We Went to the 4 Corners of the Country Seekin’ Sales Prices for Jul 4; A Bud 12-Pk For a Penny? Yup (excerpt)

Did a lousy Memorial Day and soft yr-to-date scans really rev up Jul 4 specials, especially for ailin’ Bud/Bud Light?  We grabbed weekly flyers from 4 stores that could not be much further from each other: Tops in Buffalo, NY; Albertsons in San Diego, CA; Winn Dixie in Miami, FL; Safeway in Seattle, WA.  Each had Bud deals.  Like what?  Like $12.99 Bud/Bud Light 30-pks in Tops after $7 mail-in rebate.  That’s right next to $15.99 30-pks of PBR, Busch, Natty Light and Mil’s Best.  Zip 2,200 miles cross-country to San Diego for a hot penny deal.  Used to be 1-cent on top of a 24-pk price could get you a bag of chips or maybe even a case of water.  But at Albertsons this weekend, if you buy 2 twelvers of Bud brands at $9.99 each, you can get the 3d for a penny.  Even better: back east in Miami, your third 12-pk of Bud, Miller Lite, Coors Light and/or Michelob Ultra is free.  But upfront price is pretty rational $11.99 - $13.99.  Jet-lag it out to Seattle and 2d Bud/Bud Light/Ultra 18-pk is 50% off front-line of $17.99.
