So Giant Food is having a "buy $20 of GM products get $10 off your next order" deal, and the $20 threshold is triggered by the SHELF prices, not the sales prices. Lots of bloggers have covered the deal, so I won't go into details. Except for this one:
Five boxes of Cascadian Farms cereal @ $4.29 (shelf price) each = $ 21.45
Minus sales price ($3.29) = $16.45
Minus peelies on box ($1 off two boxes) = $14.45
Minus $10 off next purchase = $4.45 for five boxes of organic cereal. That's 89 cents / box (savings of 80%).
I've done that three times, and today I went back and did it twice more with a twist:
Four boxes of cereal + 2 Betty Crocker cake mixes (shelf price $1.79) = $20.74
Minus sales prices (BC = $1 / box) = $15.16
Minus peelies on cereal = $13.16
Minus $10 off next purchase = $3.16 for four boxes of cereal and two boxes of cake mix.
Yeah, I'll be doing that a few more times. Today. :-)
