So I have a little conundrum. My Xbox headset broke and I need a new one so I can talk to friends in California. Now I have a choice to make and the Mrs. said I am a huge waffler.
I checked on Amazon and found one for about $10 plus shipping. Not too bad.
I also have $32 store credit on my Gamestop card, but the same headset costs $20 at Gamestop.
What should I do? On one hand, I can support a local business by using my store credit and I wouldn’t have any cash outlay. Then again, Amazon has the cheaper price, but not much cheaper once you add shipping. I guess I could just put it in the cart and bundle it with some other purchase down the line to save on shipping.
I’m leaning toward Amazon right now because cheaper is cheaper. I have had the store credit for about a year, but I know I will use it sooner or later. Hmm… decisions, decisions.
Have you had to make this kind of decision? I know this is small, but what if it was a bigger amount like $100? If it was $100 and I have store credit or gift card, I would definitely use that instead of paying. I’d rather have $100 in my pocket.
What about you? What would you do in this situation?
Well, I’ll tell you what I did. I waffled for a few weeks and then I found my cordless phone headset! It worked with the Xbox and I didn’t have to buy anything. See, waffling is good when it comes to spending money.
