Walmart, Kroger Raise At-Home Covid Test Prices

A three-month agreement to sell the kits “at cost” expired recently




After an agreement with the White House expired, Walmart (Bentonville, Ark.) and Kroger (Cincinnati) raised the price of Abbott’s BinaxNOW at-home Covid test kit, reports CNBC.

Under the agreement announced in September, Walmart, Amazon and Kroger agreed to sell the tests “at cost” for three months. The tests, which were priced at $14 last month, were listed on the Walmart website yesterday for $19.88 and at Kroger for $23.99 and were marked “sold out” on both retailers’ web sites.

“We have seen significant demand for at home Covid-19 testing kits and are working closely with our suppliers to meet this demand and get the needed product to our customers,” a Walmart spokesperson said.
