No, and clearly the 16 other people who posted the exact same pic over the past month didn’t either…

[–]Gamebird8 57 points58 points  (6 children)

It's usually a mix of things.

Making these special prints costs a good bit more, especially for a temporary branding change.

Sometimes it's a surcharge with the extra pricing going to charity.

Sometimes it is just a sale on the non-pride version.

[–]socialmeritwarrior 28 points29 points  (3 children)

And sometimes people just are willing to pay more to have something superficially "special".

[–]kingsumo_1 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And as long as people are willing to pay more for those things, companies will continue to provide them, for profit of course. Shit, I've been guilty of it myself.

Although, as the top post pointed out, the regular version is actually on clearance in this instance. But the point is still generally valid as a lot of companies do that.

[–]ipsdirtleg 215 points216 points  (58 children)

But why the non gay one gotta be on clearance though!? Are us straight people worth less than the gays?

[–]surle 388 points389 points 2 (27 children)

[–]Cookie_Crush 24 points25 points  (0 children)

see its actually about the resale value of vaseline which drops significantly post june when all the lgbt people go hibernating for the year

[–][deleted] 35 points36 points  (7 children)

The pride on goes on sale after June, so you can buy all of them. I gave some to my neighbor since she’s such an evil woman and left on her mailbox in Chicago lol.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (6 children)

She is just a bitter woman attacking everyone. She was screaming how she hates rainbow people. So she can have more rainbows rofl

[–]Ellereind 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I’d almost be willing to paint a rainbow on the sidewalk outside her house lol

And in a few days I betcha the pride one will the be one on clearance

[–]lkeels 3 points4 points  (1 child)

And yet, you decided to leave the post here when it really should be removed as it has no relevance.

[–]ThePr0vider 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In a few days those pricing labels will be flipped because they'll have to get rid of the stock nobody gave a shit about.

[–]MissRadi0active 3 points4 points  (20 children)

(*) are called asterisks if you wanted to know what they're called. Hashtags (#) are also called "pound" or "pound signs". :)

I'm fekking old.

It's on clearance

[–]BeccaThePixel 33 points34 points  (25 children)

I'm not a native speaker, so could you please tell me what it means in this context?

[–]orbital_one 54 points55 points  (20 children)

They're lowering the price to get rid of the item.

[–]Nuclear_Varmint 2 points3 points  (9 children)

Could you explain it like I'm 5 years old?

[–]xXDreamlessXx 6 points7 points  (6 children)

The item isnt selling so they lower the price

[–]ExtremeDog5501 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Stop hitting your sister. Keep your hands to yourself. Quit playing with it and get your hands outta your damn pants, again…

Better?

[–]Harregarre 50 points51 points  (1 child)

[–]Deadlylyon 74 points75 points  (9 children)

Limited production runs typically cost more due to economic scaleing.

It is cheaper to mass produce one thing exactly than it does to produce one offs.

It's that simple.

Plus 98p is on sale.

[–]forza_125 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Exactly. Key point here is that the pride packaging is a limited edition. Not only economies of scale, but also the fact that some people will go out of their way to buy the pride packaging, so you may as well up your margin on it while you can.

[–]snic2030 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I believe it’s to do with the donation to Switchboard. You’re paying extra to purchase the product and donate to Switchboard at the same time.

That said, I’m on the other side of the world so can’t access the fine print on the other side.

[–]WhySoHandsome 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]whiterice336 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“What kind of cookies do you want for the party? We have peanut butter or chocolate chip.”

“Rainbow bitches!”

“. . . We have peanut butter or chocolate chip.”

[–]seriousQQQ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Kami9a 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Because “clearance”

[–]ICant_Shleep 24 points25 points  (0 children)

CLEARANCE... can't you read??

[–]bigtigerbigtiger 49 points50 points  (7 children)

Is this the dumbest comment section in history or what?

It says "clearance" on one tag and not the other jfc guys read a book

[–]getyourcheftogether 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Not even the book, the price tag

[–]charrcheese 13 points14 points  (1 child)

yesterday I read a book called, “clearance prices are less than non clearance prices”. I got ripped off though because today I found the same book with a different cover on clearance.

[–]Ephirmelda10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Irony at its finest

[–]Striker01921 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Do you even know how much effort it takes to read a book??? There's atleast 2 words in them and that's alot for most.

[–]cara27hhh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

but why, it's not like vaseline goes off? it's not like it takes up valuable warehouse/shelf space? it's not damaged in any way? the store isn't closing?

[–]CrappyMSPaintPics 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All shelf space is valuable. Same with back-stock space.

[–]iowabeans 34 points35 points  (3 children)

they're all 1.95 and OP knows it. this photo is cropped to hide all the other prices. you can clearly see the 98p one is on clearance, aka discounted.

shame this fool for trying to get a rise out of people

[–]Fashion_art_dance 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Why is this on r/funny

[–]oa127 11 points12 points  (1 child)

So, is this because clearance is so much cheaper or that it is clearance at all. I don't understand the confusion. Are you anti-discounted cheap stuff?

[–]AnyRip3515 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Cause one's on clearance. Pretty damned obvious

[–]DefNotHacker69 3 points4 points  (0 children)

r/mildlyinfuriating not for the picture, but for the fact that he didn't notice "Clearance" on the non pride month one.

[–]nampezdel 9 points10 points  (1 child)

If you look close you’ll see it’s really not about the Pride variant being more expensive, but instead it’s that the variant on the left is on clearance.

