Default One Born Every Minute and Two To Take Him !

I was doing a search on the bay for a chicken pan and ran across this animal @ $454.25 but free ship[ping !
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stansport-Ca...MakeTrack=true

So I did a search on this forum for Stansport and came up high and dry. Went to Amazon where what appears to be the exact same pan/lid can be had for the princely sum of $32.99 + $7.05 shipping.

http://www.amazon.com/Stansport-Cast...nsport+chicken

TBH it kind of made me angry. I can see an entrepreneur making a buck on his investment, time and effort, but over $400 profit is downright sleazy AFAIC. I sent a PM to the ebay seller with a link to the Amazon pan asking if it was the same. Got no reply. Be careful out there.

Price is now $563.16. Perhaps your PM did some good after all.

As of now (12:17 pm) the price is $53.16, so perhaps the original price was "fat fingered".

How about that. Might have been as simple as a typo. No reply from the ebay seller to my message but I think you're right.

I would think a typo also. Glad you brought it to their attention.

You think your chicken fryer had a mark-up??? Check out this listing for a Lodge Sportsman Grill. You'll find (MANY) at a cost of around $125-$130 listed at the same e-Bay site.

You left out "Free Shipping" but best of all "location not set" but somewhere in the United States.

The seller for the Sportsman Grill is worth a laugh. 1699 positive and only one negative review. What can possibly go wrong?

Assuming that all those 1699 were Sportsman Grill's that equates out to be $1,932,986.20. Guess the laugh is on us??? Huh...Wonder If that one negative review was a returned item? Maybe there was one person that figured out the price wasn't that good of a deal.
