You can only use the coupon once per account, max $100...today only....this is a great use if you need one of these.

Looks alive to me. I just ordered 4.

Snorkeling is inherently dangerous. Color me skeptical here...

Point taken and I'm not averse to risk for me or my kids. But we're not talking about an uncontrollable risk inherent in the activity (eg. nature, waves, creatures big and small). Here we're talking about a risk (however small) from inferior gear with a potential design flaw. That risk is easily avoided (and peace of mind easily attained) by spending a few extra bucks on traditional snorkeling gear.

This is just impossible to wash from the mind. My kids are crazy-strong swimmers and I would be watching them every second worrying about the risks from a POS $10 knockoff mask from China.

Edit: And when it's my wife that says: "Return," it's not a battle I'm willing to fight. Not worth it.

Update: I'm returning all of them. My wife (rightly) said she'd be freaking out in the water, watching our kids every second...and would never enjoy herself. Better off just spending the extra cash on the 'normal' gear.

Oh man...I bought 5 of these for our trip to Maui in a couple of weeks. Had to use 3 different Amazon accounts.

Now I'm reading about deaths caused by drowning from excess CO2 and people passing out. Not sure I'm going to return them (maybe I'll test them in our backyard pool first), but just thought I'd pass on the info to those who purchased. Use with care.

Thanks for posting that phone number. I decided to call and am getting a credit. The right result, but an annoying process. Giving the set back to my wife to bring to her office toy drive. Thanks to everyone for your help.

The fact that this could even happen is seriously disconcerting.

If this had been a gift for a family or friend, I'd fight it...but since I was just going to give it away anyway, it's not worth the fight. I might call tomorrow, but it's just going to make my blood boil even more.

What is the most frustrating is thinking about all of the other deals, coupons, price breaks and other discounts I (think I have) gotten on Amazon. I'm now wondering how many of my orders had a bait and switch like this.

In this case, the evidence of funny business is clear as day (see attached). I didn't even buy the lego cupcake thing the first time it became available at this price. The first time, I was on the fence and by the time I clicked through, it was dead. The second time, I didn't bother changing the quantity to 2 because I didn't want to lose it again...so I bought only one. But it's not like the coupon was a mistake...it came, went, and came again.

I also bought  Minecraft lego set for like $4.40 (which actually is for a nephew) and that seems to have been charged correctly.

I'll just return it; far easier. I'm far more concerned about the under-handedness. I NEVER look at my "your order has shipped" emails to confirm that the price hasn't changed. This could have happened 30 times. I just "bought" some free lightning cables...maybe they charged me for those, too.

I was absolutely serious about the use for this thing in the chat I posted.... it's sitting in my wife's car to be donated to a toy drive. No good deed goes unpunished. This seems like a pretty fundamental problem with Amazon. If they can charge one price and then raise it without consent, that's a huge problem. I paid with an Amazon gift card and don't really want my amazon account closed, so I don't really have the ability to protest the charge...but it seems like a HUGE problem.
