They had $1 or $2 dollar off coupons on the bags when I bought them last. I got to the checkout and noticed the bags were about three dollars more than before. Oh well, as the price of gas increases the price of shipping increases, the price of labor increases, the price of powering the manufactuing machine increases. I noticed, am not happy, but am not surprised.
http://www.petfooddirect.com has a 22% off coupon today and tomorrow. 33# is on sale for $24.69 (no tax of course) Can't buy it in a store for that. Save the gas and buy from them, I have always gotten great service and the exp. date is always far out.
