Discontinued Item to Sell on eBay - Bounce Dryer Bar Fresh Linen Scent

The Bounce Dryer Bar - what a great invention. Just stick it in the inside of your dryer and it takes the place of dryer sheets for 90 days. There are several different scents, and apparently the Fresh Linen scent has been discontinued.

eBay completeds show 112 results when the keywords "Bounce Dryer Bar fresh linen" are searched. Some of the listings are lots of different scents so there are definitely fewer than 112 listings for a single bar. The regular retail price for this item is $5-$6. One can conclude that this item is selling at a premium. Some examples:

Lot of 5 bars sold for $72.99 on June 3

Lot of 5 sold for $57 + $9.45 shipping on June 7

Lot of 4 sold for $68.67 on May 28

Be on the lookout for this item at grocery stores, Target, Walmart, Big Lots, or closeout stores. If you find any - list and price  high. This item does not expire and if you wait until the supply is scarce, you can make more money.

Now, some readers (who are buyers) will think we are price gouging. Not so! We are not selling a life-saving product. No one is going to die if they don't have a Bounce Dryer bar. This is simply the law of supply and demand in action - the less there is of something, the more it is worth. eBay is its own marketplace governed by supply and demand dynamics. Scarcity is a driving force in how eBay sellers earn a living. eBay sellers are also providing a private shopping service by finding these items and making them available online. That is a service worth paying for.

These types of discontinued items are all around you - if you know how to look for them. Make sure you subscribe to my blog (top right corner) so you can stay in the know and receive these updates via email. Happy hunting!
