I'm so pissed. I let folks in on the deal for KCCC at stockngo for $12.99. Went to the site a week later and it went up to $13.99. Thought hmmm, well that's strange. Must be due to increase in orders. Well checked today and it's up to $16.99. I'M SO MAD. This makes perfect sense to any of you business majors out there but I wasn't expecting it. And to you all who have been quietly ordering for years and are suddenly blown away and wondering what happened to your sure thing gold mine, I'm sorry.:(

    Yes they've been steadily going up on the kccc price. I'm glad I was able to get it early on.

    If they're going to do that, they might as well take it off of their website. Their whole purpose is for buying cheaply in bulk...and one dollar difference is not worth waiting for shipping...they fail IMO

    :sad8: Terrible. I wonder what is Kinky Curly's problem?

    I'm glad they still have the 20% off sales with the free shipping. It's still a good deal that way.

    I call bullsh*t on that. Kinky Curly shouldn't care what they sell it for, because the price Stock N Go buys it for doesn't change.

    And they had changed the price to $13.99 before going up to $16.99, so what, KC told them that wasn't good enough? KC monitors their prices like that? Utter bs. The Stock N Go staff has given out some pretty shady answers before regarding minimum number of pieces. They said that they had minimums because the products were already packaged like that....who packages items in packs of TWO? gtfohwtbs...

    Oh and furthermore, on the site it says KCCC retail is $19.99, which it is NOT. At Whole Foods and places I have seen it, it's $17.99...so they basically want people to think they are still getting a better deal than they are. Shade.
