- 3M N95 face masks are typically for sale on Amazon only to hospitals and government agencies, but there’s a rare opportunity right now for anyone to buy them.
- Shipping is delayed, but you can also get 3M KN95 face masks on Amazon if you hurry and they’ll ship out right away — they’re just as effective as N95 masks, but they’re manufactured with different guidelines.
- Purell is also in stock right now on Amazon if you hurry, but all of these face masks and hand sanitizers will undoubtedly sell out very soon.
Ladies and gentlemen, today is a day of rare opportunities. First of all, Purell hand sanitizer and Purell wipes are both in stock right now on Amazon and ready to ship. That seriously almost never happens, since it’s typically reserved only for hospitals and government agencies. Hurry up and you can order individual 8-ounce pump bottles of Purell, 6-packs of 4-ounce bottles of Purell, 3-packs of 1-ounce bottles of Purell, and individual 1-ounce bottles of Purell.
Somehow, some way, you’ll also find Purell wipes in stock if you hurry!
As if all that wasn’t crazy enough, there’s are a handful of even rarer opportunities right now on Amazon. That’s right… 3M N95 and KN95 face masks are both available right now for anyone to purchase!
This definitely seems like a mistake on Amazon’s part, since 3M masks are typically restricted. Unless you can prove that you work in the purchasing department at a hospital or a government agency, you can’t buy 3M face masks. We dug deep through Amazon’s site, however, and we found not one but THREE different listings for 3M face masks that are available to anyone and everyone. These will obviously sell out fast though, so you’ll need to hurry if you want to get in on the action.
Starting with masks that ship out right away, there are two different listings for 3M 9542 KN95 face masks right now on Amazon (here’s an alternate listing for when those sell out). KN95 masks from top brands like 3M filter at least 95% of microscopic particles like the novel coronavirus, so they’re just as effective as NIOSH-approved N95 masks that you hear so much about. The difference is you can get these 3M KN95 masks for $5.60 each on Amazon instead of spending $12, $15, or even $20+ per N95 mask that might not even be genuine.
If you do want N95 masks, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that 3M 8200 N95 face masks are available to order right now on Amazon, and 20-packs only cost $68.95. That’s just $3.45 per mask! The bad news is that you won’t receive them anytime soon because shipping is delayed. It probably won’t take anywhere near as long as the shipping estimate Amazon is quoting right now (they’re typically very conservative), but it could still be a while. That said, doctors are saying we’ll need to keep wearing face masks for at least a year, so you might as well stock up now while these N95 masks are in stock at such a good price.
Last but not least, if you’re looking for genuine 3M face masks that aren’t on the verge of selling out, you can score 3M respirators along with NIOSH-approved P95 and P100 particulate filters on Amazon just about anytime you want these days. And of course, if you want face masks that aren’t on the verge of selling out, Amazon’s best-selling 3-ply coronavirus face masks are only $0.50 each and you can get popular MagiCare KN95 face masks for $3.50 apiece.
