One thing I really hate about Amazon

I find an item I want to order..then I look at it several days later and the item has doubled in price! This has happened on there a few times. Also, never put items on your "wish list" as the item will invariably jump in price. When they know you are interested in something, often, but not always the items will be significantly more when you look at them again. I may complain today and see if I can get a credit on the purchase..GRRR AMAZON..

Interesting update, I switched computers and used one that had no "cookies on" I saw the item (Cat fountain) again at the reduced price..so I ordered it! Strike while the iron is hot!

really? It never happened to me in Lazada. I usually put it in my list and after a while I came back with the same prize unless the stock was out

Well, an hour later it isn't going to be different but a few days later it likely will be, at least on Amazon..I don't know what Lazada is.

Yes that has happened to me as well. I look at an item and then i wait till i have enough amazon dollars to use to be able to purchase the item for barely nothing. I am trying right now to get more amazon dollars form checkpoints and then i will go ahead and order something, hopefully in the next few days or if i have enough paypal money ill order it on wish. Its annoying but i try to always get he best deal too.

That is funny you say this because it is the total opposite with my boyfriend the stuff he has saved to get at a later time goes down when it does he hurried up and buys it before it goes back up

I am not a fan of Amazon whose prices generally are not lower that a real store.

The only reason I like to order from them is that I always have Amazon certificates from my various endeavors and they carry just about everything.

When I see prices jump like that on Amazon I let it sit in my cart until the price comes back down. I have lots of items sitting in my cart which are saved for later. I never put anything on my wish list for the same reason you mentioned.

Never noticed it. I buy cat food and kitty litter and books for book club on it. I will have to pay more attention to increases in price.

I can understand your feeling. That's crazy that the price increases so much shortly.
