Target Charges You More For Free Bonus

Reader Michael sent us this picture of a 16-ounce bottle of Crest whitening rinse and a 32-ounce bottle that says “BONUS 100% MORE FREE.” Turns out by “FREE” they mean “$1.15 more.”

Our favorite part of this, of course, is that the $5.99 markup is the sale price that Target concocted in its ongoing quest to offer low prices. Just think, when this sale’s over next week, “FREE” is going to be a lot more expensive.

Thanks, Michael!
