    I understand that they are something a store sells at a loss in order to drive traffic into the store, but I don't know specifically what they are. Can someone give me examples?

    I have noticed the frequency of time betwenn loss leaders is increasing. Once example I have noticed is Hunts Spaghetti Sauce. This used to be a store coupon item every 7 to 8 weeks for .69 or .79. Now, I haven't seen it on ad for months. My stash is down to only 3 cans. I keep thinking...

    Our grocery stores around here have not been having many good loss leaders lately it seems. My pantry is getting low as I've not been doing much stockpiling--waiting for some good sales. I'm just wondering if anyone else is noticing this in their area. Dixie Jean

  9. Question and Answer
    I'm not smart in the frugal world. I'm trying but I have lots to learn. So, How do you know you are getting a loss leader? I understand stores advertise stuff to get you in, but how do you know it is a loss leader? Is there a formula or a way to calculate that the item is a loss? Thanks for...
  10. Question and Answer
    Do you find that there is a sort of "schedule" for loss leaders? Do certain stores have the same loss leaders month after month? Or are they different? Im just starting this stocking up thing, and I bought Stove top stuffing for 88 cents a box. I bought 10 boxes and I was wondering if I will...

    Hi, I'm still a little confused on loss leaders. From what I understand they are the items a store is taking a hit on, but where do I find them? Are they advertised? Where in the store are they usually placed? I'm heading to Meijers tonight and was going to look for them . . . thanks Mandi

    Loss leaders have been terrible around here for about a year and a half. We are talking few and far between. I use to get tuna 4/$1, best I have seen it lately is 3/$1. You can bet I bought $20 worth. Hamburger was .78lb, but that's been awhile too(before Mad Cow and Atkins). The only store...
