Shoppers has the same price on the 25th and 26th.

That said, last week was $1.88 at Maxi, but I consider anything $3 and under a good enough deal for a 6pk of 710ml

Oddly, I've noticed Coke/Pepsi is a lot cheaper in Canada than in the USA. I wonder if it's because we generally give said companies free access to clean water.

You can get the cans 12 for $3.99 regular price and it's about 4 litres altogether

This is 6 for $2.50 for about 3.26 litres. So it would cost around $3.00 at this rate to get 4 litres, saving you $1 over the cans.

Then again, you can usually find a case of 24 cans for $6.50 and that's even cheaper.

Personally I prefer buying cans, I hate plastic and avoid it as much as possible.

Although it is expensive, the best tasting Coca cola are the ones that come in the glass bottles. I think they are like 230ml or something but they are the best tasting hands down.

You are aware that the cans are lined with plastic that can't be recycled vs the bottles that can be ?

Is this your best guess? Because that liner thats EXTREMELY thin gets mulched and smelted in the aluminum recycling process. Cans are literally one of the biggest sources of recycling and they are all lined these days.

The reason the liners(even though they are different from can liners) are an issue in coffee cups is because you dont smelt paper

I never suggested the can wasn't recyclable I said the plastic wasn't :)

The 6x710mL plastic models have exactly the same amount of product in them compared to a 12 pack of 355mL cans. Getting 1 of these is a much better deal than the 12 pack of 355mL cans and 2 of these bottles packs is also a better deal than the 24 pack of 355mL cans.

Your math is off. 12 cans at 355ml vs 6 bottles at 710ml = the same

$2 for 6 bottles is my benchmark for a good deal. The last time I took advantage of this pricing was at no frills. FreshCo also sponsors the $2 from time to time.
Koodo $40/6GB
Public Mobile 2016 fall promo, $23/1GB, $38/5GB

Yeah, the $1.99/$2 is a great deal but I find that it happens only maybe a few times a year. Tough crowd here. Here's the thing - Shoppers limits customers to a quantity of 4, have almost no stock, and often only have a choice of maybe 2 or 3 flavors. You'd also need a time machine to go back to last week or forward in time to the upcoming weekend. At current, I'd be surprised if anyone finds a price better than $2.50. I'd love to have the lower prices of past sales, but right now, this is as good as we're going to get.

Woops you're right! Lol

Still I don't like plastic and avoid it if I can.
