Amazon raised prices of EVERYTHING today

I have about 30-40 blu-rays in my shopping basket at Amazon to track prices. As of this morning (3-17) every single one of them went up in price. Guess they weren't interested in selling anything on St. Patrick's Day.

I'm sure they'll go down again - just seems like a waste of everyone's time to keep yo-yo-ing like they do.

Should've posted this in Store Forum.

Bezos must have had a bad day at the track.

I noticed that today too looking at my wishlist. Not really hoping to pay 29.99 for Zombieland, and thats just one of the hikes.

Ya, all of mine went up too. A board game went down in price though... I'm sure tomorrow Amazon will lower all of the prices again. It's just like the stock market, after all...

Sounds to me like a sale ended today. Make sure you start a new deal thread next time a sale ends. Thanks!

Doesn't this mean a sale is just around the corner?

I have 30 items in my cart, a mix of DVDs, book, CDs, video games, electronics. 2 went up, 1 went down, the rest didn't change today. So they did not raise the price of everything.

That's even more outrageous. How dare they be so inconsistent?

Wow, Lonesome Dove went from $8.99, the price I added it at yesterday, to $24.99 today. Gotta strike while the iron is hot I guess.

Re: Amazon raised prices of EVERYTHING today

Truthfully, has anyone taken the time to check everything Amazon sells, to see if it all indeed went up to price?

Re: Amazon raised prices of EVERYTHING today

I seriously doubt it all went up in price. However, it is true that Amazon's stock market pricing has become ridiculous to the point where I don't even try to follow it. Unless I really need something specific, I have a habit of sticking to their warehouse deals or any other third party vendor that has the tag of Fulfilled by Amazon. Just seems easier that way.

Re: Amazon raised prices of EVERYTHING today

I have about two dozen blu-rays on my Wish List, and almost every one jumped 5%-10%. Lot of movies went from 30% Off to 25% Off. Hopefully this isn't part of a new pricing strategy. Maybe they're preparing for a big sale?

Everything I was tracking did not go up. Every single blu-ray in my cart did though.....

You guys know that keeping movies in your cart or wishlist prevents them from showing up in your Gold Box, right?

Every 5% helps.

Re: Amazon raised prices of EVERYTHING today

There was a decent price hike on many titles I wanted a few days ago as well.

(e.g. Been waiting for a good deal on Contact & Deep Impact BDs... went from about $16.99 to $19.99 & $20.XX.)

A couple audio CDs I wanted went up 2-3 dollars as well.

Many prices are no better than Best Buy now .

I heard that sometimes price hikes mean a big sale is coming - hope so. I won't be buying too much media at Amazon if it stays this way.

That's not true. I keep getting Gold Box offers for stuff I have in my cart constantly.

Yes ... I do it just before watching every DVD (and now Blu-Ray, just in case) in my collection every week to ensure that DVD-rot has not set in ... (anybody care to dig up that thread?)
