I usually use this space to share a good deal or interesting product, but sometimes avoiding mistakes is just as important as finding a hidden gem. In this case, I’ve seen a pretty huge blog promoting these AmazonBasics Permanent Markers as a good deal, but I think this is a good case of buyer beware. I reviewed the AmazonBasics gel ink pens and they weren’t great, and if you look at the reviews of these on the Amazon site you will see a lot of disappointed customers with pictures to back up some of their experiences, so my experience says that even at only about $5 for 24 markers, these AmazonBasics Permanent Markers are a DO NOT BUY.
