Being a frequent shopper I notice things like downsizing and price inflation and I was particularly disturbed when i went to buy a box of Life cereal (my favorite cereal) and it was about the size of a snack pack box of cereal and If that was not enough to piss me off, it was also five dollars!! Also, recently microwave burritos went up! AAAAH! NOT MY BURRITO'S! They conveniently went "on sale" for $2.50 when that was the normal price! Do they think people don't notice?

then they come up with some bullshit excuse like "oh, it's inflation... high cost of living" whatever.

"Buy one box of cereal half off and geht a second for ONLY doulbe the original price."

I used to like Life cereal... but now it's just like real life... it sucks :thumbsup:

In all seriousness, they run the store, they have the right. However, doesn't mean you can't kill them all.

:thumbsup:

I like Marshmallow Mateys.

It's like Lucky Charms, except cheaper. Hooray for colleges that cost 30 grand a year!

you probably do... 5 bucks CDN for a box of cereal, 3.50 goes to the fucking logo. it's the same with nike... or any big corporation... a lot of the money you spend goes to the logo.

Another thing they pull is the old "Value size " scam. If you look at some of those items that are bigger and labled as value size. and break down how much you're paying per unit of measure, you may actually be paying more per ounce than if you bought the smaller size.
The idea is, they know you're going to realize that it's bigger therefore the price is higher. But they slip in a few cents extra, figuring you won't bother to do the price per unit of measure, calculation in your head.

See, I guess the question is- is life cereal being more honest by making their box smaller or gypping us by making the box smaller AND putting less in?


either way your gonna get less cereal.
