amazon websiteA recent Amazon class action lawsuit accuses the online retailer of charging excessive prices for basic goods such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer in the wake of the coronavirus.

Plaintiff Stephanie Armas, a Florida resident, says she took to Amazon in an attempt to stock up on supplies in the face of the spreading novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

As a mother of five, Armas says she wanted to purchase toilet paper and hand sanitizer for her family, but was charged “grossly unconscionable” prices for these goods.

Amazon allegedly charged Armas $99 for a 36-pack of toilet paper and $199 for a two-pack of 1 liter hand sanitizer bottles.

Armas argues these prices are far more what is usually charged, with toilet paper typically selling for around $1 a roll and hand sanitizer selling for between $7 and $8 per liter.

“COVID-19’s rapid spread and the very real threat of a widespread quarantine, have caused a run on various personal hygiene products, such as disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer and toilet paper,” the Amazon class action lawsuit notes.

“Unfortunately, retailers, such as [Amazon], are preying upon the public’s fear of a surging epidemic and using COVID-19 as an opportunity to pad profits by way of unlawful price increases.”

COVID-19 originated in Wuhan, China and has quickly grown to be a global pandemic due to its virulence. At the time of Armas’ complaint, the coronavirus had spread to 104 countries around the world – resulting in more than 109,000 confirmed cases and over 3,800 deaths. By Feb. 28, the CDC confirmed the virus reached the United States.

Armas argues that Amazon’s exorbitant prices are not only unreasonable but are also illegal under Florida law, considering the state of emergency.



Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis reportedly declared a state of emergency on March 9 in the face of the outbreak. The declaration aimed “to create a unified command structure […] and allows, if need be, out of state medical personnel to operate in Florida.”

Armas argues this state of emergency declaration also added protections from consumers based on Florida law. Under the state’s laws, retailers are not allowed to charge unconscionable prices for goods or services in the wake of a declared state of emergency.

The plaintiff says Amazon has violated these laws by charging unreasonable prices for hygienic products such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

Armas seeks to represent a Class of Florida consumers who purchased hygienic products from Amazon after a state of emergency was declared in Florida on March 9. On behalf of herself and the proposed Class, Armas seeks actual damages, statutory damages, court costs, and attorneys’ fees.

Plaintiff and the proposed Class are represented by J. Alfredo Armas, Francesco A. Zincone and Eduardo E. Bertran of Armas Bertran Pieri.



The Amazon Coronavirus Class Action Lawsuit is Armas v. Amazon.com Inc., Case No. 104631782, in the Eleventh Circuit Court in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida.

  • Amber March 31, 2020

    It should be in multiple states. When there were no disposable medical or construction masks, we bought the reusable construction project ones. Usually about $13-$14, the best price was $45. Some were charging $189 a mask. Amazon should issue refunds for everyone who purchased price gouge level items. They could even just offer credit, which would cost them less but earn public goodwill.

Without the supplies it risk infections

  • Mary Ramirez March 31, 2020

    I contacted Amazon about a few things I found on the site that I need, but can not afford because of the price gouging. They said they would investigate. I also filled out a form to turn them in for not doing anything. Will have to see when a lawsuit starts because I will be right there to fill out the form.

  • Marie H March 31, 2020

    This is ridiculous and will never go through haha. Amazon isn’t responsible for pricing and already has measures in place to prevent this but vendors are sometimes able to go around them. How irresponsible to not even look into the issue before filing a lawsuit.

    Amazon vendors are selling Kirkland Signature Quinoa single packages for starting at $24 up to $34 as of today. It is $11 plus shipping ordered mailed from Costco, and about $9 in the warehouse.

    Amazon no longer has a link to “report site/vendor/product”.

    I emailed Amazon that it has price-gouging for this product, and no link to report it. I will probably get a polite letter from someone who fails to comprehend the situation, apologizing that “this is not the experience we want you to have” and asking me for my order number.

    I did not order.

    It is patently clear that Amazon has no concern for price-gouging.

  • Jennifer March 26, 2020

  • Tony M. March 24, 2020

    I bought 10 rolls of toilet paper from China for 22.99. That is cray but was desperate. I also bought 10 oz of hand sanitizer (which is also coming from China) for 11.99, it should be about $2.00 at most. I bought 5 of these to help my family and am not ever sure if it is from a flight by night company (as the entire product page is gone) or not. I question if it is authentic and actually has at least 60% alcohol in it.
    Amazon is not selling their products at markups but are allowing third party sellers sell at tremendous markup’s because of our fears. They should never allow this, especially on shipments from overseas that are no longer being advertised and can never be returned.
    I questioned another product that was selling for $26.95, and sent them an email; their repose was lame. I ended up buying from another website for $4.15. It is Lysol Concentrate Disinfectant. I will not mention the company name that was charging $26.95 as it may not be proper and I want to be sure this comment is posted.

