    Last week, I bought some Splenda granular at Sam's Club. It consisted of 2 bags in a box (each weighing .6 lbs) priced approx $8.88. Next to it was a single bag of Splenda granular with a total weight of 1.2 lbs priced approx $11.88. I was flabbergasted! I thought maybe I was seeing things. I saved $3 by buying the one with more packaging?! Where's the hidden camera?! Surely they aren't selling the same product for two different prices!

    How odd..???? When I worked at a retail store, I always had to argue the point that when something came in a XX% free container it should cost the same a regular size... Hence the reason it was FREE.... Most of the time I had to go above my immediate supervisor to a manger to get my point across...

    Maybe the one size is being discontinued, and it was discounted to reflect that?
