Upload & Sell: Off

On a 7D last year they left a phone message that the order was on hold. When I called in the guy said it was extremely important that I buy an extended warranty because Canon's wasn't any good. I was annoyed since out of hundreds of other ebay purchases, no one ever tried a rip-off trick like that on me. The camera shipped and was new with a USA warranty.
They sell with razor thin margins so to make money they must push add-ons and accessories. This sales tactic has been standard operation procedure for Brooklyn photo dealers for decades. I've gotten such a phone call or email notice a hundred times. Nothing new or surprising here. If you find such sales tactics offensive, you can pay a little higher margin to B&H or Amazon and lose the pitch.
