While going through the supermarket I saw that there was a cereal promotion where if you bought two boxes you can get a coupon to save five dollars on a pair of movie tickets. While that sounds great each cereal was about seven dollars. That is way more expensive than normal.
That didn’t stop people from buying it like crazy though and saying what a crazy bargain it was. I have a habit personally in always wanting to find the lowest price the item has been. In this case the cheapest I have seen was about three dollars a box.
This can be important whenever you see those group buy deals in general too. It may sound cheaper than buying it individually but many times the price itself isn’t that great. You are better off waiting for a real sale.
