Advanced Fashion Quiz: Unexpected Price Jump Edition


The fact that Amazon has a pair of fringed moccasin boots listed with a price range of $34.95 to $3,895.00 means:

a. A select few of these boots were handwoven with Robert Pattinson's hair, so they're totally worth the extra cost.

b. The world definitely will end in 2012.

c. Someone misplaced a decimal point.

d. All of the above.

p.s. I'm actually not sure.

Wow, Amazon. Way to confuse the customer.

That's hilarious! I'm sure someone misplaced a decimal point :) one time I was listing a house for sale and instead of $148,900.00 I listed it as $1,489,000.00 :) oooops

Looks like one of my prices wandered off my site and got lost in someone else's.

I happen to have it on good authority that not only are these moccasins woven from the hairs of one Mr. RPattz, they are woven by elderly tribesladies in countries so small they do not even have names(the countries, not the ladies-their names are Esmerelda and Persephone). Who only have three fingers on each hand. And so, obviously, they are worth $3,895 on account of they are so rare. And also they are magical.

Haha... I get shocked sometimes when I see things like this. These moccasins have a ridiculous range though!

there was a book I wanted to order off amazon that was listed at $35.99 but I decided to wait until my next paycheck came through. I just went to buy it and now its only available through resellers for $179.00 and I don't think its a misplaced decimal, I think its just plan mean.

a) would seem to be the most reasonable explanation for sure.

b) seems pretty likely, though I'm not sure the two probabilities are linked...

Vivian said...

LOL .. no, it's just a misplaced decimal. Whew! Case solved.

When you click on "NEW (3 from $34.95)" the other listed prices are $36.45 and - what a coincidence - $38.95. haha Silly Amazon
