3.0 out of 5 stars Cool, but not as great as I expected., December 13, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Betsey Johnson Women's 9 Pack Tic Tac Toe-Tally Awesome Crews Gift Box (Apparel)
I just got these yesterday. They are cute and funky. The gift box they came in is cool. The quality is mediocre. They aren't very thick. When I ordered them they were four dollars a pair. I was floored to see that the same socks are selling for nearly TWICE what they were two days ago. I paid 36 bucks which I thought was pretty expensive but i thought they were cool, and I like Betsey things. I WOULD NOT pay the 60 dollars they are asking for them now. Almost 7 dollars for each pair??? Seriously? Nothing like getting greedy before Xmas. The stitching of the patterns/designs are loosely stitched on the inside and I am thinking they won't hold up all that great due to toe nails snagging on the inside stitching. I have owned other Betsey Johnson products and the workmanship has always been nice, but not so much with these socks. I am seriously wavering on them being two stars. The other five star review is not an Amazon verified purchase, and it was written by a guy "Bob", who supposedly wore these for SWAT missions? Lol! Really? I know a lot of cops and if a man wore these socks during missions he would never hear the end of it. The socks are not especially soft. Like I said mediocre, and now that they are 60 bucks instead of 36, I would skip these...unless you're a millionaire. They go ahead and get them.

I have seen this happen to many of the items in amazon that are listed in their lightning deals. The price is hiked up and then offered at 40-50% discount, which comes out to the same cost it was available couple of days back ..

Just check the seven pair of Betsy Johnson which cost just $24 now .. so for just 2 more pairs, you have to pay additional $35?

I saw this with some other items too. I know the prices were hiked up because I bought them some time back and the lightning deals were more than what I paid during the usual times .. if you really watch the same item for some time, the prices do come down later to their "normal" rates.

i never expected amazon to do all these things .. maybe it grown too big and policies change and people who define these policies cannot be controlled and some of them get greedy
