soda/pop/coke 4th of July deals - top this one

$2 for a 12 pack of coca cola brand sode/pop/coke, no limit on amount, for every 4 packs you buy, you get a 24 pack of Dasani bottled water.

Holy shit I loaded up. Ended up with a ton of varieties of over 20 12-packs (think 24) and 5 24-packs of Dasani.

This is at Byerly's in Minneapolis in case anyone is interested.

Can you top that?

What's the shelf life of this stuff? hehe

If you got five 24 packs of Dasani, you got ripped off if you got twenty four 12 packs of Coke.

Kmart. Buy 4 12 packs of Coke products for $10, get a $10 Gift Card by mail.

Shouldn't this thread be in the Hot Deals forum?

Is hot deals about bragging? I didn't start this thread with the intent to inform anyone of any hot deal.

Steve, I probably have more than that, it took me a long time to put it in my basement, not sure of specific numbers.

Actually true. Your store has lots of good prices. I'm a fan.

I get Dasani when we have meetings at work and it's free. I'll grab a couple 'to go' mostly for the bottle.
Last good deal we got was 4 Pepsi 12 packsfor 10 bucks, get one free. I'm not going to pay for water [unless I'm at the beach or something] so that's not a big draw. I did pretty good at Kroger that time, I ended up saving something like 65% by buying only stuff on clearance or club card discount. Then went to Super WalMart to buy the rest of the stuff at non-nauseating prices [bratwurst, for example, over a dollar cheaper].

I pick it up free at meetings/events. I"m a grad student, I got no problem bringing it home for later.

I knew a girl who'd get free coke all of the time....she was a bit crazy, but for free blow....why not?!!

(kidding)

I hear if you let pepsi know what coke is going to do next you'll get more than just soda.

I dunno, it couldn't be worse than the drinking fountain at the gym. I didn't even know about the Dasani thing when I went up to the register, until the cute checkout girl let me know. The best part was making all the busy bodies who go to Byerly's (upscale grocery store) angry and seeing their faces during checkout. I got lots of special attention by the checkout girl.

I bought it for guests, that's why I went for the variety. Won't drink much, if any of it, myself. Hopefully.

Let me know what you think of it and then I can send you something to compare it to -- a bottle of Crystal Geyser spring water, bottled water that isn't just bottled tap water like Dasani.

The last time I bought Crystal Geyser I got 105 500ml bottles for around $9 and I didn't have to get any soda.

I also have a bunch of those coupons and have used them to get 50 free 2 liters so far. I'm starting to get bored with Coke products. They need more variety.

Can you use them all at once or should you call ahead and find out first before you get mad at them on the spot when they won't allow it?

Also, I must have gotten 10 different flavors today. What's your favorite flavor?

I just use one coupon for five free at a time. Don't want to be a glutton.


Coke Classic is the best-calories notwithstanding.

[Butters] that's a pretty good deal [/Butters]

My local store had five 12-packs of Coke, Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper etc. for $10. Your deal is better, although I hate Disani water. I am a Poland Springs guy. That is currently $3.99 for a 24 pack, although I usually get it for $6.50 a 24 pack from Staples for the free delivery.
