    We are running a bit low on Fairy Liquid and our local shop is out ( They did have Bog rolls though so happy days) - I was putting in an Amazon order for something I can only get online and thought whilst I was at it I would see if I could get Fairy as well - quick search showed some sponsored with it in stock at the tiny sum of either £10 for one 380ml bottle or £13 for 2x433ml thats really taking the p*ss and getting on for a 10x markup

    I'll wait for the shop to get it in or at least some washing up liquid

    Not sure why Amazon are allowing such blatant profiteering to be on their sponsored link pages but it doesnt sit well with me

    You want to search for the toilet roll on there. Sure I saw some at over £50 (just a normal multi pack, not a warehouse load)

    Report the listing to Amazon and at the very least they'll have that listing removed, at worst they'll cancel the account completely

    Buy via Amazon Prime Now instead of third party sellers.
