Snapchat’s Spectacles glasses haven’t been on sale for 24 hours yet, but people are already reselling them online for hundreds of dollars.
Postings on eBay Thursday list Spectacles for up to $900 – well above the eyewear’s $130 retail price.
Snapchat parent company Snap Inc. started selling Spectacles out of a surprise vending machine near its headquarters in Venice Beach on Thursday. The company plans to introduce more pop-up vending machines throughout the U.S. in coming weeks.
Snap has said that it will have very limited supplies of Spectacles initially, and demand for the camera-equipped frames is clearly high. Around 3:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, Snap representatives told people in line that the company is already sold out of Spectacles. Actor Andy Milonakis was apparently able to get a pair, dropping into line and allegedly snagging them from someone in line for $500.
