Default Just saved about $45 on Swix wax worth $100 on Ebay

So I just went on Ebay and bought 900g worth of Swix Red Racing Bio Wax (5 bars x 180g each).

The Ebay price for the 900g was about $53 with free S/H to the US, which means that since I'm in Canada I'm going to have to go to the border to pick it up. That's fine, since that's the trade off of getting a good deal.

Supposedly in the retail market, a 180g bar of this wax runs for $20 each if it's in retail packaging.
If it's in bulk packaging, it's worth about $12.99 each.
It's a really big discrepancy, but whatever. The point is, if I were to buy a 180g Swix bar here in Canada, it'll probably be at least twenty-something dollars each.

So at the very minimum, by buying off Ebay I saved at least $10 compared to bulk packaging.
Compared to retail packaging, I saved at least $45.

P.S. I compared the product number from the Ebay pics, and it was UR8-900 (UR8 being the model number of the wax, and 900 being the 900g weight). I also compared to the Swix product page and the product number was UR8-180 (once again the UR8 is the exact same number, hence same product, and the 18 meaning it's a 180g bar.)





The seller's items are here, and no I'm not them.
I just wanted to share and help you save if you need some decent wax.
