View Full Version : Discount deals on DPSU fridgepacks?

11-02-2006, 09:28 PM
My local grocery chain (owned by Kroger) is running a deep discount deal this week on 12-packs of the DPSU sodas: Diet Rite, RC, Crush, Hires, etc. Does anyone know if this is a DPSU thing, Kroger thing, the bottler, or all of the above? Is this USA-wide?

Anywayz, I am drinking RC at a 3/$10 discount which I haven't seen for years.

You consider 3 for 10 a deep discount?

Out here in So Cal we get those 3 for $8 quite often, last week we had them 4 for $10. Had Coke stuff for that price last week too.

Chicago has much better sales. LOL
5 fridge packs for $10 to $11.
The major grocery stores have cubes on sale for $4 to $6.

These sales rotate between the major grocery stores. I have NEVER paid full price for soda pop in a Chi Town grocery store. The last time I did so was just before the soda pop price wars started moons ago. smile.gif

i also are used to 5/$10 here at our woodmans store... 3/$10 is unheard of here

Yeah they have 5/$10 here quite a bit too. I love it how they make you think you have to buy 5 in order for them to be $2 a piece, but you only have to buy 1 if thats all you want and its still only $2

Woodman's has the best deals on groceries and alcohol hands down. I drive the extra 20 minutes just to go there.

I go to the Kenosha and Carpenter Ville Woodman's.LOL Omega I drive about and hour to shop at Woodman's. Like you said...Woodman's is awesome!

Some cities are meant for volume where its easy to get with dense populations.. and some cities are meant for profit.. all depends where you live and the corporate decision for that region.

Now I must say from everything i've heard with woodmans, god bless them for practically giving things away to drive you there so they can make the money back on other items..

Well that's really not the case. :(
Woodman's complete selection of goods is discounted. Woodman's does not have all that many loss leaders. What they do have is mass volume turn over and a vast selection of brand and quality items. The entire store shares this kind of discount strategy.

Beleive me I would not travel and hour to save a few dollars on just a few loss leader items.LOL In general I save around 30% to 40% off my normal Chi Town weekly shopping bill.

3 for 10 is a pretty much low end everyday price around here. normal avr between 3/10 up to 4.29 for an EDLP. sale price are anywhere from 5/10- 2/7. we do not do much cube ads anymore, about the cheapest they will ever run anymore is $5 a case.

yeah, i dont feel like digging it up, but in spite of the new walmart that we are getting in town, our local paper here did a report, where they went to all the local grocery stores, and bought the same items at each store, and reported the prices. woodmans was the cheapest on each item. for the record, Pick-N-Save was the worst.

Thx for replies. Should say that the Big Two do run well-advertised 4/$10 and occasionally 5/$10 deals in the same grocery stores.

It's just the DPSU soda discounts which seemed unusual to me, and I was wondering if others had seen it in their area, and whether it says anything about the future of their non-Dr Pepper soda line. smile.gif

The Kroger-owned chain in COlorado, King Soopers,usually sells Full Service's 12packs at anywhere from 3/$10 to 5/$10, and that's usually the cheapest you'll find them on sale at any stores around.
