Once again, Lowe’s blows

The indicator light on our Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator water filtration system has changed from green to orange, indicating it’s time for a new filter.
I remembered that they are kind of pricey, so when I went to Lowe's yesterday and bought a cyst-reducing (not eliminating) refrigerator water filter for $48.69 I almost screamed at the price.

I came home and found the non-cyst reduction version on for $24.99 with free 2-day shipping. Paying extra for cyst reduction is stupid unless every drop of water we consume goes through the fridge filter, and even then it only claims to "reduce" cysts.
So, I ordered the unit and returned the Lowe's purchase this afternoon.
