Amazon you missed me on this one…

I have an ad for some new service Amazon has called subscribe and save. It is a service to order food and other type items like that through Amazon and have it delivered for free. Well I decided to look up an item I just bought last night, my favorite cereal… Cocoa Pebbles… Yes I am a goof but I still like them. Here is the link inside of Amazon for that


Now this is, according to the ad I have, supposed to be 10-15% cheaper than the everyday price… So what do they have here


5 x 17 ounce boxes for $27.10 which works out to be around $0.32 an ounce… This seemed high. I looked at the box of Cocoa Pebbles I got from Meijer last night and it wasn’t on sale (they often have 2 for 1 on the Cocoa Pebbles but I must have missed the most recent sale) and it was $1.98 for 13 ounces… That comes out to about $0.15 an ounce… No wonder shipping is “free” from Amazon on this service…
