How would you handle it?

Yes I would treat them different.
No I would not treat them different.
I would send the item free, but charge for the shipping.
I hate everyone, so everyone pays.

What if a high profile person bought from you?

Let's say a super favorite person that you adored beyond belief, like an actor/actress, political figure, corporate CEO, etc. bought an item from you. Would you just send it to them for free with a "thanks for the memories" note, or would you treat them and charge them just like anyone else?

Awww. Did Pee Wee Herman finally come to pick up that unicycle you're selling?  :040:

I don't think I would give something valuable away for free just because someone was a celebrity. Business is business.

Now if I owned a night club or restaurant, sure, I would comp their tab. A celeb being seen at your establishment is good for business.

This always blows my mind that people want to give rich celebs or high profile people stuff for free. They are the people who need it the least and are more well off than you so why in the world would you give them something for free.

No one, I was just wondering how other people would react in such a situation.
