don’t have to be so generous on their own site, since you only see their price. Often times, a discount code will bring the cost down to the Amazon price.


Returns

If you purchase from 17photo.com, the return/exchange guarantee period is 7-days from receipt of delivery.

On Amazon, you get the A-to-z Guarantee when purchasing from a 3rd party seller, regardless of their return policy. You are entitled to a 30 day period – from the date you receive the item – to file your claim. It really does take the risk out of purchasing online, and makes you feel secure with your purchase. If you ever have any issues with your order, Amazon’s 24/7 customer service is there to help you.

If you have ever had to file a claim with your credit card company, and waited months for a resolution, you will appreciate Amazon’s A-to-z Guarantee.


Product 
Availability

You would think that the products available would be identical in both locations – but they aren’t. They have some products in their Amazon store that are actually not available on their own website.

For example, let’s say you’re looking for a Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED Vibration Reduction Zoom Lens. You’ll have to go their Amazon store for it – at the moment, they don’t carry it on the 17th Photo website.


Ease of Use

Let’s face it – we all use Amazon. We’re familiar with the site, how to use it, how to check out – everything is where it should be, and everything works every time. It’s comfortable. And it’s fast!

On the 17photo.com website, that’s not exactly the case. If you want to sort by brand, and then by price, it doesn’t work. You’re left sorting through a bunch of results. Different brands, different categories, etc.

And if you try searching for a specific product, sometimes they load, other times they don’t. You’re left wanting much more functionality than they are able to deliver.


Amazon Authority

Feedback History3rd party sellers who sell on Amazon, want to remain in good standing with Amazon. As a seller, you have to meet very strict selling guidelines. You have to maintain a minimum performance rate in order to keep selling on Amazon. On top of that, you also want to receive positive feedback for all transactions.

In other words, you have to ship by the guaranteed ship by date, you have to deliver the item as described, and you have to process timely refunds (if they are initiated). You can’t take any liberties that you might on your own website.

You are pretty much guaranteed a consistently positive purchase every time you order something on Amazon. You can’t say the same about other websites or merchants.

Trade In

Did you know that Amazon will buy your used camera gear (as well as other electronics)? Whether you have an old camera, watch, tv, tablet, etc., you can go to the Amazon Trade-In page, and get an instant quote on your old electronics. You just answer a few questions, like what condition the item is in, what accessories you have, etc., and Amazon will send you a label. You ship it to them, and they will send you an Amazon gift card that you can apply toward your next purchase(s).

When I traded in my old Nikon D3400, I received $275 for it. That was almost half the price of the new camera I was purchasing. I probably could have gotten a few dollars more by selling it on eBay, but I liked the fact that I didn’t have to list it myself, wait for a buyer, deal with questions, etc.


Final Thoughts

Whichever way you decide to make your purchase, you can feel confident buying from 17th Street Photo. They are an authorized seller of all the brands that they carry. You will never receive grey market goods from 17th Street Photo.

If you are unfamiliar with the term “grey market”, it basically means products that are sold by an unauthorized seller. Grey market can include counterfeits, defects, blemishes, international versions, etc. These products do not carry the original manufacturer’s warranty (even if the seller states that they do). Stay safe – purchase from an authorized dealer!

Having been around since 1992, 17th Street has had a long selling history – both online, and in retail locations in New York. They are also listed with the Better Business Bureau. Currently, they do have an A+ rating.

Kicker Authorized Amazon Dealer List

Kicker - Authorized online dealers

Kicker speakers, subwoofers, amplifiers, and other audio products are sold in the United States through authorized dealers selected by Kicker. Authorized Kicker Retailers receive training and product knowledge, and are chosen for their ability to represent the brand. Kicker provides a warranty on products sold only by authorized dealers on Amazon.

Not authorized to sellIf you purchase an Kicker product from an unauthorized dealer, you are not entitled to the Kicker warranty coverage, or tech support, even if the seller claims that you are. The Kicker products sold by unauthorized dealers are purchased by the seller on the “grey” market, and are usually the import version of the product. 

An import version basically means that the product was meant for sale in a different country. For example, a Kicker IQ1000.5 Amplifier that was meant for the European market, being sold in the US. The import version is usually the same exact product, just without the warranty. As described in the Kicker warranty page, their warranties are region specific. In other words….that Kicker IQ amp that was meant to be sold in Europe, will only be warrantied in Europe. Usually, these products will be labeled as either “import version” or “international version”.

In these instances, your package will usually either be missing a warranty card, or will have a warranty card that does not state “U.S. warranty”. If you card is missing, or if you have a card that says something like “Japanese Warranty” – you have purchased a grey market product.

Purchasing from an authorized dealer guarantees that you not only receive the full Kicker warranty, but also that the product you are purchasing is authentic. The unfortunate truth of buying online is that a few bad apples taint the many good sellers out there. Shopping from an authorized reseller is one way of protecting you from unscrupulous sellers.
