Who wants super cheap summer cocktails?
Over the last few weeks in Chicago (and elsewhere, I'm sure) there have been coupons stuffed in the newspaper circulars for $5 off 2 bottles of Diageo products. Looking through circulars at shoplocal.com for any particular deals on Diageo (owner of Smirnoff) products, I also noticed Smirnoff on sale for $10 at Jewel and CVS. OK, good start: 2 bottles for $15.
It gets better with the entrance of this $50 mail-in rebate valid on 8+ bottles. Yes, 8+ bottles.
Further, many stores in Chicago (Jewel, for instance) will give you 10% off with a minimum bottle purchase (usually at least 4-6 bottles).
The math (party time is temporarily over) is that you get 8 bottles at $10 each, for a total of $80; minus 10% off so now you're at $72; plus with $5 off every 2 bottles you're at $52 and then there's $50 back via rebate. So you're literally paying $2 for 8 bottles. Add $6-$8 in tax to the pre-rebate price, though. Regardless, you're paying roughly $1 per bottle!
Of note: the rebate is valid on ALL Diageo products including Ketel One, Captain Morgan's, Jose Cuervo, Tanqueray and more. Also, the rebate expires 7/17.
And if mixed drinks aren't your thing, we just found the best deal ever on the BeerTender, which accepts a Heineken mini-keg. It has dropped from $129 to $65 after a coupon code. Either way, it will make for the cheapest party you've thrown since college.
