Pepsi Deals and How to Make Them Better

I just picked up 5 Pepsi 12-packs at CVS, where the 5/$11 sale ends today.

However, the same sale will be going on at Jewel and Walgreen's starting tomorrow. And at CVS, they're selling four 12-packs for $12 with 3ECB back, which is really close to the same deal if you think about it.

So I wanted to share a way to sweeten the Pepsi deal, no matter where you do it.

1. Several newspaper inserts last week had coupons for "buy 4 Pepsi 12-packs, get 1 free." Here is a pic of one of the ads (I found the pic link on If the coupons don't have store-specific printing on them, you should be able to use for any of these deals.

2. You can print out a coupon at for a free 2-Liter of Sierra Mist Free (i.e., diet) with the purchase of 3 Diet Pepsi 12 packs.

3. You can print out a coupon here for a free 20-oz. Sobe for each ONE Pepsi 12-pack you buy.

I kind of missed out on these. I had totally forgotten about the coupons I'd seen in the inserts for my local Fair Share Foods and Pan's Foods, and although I really wanted to use the Sierra Mist coupon, my CVS doesn't carry the diet version. I don't want the regular version because I am always trying to stock up on that stuff for when my parents visit. Diet Peps, Diet Coke, Sierra Mist Free -- these are the price I pay for free babysitting.

Speaking of online coupons a good one appearing on both and right now is $1.50 on Huggies Little Swimmers. I'm gathering as many of those as I possibly can right now, because I expect that swim diapers will go on clearance at the end of the season, and then maybe I can get some free with the coupon. For next year. And for swimming lessons, if we do any.

And, you know, in case we win a tropical beach vacation for four. It could happen.
