I was over at Target today to get some T-shirts and saw something interesting on pricing. On one brand the prices were all the same, but the quantities of shirts varied by size. If you bought small, you got 6 plus 3 free. Medium and large were 6 plus 2, XL was just 6, and with 2XL, something I’d never seen before in T-shirts, you only got 5 for the same price.

I guess it makes sense, sort of, but I’d never seen this before. The labor is pretty much the same regardless of size, and I can see a little extra in materials on the bigger shirts, but I didn’t think it would be enough to warrant giving away free shirts. Is this punitive?
