Tide costs $43.69

Is it just me or does that seem like an awful lot to pay for 150 ounces of laundry soap? I did not ship any back this year because they are carrying it at the Commissary, now. That is almost twice what it costs in the States [$22.56 at Lowes Foods].

Originally I paid $45.84 [more than twice what it costs in the States!] for it. I went to go do laundry yesterday morning and saw the price on the cap, 162.9 S
R - round it off - 163 SR [the .10 halala difference amounts to one-third of a cent or something minimal like that]. I was overcharged by 8 riyals. 8 riyals! $2.14. Hey, $2.14 is $2.14. So, when I went to the Commissary to get Diet 7-Up yesterday afternoon I took the Tide and my receipt, with me.
Darn Skippy I got my 8 riyals back. And made sure to speak to one of the managers so that it gets changed in the computer. $2.14. When you have to spend that much on laundry soap you do not want to be over charged by even a few cents.
Oh - and I tried a different brand of Laban. Nada. Their milk is wonderful. Their juices are the best. Their Laban? Not so much. It was awful. Sticking with Activia from now on.

  1. We don't get the liquid Tide here. We did for a minute then it went away. An 8 kg bag of powdered Tide is 63 SR.($16.58) What I find disgustingly over priced is cereal. A box of Special K w/Almonds is 33SR. So is a box of Oatmeal Raisin Crisp. iasked my DH for a few boxes for Valentine's Day as I refuse to buy it. I'm just way too cheap.
