depending on the situation with the girl, might just be easier!
regardless there's no reason to be concerned either way, and there's not much to learn. This is the only time in my life you'll ever hear me say that credit cards are an amazing wonderful thing.
If you're a merchant, they blow, if you're a consumer, they're irreplaceable. I've NEVER had problems with disputing charges.
If you want to save a few bucks and can live a few months without the cash, go ahead and go with the less famous dealers. I, personally, have never had a downside other than being a few months without cash and a small hassle. If you need a 100% working thing immediately, and don't want to deal with the hassle, pay a few more bucks and go with a big dealer. It's all a matter of priorities.
