GoPros on Kijiji

I am shopping around for a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. I am looking around on kijiji and there are several ads that sell brand new/sealed/never opened units below the store value. Best Buy sells it for 499.99+Tax. These guys are selling it below the market value. Whats the deal with these?

Same seller has a ton of other things listed: http://www.kijiji.ca/o-posters-other-ads/51506150

The store mentioned in the ad seems to be Wireless Depot, based on the address and seeing the phone number on the sign in Google Street View: https://www.google.ca/maps/@43.749741,- ... e0!6m1!1e1

You could probably just go into the store and see it before you buy.

Even if I see the product in person, I dont know what to look for. This seller has two GoPros on sale for different prices. 420 vs 400. Weird.
I guess, its better buying it at the store with the credit card. If it turns out to be fake, I can initiate a chargeback.

One of the sellers told me that they work for Sport Check, they get a discount and resell for profit. Can anyone confirm if Sport Check employees get such a hefty discount on GoPros. Thanks

Watch out though - many manufacturers provide warranty coverage only for original purchaser, so if you're a secondary buyer you have no coverage. Get a copy of the full warranty and read it carefully to find out in this case.

I wouldn't worry too much about the price. People get discounts/coupons/deals all the time.

Even just signing up for sportschek email will give you a 10% discount. That's $50 off.

I had a go pro fraudulently charged to my CC a couple of weeks ago. I bet it's on Kijiji right now if not sold already.

Sport Chek Team Assist was 20%. If the employee stacked it with a Friends and Family sale or something (25%), then it's $300+tax.

Ask for receipt in order to ensure warranty is intact.
