The things that surround us are often too expensive for us to have access to them. These things are not limited to luxury stuff like supercars or yachts. There is a bundle of other items and services that seem to be overpriced for no reason at all, and we guess that you can name at least a few of those. The good thing is that we have places like Reddit that allow everyone to share their opinion on a topic, and the people whose posts are shared below tell us the things they consider too expensive for no reason. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The payments
This person pays rent via a bank, and the fees related to covering this expense cost a whopping $25, meaning that they pay $300 per year for transfer fees.
2. The software
Well, this is surely the kind of thing we are all familiar with, and we believe that the pricing of such products is not in favor of the customers.
3. The price tag
This is a weird thing to mention, and we believe that if the person specified this, they must be accurate, which means that this item is surely overpriced.
4. The taxes
Some countries have low taxes, but other places are literally stealing from their citizens without giving back what they should, which is quite unfortunate.
5. The diamonds
This is not something that the general public is aware of, but diamonds are not super rare. Their high price is being maintained on purpose by monopolists, or so the word goes.
6. The insulin
This sounds like a bad thing, and to be honest, it is. We guess that some people are probably making a lot of money from this product, but it is not right.
7. The weddings
There is hardly anything more frustrating than knowing that getting married would cost a fortune. We guess wedding preparations should cost a lot less.
8. The tests
These tests should have been free from the start, but we paid for them several times and we will continue paying for at least another couple of months, probably.
9. The food
Grocery shopping costs a lot of money these days, and despite being essential, food becomes more expensive each year, and that is something that needs to change.
10. The mobile service
There are many things that should not be the way they are, and the prices of mobile service plans should be way lower than they are. It feels like stealing.
11. The products
Some Apple fans would not agree with this because they consider these products to be expensive for a reason, but some of these prices sound absurd.
12. The NFTs
This is a new trend and we believe we have yet to see if they are going to become a thing or if they will fade away as fast as they emerged. Still, we guess that NFTs today are overpriced.
13. The house
Those who dream of moving to a house and leaving their old flat need to pay a lot of money today. It was way cheaper to buy a house a decade ago.
14. The education
People pay for an education that they need, but sometimes the prices are too steep, and one cannot help but wonder if it was all worth it. Nobody can blame people who think like that.
15. The roof
Paying the rent has become unbearable for millions of people, meaning that they would need to struggle with two or three jobs to have a roof over their heads.
16. The tickets
Knowing that going to your local theatre would be too expensive for you to afford it means that you will be deprived of cultural experiences you need.
17. The LEGO sets
Buying a LEGO set has become a bit of luxury these days, and we guess that it all went from kids’ favorite blocks to trendy sets and gifts that cost a lot.
18. The bottled water
Here is how one person pointed to one of the most obvious things that should not cost as much as they do. After all, it is just water.
19. The e-books
Many people have already adopted the habit of replacing normal books with electronic ones. We see no problem with this, except for the prices of e-books.
20. The dental services
We know that some people are not as happy with the prices of dental services as others, but we cannot deny that they cost a small fortune in most places around the world.
21. The supplies
This post tells the truth, as such supplies are very overpriced, at least in our opinion. We understand there are production costs involved, but we still wish they were cheaper.
22. The products
In addition to the previous post, we guess that this is another problem with overpriced items we face on a daily basis, and it would be nice if these items are cheaper some day.
23. The roses
Trying to show you have a romantic soul has a price these days. As much as we would like to show love and affection, doing it with the help of some roses will cost a lot of money.
24. The glasses
Glasses are a necessity, and we guess that they should be affordable to anyone who needs them, but the reality is that if you want glasses with a prescription, you will need to pay a lot of money.
25. The medication
We have always wondered why medications costs as much as it does, and we are not sure about this particular one, but if the person says it is overpriced, then it must be so.
26. The blinds
Getting blinds for your home is probably be something you would consider being affordable, but one look at the prices out there and you will realize it is not like that.
27. The fees
This is a thing that all those who pay such fees would agree, and there must be a reason for these prices, but they should be more affordable.
28. The juice
We know that some fast-food chains are affordable, but this one is one among them. Five dollars for a glass of juice is a bit steep, to say the least.
29. The service
This is a service that we believe should not cost as much as it does, but we are sure that the prices of such a ceremony and all related activities will not go down anytime soon.
30. The homes
It seems that this is the most important thing that is currently overpriced, unfortunately, and we wish housing was as affordable as it was 10 or 20 years ago.
31. The designer stuff
We are quite certain that something that has any designer’s name on it is probably too overpriced, and it would be cheap if the logo is not available, despite the quality would be the same.
32. The healthcare
The USA is not the only country in the world with overpriced healthcare, but we need to agree that this is the type of service that should not cost a fortune anywhere in the world.
33. The textbooks
Many people avoid buying the textbooks they are required too simply because they cannot afford them, and this is a good enough reason for these books to be cheaper.
