Seriously WTF Is Wrong With People

Recommended Posts

It's quite normal. When Amazon sellers don't have items in stock it is easier for them to bump the price up to an artificial level to prevent people making orders that they cannot satisfy than it is to remove the items from sale and then add them again later. It's specifically common with items that have a relatively low sales rate, small stocks and sporadic restocks. The "only 10 left in stock" is probably not accurate.

It's just Amazon being Amazon.

 

Since Australia moved to forcing Amazon.com.au to exist (so the taxman can their 10% cut), they've been price gouging and being just plain stupid all over. A book listed at 23USD and readily available was 300+AUD in price, with only 1 in stock.

We have a saying here: Spitting the dummy.

That's what Amazon have done. They got upset and spat the dummy. 

 

Edit: Go with your favourite store and support them.

Yes, this. I understand they avoid re listing fees this way.  Happens a lot
