Am i crazy or is this item available on amazon for less?
Welcome to MD, where you pay the same price as anywhere else (or more) and still have to wait a month (or more) to receive your purchase.
Heh, that's bleak, but thanks i guess.
Well, it's just an observation of the pricing trends on MD. More and more items are priced higher or the same as normal etailers who have the item in stock and don't force you wait a month for it. This whole idea of groupbuy as the means to use collective bargaining to achieve lower prices appears to be dead, and MD is simply turning into a regular etailer with the inconvenience of forced wait period before the product ships out.
Fair enough, i guess the market will adapt to new ways of bargaining eventually. Too bad i joined the game a little bit on the late side. Thanks for the response by the way, it's nice to see that the community is active!
I just use it as a tool for finding neat things. They seem to generally curate the stuff that they choose to drop, however I always double check the price to make sure I can't just get it on amazon first.
Some of the Massdrop x products I think are worth as well.
