  • Amazon’s best-selling 3-layer face masks have been back in stock for a while now, and so has extremely popular hand sanitizer with the same formulation as Purell.
  • In addition to masks and sanitizer though, there’s another product that everyone has been searching for lately and having trouble finding: webcams.
  • After months of disappearing inventory and price-gouging, Amazon finally has affordable webcams back in stock right now and ready to ship.

Among our readers, there is absolutely no question that face masks make up the top-selling category of product right now — and it just so happens that Amazon’s best-selling face masks are back in stock today, in case you’ve been waiting. It’s pretty easy to understand why they’re so popular since the CDC recommends that people wear this type of face mask for protection anytime they leave their homes. They’re not as effective as medical-grade face masks, of course, but they’re more than good enough to protect you and those around you if you also practice social distancing and good hygiene.

Apart from face masks, the second-most popular type of product people want right now is a webcam. Most nonessential businesses are still closed at this point, and if they’re smart they’ll probably be closed until at least sometime in June. That means you’re in store for a whole lot of video conferencing in the weeks and potentially months to come. Even if you don’t use video for work or school, there’s a good chance you use them to chat with family and friends. Tired of holding up your phone the whole time? Don’t worry, because webcams are finally starting to arrive back in stock at Amazon.

Head over to Amazon’s webcam page to scroll around and check them out, but there are a few in particular that are shipping out soon at prices that are actually quite reasonable. If you’ve shopped for a webcam anytime recently, then you know that prices have been gouged for months now. A simple webcam that might have sold for $30 or $40 earlier this year can now easily cost $150, $175, or even more. Amazon isn’t doing anything to stop it, but luckily we’ve found a few options that are in stock right now at reasonable prices.

The Logitech C270 Webcam is one of the most popular models out there, which makes sense considering how big Logitech is in this space. This model is ready to ship right now, and while prices were over $200 at one point, it’s back down in the $50-range for the time being.

If you want a solid upgrade to a 1080p model and you don’t care about the Logitech brand since they’re pretty much all on par anyway these days, the Weicha 1080P HD Webcam with Microphone is in stock for $49.99 and new orders will be delivered this week. You can also get Angetube 1080P USB Webcam for $48.99 right now and it’ll ship out almost as quickly.
