Yeah, the worst thing you can do is to buy from them.

How does best buy fight against bot? And details.



They require you to pick it up in-store.

I will pay it if the scalped price is reasonable.



If the price was reasonable, they wouldn't be scalping.

As long as there is a market for things like this, there isn't much we can do.




eBay and similar sites could shut down 3rd party sales like during the pandemic but I don't know how realistic that would be.

wow the amount of people who used this thread to fluff up their post count to reach elite.
 
This thread should have been locked after the first page.  How the heck did it get to 4 pages of everyone saying the exact same thing...




Really, you think so?

I'd just say bot to get your card and be done with it. I honestly would if I had the slightest clue how to.

This.
 
I think the folks who buy the cards at these prices are mostly miners looking to maximize profit before the next cut. Or gamers with a ton of disposable income and no qualms in being scammed out of their money and rewarding scalpers.

Yea, it is super frustrating. Even the consoles are struggling still.

 The best way to combat scalping is the retailers. They should set about ways to discourage bots. Of course many retailers only see profits as their bottom line and will sell at any price.

The issue is they get money either way so they have less incentive. There really should be gamers coalitions which advocate for gamer-retailer cooperation..

Best thing is to just not buy I guess. But that is a lose-lose situation

best way to escape scalpers is to have nvidia and AMD stop pulling stupid useless products out of their asses, and focus their yields on the products thats already selling well in mass quantity

I suppose the best way is to just enter the Queues and wait, I am glad to have found out about them, now it just requires a little bit of patience and I should be good to go.
