Save big with P &G Promotions
Tide, Pantene, Dawn: Walgreens has a promotion that gives you 5,000 Balance Rewards points worth $6.25 in future store credit when you spend $20 on participating P&G products. Tide laundry detergent (24 or 32 loads) is on sale for $5.99. Use the $2 coupon from the Sept. 28 P&G circular to pay $3.99 each at the register. If you hit the $30 in spending for the promotion, your net cost will be $2.13 per bottle. Pantene shampoo or conditioner (12.6 or 16.9 ounces) is on sale for $3.33 each when you buy three bottles. Use the $5-off-three coupon from the Sept. 28 P&G circular to pay $1.67 each at the register. After the promotion savings, your net cost will be 63 cents per bottle. Dawn dishwashing liquid (9 ounce) is on sale for 99 cents. Even without a coupon, your net cost will be 68 cents each after the promotion savings.
Cascade, Tide, Oral B: Last Sunday there was a new Procter & Gamble coupon circular with more than $104 in coupon value. Look for the $5 mail-in rebate offer for Cascade Platinum dishwasher cleaner to try a new product at no cost. You must purchase the item by Dec. 31. The Procter & Gamble Brandsaver circular also includes many high-value coupons, such as $2 off one Tide laundry detergent and $5 off three Tide detergents. Use both coupons when your store has a great sale price on Tide to stock up on four bottles. Use the “buy one, get one free” Oral B toothbrush coupon to get a free toothbrush (value up to $1.24).
Tide: Kmart has a Double Coupon promotion this week that doubles member coupons up to $2 when you spend $25 or more on grocery, household or drugstore items. Limit five coupons per customer per day. For example, large bottles of Tide laundry detergent (92-100 ounce) are on sale for $12.99. When you use the $2 coupon from the Sept. 28 P&G circular, which will double, you’ll pay $8.99 per bottle.
Old Spice: Combine promotions at Kmart this week to really stock up on deals. For example, there is a promotion that gives you a $10 Visa Prepaid card by mail when you buy $30 or more of participating P&G products. Old Spice Body Wash (16-18 ounce) is included in the promotion and is on sale for $4 each. Use the $2-off-two coupon from the Sept. 28 P&G circular, which will double to $4 off. You will pay $2 per bottle at the register, and after your Visa card savings (if you spend the $30), your net cost will be 68 cents each. Eight dollars will be credited toward the $30 spending, since your cost before coupons is the amount considered for the promotion.
