What's the deal I just went to Woodman's and paid $5.79 for a 20 pack of Coke Zero. I didn't see any 24 packs and this was for Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, etc. When did this start?

Thanks for the heads up. I will be going to the Kenosha,WI Woodman's next week. The new 20 pks sort of reminds me of the lyric from the American Pie song...."The day the music died."
What a nice deal for the loyal Coca Cola family of soda pop drinkers...NOT!!!!!

We recently ran an 4-day ad with the Piggly Wiggly stores which they were selling them for $4.99; It went over pretty well actually. Wal-Mart used to carry this package, probably about 10 years ago. Would you like to pay $7.29 (Sale Price) for a 24 Pk or 5.99 (Sale Price) for a 20 Pk? Both come out to about $0.30 a can, so it does not matter.

What does matter is that I used to pay $5.79 for a 24 pack.

The one place that I've seen these, they also offered the 24pk as a step-up from the 20pk. See picture below:

Also, they were available in Coke, Diet, Zero and Sprite.

We have 20-packs of Coke, Diet, Sprite, Caffiene Diet in Canada. The price of a 24 was almost $10 so they cut out 4 cans and kept the original 24 price. People don't usually notice. We sell more 12 packs in our store anyway since the almost always have them on for 3/10 or 2/7 etc.

Its the slow sales of take home package, or should I say the increasing price of take home. Coke switched packages, and previous to Coke, Pepsi has already switched packages. 8 packs and 18 packs for Pepsi. Giving an everyday price of $2.99 in the grocery for an 8 pack. The smaller packages at more competative prices are being desiged to look more appealing on what the customers will spend their $5 on.

$5.79 is a bargain basement price for a 24 pack, that couldn't last forever. Either the price was going to go up, or they were going to switch to a 20 pack.

Our 24 packs are currently $6.98 at Walmart, which is one of the few places we carry them. I figure we'll switch back to the 20 pack eventually as well, I remember them when I was a kid.

Pepsi is doing this in Atlanta, GA. Their c-store accounts have their 8pk and also in Wal-Mart (Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mtn Dew, Dr. Pepper)

These are much like the ones that CCBCC had out a few years ago for c-stores.

A lot of companies are thinking people are stupid and wont notice the packages shrinking while the prices are staying the same. For example a 99 cent bag of Doritos now has 1.75oz when they use to have close to 3. In my area Pepsi is doing the 20 packs and charging 24 pack price. My question where are the bold letters saying 16.6% less.
