increased by 39.8%

and buttock at more than $2,200.

To alleviate the impact on the pocket, even in part, in recent months different

promotions and official agreements

have been announced , which can still be taken advantage of.

10% and 35% less

than the values ​​on the counter.

And that, well used, allow you

to save several thousand pesos

throughout the month.

top four

seven cuts

that is much
