I always assumed that Amazon would have either the cheapest or close to it

I am waiting for this book to come out Cyador's Heirs - sad I know
On Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cyadors-Heirs-Saga-Recluce-Modesitt/dp/0765374773/ref=tmm_hrd_title_popover it is full price £18.99 but on Play.com http://www.play.com/stores/Speedyhen/listing/946761635 £11.82 with free delivery
Guess who is getting my order
The question is whether Amazon are getting greedy

Re: I always assumed that Amazon would have either the cheapest or close to it

I ordered a Harry potter full box-set on blu ray for £25 on Play but RRP it was £40 (at the time, a few years ago)
The box-set never arrived and the seller deleted their profile shortly afterwards.
So if it's too good to be true then, it probably is.

Given the reputation of that supplier and the quantity of orders it fulfils I have no concerns on that score

As a friend  who worked in Marketing explained to me once... "The price of an item/service is what people are prepared to pay."
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: I always assumed that Amazon would have either the cheapest or close to it

amazon is often the cheapest price but not always,
that said I have seen items listed under prime multiple times at differing prices all from the same seller so as always comparison search is the only true friend of the savvy shopper (I often use Google to check prices from various places)
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
