  • This will definitely come as a surprise to many people out there, but Amazon now has listings for 3M N95 face masks and even better 3M N100 face masks listed that anyone can now purchase, not just hospitals and government agencies.
  • These NIOSH-approved 3M N95 masks will sell out fast, so we’re also going to share some of the best alternatives with you.
  • Also of note, there’s a whole bunch of Purell hand sanitizer in stock that anyone can now buy from Amazon, including a bulk case of Purell that’s being sold at a deep discount directly by Amazon!

Amazon’s listings for N95 masks and other NIOSH-approved respirators are only supposed to only be available for hospitals and government workers to purchase. Interestingly, that’s not the case right now. Somehow, genuine 3M N95 face masks and 3M N100 face masks are in stock right now on Amazon and they’re available for anyone to buy. In case you’re unfamiliar with mask ratings, N100 face masks filter at least 99.97% of microscopic particulates compared to at least 95% for N95 masks. The 3M N100 masks in stock right now at Amazon are expensive, but they’re actually $30 cheaper per box than they were last time they popped up on Amazon. As for the 3M 8511 N95 face masks in stock today, they’re only $99.99 for a box of 20, which is far less than the $18 to $25 per mask you’ll pay on eBay and Craigslist. In either case, be sure to cover the valves on these masks if you want to be extra cautious for people around you.

All of those masks will undoubtedly sell out quickly, so we want to give you some other options as well. You’ll find that more 3M N95 masks and 3M KN95 face masks are in stock today, though they’re obviously sellout risks as well. You can also find plenty of 3M respirators in stock right now at Amazon, as well as NIOSH-approved particulate filters to go with them.
