Have you ever noticed that when you look at a product on Amazon that you’d like to buy, noted the price, but don’t want to buy right then instead wanted to think about it for a few days? Then the next time you look and are ready to buy the price is higher! I find this to be common. Case in point is the pasta machine I just purchased.
- The pasta machine when the first time I looked was $69.00
- I went back to buy a week later and it was $70.00
- I went back another week later and it was $73.00
- Also, the machine is offered in seven different colors. I really wanted the Candy Red but the price for a colored unit over the polished stainless unit was at Amazon and multiple other sellers a $129.00, that’s just not going to happen for me!
I finally decided to order the polished stainless machine, but when I went to order it surprisingly it was back to $69.00. I also noticed they now offer the choice of colors for the same $69.00 (not $129.00)! So I have the Candy Red one on its way for $69.00 and free shipping! Should be here Thursday. Yippee!
Amazon in case you didn’t notice, saves your searches and to me appears to adjust the price higher to make a few more dollars and hustle you into buying at the new higher price! It also looks to me that Amazon (and WalMart) will soon put the brick and mortar stores out of business as they are growing very rapidly leaving us no other choice but to buy from these giants. We will soon have no choice and have to shop much smarter (other places or sources) to get the best honest prices.
