No one loves a sale more than I. The feeling of getting quality goods or services with a discount thrills my heart. Moreover, thats money I can use in another area, such as buying gas for my car. However, when the sale you sought turns out not to really be a sale at all, someone must bring it to our attention.
Such is the sale on Kellog’s cereal at Shoprite this week. Shoprite has small boxes of Raisin Bran & other cereal on sale, 4 for $1.66 each, and you must buy 4 boxes. This would be awesome if the bargain was as great as it seems, however, as math would have it, not so much. We see $1.66 and the name Kellogs and we lose our minds. Or, is that just me? In any case, Do The Math. For $.86 more with this sale, you can actually buy the economy size box that has 2 big bags that almost triples the amount of Raisin Bran.
Granted, i hate buying cereal on sale sometimes, because it really seems as though there is less sugar and flavor and yes, I am a cereal fanatic, so I wouldn’t know. I would suggest you buy the economy box of either Raisin Bran, Corn Flakes or other cereal. A treat woukd be that Kellogs does offer a three in one box where you get the Sugar Pops comma the Fruit Loops, and Apple Jacks cereal for $6.99 or $7.99. Check your Sunday newspaper for coupons and you may get your Kellogg’s cereal for far less.
I’m just sayin’
