THIS POST IS NOT ADVERTISING OR PRICE COMPARISON OF EGG PRICES AMONG HYPERMARKETS OR ANY OTHER PLACE, JUST THE CALCULATION METHOD THAT I AM CONFUSE...
I was shopping with my little Princess few nights back, and I wanted to buy some eggs. Upon arriving at the egg’s section, I just took a tray of Grade A egg. However, my little Princess refuse to go away from there. (Read HERE) Since I am free to browse around, I found something amiss….
Let the picture do the talking… and please advise me if this is the current practise in the market coz I seldom buy eggs in hypermarket…
If none, then let me clarify my queries…
Grade A:- If 1 egg cost RM0.32, isn't 30 eggs should be RM9.60? (RM0.35 extra)
Grade B:- If 1 egg cost RM0.30, isn’t 30 eggs should be RM9.00? (RM0.65 extra) and 90 eggs should be RM27.00 (RM1.35 extra)?
Grade C:- If 1 egg cost RM0.31, isn’t 30 eggs should be RM9.30 (RM0.05 extra)? and 90 eggs @ RM0.29 is RM26.10 (RM1.35 extra)?
Grade D:- If 1 egg cost RM0.28, isn’t 30 eggs should be only RM8,40 (RM0.65 extra)?
So, I put back the tray of Grade A eggs, and leave that section..and frankly speaking, it took me not one glance, but a real close reading before I put the eggs back. I don’t think I be charged ‘extra’ from my usual ‘ah pek’ if I buy from him…
Please clarify for me… and how many of us actually walked away after taking a tray of 30 eggs without noticing the ‘extra’?
I have yet to check other hypermarkets on this pricing, and maybe if anyone of you bought any eggs recently want to share your price?
