    Bud/Bud Light 36*12 / 24.99 = 17.28



    Tecate/Light, Coors/Light, Coors Banquet = 13.10



    Bud/Light, Miller/Light 20*12

    Wait... wait... what?

    I have to admit, I have no idea how much a case of Stella costs. It doesn't matter, I want it.

    Since you're dealing with pennies you can round after the first two digits.

    Those are the lost, unloved digits. They deserve our love and care.

    Here, the ad from yesterday has the up-level beer: Stella, Heineken, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams at 12 for $12.99

    Basic: Bud, Coors, Miller Lite, Tecate at 30 for $17.99

    I'm like you I'll pay the extra.

    If you are drinking any of those beers you have more than math problems.

    Here's the move. Get a sixer of the good stuff. Then get a twelver of bud light. Mix in some Sauza if you wanna get twisted.

    So I can get 36, 12 oz cans for 24.99, but if I buy two 20 packs I'll get 40 beers for 19.94?. And how are bottles the same price as cans?

    Btw, I never heard of a 20 pack, when did they start making those?
