    As every company in the world sells items with 0p profit ("Best price")? How is it unethetical and biased to beat a quote, compared to those companies who just charge more in the first place?

    I think you're refering to me

    There are a few reasons why i posted this offer. 1) We're running a MS promo before the price increases in July. 2) I want to make sure schools EES agreements are set up correctly. I've had a few cases where companies claiming to know what they are talking about have messed up EES agreement and schools have been left to pick up the pieces. It can cause so many issues so i prevent it by offering my services. 3) I hope that i've helped Edugeekers out so they know where they can go for help, if they need it. 4) I've forgot

    Not trying to be unethical - just trying to help

    Hi,

    the word you are looking for is 'haggle'.

    Nothing wrong with getting best best price and bashing down resellers as much as possible, isnt that our job?



    Have you also written to B&Q as dont they guarantee to beat any like for like kitchen quote? Whats the difference?

    Oh I get it, you are a friend to Millgate, that explains it. If I send Millgate my EES quote for 520 staff (and I know it is very very very agressive) then he will honour the pricing? as said before I know it will be under cost. If a statment says we will beat any genuine quote, then he can have the business

    I'm a friend of anyone who offers to save us money! More saving - more money to spend on other things!

    I think @Millgate had put on his other thread as long as the quote is genuine and he can confirm it with MS he would beat it *shrug* you would be best asking him.

    As it happens, whether I do or do not use @Millgate, i'd always be happy to support people who are trying to do their best by the Edugeek community
