        cheap in price but not cheap in product Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Hello,

        I see different tile stores selling tile from as low as .69 cent per tile to higher prices per tile. I want to know is there a difference in the tiles if the store is selling it so low as the higher price tiles and is it wise to purchase the low price tiles? I want to buy cheap in price but not cheap in product. Someone help me.Going crazy having to decide whether cheap price is better.

        There are cheap tiles that are made cheaply and there are expensive tiles sold cheaply on specials. Try to research what the regular price would be for the tiles you are looking at. If they always sell at 69 cents then they are likely just cheaply made tiles.

        Also beware of tiles sold at 'seconds' outlets. Often they have color, surface texture or even size differences in the same box.
