In general, none. But there are exceptions.
Robinson-Patman governs discriminatory pricing of "like kind and quality" among commodities. (And this is not "commodities" like wheat, corn, etc; it's any good that is considered a commodity good.)
In the general sense what they're doing is NOT against the law. That's why I commented on it -- that people are "surprised" when they put up with things like 10,000% differentials in medical pricing was the real stunner.
