    Today, FL store coupon print outs had deals on meat. Perhaps they will print out for the rest of the week.

    tc35d - oversight - sorry. I'm a Fresca girl, truth be told. :-)

  • tc35d Jun 5, 2014

    on the web page to the left there was Pepsi 2lt for .99 then below it a few lines down there a Coke deal for 1.00 that says "good price"... I guess whoever edited this page likes Coke over Pepsi ;>)

    From what I saw, maybe the middle of the week. Guessing Wed-Thur. Each location might be different tho. I am going to remind myself to check that location again next Wed to see if it's a pattern.

    Is there a particular day of the week that is best for finding marked down meats at FL?

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jun 5, 2014

    jtlnsw - Thanks for sharing! I always scope out the marked down meat section as well when I am at a grocery store.

  • jtlnsw Jun 5, 2014

    In FL last night to see quite a few packaged meat items marked down. Perdue whole chicken from $12 down to $7ish. Johnsonville Breakfast sausage marked to $3, some were $2.70.
