amazon algorithm fail?
« on: Jul 06, 2018, 05:20:09 »
I dunno what the hell is going on but i have gotten some amazing deals on brand new EBC disks. I bought the first two just because the price was so low, approximately 88% off!  Then I bought the single disk after watching it fall 5% everyday for two weeks, until it mysteriously stopped at $76 and I then bought it. Once I bought them the price went back to the normal retail price at $220 each! I was searching the EBC part numbers from their catalog, not fitment, so maybe it led me down some weird path?  I dunno, but i figured I would share in case anybody want to look up some part numbers and maybe get a deal.

It's odd, for sure.  I see it happen on items now and then as well.  I also tend to start with part numbers when looking.  I've noticed it more that way than by general descriptions.  Possibly the part number matching algorithms?
