Possibly saving money on Amazon and are 500,000 South Koreans really white racists?

(weekend blog)

Two different bits this weekend:

1. How to possibly save money on Amazon?

Hopefully readers know that if you go on a flights, holidays or train tickets website, check the price of travel on a particular date and then don’t buy – the next time you visit that website for the same trip, the price will probably have gone up as the company knows that particular trip on particular dates are of interest to you. But if you check the same trip from a different computer/device, the price will probably be lower.

By accident, I just found that the opposite can work on Amazon. I was looking for a pair of Asics GT2000 6 running shoes (UK size 10 or 10.5). When I first checked the price, I was quoted around £115 plus around £4 delivery on Amazon. There’s no way I’m paying over £100 for some running shoes that probably cost about £2 to make in a factory in Vietnam. So, I didn’t buy the aforementioned running shoes.

Following my search on Amazon, every few days I got an email from Amazon featuring running shoes – in particular the Asics GT2000 6. But on the latest email, I noticed the price quoted was just £86 including free delivery. So I clicked on the email, went to Amazon and checked how much I would have to pay for a UK size 10 or 10.5. Sure enough, the price was £86 including free delivery. That’s about £30 less than I was quoted a week ago!

Though I’ve checked again today and am still being quoted less than £90. But I don’t know if that’s because they’ve dropped their prices overall or if I’m being targeted with a lower price because I didn’t buy the first 3 to 4 times I looked at the running shoe.

Of course, not every company selling on Amazon will cut prices if you don’t buy the first or even second time you look at a particular product. But it seems that some sellers may have set up their systems to cut prices if you look at a specific product several times but don’t buy it and then respond to an email featuring the product you didn’t buy despite looking at it several times.

I don’t know if the price was just reduced for me as I’d looked at the Asics GT2000 6 running shoes several times and not bought and I don’t know what price readers would be quoted for men’s Asics GT2000 6 running shoes UK size 10 and 10.5. But it would be interesting if readers were still being quoted around £115 plus delivery charges.

2. Are 500,000 South Koreans white racists?

We all know that anyone who opposes mass, uncontrolled, Third-World migration and population replacement is a vicious, violent, backwards, white, supremacist, fascist, ignorant, knuckle-dragging, uneducated, bigoted, mini-Hitler racist.

So, why have over 500,000 South Koreans signed a petition demanding absolutely no immigrants from Africa and the Middle East?

I don’t know. But here’s Paul Joseph Watson wondering why 500,000+ South Koreans might be slightly perturbed about the thought of their peaceful country ending up like Italy, Germany, Sweden or our own once great Britain:

    Well done South Koreans – hope their politicians don’t just ignore and ride roughshod over them like ours did/do.

  • William Boreham

    I can’t believe that the South Koreans are objecting to an influx of a cult that instructs them to kill all those who don’t abide by its teachings. What could possibly go wrong?

    In respect to Amazon, I have found your discovery to certainly be the case. Added to that, companies also reduce products in a flash, not necessarily on noticeable sales: I have bought coats that are selling at £70 plus for around £13; they are the first ones to keep me warm too!

    Amazon vary prices but less so today and maketplace also show from time to time so lower price may not be amazon directly.

    camelcamelcameluk is a good site to track prices and see what price history has been and if its a good price today.

    I didnt know much about South Korea, but in my quest to actualy find something on TV worth watching I came across Arirang TV and watched a number of programmes. It seems such a beautiful country with an azing landscape and lovely people , just waiting to be destroyed by you know who.
    One can only hope that such places remain so.
