Default Keep My Stiletto?

I wasn't planning to buy a Stiletto this soon, thinking the prices were out of my league right now. But stumbled onto one on a Walmart Clearance table for $176. Package never opened. No one could tell me why it was there. They didn't have any left.

Now I'm wondering if I even need one. I wish I didn't already have the sportster in the van, or the boom box. Would love to incorporate with the stiletto equipment.

Any advice? or Insight?

If its still there (at Wal-mart), you could always buy the Stiletto and either sell it to someone or sell your sportster and make a profit....either way, you can't go wrong.

How does a retail store let this go so cheap? Wouldn't sirius have some kind of price structure for this?
Something doesn't add up here...

You sure it's the 100 not the 10?

I believe walmart only is allowed to sell the 10. I went to walmart.com and they are selling the 10 for 176.74 ( 246.74 less 70 rebate ) and shipping was 97 cents.

I knew walmart was cheap but wow that's a good deal...I've not seen them locally in fact all the wm's I know only sell the #3 line of recievers. I have not looked online.

You may be right. I'm at work..I will check when I get home. But just clicked on the Walmart logo from the Sirius website. They do have both the 10 and the 100. Is the 100 always black? Mine is white..which means I probably have the 10. Am I going to regret keeping the 10?

I'll search this site to see what folks are saying about it. Haven't had time to think much more about it.

The S100 is only sold on the web site (Walmart.Com). If you got it in the store, you got the S10. Remember the S10 has the 10 hours of record time no individual recording of songs (LOVE) no wifi and no MP3 playback. But it does include song/artist seek. $176.00 is still a good deal even for the S10.

There are folks on the forum that had no interest in the wifi or needed more space than 10 hours worth, so for them saving the extra money and yet giving them on the go portability made it worth it. You'll have to decide for yourself.
