Why does Amazon have to match the price at Kroger? If price is that important to you, buy the one at Kroger.

You're comparing apples and oranges.

The Artist says:
Why? Amazon never promised to price match books (or anything else other than certain TVs). Why should they lose money because other retailers are trying to get rid of their stock to make room in the warehouse/storeroom?

Lots of businesses have loss leaders to pull you into the store - does Krogers have $1.99 Narnia books, like Amazon did all day yesterday?

So, will you be back to complain if Amazon matches it?

The Artist says:
Then why are you posting this, especially in the Kindle forum? Did you expect the e-book version price to be lowered because some supermarket is selling a printed book?

I bought that book at the Goodwill for 75cents. I wonder why Amazon won't price match it.

No, you're comparing an ebook (apples) to a paperback book (oranges).

J. Donahue says:
I bought that book at Joe's Hookah and Used Books for 50 cents.

Wait, it might have been Joe's Used Books and Hookahs.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 11, 2013 4:27:56 PM PDT
Or perhaps it was the hookah you purchased for 50 cents?

J. Donahue says:
Or maybe I ran into FiftyCent on the way out of the Hookah store...

Plausible...

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 11, 2013 4:29:48 PM PDT
Well, it was probably some hookah-smoking character...

"You're comparing apples and oranges."

No, just whining. I'm sure if Amazon knew it was her they would have sent her the book for free. Being the center of the universe does have its perks.

Then you asked "should they not" because, why, exactly?

The Artist says:
It's a supermarket, is it not? There are lots of things other than books to buy there. Amazon isn't going to price match anything else, either!
