Are you sure it is the exact same item? Loctite makes several similar but not identical products. The sure way to tell is the UPC code.

But sometimes there are relatively big differences between Big Orange Box and Big Red & Blue Box. It happens from time to time on lots of goods.

Amazon's prices for Loctite sealants & caulks are often twice Home Depot's, for identical product. Most of Amazon's prices for building materials & supplies are very expensive.

I think it is part of the retailers battle with each other. Low margins on some products and higher margins on others. I believe Lowes will match the published price of others. Lowes also has a discount program for pro card holders.
