Price Gouging?

Post by Judy K »

Just a fair warning post:

When shopping for some items (essentials like hand soap and alcohol) on Amazon beware of the prices. As someone who, unfortunately, has a difficult time shopping (bad knees) I depend too much on online shopping. Checked out Amazon's prices for Softsoap last week because my nephew that does most of our shopping usually forgets it. Wish I had thought to do a screen shoot -- 50 oz refill for $59 & change ... not 2 or more bottles. One single bottle. That price made me decide to check out Walmart.com. Same size bottle, same brand was available for $3.94. I bought 4.

Someone in amazonland might have heard my grumbling. A wide variation of prices were found on my next day search from $18, $38, $41 ... but the $59 bottle is missing or sold out. Granted not all the vendors are the company in question, but the $59 bottle was all on them. Probably why it disappeared.

My grump for the day ....

Hope everyone is doing well!

Yes, the prices on Amazon can be "outstanding." Think it's always good to check around. (Amazon is likely hoping you won't check elsewhere.)

Thanks for the warning / reminder.
