Weekly Grocery Deals Thread – August 8th – August 14th [ON/East]

Hi everyone,

I remember a year or so ago there being a thread for weekly grocery deals and since I didn't see any pop up, I decided to start one last week. Feedback has been positive so here’s the third week’s lineup! Please share any suggestions for deals that I've missed. Here's this week’s lineup of deals:

And for those of you in the west, I’m looking forward towards posting the thread later this week. If anyone could quickly PM me with the basics (e.g. when flyer cycles start, what stores are reputable; price match policies with large grocers, which regions have different flyer cycles) that would really help a lot.

Anyone know what a "combination chop" is?
I've never heard that term before and Google brings me back here.
[Walmart]: Lean Ground Beef Value Pack [i.e. Family Size, Club Pack), $2.88/lb
I'm not 100% sure, but I think Costco is cheaper than this.
Not to mention better.

EDIT: I lied. Regular price is $3.64/lb at Costco.

[Food Basics]: Tropicana Orange Juice, $2.97/1.65L
I thought this was cheaper at Costco (when not on sale) but it turns out this is $1.80/L vs Costco's regular price of $1.89/L.
Obviously cheaper if you compare sale to sale, but this is more a benchmark than anything.

For the past 25 years, almost all bone-in pork chops that I saw offered in supermarkets in Ontario have always been "combination packs", with the meaning that "the pack will contain a combination of several rib-end chops (fattier) and several loin-end chops (leaner)".

Oh... that's what that means.
I figured they named it weirdly or something.

I don't think ground beef is cheaper at Costco. I believe it's $8 or so per kg, which works out to about $3.60/lb.

Your Independent Grocer has pork side ribs for $1.50/lb, only until Saturday.

Oh you're right, I for some reason thought it was $6/kg.
I'll edit my post.

I still stand behind the quality though.

22086 / 4734 days = nearly 5 posts every single day for the last dozen years! Wow.

I feel like "deal expert" isn't sufficient.

In for a penny... in for a pound...

I have 5 posts in this thread alone which is pretty ridiculous when you consider that there's a total of 13.

I picked up some ground beef from Costco a week ago, it was $7.49/kg, works out to be roughly about $3.4/lb. Yesterday, I saw a sign stated that there will be additional dollars off a pack, can't remember exactly how many dollars though.
