Link doesn't work as soon as I select my location. So yes, YMMV. A lot.

I have volunteered at a food bank before and please reconsider donating non-perishables. Volunteers/workers at the food bank need to portion them into take away kits; and random assortment of canned goods/non-perishables can be creates certain challenges (canned meats, calories, nutrition, etc etc). Don't get me wrong, its a good deed.

Alternative #1: Donate cash - this will allow the inventory specialist to order in bulk and better design balanced take-away kits. This streamlines costs per kit - results more calorie/nutritionally balanced kits per $.

Alternative #2: Volunteer at the food bank; help your local community bank with receiving/managing food donations, work with organizers to build food kits, etc etc...

Disclaimer: I am not discouraging donating non-perishables as it's still a great deed; I am presenting an alternative perspective from my experience having volunteered there before... the more you know...

Donating cash has other benefits for both the food bank and the donor:
1. The food bank can usually purchase food at lower cost than you can, i.e. at wholesale prices. (Although in this case 25¢ a tin sounds like a price error so it may be an exception.)
2. The cash can be used to pay for overhead expenses incurred by the food bank, e.g. to operate their distribution system. Think building and vehicles, etc. It may not be food but it's just as important for the food bank to operate.
3. You get a charitable donation receipt that will lower your income tax. So you can afford to donate more money at the same net cost.
[4. If you intend to make a substantial donation, donate shares of appreciated securities. This has additional tax benefits for the donor, but that's way beyond the scope of this thread...]

You can get a tax receipt for the food donation as well.... depending on the food bank. You just have to fill out forms and provide them with receipts. Ever since the deal where you got 51 boxes of General Mills cereal for about $5 after Air Miles I've been donating every couple of weeks. And sure money might be better... but with some of the crazy deals I've gotten on Red Flag Deals I've been able to help them at a reduced cost to myself.

As for the soup... sold out in Grimsby. But they did have Halloween boxes of chips on for $4.44 so not a total loss.

delicious. stock up the pantry for the winter months, when drinking stovetop reheated soup is highly recommended. add more water than what's recommended, because that stuff is high in sodium

Thank you OP. I ordered 200 cans to be donated to our local church who help the tent city under Bridge St. in Niagara Falls. As cold weather sets in, there is nothing like a warm soup to warm your core.

I ordered multiple cans from PC Express - the price online was (and still IS) at time of writing $0.25 - the "bill" for the online order said each one was $0.25... and at pick-up they asked me to tap my credit card, as it was over the pre-auth limit.
Checked the receipt -- and the store scanned the soup in @ $2.48 each.
Ticket already opened w/PC Express....

Check your receipts!

Instore and online, not a price error. The price is reduced because
1) overstock in the warehouse and stores
2) new labelling coming
3) product will not be carried by the company in the future

My RCSS shows these as PC Express only, not in-store, at the 25¢ price.

You know this or you just suspect this?

4) It can be a price error still by someone at corporate level. Working at RCSS, I have seen this happen before, where a price comes from corporate on Wednesday night (Before Thursday flyer changeover), and prices do not line up properly such as with this soup. I bet with the amount of "publicity" this deal is getting, corporate has flagged this and the price will be corrected very soon.... As per our SAP person who deals with pricing and labels
