Target's Degree Deodorant Pricing Scheme Rewards Those Who Pay Attention

Gavin wants to know what’s up with Target’s deodorant pricing.

Can you explain to me Target’s bulk pricing on their Degree deodorant? As you can see in the attached picture – I could buy one deodorant for $1.82, or a two-pack for $3.89 from my local Target here in Chicago! Am I paying for the plastic they use to keep them together? Neither one is on sale, this is their regular pricing.

This is either Target trying to take advantage of people not paying a lot of attention and fairly assuming that two together will be cheaper than buying two individually, or just bad pricing!

People write us all the time about Target doing this with all sorts of products. We’re pretty sure they’re banking on you not paying attention.
