There are many phones available FREE with activation of a qualifying service plan and contract.

Independence Day will be a good time to shop for a new phone. We should see some good iPad and tablet sales, too. This summer, many people are in a better financial situation today vs years past, so wireless phone dealers are rolling out the sales, discounts, and rebate incentives.

Target 4th of July Sale $2.50 Coke Pepsi 12 Packs

There are 5 times each year to buy soda pop: the week before Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4), Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas/New Year’s. Many stores will sell sodas at or below cost during these times. The purpose is to get you into the store where they hope you will then purchase all your other holiday groceries and party items from them.

Target is featuring Coke, Pepsi, 7UP, A&W, and Dr. Pepper products, four 12 packs for $10.00 in select markets. That’s just $2.50 each! Given the substantial price increases we’ve seen on soda over the past few years, this is about as cheap as you’ll find soda pop 12 packs. In some Target markets, the price is 4 for $11. According to the newspaper insert, there doesn’t appear to be a limit on these. So, stock up at the 4 for $10 or 4 for $11 sale price. Make sure you have enough to last until Labor Day! If you prefer bottles, Coke 2-liters are on sale @ 5 for $5.00.

Offer valid through July 2, 2016 at participating locations. No coupon required. Must buy 4 to get the sale price. Otherwise, 12 packs are $3.29-$3.59 each.
