3.0 out of 5 stars Loved them until the price hike, April 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clif Bar Builder's Bar, Variety Pack, 9 Chocolate and 9 Chocolate Peanut Butter, 2.4-Ounce Bar, Pack of 18 (Health and Beauty)
Don't know who to fault with this, but a price jump from $18 for 18 ($1 per bar) bars to $25 for 18 ($1.38 per bar) bars without notice on the Subscribe & Save plan is really not fun.

I am canceling my S&S order today and will go back to brick and mortar purchase as it is cheaper to buy them individually than it is to buy them by the box from Amazon. (local stores have them for $1.25 per bar)

Too bad :(

I couldn't agree with this more! I bought at least two of these a month and I won't be buying anymore until the price goes back down, its way too expensive on Amazon now. They're cheaper at whole foods now.

Also cancelling. The lack of an appropriate email indicating a price hike is disappointing, coming from Amazon.com.
It is definitely cheaper at Publix and Walmart now, plus I get more flavors.

Yeah, what the heck?!

yeah this is a shame, I actually did not notice until my box was about to ship. Going to cancel and go back to store bought as well. Seems like a relatively expensive price increase like that should stop your subscription until you accept it again with an email warning. Pretty shady.

I also canceled my S&S. I was just taking a look to see if the price went back down. I buy this same box at BJ's Wholesale for about $19.00.

Agreed - I've bought tons of these on S&S. Just now noticed the price hike though - that's very shady of Amazon not to notify us of a price change, and it lowers my view of the company considerably.

I cancelled my subscribe and save for the same reason - Didn't even get the second order. Very disappointing, as this was my first experience with Subscribe and Save and I will be very wary of doing it again. I feel like I will have to watch it like a hawk, instead of just being comfortable that the things I choose to have auto-shipped will conveniently just come.
