For all you Jedi out there, and even Clone Troopers or Sith, who love to wield lightsabers in battle or just have a lightsaber collection- this article is for you because we’re going to offer up some tips on how to buy a lightsaber online. If you purchase it from an unknown, unrated source and it falls apart within minutes of use, it will be too late for regrets. This is why buying a lightsaber online should not be taken lightly. The following are tips as you browse for lightsabers online:
1. Do Your Research:
Find out if the seller is a legitimate seller and if they are, how long has the company been in business. If it’s a new company, Google them to see if they are also known for buying lightsabers. If they have a good online track record, it’s a good sign that you’re a pretty good seller.
2. Check Out The Return Policy:
Ask about the seller’s return policy, especially if you’re buying a lightsaber for a kid who may handle it with extreme force during the heat of battle. If their policy is inadequate, it’s time to look elsewhere.
3. Check Out The Reviews:
Read the seller’s reviews on eBay and other rating sources to see if there have been any complaints about broken lightsabers or purchases not arriving in time. You also want to read their feedback to find out what kind of person they are, how fast their shipping is, and how many problems with last-minute cancellations will start occurring if they don’t get on top of it.
4. Keep The Warranty In Mind:
If the seller does not provide a warranty, then you might want to reconsider purchasing from them. Chances are that the quality of their saber is lacking and they don’t want to take responsibility for it.
5. Check Into The Shipping:
The shipping cost should be included in the price of the item, but if not, it should be an inexpensive cost to cover. You also need to keep in mind how long it will take you to receive the item. In some cases, it could take up to two months for you to get your lightsaber.
6. Consider The Extras:
If there are any extras, such as a case or the blade color, then it should be included in the price of the item and not tacked on as an extra cost. Try to avoid shops that try to charge you for everything extra on top of the original price.
7. Research The Seller:
Be sure to contact the seller if you have any questions and remember that some shops are international or have a different time zone than you do when buyers are in the United States, therefore get the information to them ahead of time so you don’t have to wait on your saber to arrive. Also, shop around to see if another seller has sold the same item recently or offered a better price.
Buying lightsabers online is not child’s play, but it can be a lot of fun if you do your research to ensure you are getting exactly what you paid for. If you end up getting ripped off, then chances are that no one will take your saber seriously or any kid who is using it will feel bad about the quality and the embarrassment you brought on them by allowing them to use it in their battles.
