Just trying to get a good idea of where to buy boxed mixes for cheap? And still BC or DH.

Thanks in advance.

I usually watch for Publix to have them "Buy one Get one Free". Their usual price is $1.83. Otherwise, in my area, Wal-Mart usually has the best price: $1.24 if I remember correctly. This is for Duncan Hines regular cake mixes not their new ones like Carrot Cake and Red Velvet. HTH

I watch my local grocery store ads and then when they come on sale I call the grocery manager and he orders me whatever I want in cases....I do this about every 3 months..They know me there so I never have a problem!I get them for usually about $1.25 a box...they are never cheaper here unless they are 10 for $10.00 but then there is a limit.

Wow, Publix in my area is $2.27 Duncan Hines! Walmart .98 but a 2 hour drive so I buy cases when i'm up that way. Walmart's vanilla is not bad either..way better than mccormick.

I have found the Ginger Evans brand from Save-A- Lot stores to be a great cake mix in any flavor. It has a very fine texture and I receive the most compliments when I use this brand. The price is .99 a box which can't be beat!

I always watch the grocery store ads that come in the mail and I stock up when they're on sale. Normally at Stater Bros or Vons. I normally don't buy them unless they're under $1.00. Just bought a bunch of them at Vons for $.89.

If there's a limit on the purchase, I'll go back the next day! thumbs_up.gif

Thank you! I'll have to check out walmart. We don't have most of the stores some of you listed! Thanks again.

My Walmart had DH for about 98 cents for a whie, then went to $1.16, now $1.24, and those 2 jumps have been within 4-6months. But I do watch Hy-vee and Kroger, ad stock up when they are 88cents. Never thought about calling to order! I always use the WASC recipe, or tweak some myself-like my grape cakes...with peanut butter filling....

I only use Betty Crocker or Pillsbury. I get them at Walmart usually. $0.96-$1.20/each. I also watch for deals like spend $25 get back $10 at my regular grocery stores. I've actually gotten BC cake mixes for free in deals like that when combined with manufacturer coupons.
