    Default a devious mind

    Hannaford's (grocery) in New England had a deal, for every 4 house brand products you buy, you get a bounce back coupon for $1 off (up to $10). So I got to thinking, with my devious mind, what is the smallest and cheapest house brand product you could get? I came up with a 6 ounce cup of yogurt, probably about 50-60 cents.
    If you lived nearby, you could come over once a day, buy 40 of the small/cheap items and get your $10 coupon.

    Any ideas? I don't go shopping that often and not in every aisle, so I am sure I missed something.

    Anyway I got $9 off on my last trip, yay me!!

    I think I would take some time and walk up and down all the aisles and just compare the prices of items. Don't buy a bunch of things you don't need or want - but I live the concept!

    sadly the promotion has ended. I only go shopping about once every 3 weeks, and the coupon expires before then, so I bought all my house brand stuff first, got the coupon, then went back in and bought the other stuff I needed.
