I have been looking for her for weeks in both the US and in Canada to no avail. And when I got the last instock popup two days ago, she sold out while my page was loading my placed order. But today, I went to close the nowinstock.net desktop window giving up...and must of clicked the Amazon saved page I got on it and it said IN STOCK. I jumped on there and brought her. She'll cost me $49.99 in total, but that's no different then ordering her from TRU CANADA where she is $36.99 plus the shipping and the HST.

Man, I always miss her.  I can't find her anywhere in town either.

Yay, I finally got her!!
That is a 3rd party seller using Fullfilment by Amazon. If you were buying directly from Amazon the price would be $19.99.

No, that's not what "In stock. Ships from and sold by Amazon" means. I haven't seen Jinafire or Skelita sold by Amazon for $19.99 other than the initial listing and have seen them 4 or 5 times since then at $21.99. True, the others show up as $19.99 including Rochelle which is currently in stock, but Amazon frequently has different prices even for products that are part of the same assortment.

When you posted that the item would be in stock on the 17th, that was a 3rd party seller. I sell on Amazon too and sellers have the option to have Amazon ship items for them but Amazon is not the seller, they just ship out the products.

I'm well aware of how Amazon works. If it's sold by a third-party seller it either says "Sold by and ships from <company>" or "Sold by <company>. Fulfilled by Amazon." The difference is, you have to ship the product to them to have them ship it for you, it doesn't just magically ship from their inventory. When it was no longer available for immediate shipping it went out of stock for about a minute, then came back stating it would be in stock on the 17th and "Ships from and sold by Amazon"

Be serious for a minute, outside of the rare person trying to help out fellow forum members or something like that, when's the last time you saw someone resell for msrp when there are people out there desperate enough to actually pay the $40+ they're asking and they know that? Especially considering the shipping cost to ship the product to Amazon first and have them ship it for you, you're losing money at that point

Dudes. The 21.99 seller is AMAZON's warehouse. 19.99 is Mattel's warehouse. There's a difference. Anyone selling higher then those too are third party stores and individual sellers.

Well Amazon has to make profit too. They purchase the dolls from Mattel to sell, so they need to add money to actually make a profit from them. Which makes sense because how else will Amazon pay bills and their employees if they were just paying what they brought them for. Plus on top of that, they give 90% of that money back to Mattel. But both sell separately. Mattel doesn't have to add money to theirs because it's their product and they buy straight from the manufacturer where Amazon would go through a distributor.
