Do Not Be Fooled By Safeway's 2 for $7 Milk Trick

Reader Michelle says she witnessed someone fall for this clever milk trick performed by Safeway. Luckily, she knows that $7 is more than $6.59.

While shopping at Safeway today I noticed something odd about the “O” Organics Milk. After I listened to a mom tell her daughter she buys “whatever is on sale” I went to purchase my own milk and realized that’s not such a good plan. A half gallon was on sale for 2 for $7. Or if your a savvy shopper you could buy a gallon for $6.59. The Safeway website confirms it.

In other news, damn, organic milk costs $6.59 a gallon now? No wonder everyone has been so grouchy lately.
