  • NIOSH N95 mask prices are still severely gouged by many sellers around the internet, so our readers have been looking for other types of masks instead.
  • Beyond price-gouging, hospitals and frontline workers are also reportedly running out of N95 masks.
  • Our readers are loading up on Powecom KN95 masks and black AccuMed face masks — both have been flying off the shelves lately.

New coronavirus case numbers are finally starting to drop after the scary records we saw in early January. That said, hospitalizations and covid-related deaths continue to soar in regions across the country, and The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the inventory of crucial N95 masks in the US is running low. Despite the fact that they’re a bit easier to find online now than they were a few months ago, our readers have been stocking up on other types of masks instead of paying gouged prices and taking supply away from hospitals.

First and foremost, Powecom KN95 masks and black AccuMed face masks are both back in stock at the best prices of the year. The latter has been flying off the shelves at Amazon for months now, while those AccuMed masks are somewhat new but have rocketed to the top of the list among our readers.

You can easily spend $100 or even more for a 10-pack of some types of masks because prices are so inflated, but Powecom’s KN95 masks retail for $45 per 10-pack. These days, however, you’ll only pay about half that much.  You can also get masks from the same brand with elastic headbands instead of earloops.

On top of all that, foldable AccuMed face masks that our readers have been swarming Amazon to buy are now available in three colors — including pink and black! Just like the Powecom masks, you can get these respirators with either elastic earloops or elastic headbands that many people find to be more comfortable and secure.
