This Week's Sales
Seems finally there are some deals to share!
At Costco they have 3lbs of bananas for $1.69!!
Also Cheerios are 1Kg for $4.99
Their sales usually end Sunday.
This week they have the spend $250 get $25 PC GC
I have found it really hard to buy $250 worth of groceries and find it makes the 10% off advantageous. Because I buy loss leaders and groceries on sale, when I check prices of the filler items I would buy to reach $250 I just don't usually find it worthwhile.
That being said there are quite a few good deals and if you buy $250 worth it pays off!
Stewing Beef $2.98/lb
Lean Ground Beef $1.98/lb(limit 4 club packs)
Broccoli .96 each(they were nice big bunches!)
Snow Peas 200g .98
Field Cucumbers .88
NN Cheese 800g $7.43 limit 1
NN Apple Juice 1L .88
NN Pineapple Juice 1L $1
Purex TP 15 DBLS $5.98 limit 2
I spent some quality time at the grocery stores yesterday....one thing I did was hang out in the TP aisle, trying to make sense of the deals. Charmin is on sale and I had coupons so I carried this Purex over to the Charmin and NN section. When I compared sheets on the roll and size of sheets and # of rolls the Purex was still the best deal!
Seafood Medley 340g $3.88
Dole Classic Mix Salad $1
NN Pasta 2Kg 2/$5
Armstrong Cheese 750g $6.97
A couple of things.....there is a buy $40 worth of P&G products and get a $10 PC GC. I thought I would check out the large Cascade dish washing. If I was to buy $40 worth(4 boxes) and get $10 back, so pay $30, it still would be more expensive than what it would cost for the same 4 boxes at Costco! So, I don't think I will be participating.
What is it? The scanning code of practice is when something is listed as one price at the shelf and comes up another at the cash register. Want all the details? Read here .
When I did my shop yesterday I was unable to stand and watch the till as the place was a zoo and I needed to get my stuff packed up before it became one squished pile at the end of the belt....can you relate? Well, when I was all done I stood to the side and looked over my bill. One of the items, rang in at $3.17, but I had bought it because at the shelf it said $2.49 for the first 4. I wasn't in a rush and so I lined up in the customer service area. I explained to the teller what had happened. She went to the product's aisle and brought back the tag from the shelf. I got my item for free! I was sad to think of all the people who were overcharged all day! She changed it after my purchase! It pays to pay attention!
