Sooooo, in light of the moneymaker deal on the Brita Basic water filtration pitcher, I thought I'd head over to my local Walmart to get lucky. I was not lucky. I was beyond unlucky. Not only was my local Walmart out of the coveted $8.97 Brita Basic water filtration pitcher, but (as the kindly salesperson informed me) the other two Walmarts within a 30-minute drive were also out of the pitcher.
To complicate things a bit further: if you look on the Walmart website, all of the pitchers under $12 have been snatched up. So, apparently couponing is a competitive sport.
Heartbroken, defeated even--I headed over to Meijer to see if they had any comparably priced pitchers. I hadn't seen any of the other couponing websites mention Meijer so I didn't get my hopes up. But...Meijer has them. AND they are only a couple pennies higher than the Walmart price :) So, if any of you ladies are interested in picking one up, try Meijer.