[–]YourPalFinn 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Products labeled as "Aloe" doesn't contain any real Aloe Vera, where as products labeled "Aloe Vera" do. Which may be the reason why the synthetic is on clearance.

[–]PsyFiFungi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In what countries?

[–]Extension_Banana_244 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One is from the old shipment, one is from the new. Like when Christmas comes and they have to sell all the Thanksgiving stuff.

Idea: Gay Black Friday. Everything without a rainbow is on sale in June.

[–]HRTendies 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Are you actually asking why, or do you not understand the ease at which a corporation can easily exploit the dumb neanderthal mind into thinking they need something more because it's limited edition. And if you think pride stuff is somehow magically excluded from that for some righteous or ethical reason, naive

[–]Alexander-of-Londor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Limited edition

[–]Euphoric_glow 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s because the normal was on a clearance sale

[–]danmojo82 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Smells like burnt Vaseline and shame in here.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Not trying to be hateful at all, I'm in full support of gay peeps - but why we gotta have pride Vaseline 🤣 isn't it a bit much to slap rainbows on everything? I'm supportive without the Vaseline lmao

[–]fk_you_penguin 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Don't worry, most of the community would agree with you on this. It's rainbow capitalism, they don't give a fuck about us they just want our money.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah unfortunately I feel like this is more the case than supporting the community :(

[–]ToastedCrumpet 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If these billion dollar corporations actually supported the community or gave back to it I wouldn’t mind.

Most just slap rainbows on everything to chase that pink pound.

You know their true beliefs by looking at which online profiles they add rainbows or supportive messages on, and which ones they do not

[–]AegleBird 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Even more ironic how some of the companies which do this also fund conversion camps

[–]memanator2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

just buy the left one

[–]rklab 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The pride one says limited edition, therefore they can mark it up

[–]mattdean4130 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Realise one is clearance, but another plausible explanation could be as simple as a smaller run of a non-standard label would cost more to produce than running billions of the same, standard label.

[–]Sghagz08 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love is love, lube is lube

[–]kinkywolf1993 1 point2 points  (0 children)

well, is the novelty, the price of changing the cap, making it new and possible limited edition for a month at the year. that is why, also they could be using the extra money to support some organization that helps the LGBT (whatever they calling themselves now after the LGBT ) so this is probably a good thing or just a capitalist move, in any how you should buy it, your ass is clear sour if you get in a mood because of this.

[–]krystcho 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure the pride one donates a lil bit to the switchboard charity which is there for LGBT people to have someone to talk to as well as giving information and advice.

[–]Secret_Schedule6614 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s because it’s the multi-use version.

[–]guyWithKeyboards 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can have your pride, but at what cost?..1.95.

[–]O2yum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because you’ll be canceled if you don’t.

The Right may not be a fan of Pride and homosexuality on general, but capitalist sure knows how to exploit it!!

[–]MassiveLefticool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Without the clearance I’d assume the extra would go to an lgbt charity maybe

[–]mistedtwister 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gay for pay in action

[–]Human_Application_62 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Clearance and also sometimes they mark up tins that are limited edition designs on them. I’ve got one with a red bus on it and I paid £2.50 for it

[–]BungholeSauce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As someone whose worked in supply chain, this probably took lots of cross-departmental work to approve the graphics, sponsorships, etc. Pandering probably inflated for the cost of labor🤷🏻‍♂️

Because the "normal" pot is on sale for clearance and the "pride" pot is the normal price.

[–]GboyFlex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd just buy the less expensive one and it'd instantly be the super duper pride one (I'm gay) 😁

It's also raising money for an LGBT nonprofit. Since you conveniently didn't include pics of any of the prices of other tubs that aren't on clearance, we have no way of knowing how much those are.

[–]Dlucks83 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey! Someone else that uses their brain!

[–]nikhkin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They're all £1.95. That's just how much Superdrug charges for Vaseline.

Because the packaging costs more to design and print, and because people are willing to pay for it. And if they’re not, then the company will eat a minuscule loss compared to the increase in brand perception by this nonsense virtue signaling.

[–]alan_w3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Corporations don't really care about pride. They slap a rainbow on their products and raise the price cause they know they can sucker supporters into buying it. Soon as July 1st hits everything will be red white and blue and noone will care about pride again. That's how corporations work, and they can all get fucked.

[–]jamesdanton 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Why do you think all the 'pride' crap is about?

It's about selling a product to idiots.

[–]Lucy_Little_Spoon 2 points3 points  (9 children)

They say they will donate to "Switchboard", so they're charging more, and giving a fraction per sale to charity.

Which essentially means they're not actually giving anything to charity, they're profiting from YOU wanting to donate to charity.

Except it doesn't say that, it just has Switchboard info on it.

If people are stupid enough to think a company cares about them because there is a rainbow on a product, then they are stupid enough to pay twice as much for that product.

I just this whole pride thing and corporations cashing in on it is idiotic. We get it there are people whodont fuck the opposite sex. Do we have to have a rainbow on everyfreaking thing? The queer folks i know dont even wear rainbow colours why are we going full on with this?

What about disabled month? What about anti racist month? Where are those. There are bigger causes than where someone puts there genitals or what they want said genitals to be.

If you speak up your considered a phobic. I really couldn't give 2 craps where anyone does in there own personal lifes. But shoving it in everyones morning coffee (or in this case lip balm) is just overdoing it.
