So I was at Target two days ago and noticed that they had their 12 Packs of Coke on a display with a HUGE sign that said “Limited Time Sale” 12 Packs $4.99! What in the world???!!
I almost started laughing… $4.99 is not even close to being on sale for a 12 Pack of Soda. In fact, it is the most expensive price you will pay for it. And yet, Target was advertising it as a “Sale”. (For all of you who are curious, anything under $3.00 rocks- although, I usually wait for $2.50 or less per 12 pack)
It really makes you stop and think about how many things are posed as “on sale” when they really aren’t. With that said, I think I really need to put together a list of price points of items that I purchase. And maybe that will help all of you too. I keep a pretty good list of buy-it-now prices in my head. So I just need to convert them to a post for everyone.
Until then, give an idea of what your price points are for the newbie couponers. What are regular items in your household.. and what price do you wait for until you purchase it?
