Extra $, TT Soda savings

August 14th, 2008 at 05:41 pm

Yay! I got another ING referral bonus today:

+$10 for Downpayment fund!


I don't drink a lot of soda . . but my mom does! She's addicted to diet Coke. So I got an email from Tom Thumb and one of the deals was buy 2 12 pks of Coke, get 3 12 pks free. I stopped by after work yesterday, and for a total of $12, I bought 5 12 pks of Coke - 4 for my mom, and 1 for me.

Today was my stepdad's birthday, so I called to wish him a happy bd -- and also to tell him about the deal. Smile He's very much like me in that he likes to find ways to save money wherever possible.

The thing I was wondering though -- have 12 packs *really* gone up to $6??? I don't remember the last time I bought a 12 pk, so maybe they've been that much for a while .. but OMW that is a LOT of money for soda.

Today at work I was making some copies at the end of the day and just happened to glance in the trash can. There was an empty 20oz bottle of fanta -- so . . I absconded with the lid. Smile (mycokerewards)

I was supposed to do my training today after work for the gym. But E called me and said that he'd had a new client who wanted to train at 5:30 today - so would I be willing to train in the morning. Of course, I said yes. Smile

So I'll do my training in the morning, and have my first shift in the afternoon! Look out - here I come - ready to make $6.55/hr! So at 3.5 hrs, plus maybe another 30 minutes training =4 hrs = $26.20. -- Almost a tank of gas! LOL

I will have to find out if they pay weekly or monthly and if they do direct deposit. I hope they do dd, but I kind of doubt it.

    Good luck with your first shift tomorrow... exciting. Oh - and where we are, I think the 24 packs of name brand drinks are about $6.50... so the 12 packs are probably around $4.25. That is still a pretty good deal though!

    We just bought 4 12 packs for $10. 5 for $12 is still a good deal.

    Thanks Silly and NJDebbie - So, I was right in thinking that $6 is way overpriced for a 12 pk. Of course this is Tom Thumb we're talking about (i.e. Safeway in other areas) so I'm not exactly shocked. Smile But the sale price of $2.40/12 pk *is* a good deal.
