At that price you would think they would throw in free shipping :)

How does FIVE for $1000 sound to you Larry? At that price they won't last long so get your orders in quick folks. Colors available for modest upcharge as well.

Hard to say no to that, even when shipping makes it expensive  :'(
but if I put in a phone like that, I have to expand the alarm system, get higher insurance etc ;D ;D

Take all 3 for $1800, free shipping!

Who could pass on an offer like that?  Would you be willing to swap the phones for a bridge in Brooklyn?

I have you covered on this too d_s_k.  I guess I am a full service supplier. My sideline is security systems so let you know what alarm parts you want me to send along with the 5 AE 90's and I'll toss it in for another $100 or so.

This may be the same Karen that was posting in here about an AE 90 that had a frequency ringer, and changed it over. 

I'm betting, based on other items in her store that the $1,000 must be a mistake.  Her other phones, while higher in price than we are used to paying are still reasonable retail prices.  This one must be an error.

HAHAHA!!! Oh how I love you guys.

Yes its me, yes my phones are spendy.  But the only reason thats marked at 1000 is because Ive had "Reserved" phones purchased by other people who dont give a crap if its "reserved" for someone else. So I listed the price super high so no one would touch it.  Waiting for a money order that is much........ much less than $1000.

I knew I'd end up in one of these "haha, that idiot" posts someday :)

The term "flood damage" comes to mind.  There was one of these in nice condition on ebay in the USA recently.  I do not recall what the bid amounts were.

I stuck in a generous offer of 4.03, I did think of just 3p, but ebay wouldn't let me offer anything under 99p... :D
