Prime Wire & Cable Timer – Item of the Day — 4 Comments

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I noticed this item of the day was for $13.84 on Jack’s link provided. When I searched for this term “Prime Wire & Cable TNOLED02 2-Outlet LED Countdown Pigtail” two listings popped up and showed one for $13.84 and the other for $5.65. I purchased the $5.65 one, right after purchase I refreshed the link and it showed there was only 5 left and the price now was for $22.51 (the other link stilled showed a price of $13.84)! I’ve never seen this kind of automatic inventory pricing before on Amazon…maybe Jack knows how this is handled, but if you watch the links the price might drop back to below $6 for budget-minded individuals. Have a great weekend all! 🙂

    • Steven Harris mentioned this before but many items are not Amazon items on Amazon. You can sell your stuff on Amazon, it is called FBA, fulfilled by Amazon.

      Sellers have items in inventory at Amazon warehouses and Amazon charges them a set amount to handle everything. Over time they get reviews, top listing in Amazon search results, etc. BUT if they sell out, as in go to zero they lose it all and have to start over. So when inventory get low they often jack up the price. They will keep going until when they have one item left the item is so stupid high no one will buy it. They keep it there till they get new inventory in. Keep in mind sometimes inventory is on a ship coming from China, Taiwan, etc.
