Book sellers do this because they keep the items as "place holders". The Amazon website is a confusing place for sellers with various different accounts and customer service is next to useless. I don't know why Amazon allows "place holders" but they do.
While obviously most of these kind of prices are just glitches or entry error, I sometimes wonder if they're really some kind of money laundering scam or using the marketplace to sell something illegal and just listed as something else.
yea... this must be a joke... i wonder if this guy got any benefits for making an amazon store. i am almost 100 percent sure he doesn't have these items. but if someone actually pays that much, then i'm sure he wouldn't mind going thru the trouble of buying it, and forwarding it to the person...
i feel like he must have found an incentive to open an amazon store with so many items...
as for tofuvic, man... i really do love his posts. if it was anyone else, i would thumb down this. but since it's tofuvic, i'll just leave it alone... a FUNNY post, but not a good deal... at all... far from it...
I found an Amazon seller with a financial accident (I don't dare use the wrong words and suffer the SD gods' wrath). Most of the sellers' items are listed at $9,999 each. However, approximately 1 out of every 8 products is not $9,999. There's the chance that an item has been priced wrongly in the other way. If you're bored, feel free to search for the possible gem (this may take a while, as the seller has 7,019 items for sale).
Yes, this is unlike my regular threads. Yes, this will likely get downvoted (I'll even downvote my own thread!). But if there is a good deal somewhere, perhaps someone will find it.
I wonder how many purchases this seller will have gotten by attracting the attention they're now receiving from Slickdeals. "If I price most of my items at $9,999 but hide a few freebies among them, I'll have hundreds of people browsing my inventory hoping to get lucky, many of whom could purchase the normally priced items - at the very least I'll have massively increased the traffic to my storefront."
Seller Response: Thank you for support our artisan item, your rating and comment motivate my artisan to make his work better. Million thanks for your feedback, my important friend. With sincerity and Best regards, Asia Trendy Shop "We not sell only item but we sell with sincerity and take care you as my family"
