【看CP學英文】連鎖美式賣場好市多(Costco)販售品項種類包山包海,再加上不少民眾認為高CP值的好物和退換貨機制等,頗受國人歡迎。近日就有網友分享賣場內所販售的「瑞士原裝黃金條」兩年前的價格,沒想到才短短過了22個月,價格就飆漲了1.5倍,原PO看了也忍不住感嘆「千金難買早知道」。

Costco is known for selling a wide variety of items with a return and exchange system that is quite popular among Taiwanese. 

Recently, a post shared on Facebook showed the astonishing 1.5 times price-soar of Swiss gold bars sold at Costco over the past two years. 

 該名網友在臉書社團《Costco好市多 商品經驗老實說》貼了一張比對圖,畫面中可以發現原PO拍下好市多販售「瑞士原裝999.9壹公斤黃金條塊」照片,其中一張是2018年11月6日時所拍下,當時售價是1229999元(122萬9999元),而今年9月7日他又到了賣場,發現黃金價格已經飆漲至1854499元(185萬4499元)。

The social media user posted on Facebook group “Costco merchandise real talk” (Costco好市多 商品經驗老實說) a comparison picture, showing a 2018 photograph of Costco selling “Swiss original 999.9 one kilogram gold bars” with the price at around NT$1.22 million.

This year, the person went back to Costco on Sept. 7 only to find that the price of the gold bars have soared to NT$1.85 million.

仔細一算這兩年之間漲價幅度來到62萬4500元,平均一年就漲了31萬元,一算這價差就讓原PO也忍不住傻眼,無奈的表示「千金難買早知道」,同時好奇2年前是否已經有民眾看準商機早就買下黃金了。而該篇貼文曝光後,不少網友也跟著「望洋興嘆」,在貼文下方逗趣回應,「我不差那60幾萬元的價差,我差的是那122萬元買金條的錢」。

The post wrote that through simple calculation, one can see that the price rose around NT$624,500 in two years’ time, and lamented the fact that he didn’t buy it sooner.

Many took to the comment section and wrote, “A word before is worth two after”, while others poked fun at their own expenses and commented, “I’m not sad about the NT$600,000 or so loss, but rather the lack of NT$1.22 million to buy it in the first place.”
