I wonder why the prices for products on Amazon change so much.

    I wanted to buy a humidifier yesterday and the price was like $95 with free shipping. 5 minutes later it was $99.99 and shipping was like $10. Then a few minutes later it was $99 even. I got annoyed and said fuck it, I'm going for a hike.

    Then today I looked to see what the price was and it was $66.09 with free shipping so I bought it.
    The fuck is up with that? :scratch:

    Oh, now I just checked it again and it's $109.99 with free shipping. :GL:

    I experienced the same shit when I bought my tv. An hour after I ordered it, the price dropped $40 so I canceled the original order and re-ordered it. Fuck if I know why though :dontknow:

    I've had that happen as well. The price seems to go up. I wondered if they have some kind of tracking that tells them what you are looking at and if you come back they figure you really want it.

    BF, you should buy and sell humidifiers. It will be like the Amazon commodities market.

    LOL @ the people in that Amazon price changing thread talking about how much it is going to hurt Amazon and people will stop shopping there.
