10 for 10 - buyer beware
Have you seen this 10 for 10 gimmick? It's catching on here in Cheyenne. Albertsons started offering things this way, and now other stores are doing it too.
Be aware that this idea can have various meaning. Is it ten pounds of food for ten dollars? Yes, sometimes it is. I thought it was ten items for ten dollars. Yes, sometimes it is.
Look carefully to make certain you know whether it's pounds, ounces, items, bags, jars or cans. It makes a big difference sometimes.
Quite a few people think that they have to buy 10 pounds of peaches to get that sale price. Not so. It's just a sales gimmick that sounds much better than "1 for 1" or "8 for 8".
You don't have to buy 10 peaches or 10 pounds, but you could if you want. You could also buy 15 if you wanted.
The same principle applies to 3 for $2 sales. That's about 67 cents each, no matter how many you buy. A 2 for $3 sale is $1.50 each, no matter how many you buy.
As always, check the fine print to make certain there isn't a minimum purchase required. Usually there isn't.
