I've seen better prices on amazon if you keep looking daily. But I understand to some this may be needed sooner than later but it's quite pricey imo

Damn, that’s honestly really expensive considering what you would normally pay for. Hate that companies are trying to make money of such supplies. Pathetic.

How are they retailing n95 masks? I thought Canada did not have enough so those were now only for healthcare workers?

Just so you know, to import from China now by air freight. You are looking at a cost of about $2.50usd + $.50/pc + duties to ship, so their markup is pretty standard when their cost could be in the $5/cad per. Prices have shot up in the last 2 weeks for N95 even from China.

I think it's only for healthcare workers. "Healthcare" is the only option in the drop-down box. Typically they have options like "regular" and "seniors".

Assuming these are actually N95... there are lots of reports of poor quality PPE coming out of China

What's the senior and government employees discount? I see the drop down but when you select it the price remains the same ?

Wow! Thought I was doing a good thing by posting this, seeing as I have been looking for hand sanitizer for over a month and really needed some. I was willing to pay a bit more. Thought some people would appreciate it.

Maybe we can ask mods to delete this thread then??

For all those people bitching at the price gouging, there are ONLY two options here.

1) Sell at 'regular' prices at which case it gets sold out in 2 seconds
2) Let market economics work.

You have nothing to apologize for. Just a bunch of cheap entitled people on RFD as always.

Image I paid 3$ for this bottle of hand sanitizer (725 ml), this other bottle is really expensive, we should report it to 311.
