Amazon raised the price of this machine $30 Why? Cos they saw what HSN was getting for basically the same machine?

Don't worry, it will go back down. It seems to go up and down pretty often.

I have figured that AMAZON is not doing these prices individually - no thought really - it is a paradigm containing elements of how much is in stock, MSRP, probably pricing other markets that they have set in the program (like maybe WALMART and COSTCO whose sites aren't on AMAZON), and it applies to everything on AMAZON. For years I have had over 30 things in my cart at once, and it ebbs and flows and I watch the prices. Every now and then I buy something, weed and add etc.

I do the same thing on Amazon and it's amazing how much prices fluctuate. For example, I had been wanting some clips that you use to hold your binding on your quilts when you sew the binding (can't remember what they're called). Anyway, when I put them in my cart they were $13. Then they shot up to $17 within a couple days. Then a week later they went to $11 and I bought them.

BTW, I was lucky enough to get the 9960 in May when Amazon had a 4 hour sale for $259 I LOVE this machine. I actually use it more than my Janome 6600.

This is so true! I've seen sewing books fluctuate like the price of gold, or stocks in some cases. Makes me think that if I buy a sewing book for $90, that it might go up in price. Then after that, it drops to $30.
