During this last Middle East & Europe wandering, I managed to buy the same semi-durable good three times. Opps. It’s a basic European to USA power adapter. Just two prongs. So, how much did this cost in Egypt, France and InternetLand?
- Alexandria, Egypt: 0.27 USD (1.5 EGP)
- Amazon.com, InternetLand: 0.95 USD (plus shipping… varies)
- Paris, France: 6.71 USD (4.90 EUR)
That gives a 2,385% markup for Paris over Alexandria. Ouch.
