Revision as of 03:42, 14 November 2008

Where

On a normal pop run, you will likely be going to Real Canadian Wholesale Club As far as we know, it has the best normal prices around unless someone has a Costco Card.

What

Generally, buying ~$200 worth of pop will last the CSC about half a term or less, especially shortened at the beginning when we give out pop to new members.

Assuming you're buying $200 of pop, the author's suggestion is: (please modify according to patterns noticed and your intuition)

  • 5 x 24-pack Coca-Cola (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: apparently people really like Coke over Pepsi)
  • 5 x 24-pack Dr. Pepper (@ $7.99 ea.)
  • 1 x 24-pack Canada Dry (@ $7.99 ea.)
  • 1 x 24-pack 7up/Sprite (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: likely one will be cheaper by a dollar, buy it)
  • 2 x 24-pack Barq's (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: Barq's is the only one with Caffeine, buy it)
  • 3 x 24-pack Rainbow Pk (@ $7.99 ea.) (Note: someone has specified they want more Soda, I increased ratio, feel free to drop one)
  • 1 x 24-pack Five Alive (@ $10.99 ea.?) (Note: Just some juice-like canned pop)
  • 1 x 24-pack Nestea (@ $11.99 ea.)
  • 3 x 9-pack Sunlike (@ $3.?? ea.) (Note: Sunlike or Fairlee is cheapest for juice, normal deal is at 3 plus packs bought, and I'll note later which one is cheaper per bottle (not that it matters much since it's a difference of like a cent))

Total + 13% Tax: ~$195

If you don't think this can fit in the back seat of your car, it can, trust me, I drive a small car. Trunk or front seat space is nice to have though.

Deals

Deals are found by looking at the weekly flyers of:

Normal Prices
Item Cost/Can (Incl. 13% tax) Sale Price Profit/Can
Pop 12-pack @ $4.50 $0.42 $0.50 $0.08 (Just for comparison, don't you dare buy...)
Pop 12-pack @ Grocery Gateway >9000 $0.50 -$0.02? (...pop at this price or at Grocery Gateway)
Pop 24-pack @ $7.99 $0.38 $0.50 $0.12
Pop 24-pack @ $10.99 $0.52 $0.75 $0.23
Pop 24-pack @ $11.99 $0.56 $0.75 $0.19
Juice 9-pack @ $3.45? $0.43? $0.75 $0.32? (Profit is per bottle)
Deals to look out for (in order of decreasing awesomeness)
Item Cost/Can (Incl. 13% tax) Sale Price Profit/Can
710ml 6-pack @ 1.99 $0.19 $0.50 $0.31 (Calculated per can assuming bottle sold at $1.00)
710ml 6-pack @ 1.99 $0.19 $0.375 $0.185 (Calculated per can assuming bottle sold at $0.75)
Pop 2 x 12-pack @ $4.99 $0.23 $0.50 $0.27
Pop 3 x 12-pack @ $9.99 $0.31 $0.50 $0.19

Additional Notes

Damn contents table won't show up unless I add another section, something to do with the wikitables I think. =P
