Is there a word to refer to a set of products sold together, with a specific price?

For example:

  • Product A is sold 10 dollars
  • Product B is sold 10 dollars

Product A and B are sold together for 18 dollars. How can we call the result of this product grouping?

As an alternative to bundle, consider package.

It's quite common to say, "This is a package deal", meaning you get a discount for buying all the related products. Or "This comes with the package," meaning this product is included at no extra charge if you buy the others. Etc. –  Jay Apr 12 '12 at 14:44

You can say the two products have been bundled together. Product bundling is a commonly used sales strategy.

(Free Dictionary) vb. (Business / Commerce) (tr) to give away (a relatively cheap product) when selling an expensive one to attract business several free cassettes are often bundled with music centres (Webster) n. a package offering related products or services at a single price

Thanks for the information. I'll use package as this is travel related. I just realized Expedia mentions travel packages on their website. Thanks anyway for your time! –  gyin Apr 12 '12 at 11:08
    
No worries! Yes, package makes more sense if you're talking about products offered by a travel company. –  Milind Ganjoo Apr 12 '12 at 11:12

I think "bundling" is more commonly used as a verb, while the result is a "package". As in, "We bundled A and B together to make our Super Discount Package." Perhaps because "packaging" already is commonly used as a noun meaning the box or other container that the product is sold or shipped in. People do sometimes talk about the result of bundling being a "bundle", but it's not as common. –  Jay Apr 12 '12 at 14:50
    
Maybe it's not so common. I definitely have seen it used as a noun for tech products. "Cost of Photoshop + Acrobat bundle = $200" –  Milind Ganjoo Apr 12 '12 at 15:06
