Default Identify 3rd party?!!

I am trying to identify what 3rd party is selling this HP officejet pro premier printer at the lowest price of $249. When I click "buy it now" I link to Amazon.com which shows me their lowest price (which is higher). Is there some way to just link to the 3rd party site the $249 price is coming from? Am I missing the obvious?

Thanks from a newbie for any clarification.

Hi davidette,

We don't link directly to specific offers because Amazon returns an error page if the offer no longer exists, rather than displaying the regular product detail page. So to avoid that confusion, we link directly to the product detail page and the user must then view the Offers listing page to see those.

For example, on your HP printer page, it says this:

Quote:
In Stock.
Ships from and sold by Amazon.com.
Want it delivered Tuesday, September 14? Order it in the next 5 hours and 52 minutes, and choose One-Day Shipping at checkout. Details
35 new
If you click the "35 new" link, you will see all of the offers (including the $249 price.) The problem with third party offers is that good deals get snapped up quickly, so this information is only valid until someone buys the printer for that price (assuming only 1 item is available.)

I hope this answers your question!