Yesterday I went to reorder the same item and price was increased to over $79 from “NaturalGreats” seller less than one month later, obviously due to COVID19. A $21.50 price increase on a $57 item!

All I could find was 36 rolls of Solaris Paper bath tissue (1000sheets per roll) for $77.29. The seller was Randik Paper Company. I had it shipped to mom and she did get it March 21st. However, 2 hours after my purchase on Amazon I went back online to see what was up and the exact toilet paper item I had just bought was selling for $62+cents. I do believe this is price gouging in every sense. But, I wasn’t able to call to spend hours to try and fix it. Hey, my mom was in tears and I couldn’t say no.

  • ron March 21, 2020

    Is the lawsuit against Amazon or it’s 3rd party sellers for price gouging? this lawsuit filed lacks clarity as did Amazon itself charge Plaintiff Stephanie Armas $99 for a 36-pack of toilet paper and $199 for a two-pack of 1 liter hand sanitizer bottles.
    Or, did a 3rd party seller on Amazon charge those fees?
    Is Amazon able to be sued for actions of 3rd party sellers on Amazon?
    review the message and give more insight and clarification?

    • Anne March 23, 2020

      This is a good question, however Amazon should have shut down all the price gouging sellers, so that’s what they could be liable for. Where I live, stores (Big name) were also price gouging, because people were hoarding they decided to double their prices too, what a pathetic thing to do during a crisis where a lot of people are already scared and unsure of the future, people, myself included, losing their jobs and stores decide to be greedy and prey off others, just horrible!

  • JP March 21, 2020

    As a regular Amazon customer since 1999, I was nearly out of Solaray vitamin C that i had previously purchased through Amazon for $20.75. When I selected “Buy Again”, it was only available from two shops, Highland Health Foods and Healthway Shop, for over $35.00.
    I found a REPUTABLE seller NOT on Amazon selling it for $20. But checking the two Amazon dealers later showed that they had apparently gouged customers for their remaining product.

    Germs sanitizer for a box of just 8 for

  • Bonnie Duarte March 20, 2020

    This suit against Amazon is not justified. Amazon did not gouge, it was the retailers that use Amazon that did. Amazon shut each one down as quickly as they could and as they were reported. You should be going after the actual people who listed the items, not Amazon.

    • Judy March 20, 2020

      I Agree with you.. Amazon actually found and shut down those using their platform to price gouge, An example is the brothers in TN who bought 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and were selling them through Amazon for between $7–100/bottle. The result is that their online business was shut down, they were forced to donate most of the remaining supply, around 17,700 bottles, to charity, and they now face criminal charges. Pursuing Amazon is irresponsible and deceitful., Why did you pay that price? Go after the companies that charged that amount. Turn them in to the Feds.

      Boycott Amazon! Tell your family and friends to do the same. Once this done, Amazon will have such a surplus of these goods that they will have to sell them for less in order to get rid of them.

      • Judy Marshall March 20, 2020

        I Agree with you.. Amazon actually found and shut down those using their platform to price gouge, An example is the brothers in TN who bought 18,000 bottles of hand sanitizer and were selling them through Amazon for between $7–100/bottle. The result is that their online business was shut down, they were forced to donate most of the remaining supply, around 17,700 bottles, to charity, and they now face criminal charges. Pursuing Amazon is irresponsible and deceitful., Why did you pay that price? Go after the companies that charged that amount. Turn them in to the Feds.

    You can’t even buy any online as the expensive kinds are sold out as well.

  • Heather Forbes March 20, 2020

    We did not stock up on toilet paper or diapers or wipes or sanitizer and so I figured we would look on amazon and oh not happening those prices are insane

    • Denise March 20, 2020

      Google ways to make substitutes for the things that you are looking for on amazon! Actually check out Craigslist in your area to see where you can get cloth diapers. They take some work to maintain, but they are reusable!

    Amazon and other online retailers are really trying to take advantage of people!! $99 for toilet paper on Amazon…and twice that on Ebay
    We need these basic things and what’s a person to do??

