Yet Another Unit Pricing Example . . .
Last night we had a craving for Philly-style cheesesteak sandwiches. I did the run to the supermarket, and secured the needed items. Once again, I got another example of unit pricing discrepancies . . .
The seven pack of Steak'ums was actually $2 cheaper by the unit, than the 16 pack. One would think that the larger, economy size would be less expensive-- not so. I am beginning to think this pricing scenario and others like it that I have discovered, are by design. A design that takes advantage of the public's "economy size is cheaper" perception.
Bottomline: Watch out! Always, always compare unit prices!
