When you come to know that Costco pay their staff nearly 80% more of what Walmart pay their staff after 10 years of work. I since then realize and come to not expect much from Walmart employees lol.

In terms of the deal, I usually go on Saturday and Sunday when there's 20x the points, and I would add certain grocery items like this to get further discount to make it even more worthwhile. Just this past Sunday, we got a bag of 4L milk expiring in 6 days for $2 + 20x the points. We drink a lot milk so it worked out for us.

From experience, Orange juice can last at least two months after their best before date with no change in taste. (Assuming it is unopened and it is stored in the fridge) Orange juice is too acidic for most bacterial to grow in, so you're safe. Plus during processing they kill a lot of the bacteria in the juice.
I'm sure it can last a few months but the longest was 2 months for me when I bought a whole bunch of 2L for $0.50 on clearance. Face With Tears Of Joy

yes. I know what you mean. I live in Calgary. Some groceries near my home will have such discount when products have close best-before date. For example, if the milk have 4 days to best before day, there will be a 50% off or 2-dollar off sticker on it. I often go to hunt these discount milk since 4 days are actually enough for my family to finish it.

You live dangerously. :)

I could see that with tetra-pack ones, but plastic bottle ones? I'm surprised, but interesting to know.

I assume you are thinking old T&T. T&T started a program to get customers to find expired products. Find one expired in their store and they will give you a non-expired of the same product for free. Since then, i havent noticed anything expired in their store (tho i rarely buy anything with an expiry date there in the first place).

We agree but milk is one thing I look for the furthest Best before date I can find because (contrary to many products) milk close to (or past) its Best before date by even a few days can be sooooo God awful! One month past for yogurt is nothing but milk...

As an experiment, I keep a pack of unopened sliced ham in the fridge that is over 7 years old (you read that right) to see how long it will go before changing color or bloating. Believe it or not, It still looks normal! I won't taste it but it shows that Best before dates are relative.

T&T used to do this pre Loblaws now it doesn't happen as often.

You'll have to go to any other smaller Asian grocery stores and may find expired items still on the shelves, depends on management.

Make it a habit to check the expiry anywhere because it also happens in non Asian grocery stores like Sobeys and Metro (my first hand experience). So it could happen anywhere but I do find Asian stores are worse offenders.

Some Giant Tiger does this markdown discount even to the day of expiry/best before. They usually start at least two days before said date and then on the day of expiry/best before. Sometimes 4L milk is priced down as low as $1 I've seen, other items as low as 50 cents.

The stickers mean it's very close to expiry, no deal here.