  • Patty Reed March 20, 2020

A 12 pack of tp online went for 245 bucks on e-bay!!! Whats a person like me to do? I need to wipe! Not right to do this at all!!

The regular price at Walmart for a 14 bag is $13.63 per bag. The regular price for the 3.5 lb bag is only $5.63/bag almost 4X the retail market rate is what Amazon charged me.

    I feel that Amazon is directly ir in directly responsible for the spread of the Coronavirus because they have the most to gain and maybe the company doesn’t comply with the very strict procedures for picking up & delivery of packages. This Coronavirus could have easily spread to so many countries in sure a short time frame. Does Amazon train there employees in handling hazardous materials?
    I know with transportation companies like UPS, Federal Express, and the United States Postal service the have in place very strict training and compliance protocols.
    Question, had Amazon gotten away with a multi world monopoly, by spreading Coronavirus globally?

I was willing to pay a little bit more for the 14 lb bag so I don’t have to leave my house. However when my order arrived I received 3 bags that are only 3.5 lbs each that normally sell for $5.63 at Walmart. I’m outraged to say the least!!!!

I have to use unbleached toilet paper due to bad allergy with other chemicals and they had 4 12pk for 500.00 as soon as this started and other items they are doing it. So Amazon owns whole foods and he is pretty much using his power and the price rite now to overcharge people. I didn’t buy toilet paper who could afford it.

    My comments part 2 – I also need to say I’m immunocompromised and at high risk so I wanted to order some things without putting myself at further risk in person at a store. Some things I did buy at the increased price and others, I was like that’s insane and couldn’t order it due to super inflated price. The people who did this should be punished and amazon for allowing it, is just corrupt and be punished. $100 for toilet paper, $15 for mouthwash, $25 for feminine products, $1000 for a bucket of emergency food. Ughhhh I’m so disgusted

  • Lisa March 17, 2020

    Add me. It was everything on amazon that was jacked up in price- mouthwash, toothpaste, deodorant, feminine products, toilet paper, food, Kleenex, paper towel, medical supplies etc. I’ve never been so disgusted.

  • Realality March 17, 2020

    This is so dumb. Let me start off by saying price gouging is wrong. But she seen the price beforehand and she still purchased. Waited for her items that she needed. Then instead of deciding that was too high and returning to amazon. She kept items and started a class action. It is a choice when anyone buys anything. She new the price and paid it. Was there no other place to purchase from. So next everything that goes up is going to be price gouging. As intellegent adults we have knowledge to not price gouge. But also buyer has the knowledge to make a purchase as a legal adult. Upon making purchase we have 2 options keep product or return items if not satisfied. Like i said in the beginning price gouging is wrong but 1/2 of blame should go to buyer. They was aware of price and still purchased.

I paid over $50 for a 10 pack of mask and when they arrived they were a completely different brand and style of masks that were useless for what needed for. Now I try to order food from Amazon Fresh & can”t even place an order. They are delivering to individuals who are capable of going to the stores and leaving the 5% who can’t without any food deliveries because they have no way of prioritizing deliveries as needed at this time. I’ve spoken with a supervisor who basically told me that they don’t care. It’s all about how much $$$ they can make. Even if people die trapped alone inside their residents from starvation, it’s not their problem. They just care about getting all the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Hallelujah!!! I looked for hand and surface sanitizer on Amazon and I was shocked at the prices they were charging for brands of sanitizer I had never even heard of! As a now retired trial lawyer for 30 years I thought “Damn, somebody’s going to call Amazon on that!” I am very pleased that someone has taken them to task so quickly for exactly what I was shocked at. I had some class action experience and quite a bit of experience handling plaintiffs’ consumer fraud and consumer protection act cases when I was practicing, and I would be happy to join the class and/or help out in any way I can.

