Tips for Stocking up.

Post by Patchez »

Every penny counts. I'm not just talking bottom shelf swill by the bucket load though that helps get a stash off the ground.

I'm talking about doing your homework and checking out the liquor store flyers , better yet get yourself on the mailing list of your favorite candy stores. you get the heads up on sales and sometimes even coupons.This will help you plan your payday assault. Now you can grab you some higher end stuff and if done right still use your savings for some bottom shelf swill.

Good luck and happy hunting.

I see double already in the morning? Good job there Patchez.
Sadly there`s no such thing like a mailing list at my local candy store. They probably think it is useless to tell me they got more vodka, I damn hope so!

Do they also hand out "free" glasware to go with overpriced bottles in the US? Some people just can`t resist a brown forman tumbler for drunk`s sake.

Damn fine work, Patchez. You'll be having squid tentacles coming out of your ears for a minute or two.
Draw yourself a bath of grog, perhaps?

Here's a few other tips for the savvy stockpile shopper...

#1 Wyoming
#2 Missouri
#3 New Hampshire
#4 Colorado
#5 Vermont


*Also, it is a little known fact that Kirkland Brand Signature Vodka as sold by Costco is repackaged Grey Goose. Same vodka, just without the pretty bottle and 50% markup.

I had two coupons so I HAD to get two bottles. Isn't that the way it works?

Or however many coupons they might limit you to using.

Once upon a time, I picked up several cases of Stoli handles with $5 off coupons and an additional 10% case discount at the register. That was during strawberry season, and man did I get shit-eyed drunk making infusions with those ripe beauties.

Speaking of mailing lists I got a direct email from my candy store south of the border, MD, that my American Pharoh bottle of MM was in. On May 11th. Found it in my spam mail. Today. Fuck me I hope they still have it.

I know... marketing ploy.... I love the horses.

You know, the only coupons I get are for revisiting casinos I've been to, that have hosted the conferences. I'll never be back, because we always get kicked out for bad behavior.

However, I'm going to seek a glass of kraken now. Hopefully I get home, my friend

I got a coupon for £1 off some beer for buying some timber. Sadly it's only valid on 4 can packs of carlsberg (watered down to 3.8%abv "to suit British tastes"). Ah well, beggars can't be choosers

also, I was thinking, wow these guys are loaded, this isn't much less than I pay for kraken. Then i realised 1.75l, a size they aren't confident enough to sell in the UK

Another fine source is CVS, RiteAids and Walgreen's, if they are allowed to sell liquor in your state or Commonwealth. They are so allowed, here, and while they don't have the best selection, what they do have is usually the cheapest around and in the largest quantities. I used to get the 3L jugs of Rossi for 12 bones US. Also, they all have coupons in the paper/advertised sales.

Ah you Sir are lucky. Our Commonwealth is still in the bootlegging business. State run liquor stores. Draconian dark ages.
