Different products maybe, but pricing on an item when it was specifically searched for? I know different vendors have different pricing on items but Amazon Prime is supposed to show the lowest price and price match if there is a lower one. Also that was 'Amazon's Choice" which should be the same for anyone viewing it.

If I could have sent them the two screen shots I would have but their customer service A I responses just give you the same run around of useless information.

I'll let them respond and maybe find out why. I wasn't buying the vise, just curious as to why it came up at a 30% higher price within a minute or two of another person pulling it up.


I hear you. I would have thought not but I’ve had it happen to me a few times now when I asked a buddy what he thought of a “deal” and he and I got different prices. Once, it happened while standing next to each other.

Another thing I’ve noticed is that occasionally, if I go back to an item more than 2 times, by the third or fourth visit, the price drops a little. However, if I don’t buy it then, it goes back to the regular price.

Some amount of what I’m observing is likely concomitant and not causal, but not all of it. Also this is my “lived experience” and if you don’t believe it you’re racist. It’s fact. So there’s that.

IIRC Amazon at one time was offering some sort of handyman service. A guy was explaining how Amazon set the rates based on zip codes. Wealthier people in particular zip codes paid more for a service. Maybe they do the same with buying shit on their site?

Get it fast at the $103 before their algorithm figures out it doesn't weigh 0.69 Kg.

I miss Lew and his stories.

I think his best 2 were his scorpion story and climbing Kiliamanjaro. I think the former was prep for hte latter and the latter was at least 2 if not 3 catalogs of stories. LOL

Showing up as 160 for me, too. I don't need one, though, so not about to ask them why...
Showing up as unavailable. LOL. You people have a vice vice. ;)

Fishing related, just got one. Seems a very well regarded tackle box. For Costco members only. $19.99 and free shipping. $42 on Amazon.

I have a similar tackle box.

I took a bunch of square pvc? Cut them to the hight of the internal compartment and then banded them together for dividers. Then I use clear acrylic calendars with stoppers on the bottom to throw inside the dividers.

What I end up with is a clear tube that can hold everything and is modular to what o want to bring on an outing.
