Hallmark Cards & Coke Deal

1) Walk into Safeway and pick up this week’s ad. At the bottom of page 5 is
a coupon for “Free Coca-Cola 8pk or a Dasani Water 12pk Fridge Pack with
each 3-card purchase.”

2) Pick out three .99 expressions by Hallmark cards. Not all stores carry
the .99 cards.

3) Look for the bin of adorable holiday puppies, FREE with any 3-card

4) Pay $2.97 for the three cards, plus any deposit your state has for the
bottles (none here, thankfully). The price of the soda and the puppy come
off at the register.

5) Rinse and repeat. The coupon doesn’t expire until December 2nd, so pick
up a few extra ads while you’re there (the ads will go away Tuesday evening)
so you can do this again.
