SOP. I see stuff on Amazon all the time for many multiples of the base price.
It has to do with their stocking software & the inventory on hand.
When there is too much of item "X" in stock, the price automatically lowers until it triggers a sale.
When the stock is low, it will automatically jack up the price like crazy.

I just ignore it & wait until it goes on sale. I've waited 3 years for an item to go on sale & then jump on it.
