Old Navy disappointment

Hello, y'all. I'm pretty new to the community and this is my first post so I hope that I'm not out of line here.

How do y'all feel about Old Navy? I see a lot of Old Navy love here and while I wasn't as enamored as some, I was always pleased that they offered affordable and trendy clothes for plus sizes.

I was pretty bitter when they moved to online only and stopped shopping there until I recently received a gift card from a friend. I went online and was so! excited! because I saw that they were having a basics sale -hooray! Alas - I soon saw that there were crazy pricing differences between the plus sized and "regular" sized clothing on the site - a green v-neck t-shirt with no embellishment is $5 on sale from $10 for a skinnier gal, but I have to buy 2 in order to even be eligible for a discount and then my plus size discount is $10 from $14. I was sort of shocked and saddened to see that skinny gals can pay a mere 40% of the purchase price while I have to pay about 70% of the original purchase price -and only if I buy multiple items. I wrote them a letter and got a form letter back "we've passed your feedback on! We value you as a customer and hope you continue to shop with us!"

I guess I was just wondering - is this sort of sizist pricing common? I don't mind paying a bit more on the regular purchase price, but surely the discounts should be the same across the board, right? Like, why is it 60% off t shirts -EXCEPT FOR FATTIES?? Am I being too sensitive? Has anyone else noticed this?
