I bought some tortillas cheap a few weeks ago for .99/package. I wanted to buy some imitation crab meat for Seafood Enchiladas, and I found a package for $4.83. I noticed that the expiration date was 2/19 (and I was shopping on 2/19); there was another package with an expiration date of 3/2. It would have been easy to just pick the package with a later expiration date, but I decided to ask the woman behind the fish counter if I could get a discount since the expiration date was the same day. She smiled, slapped a sticker on the package and handed it back to me. She gave me 50% off, so I got the crab for $2.41.
Just ask. (To see my previous post on just asking and saving money, go here.)
