Daily price changes I bought a toy, Magna Tiles, a few weeks ago for $120. I went to buy another set yesterday. The price was $189. Today the price is $212. Have you seen these kinds of price changes in other departments? What's going on Amazon?
Magnatiles had some flooding at their plant and production has just been gearing back up with products returning to stores. However, during the "shortage" there was a lot of gouging going on with retailers charging many times the normal price. Normal cost for 100 magna tiles is $120. Before the plant problems I bought them at $110, but haven't seen that price since. If you look around you should be able to find an online source at $120/100 tiles. (I'm about to purchase two sets at that price plus $10 shipping).
Prices higher than $120 indicate a retailer that is taking advantage of the temporary low stock to make a larger profit.
Same thing here. They were even cheaper than $120 not so long ago. I end up buying them from another on-line retailer for ~$114.00 No point in paying the current price when we know what these things really cost.
