OK, so someone is selling Bono cards at 12 Euros 50 which is 50 cents above the recommend retail price, which is still great value. So, if you are a visitor, it adds 50 p to your holiday. So what. As someone once said, ?you can't buck the market.? If people are prepared to pay this "extortionate" amount then so be it. And if they are not, they will go elsewhere to buy. Where excessive profits are to be made, lots of retailers will enter the market. The fact that their are so few retailers at 12 Euros indicates that profits are very low.
Have a thought for the hard pressed retailers trying to make a living in difficult times. The issue reminds me of British tourists trying to beat down African market traders by a few cents just for the hell of it when a small margin can make the difference between survival and disaster for the retailer. Provided that it's not illegal to charge 12 Euros 50 I think it's unfair to criticise the retailer in question.
