TIP!! - S26 Gold Formula for $17.10 per can

22 June 2008

I'm always on the lookout for the best prices for formula! I usually buy for Toys-r-us where the price is about $19, and the prices run from about $21-22 at most chemists to $24 at Woolworths.

However when I tried to get the toys-r-us sale priced formula on Saturday they had none on the shelf :( grr. Chemmart does a price match +10%, so I showed them the catalogue and ended up getting it for $17.10 per can. They also have a rewards program where you get 5% back to spend at the store (so I have 85c in credit per can, and it's pretty handy with how much I seem to spend at the pharmacy). This is by far the cheapest price I can find so I have stocked up!

The main thing is the omega-3 fats, other ingredients are a little different. For us it suited my babies digestive system a little more. (That is a very tactful way of discussing what I think the prime minister would call "graphic" incidents when he first tried formula.)

What do you think?
