Redemption update (or the old bait and switch)

Was going to order a Micro Diamond for Mrs. Cuca for Christmas but Kimber has none in stock and rumor is there not going to make any more. I've seen them on the web but I don't buy things on the web using my card I'm a little nervous about my card number floating around in cyberspace-you might say. Any how my LGS will be receiving her new Micro CDP LG this week.

It's your card, so it's your call, obviously. I completely understand.

I'll just say I've never had a problem purchasing anything online. Not even some of my big $$ Kimbers. My card protects me against fraud. I think most do.

But, hey, if you don't want to give her a 13 oz diamond for Christmas ...

Well, and then there's a thing about buying locally from a small shop. My guy usually gives me the best price anywhere and he takes trades.

You could have used a USPS money order.

That's what I use, most sellers prefer postal money order and many charge an additional 3-5% if you use a credit card.

Nice gift--as long as you didn't get it engraved "Homer" and break it in for her before Christmas.

About the credit card. Who gives a fudge? It's between the credit card company and the thief. If someone steals the number, the issuer will just send you another card. No biggie, they do it thousands of times a day. You're more likely to have your number stolen from a brick-and-mortar store's hacked database. So if you want maximum protection, cancel your accounts with Home Depot, Penny's, and Adult Friend Finder.
