Analytics or on-going price rises or new year demand or hype?

I recently purchased an item in eary December from Amazon for £24 and have seen it jump up in price to £36 today.

Is this analytics or on-going price rises or new year demand or hype?

@Leapy 

Maybe it'll be back next week at £24 emblazoned with 33% Off.

It’s just how Amazon goes... prices raise and lower with the competition or just because they feel like.
Often no rhyme or reason.

Probably due to Brexit costs.

Even now it's £29.99 + optional 8% off!

But that's not the surprise, it a Bluetooth Tape measure! Who'd have thought.

@dvorak 

The '9% saving' is apparently the £29.99 against £32.99 - there's also a further 8% off if you click to apply the voucher.

 

And for @VileReynard , that's probably all down to savings due to Brexit!  Tongue
