Committed a RFD sin

I was in a SDM (which belongs to my new neighbour) the other day to buy milk. Looked at the yogurt and saw 600-700ml tubs marked down $3 or 4 so the net price was $0.39. There was also a PCO bonus of 1,500pts if you bought two (there were several tubs) so Loblaw's was essentially giving you $0.72 to take two away. I looked at the yogurt and saw that it was one of those vile, 0% fat varieties. Much to my surprise, they couldn't give me (a little bit of) money to take it away, which is committing a RFD cardinal sin.

Well, the cheapest high fat which is 2% and I've noticed the price is ~9¢ / 4l less than at the nearby RCSS and I get points to boot. What's better was the marked down Kraft Philadelphia cream cheese. 99¢ a 250g brick compared to $3.99 normal price so I got 4 (I don't care too much about expiration dates). Never seen it for less than $2.50 on sale, and that's rare. Cheese cakes coming up!

Cool story bro.
To be nobody but yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. -- E. E. Cummings

@thriftshopper Lol good story
But ya know not every RFDer is related to El Cheapo... some of us just believe in good value for our money spent
If you ain’t gonna use it, or its going to end up going bad... then it’s not a good investment
No matter how much someone bribes you to take it off their hands

And ya... I foresee a move in your future
Bets are on that the Mods are gonna put this into the PCO Megathread

I support your decision. 0% fat dairy. Paying you to haul it away...gotta pay more.
