BEST BUYS:

Here's a comparison of sale items promoted in the grocery-store advertisements inserted in this week's newspaper. We highlight prices of identical items when possible.

NOTE: Bi-Lo and Kroger sales apply only to customers who have the store's discount card. Stores not mentioned under product heading did not advertise an item for sale in that category.

When items are grouped (i.e., two for $5), the customer can buy just one and get the sale price ($2.50 each). That also applies at most stores to buy-one, get-one-free offers. For example, if two bags of chips are $4, the customer can buy just one bag for $2. The exception is Winn-Dixie, where shoppers must purchase both items to receive the buy-one, get-one-free discount.

Items are listed in order of cheapest price.

Winn-Dixie: Budweiser or Bud Light, 18-pack of 12-ounce cans, $12.49

Bi-Lo: Coors Light, Miller Light, Budweiser or Bud Light, 12-pack of 12-ounce bottles, $8.39
