They talk about inflation all the time, and we guess there is some truth about it, as most prices are on the rise, and they have been like that for a couple of years or so. Still, some things seem to be a lot more expensive than they should be, which is why the list below it exists. It shows the suggestions some people made about things they consider being way too overpriced. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The dumbbels
We think that this is a specific thing because not everyone went out looking for dumbbells, but those who did could confirm this.
2. The wipes
We guess that this is not a normal price for such a product, and it should probably cost a few times less than this price.
3. The app
Looks like someone made a lot of money while their app was online, and we guess that App Store did the right thing.
4. The ink
Many people still use printers, and we guess they could easily confirm that printer ink has become very expensive.
5. The rock
We are not sure about this because we have never heard about this before. This reminded us of the Pet Rock craze 50 years ago.
6. The asparagus
This is a post that nobody could argue with, and such a product should not cost $6. We think that this is a whopping price.
7. The disk reader
This is something that should not cost as much, and we guess there is no wonder why it ended in the clearance bin.
8. The shop
This is how market prices are formed. If this person thinks it is an overpriced painting, someone else would gladly pay it.
9. The products
Here is something that we all know about and it seems that people are not bothered by this fact, as they still buy such products.
10. The calculator
Wow, this is something that sounds very odd, to say the least. Such a product should cost a lot less, we believe.
11. The service
This is also a fact we all know of, but there are many people who gladly pay insane amounts of money for alcohol in bars.
12. The diamonds
This is true, and we know that the industry always strives to maintain the high prices of diamonds so they can profit.
13. The weddings
This is one of the things that should not be like that. This is a special day in the life of a person, and it should not cost a fortune.
14. The motor
It seems this person is in search of something specific, and we are not sure about whether this is a steep price or not.
15. The can
We have always thought that these chips cost an arm and a leg, and you get a few bites for a whopping price.
16. The earbuds
We understand that some of these gadgets and devices are better than others, but they are usually overpriced to the point they are hardly affordable.
17. The insulin
We understand that some people are not aware of this, but it is a fact, and we think there should be a regulation for that.
18. The products
It is true that these products, alongside other sanitary products, cost a small fortune, and we know that they can be affordable.
19. The cellphone
We know that there are people who would gladly pay money to own such a phone, but there is no doubt that such products are almost always overpriced.
20. The food
We wonder why these places charge as much as they do, considering that they still make a profit from selling tickets. We guess they want to earn even more.
21. The homes
This is true, but we still think that luxury homes have lots of differences from ordinary ones. We guess that they are sometimes worth the price.
22. The college tuition
We guess this is the kind of topic that could be discussed for hours, but we all know this is true. We hope it changes in the future.
23. The Cheetos
We have heard about this before, and it is probably the wackiest specific business niche ever. There are people who really pay this kind of money for oddly shaped Cheetos.
24. The supermarket
It seems that even the high-end stores could sometimes fail to sell something overpriced, and this attempt sounds absurd.
25. The shirt
Wow, this is something that sounds impossible, but we guess that there are people who would pay this kind of money for a T-shirt.
26. The handbags
We know this is a status symbol, but there are moments when we question the price policy of the most luxurious items out there.
27. The healthcare
We wish this was not true, but it is. There are many people who would struggle for years after paying their medical bills.
28. The pillow
This is the power of modern marketing and branding. If you believe something is worth it, then you will gladly buy it.
29. The glasses
We understand that some people are in desperate need of glasses, but they sometimes struggle to afford it. This should not be a fact.
30. The scissor
There are things that are overpriced for seemingly no reason. There are moments when we see similar items and we think people just try to see if someone would buy them.
31. The store
It seems that there is no point in buying an expensive phone, as there are new and better models coming out every month or so.
32. The plans
We are not sure about this one, but we guess there are many countries where cell phone plans are too expensive.
33. The merch
This is true for the majority of branded merch you could find, and we guess these items really are overpriced. Still, people buy them.
34. The cloud
This is a matter of choice, and sometimes people need these services. Therefore, they pay whatever fee they owe in order to use the service.
35. The insurance
Here is yet another something that we can all agree with. Some of the insurance companies charge a lot of money.
36. The reasons
We know that some people would relate to this post, and we can confirm that some areas have very steep prices on ordinary products and items.
