So everyone, it’s time to play What’s the Better Deal!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything… I’m just going to do some maths for you because I am so sick and tired of asinine schemes to confuse consumers into paying more for less.
So at Breck’s you can get 25 Discovery Dutch Iris bulbs for $5.99, or 50 bulbs for $13.59, or 250 bulbs for $39.99.
Something seems off about that.
Lets see, if you ordered two 25 packs of iris bulbs you’d pay $11.98. Which is $1.60 less than if you ordered a 50 bulb pack.
That’s not odd at all!
Let’s take a look at per bulb pricing…
|Breck’s Iris Bulb Packs||Price||Price per bulb|
|25 bulbs||5.99||~ 23 cents|
|50 bulbs||13.59||~ 27 cents|
|250 bulbs||39.99||~ 15 cents|
So overall, a 250 bulb iris package is the cheapest on a per unit basis.
If you do not need 250 bulbs then it’s cheaper to order multiples of the 25 pack.
Maths! Saving the day once again!
