During the Pandemic, plenty of stores decided to increase their prices. Mostly, the items that were affected included the essentials – Toilet Paper, Sanitizer, and all sorts of cleaning supplies.
However, the consumer rights group known as Public Citizen recently discovered that Amazon was doing the same.
According to the group, Amazon increased prices on items such as hand sanitizer and masks. The group found items such as hand sanitizer, which normally sold for around $1.49. This item was increased to a price of $7, which is crazy.
Another example is toilet paper- they were charging $36.39 for a 8-pack, when they normally cost around $6.89.
As of now, it looks like Amazon has fixed these problems. Just watch out for yourself.
