Fingerhut is a scam they sell the ipod nano for $249.99 when everyone else sells for $149.99. I sent and email and got no response for a week so I called. They could not give me a reason why they sell higher and acted like a asked a hard question, the first lady trans. me to her supervisor because she did not know what to say. The supervisor said that they sell the same as other customer I told her no you sell for $100, asked if she can check if they mismarked she said that was the price.. I closed my acct. right away. They seem to over charge for items and people don't even know if they don't compare with other websites.

    They over sell things because they offer payment plans

    The entire point of these catalog vendors is to let people make impulse buys when they are on the toilet. Its not a scam to charge more money, unless they are making claims as to the prices of other retailers. In this age, its easy enough to just go online and check the price for anything, fingerhut and similar vendors rely on a shrinking customer base of people who are too lazy do actually do some research on products or who are strapped for time and need some kind of gift shipped right away. The catalogs are fun to zip through for ideas on what to buy, but theres no way im paying those ridiculous prices for products that are commonly available

    Fingerhut does not claim to offer the lowest prices. Fingerhut claims to offer credit to most people who can get credit any other way. If you are in a position to shop elsewhere you should.
