    Classic on amazon UK for £ 159.99

    Price seems to be all over the shop at the moment. I got one from Amazon UK in July for £119.99; last month they were £169.99; you say that yesterday they were £30 more expensive than that; and now they're back down to £159.99. One wonders whether anybody knows what's going on, let alone what they ought to be doing about it........

    Classic on amazon UK for £ 159.99

    Really? Good Lord. I never realised. Five different prices in as many months and that's just one sale. Amazing.

    Forgive my naivety, but is it really a special offer to sell something for £40 more now than the price at which it was offered in the summer?

    Amazon's pricing policy seems very weird. I get the impression that on low-volume items, they drop the price a lot if they aren't selling (presumably to try and clear out the inventory), but then if it starts selling again the prices goes back up.

    Example: I was wondering whether to buy the "Babylon 5 Complete Universe" DVD set when it was about 90 quid. A few months later it was down to about 65, so I snapped it up. Shortly after that it was back up to about 120.

    You're forgiven. Yup that's right, RRP is 199 so both 119 and 159 are special offers
