Although this is a past deal, it’s a great one to share! Walgreens had a deal on Finish Quantum dishwasher detergent. It was on sale for $3.49, and offered a $1.50 register reward when buying one package. Register Rewards are specific to Walgreens, and may be used like cash on subsequent transactions. There was also a coupon for $2.25 available in our Sunday Pantagraph to utilize, so after the coupon and the register reward, the final cost was actually a quarter money maker!
Soon after the Walgreens deal, CVS offered a deal on the same detergent! It was on sale for $3, and if you spent $20, you’d earn $10 in extra care bucks. By buying 7, you reach the $21 threshold, and by using seven $2.25 coupons, your cost out of pocket is just $5.25. But, you also earn back $10, so you earn back more than you spent!
Often times when there is a deal like this, stock goes quickly. And, even with multiple stores in town, there is no guarantee everything you’d like to purchase will be available.
Fortunately, there is often a back up plan at other stores if you’re willing to consider different quantities and different final prices. Jewel also had this product on sale for $2.99, and with the $2.25 coupon, they were only 74¢ a box! Although not free, less than $1 for a box of dishwasher tabs is a phenomenal price, and because this particular sale wasn’t advertised as widely as the Walgreens and CVS deal, stock was much more available.
CVS also came through again with another phenomenal deal helping me stretch my monthly budget! Maalox was on sale for $6.49, and if you bought $20 worth of product, you’d earn back $10 in extra care bucks. I bought four for approximately $26, but used four $5 coupons found in our Pantagraph! My cost is now $6, but I earned back $10, making it not only free, but giving me an extra four dollars to use on other items that don’t often have coupons!
By taking advantage of these amazing store promotions, and using coupons from the Sunday paper, or our printables at http://encouragehope.org/coupons, you’re able to purchase items that are used regularly for very inexpensively. And, because it’s important to have 6-8 weeks worth of items on hand, so you aren’t buying at the store’s pricing discretion, these deals give you enough to use until the next big deal rolls around!
