Roz Speaks Out: Amazon – Allows Market Place Seller’s To Charge Customers Double

Kodak Z1012 Digital Camera

I am appalled that Amazon.com, who I like very much, and who I buy from regularly…  Allow’s their “Market Place” sellers to charge customers “twice the price” for an item.  Perhaps what is bothering me more is that Amazon.com, themselves is promoting this particular seller in an email that Amazon.com just sent out to their mailing list.  In my book, that implies that Amazon.com is saying this is ok!

In this case, the item in question is the “Kodak Z1012 Digital Camera.

I have been watching this camera for many months now as I have a personal interest in it.  Perhaps if this were not the case I would not have known the difference in price when Amazon.com’s email advertisement hit my email box just a few moments ago.

Amazon.com is quoting $479.95 – sold by their “Market Place” Vendor BlueProton, for a camera that Kodak, itself retails for $249.95.

This is outrageous in my opinion.  Staples had the same camera a week or two ago for $219.95.  Staples regular price is $249.95.

My point here…  BE CAREFUL and check out your prices BEFORE you purchase anything… whether online or offline.  It could be very costly for you if you do not!
