I know things are tough all around and that new tariffs have been imposed but come on, the price of instock items changing so drastically…
Today I went on Amazon to check the status of a spindle sander that I had in one of my wish lists. It has been $323 for several weeks and was when I checked at 06:00 this morning. I was debating on this model or going to HomeDepot for the RIGID model. After getting back from grocery shopping I checked Amazon again only to find the price is now $410, a $90 increase (that’s 29%). So off to HomeDepot I go to order the RIGID model for $248.
I looked up the bandsaw I purchased in February for $381.48 which is now listed for $574.29, a $192.81 increase (that’s 50%!!!).
Both of these are WEN models, a US company that gets things from China. So Trump’s stupid tariffs are having an impact.
All of these items are showing as “in stock” and “ships from and sold by Amazon.ca”. So what is the reason for the changes?
