Ross and John discuss the ‘biggest rip-offs’ money can buy

Ross and John were taken by an article published in the The Age on Thursday which listed the 13 ‘biggest rip-offs’ money can buy.

So they spoke with its author.

Nicole Pedersen-McKinnon, founder of, was forced to pick just three.

1. Canned oxygen.

‘It’s marketed at Chinese tourists. You get about 250 breaths for $20.’

2. Popcorn at the cinema.

3. Business class airfares.

‘OK, you get fancy food and some sleep but you land at the same time.’
