Default Extract and All Grain Kits Priced The Same at MoreBeer?

Hey guys,

Made an observation tonight that some of MoreBeer's extract kits are the same price or even cheaper than their all grain counterparts. I don't understand how that could be possible. Links below to the kits in question.

Isn't raw malted barley always going to be cheaper than malt extract? This isn't meant to be anything against MoreBeer, I'm just interested to see how an extract kit could possibly be cheaper than its' all grain kit.

Why don't you e-mail them and ask? Could be an oversight.

My only guess is that they are making up for shipping.
