Question Do amazon's prices change right before your eyes?

Well I was looking around earlier and went back to buy a book listed at $2.99 and was $2.99 earlier for me. Now it is $17+ when I try to put it in my cart but still says $2.99.

I know in the past they had different prices for different folks based upon some "system". Tricky, tricky...

I haven't done that much shopping at Amazon but I'll sure keep my eyes open when I do go. That's not fair to have different prices for different people.

I remember reading somewhere that a wife signed in, it was one price. She signed out, her husband who had a g/c applied to his account signed in, it was higher. Wife signed back in and it was the lower price.

Shady shady.

I think they got in trouble for doing that several years ago. Sort of a bait and switch thing. I know their prices do seem to fluctuate quite often. On the up side, if something you bought goes down in price, they are very good about refunding you the difference.
