Snap Inc.’s ‘Spectacles’ are fetching as much as $2,500 on eBay

Yesterday, Snap Inc. — formerly Snapchat — started selling its first hardware product, ‘Spectacles,’ in a kooky pop-up vending machine called a ‘bot.’ The bot stays put for all of 24 hours before moving to a new location to offer up Spectacles to other crazed fans.

And crazed they are. Those that haven’t been lucky enough to spot a bot in the wild (or on the website) are paying some serious coin to snag them on eBay. Fox News reports they’ve been listed as high as $3,000, although the average seems to be closer to $1,000. Still, that’s quite a hefty markup over the $129 retail price.

I know what you’re saying, you can list products for any price you want on eBay, it doesn’t mean people are going to buy them: but they are!



You’re probably wondering where you can grab a pair. Well, so far the only place to get yours is via a Snap Inc. bot. They aren’t available online or in stores just yet. But, if you’ve got enough cash, it seems there are a few on eBay.
