I just happened past a grocery store that had their Pepsi sale advertised: buy 2, get 3 free; so I thought I'd go in and check it out.

This is the first time I'm posting one of these, so I'm not sure if I'm including too much info, but anyway, here it is:

5 12-packs of Diet Pepsi--Reg. Price $27.45. I paid $10.98 saving $16.47.

Ritz crackers were also on sale. Roger loves them. I had a coupon for .55 cents off 2 so I bought 2.
Reg. Price $7.98. I paid $3.21 saving $4.77.

I bought milk because we needed it. It wasn't much of a sale: 2 for $6, but the most milk ever goes on sale for is $2.79 and that's never whole milk.

So, 2 gallons of milk--Reg. Price $7.58. I paid $6 saving $1.58.

And what was great was that at the bottom of the receipt they print up my Total Savings Value which was 51%. I paid $21.16 and saved $21.24.

Not too shabby.

EXCELLENT sale on the Pepsi products!!! I wish we would have a sale like that! The best sale we have around here right now is $2.75 for a 12 pack


Good job!

I don't even usually pay attention to this store because it's ALWAYS overpriced. I walked up and down theri aisles looking at their "sale" prices and most were ridiculous and not even a sale.

Regular price here with no sales is in the 4.59 range, so with tax they're 4.91! That's why I *only* buy on a sale!!

Yeppers. Our 24 packs are 6-something and a better deal, really (if you divide per can prices) but still too much. I just wait for sales or go without.

We LOVE our caffeine free pepsi, I couldn't imagine going without it. We always buy on sale too though and if we HAVE to we will buy coke but we definately prefer pepsi.
