Saving Money on Coke Products

When I purchase Coke products at Walmart, their price of $4.44 is the lowest price in town unless a grocery or drugstore has a special. Since I think that is an exorbitant price, I always price match. The last time I ran out of Cokes, there was no special. I had searched the ads  even though I was ill.

Over a week ago when I rolled my feverish body and one 12-pack of Cokes to the register, I was upset to think of paying so much--$4.44. While I was grumbling about the lack of Coke sales, the cashier told me of a special--$2.50 on 12-packs of Coke products on Friday. This special was for one day only. I had 20 minutes to get Cokes at this price. Sooo, I got 5 12-packs to stock up.

Thank you, cashier. It pays to go to the same cashiers and develop a relationship. Of course, she is nice and friendly, the reason we have a good relationship.

Once I came home, I found 2 12-packs of Coke....grrr.

Now, I have a prescription that must be taken with a carbonated drink. So, maybe it's okay.

I am so ill that I slept from Thursday at 7 pm until late on Friday. Oh, I would get up for 30 minutes on computer and then pass out again. When exbf was here on Thursday, he kept telling me to go sit and rest. He said he was very aware of my labored breathing. I was just out of bed too much.

Still, I stagger around like a drunk.

Monday, he will come again. My power steering is gone, so until then, I rest and don't drive.

Your turn
When you shop for groceries, do you have favorite cashiers who help you save money by pointing out specials that you missed? Have you found spectacular savings on Coke or Pepsi products?

  3. Kim,
    Exbf is coming Monday to help me on his day off, plus he will follow me in my car to get power steering fixed. I need him to fill the reservoir to the top before I drive. I am afraid to drive it without having the reservoir for the fluid freshly filled. Then, on Tuesday I can drive myself to doctor. I bought Diet Coke Caffeine Free for me and just one diet coke for exbf when he is here. Then, I got a regular Coke. .

    My lungs are tight and I am wheezing terribly. Thanks for your concern.

  4. Up home, there was never a change in Kroger cashiers so I knew which ones were bitches, or friendly, or FAST. Our cashiers down here are mostly teenagers and young adults, but somehow ALL of them are SO nice. We even get tipped off when there's a sale going on, and the bagger will go running through the store to get us a duplicate when it's "BOGO".

    1. lotta joy,
      Ours are a mixed bag, so it helps to know their quirks. Some will never learn to be helpful. Too bad for them and others. That is why I have my favorites. Good for you and other shoppers!!

  5. I love Pepsi, but only fountain. I can't stand the taste of pop out of a can (even if I pour it in a glass w/ ice). So I don't earn any sort of rewards. If I re-use my cup at the gas station, I get 50% off the fountain soda price.

    1. tlc,
      There is a difference in the can and glass, plastic, and cups. t least you do save by reusing your cup.

  6. I worry about you. I'm starting to wonder if you don't need a new doctor. It seems that you have been getting worse for some time.
    I rarely drink pop unless I'm sick and then I crave it. I think the sugar kick helps me feel better.

    1. Sonya Ann,
      I am worrying about me, too. Yes, the walking pneumonia started over a month before I realized I was ill. My parents would give us Coke when we were ill. Otherwise, we rarely got more than half of a 6 oz coke.

  7. You said: "Now, I have a prescription that must be taken with a carbonated drink."

    What medicine is that if you don't mind telling your readers? I've never heard of this before.

    1. Never mind my question, Linda. I can contact the pharmacists and ask. Doctors and druggists have been known to fail giving me specific directions i.e. with the Advair discus. I've found it pays to question, question, question! and hope to get a correct response.

      Yes, the price for the eggs & milk are great in comparison to other areas in the country.

    2. This is the first I have seen of questions for this post. I don't remember the name of the med and the bottle is in another room.