    I formerly was an Amazon seller. I sold my business in December 2018, but prior to that I was selling on Amazon for 5 years. Amazon had/has the software and ability to monitor ALL sellers, including current pricing and future pricing and how much it’s raised in a 24 hr. period. They have the ability to monitor listings and RESTRICT/deny price increases if they choose. When it came to smaller sellers who didn’t sell in the millions of dollars, they monitored them. But if you were a million dollar seller they did not. Why? Because a million dollar seller generates A LOT of revenue for Amazon. Remember, this is a company with the ability to deliver products in a 24 hour period, and with Drones! Don’t be fooled thinking they don’t have the ability to monitor and restrict price gouging, they do. They choose not to in some cases because they, Amazon, would lose too much revenue. They want you to think they can’t monitor everyone who sells on Amazon, that they just don’t have the manpower. Really?!!! Think about it, they have the ability to run a website with millions of sellers, selling products from all over the world, collecting and processing payments for millions of sellers, and offer 1-2 day shipping!
    Amazon could have stopped the gouging in an instant if they wanted to. Amazon has always, and will always, put their profits first, even if it means people will be taken advantage of. I witnessed it first hand, as a seller. They allowed hundreds, yes hundreds, of sellers to sell products claiming to contain certain ingredients which they did not, products like skincare, supplements, baby products, etc. When in fact these products did NOT contain the ingredients customers wanted and were paying for, instead they contained ingredients that were NOT disclosed to the customer. Ingredients that are extremely harmful if you have cancer, or are allergic to them, etc. It was brought to Amazon’s attention, but they looked the other way because if they acted and required these companies to show proof of their claims/ingredients, they would have lost millions. So they looked the other way, to protect their bottom line. It’s easy for sellers to prove if their skincare is USDA organic, for example, they get a certification from the USDA that they can provide Amazon. It’s easy for supplement companies to show proof of third party certification of the product and its ingredients, they get a certification they could show Amazon. Do you think Amazon asked for these certifications from the companies? NO, they did NOT. But they DID allow the companies to advertise and make claims of ingredients, etc., which customers relied on when making buying decisions. No questions asked by Amazon. Be careful, always vet the company you’re buying from and be sure you know the origin/source of the products you’re purchasing if you’re putting them on your skin or into your body. I do buy on Amazon, it can be a great experience, you just need to know what you’re buying and from whom. And don’t fall for the lie that Amazon can’t control pricing – they can if they WANT to.

I didn’t have time to do their job. This is happening on ebay also & they don’t care either!! It is insane. $50 for a can of Lysol. $135 for 6 tubs of Lysol wipes with 2 days left. When I emailed the seller-they stated pretty much that it wasn’t ‘their’ fault after explaining anti trust laws & creating a monopoly for high prices!!

Now they were stuck with over 17,000 products. They are donating them. Why they can’t be looked at? Yes those prices are high now but it ain’t all on Amazon. IMO

  • Cyndy B Wilber March 17, 2020

    Amazon is a marketplace representing many individuals who really are price gouging, which is illegal during any crisis situation (such as this pandemic). But Amazon is actively trying to do something about it by shutting these sites down. Walmart.com is another such site. Tried to buy shelf-stable Hormel lunch/dinner meals (usually around $2 each) and they had retailers on their site selling them for $40 a piece! Walmart also needs to be proactive about these crooks.

    And also… writing “Add me” does nothing for you claim. This is for information ONLY.

    • Anne March 23, 2020

      However, Amazon should have shut the price gouging sellers down, in a crisis that shouldn’t be allowed and feel Amazon should be responsible for not letting their sellers/vendors do this. Also, please be careful in how you word things, there’s a lot of people who did actually purchase items at the high prices because of many reasons, they couldn’t find them in their local stores, they’re elderly and afraid to go anywhere, they’re desperate because they had none and really needed it, so by you saying you weren’t stupid enough to buy is really hurtful to the people who did during this crisis, everyone should try to help one another not take advantage of them or make fun of them. I would never pay for the overpriced items either because I got laid off because of all of this and can’t afford it, nor would I ever give someone my business that price gouges, but I also won’t judge someone who did because I don’t know their story.

    I purchased a particular type of Kleenex from Amazon on March 10 – 6 boxes for $10.64. They accepted the order. The shipment is delayed with no definite delivery date given. I was curious so I looked up the price today, March, 15. The price today is $18.98 a 56% price increase. If this isn’t price gouging I don’t know what is. If the manufacturer set the price then they benefit not only by the increase in sales but also by the exorbitant price increase. If Amazon set the price then obviously they are benefiting unfairly. Paper goods and hand sanitizer seem to be commodities that are especially needed at this time for basic sanitation needs to help slow the spread of Covid19. I’m just an old boy on a fixed income but this seems unconscionable to profit greatly from a tragedy such as this.

    Amazon is a marketplace – meaning, most of the items you buy from Amazon are not being sold from Amazon themselves, but rather vendors (vendors can be anybody, from an average joe to a large retailer) using the marketplace. I have not see much gouging from Amazon themselves. Mostly it’s coming from the average joe’s who sell through Amazon. But if you think Amazon is bad – don’t even look at eBay!
