This Wiki should serve as a guide to help people know what a good deal is.
Lowest Obtainable Price in the Deal Should Meet Price Guide Standards.

Not all DDMS Deals set the bar for what the price is for that item, as some of them might be so low that a higher price later is still worth mentioning.

They were LEOA and brand name. Good enough for me.

Also note not all products are identical while Dial Soap might be acceptable at less than .33 a bar,
Dove Soap may fetch double the price and be considered a great deal at .57 a bar. Feel free to update the wiki to add more brands in as well.

Also note that each unit may have different qty like toilet paper more squares or toothpaste more oz.

I hope this will help serve as a guide.

Feel free to update the Wiki.
Make sure to add a URL to a matching page on DDMS.

And try to keep it in Alphabetical Order

K-cups should be divided by brand name and generic. $0.27 is the price for generic.

Good to know but for most people, even double the price on ur price guide would be great deals for them compared to what they're getting at their local store or even Costco.
I feel like its the DansDeals experts/frequent users that know about this.

But i understand, I guess we can't water down the deals.
I wonder how many miles I've scrolled with my finger

<.24 for no name but I didn't even bother putting it because if it's study fuel double caffeinated  k-cup I think it's not worth of ddf even pay the extra .04 for a better rated coffee k-cup.


.27 for k-cup is a deal

Of course some brands warrant a higher price
We're yet to see anything to quote

Costco doesn't necessarily have the best prices, but they definitely do give very good value (good quality for the price paid). I find that often the best deals in Costco are for food items (oil, romaine lettuce, frozen vegetables, yeast, etc. just to mention a few that come to mind). Also their toilet paper is very good value, while some might prefer Charmin or Cottonelle, the combination of the roll size, feel and price is close to unbeatable.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

i agree you won't get burnt buying at Costco

Costco demands from their merchants a higher quality product and work on smaller margins

And have an excellent return policy.

Here's an example of something that happened to us: we buy frozen corn almost exclusively in Costco, primarily due to the quality, but also for the price. A couple of months ago the manufacturer had a major recall. Costco just went ahead and refunded each and every purchase of items on the recall list within a certain date range, regardless of the code on the package, and no need to return to the store.
