New Feature: Milk Price Tracker!

We’re excited to debut a new feature today on Springs Bargains (and it’s coming soon to Denver Bargains, too) – a super-cool milk price tracker!  You’ll see it on the top righthand side of the page, and it features user-submitted prices for milk at stores in the Colorado Springs area!

Many of you shop at several stores a week and want to know which store has the best price.  Unfortunately, it’s not always advertised.  The milk price tracker will help you be able to see what recent prices were at your favorite stores so you can know where it’s cheapest!

Submitting a milk price update is super easy, too – just click on the link at the bottom of the tracker or go here and check the boxes to indicate what store, which brand, and the price you found, and it automatically updates in the sidebar!   We’d love to have you update prices as often as you can so that everyone is able to see what the most recent prices are.

I hope you enjoy the feature and find it useful and are able to take a couple of seconds to update prices to help others, too.  I’d love to hear what you think of the new feature!

  1. I think this will be wonderful! I go through 2 to 3 gallons a week and finding the right price is always a priority for me.
    Thank you for this new service. You do so much already to help us all, it always surprisese that you mange to find new ways to help us!

  2. I love this!!!! It’s always a pain when we don’t see milk on sale in the ads because it’s something we have to buy multiple gallons of every week and we want to be sure we are getting the best price. Thanks so much for this wonderful addition to an already amazing site!

  3. Thank you for doing this. We go through gallons on milk each week and I am always looking for the best prices on milk. This new feature caught my attention when I did not see good prices on milk this week. Thank you!!

    This is awesome! I’ve paid way too much on milk a few times because I needed it and didn’t time to do more than run into a store and hope it’s on sale.

    Thanks!!

  5. I totally agree with Carmen and Sharon!! ;)

    Carrie ~ you are the BEST!!!!!!

  6. $0.42 a gallon for Sintons at Farm Crest? Really?

  7. Does anyone have organic prices?

  8. Nifty! Thank you so much for this!

  9. Ok I’m at Walmart and seeing your post that there is a milk tracker but I can’t see it. All I see are the comments about milk tracker. How do I see it on my phone? I can’t figure out what to click on. It keeps going back the post about it.

    • Hi, Audrey – I’m planning on tweaking the mobile app so it works right soon. I HATE HATE HATE most mobile sites – my own included – and would really rather turn it off completely but some people want it. You will have to view the regular site to see the tracker, though, there’s just not a place for it on the mobile app. Will be working on getting it to actually switch back and forth between desktop and mobile RIGHT soon. :)

  10. Audrey,
    If you scroll all the way down the page on your phone, there should be a ‘switch’ that says Mobile Theme on/off. Try turning it to off and you should be able to see the full website. From there, the ticker is on the right hand side of the screen.

  11. Thanks! But you may want to add a specific location feature for Walmart.I see someone said milk is $1.97/gallon at Walmart. The Woodmen Walmart had it for $2.88. I find Walmarts have different prices sometimes.

  12. I haven’t paid more than $1.97 for a gallon of 2% for the last year. We go through at least 6 gallons a week. The Troika of stores in our neighborhood (Albertsons, King Soopers, Safeway) take turns having it on sale for $1.97 I always have some frozen as back up for those big holiday weeks (Xmas, Easter, Thanksgiving) when no one has it on sale.

  13. Thanks, guys – I’m SO glad it will be helpful for you! It was fun to do and I’m really excited about it – as long as you are willing to keep submitting prices!

    Thanks to Audrey’s suggestion, I added an option to specify which Walmart you found the price at. It will show up when you select Walmart as the store.

    Also, I created an page that shows more than just the five most recent updates and has the milk price submission form on the same page. You can view the most recent 20 milk prices, organic milk prices, and prices by store; as well as submit a price update, here: http://springsbargains.com/colorado-springs-milk-prices/
