    Is there a real difference ?
    The price difference here is $30.00 per yard

    magic's web site says its way less corrosive . Is this true?
    If so i would say just that is worth it to me?

    Yes,there's a real difference.Magic will work much faster than straight salt,will work down to -35* as opposed to app. 20* ,and you only need app. half the amount needed compared to straight salt.It supposedly is non corrosive and environmentally friendly but what I believe happens is when the magic separates from the salt,say during a rain,well then now you have plain salt,which of course is corrosive.I use the stuff exclusively.
