We write a lot about fuzzy math here at Consumerist, mostly because if you’re observant, you can often get what you want for a lower price than perhaps the retailer intended to sell it for. Case in point: Consumerist reader Tyler was gearing up to order pizza online from Domino’s the other night, and noticed some bizarro pricing.
He writes that he saw several that were interesting to him and his wife. But wait — how much should they pay for what they wanted?
However, should we take the 1 large 3 topping pizza for $9.99, or the 1 large 3 topping pizza for $12.99? How about the 2 large 1 topping pizzas with a 2L of Coke for $19.99? Or should we scroll down and take the 2 large 2 topping pizzas with a 2L of Coke for $18.99?
Pizza economics is a complex and dark science, I suppose.
It’s always good to have options, and if Domino’s doesn’t mind accepting $1 less for two pizzas that have more toppings than the more expensive deal with soda, or $3 less for the same exact pizza with an equal amount of toppings, so be it.
