The Most Expensive Things on Amazon (That People Actually Buy)

by

Amazon has a huge range of items for sale – from basically free products to luxurious items costing over hundreds of thousands of dollars. The average order value for online shopping orders in the US hovers around 80 dollars so it might be reasonable to think also Amazon’s number is close to that. Nonetheless, they still have very expensive products for sale. Everybody has seen humorous items such as this 200k trivia game. That kind of products surely stand out from the crowd for their price, but the thing is, nobody actually buys them. Hence, in this article, I will introduce you to expensive stuff that people are actually getting – enjoy!

1. A spa

This Lifesmart Rock Solid Luna plug’n’play Spa, despite its price, is actually rather popular on Amazon. It looks like a perfect item for your garden. Few useful features are three seating positions, twelve total jets and a “comfort valve” air mixing system. The spa has been on the catalogue for years and people have written positive comments about it – seems like a decent product!

2. A digital camera

Canon or Nikon, that’s the choice you have to make when you want a top-notch digital camera. Based on the opinion of dozens of people, this expensive Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is the way to go! It supports 30.4 megapixels, 7.0fps continuous shooting and ISO range from 100 to 32000 – ensuring you can also snap photos in dark environments. The Canon records 4K video at 30 fps. But the most distinctive thing is the image quality – if you want only the best looking pictures, your choice should be something like this Canon.

3. An auto diagnostics tool

If you have a problem with your car, Autel Maxisys Elite Diagnostic Tool can (will be) helpful. It’s one of the more pricey items but people still rely on it. The Autel supports over eighty US, Asian and EU makes and models, showing the errors and bugs your car might have. Connect it to your car via WiFi, Bluetooth, RJ-45 or USB and find out what’s wrong with your automobile!

4. A portable cooler

Portacool PAC2K482S 48-Inch Portable Evaporative Cooler is not your typical fan. First, it blows cool air to an area of 4,000 square feet, lowering temperature for about 20 degrees. Second, it weighs 405 pounds, but the unit has wheels in the bottom so you can push it around with friends. People comment: Tthe product is exactly it says it is”. What more can you ask for?

5. A turntable

Technics SL-1210Mk5 TurnTable is a must-have product for every professional (or wannabe professional) DJ. There are only a handful or turntables that are pricier than this. The high price is largely explained by the brand. Everybody knows and trusts Technics. People who bought it says the product lasts for years – that’s really something you can expect from this pricey item!

6. A Rolex watch

No list of pricey products would be complete without a watch, a Rolex watch. Their Yacht Master II is a premium model of the already premium brand, but there are still few (rich?) people who have actually bought it. The timepiece is made of stainless steel and it comes with a Rolex oyster bracelet. If you want to stand out from the crowd in a special way, this Rolex should definitely do the trick!

7. A film scanner

Nikon Super CoolScan 5000 ED Film Scanner will scan your paper photographs to digital format. That being said, it’s still a very expensive item so only avid photographers or photo hobbyists would buy it, I imagine. The unit supports 4000 dpi resolution and takes scans in twenty seconds. The data is transferred via USB and this model works with PCs and Macintosh (probably Linux too). Also features one-touch image correction that adjusts brightness and color saturation.

8. A movie

You wouldn’t think a movie costed so much, but apparently Guns And Weed: The Road To Freedom does. It’s a documentary about Constitutional rights, their problems and benefits. The doc has received 7.7 IMDB rating so it’s definitely watchable. People also seem to like it in Amazon, so there’s no reason to skip this. Wait, there is one. The flick costs so much. How is it possible?

9. A water ionizer

Tyent UCE-11 Under Counter Water Ionizer is a tool that promises to raise the pH of the drinking water on your tap. Supposedly, your water becomes more alkaline which has excellent sounding health benefits such as disease resistance and slower ageing. I don’t think there is scientific evidence backing up these claims, but the product has been selling like hotcakes nonetheless. If you believe it helps you, check the Tyent out.

10. A massage chair

I didn’t know massage chairs were this pricey, but apparently Schultz ZycraPulse Massage Lounge Chair is. I guess the reason is that once you buy this, you don’t ever need to pay for a massage therapist again. In the long run, such a massage chair can be a cheaper option, yes. It has five auto presets and five massage techniques you can choose, also heat therapy is supported. As expected for this price, the product has received raving reviews.

There you go, some of the most expensive products on Amazon that are actually selling. I wouldn’t call them everyday items, but there must still be some value in them. Otherwise, nobody would be buying such products. Now, my question to you is: Do you have experience in such expensive goods? Or do you feel some high price article was left wrongfully out of this post? Speak your mind below!
