A foglight on my precious Altima needs to be changed. I go to Almoayyed to ask for a spare. I told the guy, since I am changing one, let us change the other too.
He goes: 23 Dinars please.
I go: WHAT THE F***? IT'S A FREAKING LIGHTBULB.
Almoayyed rep: Well, Each bulb is BD 11.500 (US$ 30.50)
Now I think, that can't be right! I mean, do you know when Thomas Edison invented the light bulb? It's not new technology man!
So I go to the internet. Compare this with me please:
2 light bulbs @ Almoayyed= BD 23 (US$ 61)
2 light bulbs @ worldpartsexpress.com = BD 4.530 (US$ 11.98 - excluding shipping)
Anyone of you smart boys know how much of a profit margin Almoayyed is taking? Above RRP (which already has a profit margin in it if you don't know).
This, does not compute to me. I am sending this to Almoayyed.com, let us see what they have to say. Vote on the poll to the right about this.
