Although it's infuriating, it comes as no surprise. I remember being outraged when my sugar bag price went up but the size of the product went from a 5lb. bag to a 4lb. bag. Then Breyer's ice cream did the same thing, followed by Oreos, Kraft cheese and many more.
Some people need a sympathetic pat on the head ... with a hammer.
yes its getting really annoying but is it just me or is this only happening to mostly the drugstore stores? cuz i still see many other store carry the same brand that cvs has shrunk size
CVS - Tide is now the small 30 loads powder
CVS - Tide Liquid bottle the Green Spring something used to be 32 loads 50 oz now is (25 loads)
then it was Huggies and Pampers Diapers
they Shrunked the Huggies boxes and the price stays the same $19.99 Sale price
and disappeared the Pampers small boxes that used to be $19.99 Sale price
brought in the just 8 diapers more into a box of Pampers and priced it at $24.99 Sale price
at Smart foods - Tide 40 loads is $9.99 they even put it on clearance for a while for $9.99 or it was $9.99 but i see that the clearance tag's are gone about 5 months ago
they shrink the packs and with it even the coupon value tide has been going down and only once they brought it back up almost and its gone again!!
plus pampers diaper coupons whats with the $1/2 bags or 1 box? what kind of coupon is that?
i stopped buying pampers after the low value coupons
the next time i buy it when the value of the coupons is $3/1 box or $2/1 bag
now those are the coupons i wait for until then its huggies for me if i find good coupons..
It is only at the drugstores. Wal-Mart still has the 50 oz Tide HE, but CVS has 40 oz now.
Rite Aid still carries the 50 oz. bottles. I think it's just CVS I've noticed that carries the 40 oz. bottles.
The downsizing of products is something P&G is nototrious for. Shrinking Tide, shrinking Dawn bottles to 9 oz., less diapers in Pampers bags/boxes, shrinking Gillette razors now. I'm glad I got some Gillette Fusion ProGlide manual razors with the 2 cartridges when I did. I haven't seen $4 coupons on those in months and I haven't seen $4 up or ECB on the Gillette razors to go with a $4 manu q for a while.
I just noticed a few months ago that Pillsbury cake mixes are significantly smaller than other brands. Come on, now. Why mess with something that gets used in baking and is often added into other recipes where exact measurements are important? Same thing with shredded cheese. You gotta watch 'em.
