Double your high value coupons at Kmart
Tide (and more): This week Kmart is doubling coupons up to $2 with a purchase of $25 or more. The limit is five coupons per customer per day. In that case, seek out the highest-value coupons to get the most bang for your buck. For example, you will find a $2-off-one Tide coupon in the Sept. 27 Procter & Gamble circular. Kmart has Tide liquid detergent (92-100 ounce) on sale for $12.99. You’ll pay $8.99 each after using the $2 doubled coupon. You can also use the $2 coupon on the smaller 40-ounce bottles. Check stores for specific prices of all sizes of Tide and compare the final cost per ounce to determine the best deal.

Axe: Kmart has Axe solid deodorant sticks (2.6 to 3 ounce) on sale for $4 each when you buy two.

You will also get 3,000 member points worth $3 when you spend $15 or more on participating Unilever products, including Axe items.
Crest: Walgreens has Crest Pro Health mouthwash (16 or 33.8 ounce) on sale for $4.99. Use the 50-cent coupon from the Sept. 27 P&G circular to pay $4.49 at the register. You will get a $3 Register Rewards coupon, so your net cost will be $1.49.
Irish Spring: Walgreens has Irish Spring body wash (15 or 18 ounce) and six-pack bar soap on sale for $2.99 each. When you buy three, you will get 3,000 Balance Rewards points worth $3.75.

If you get the Scope, you can use three of the $1-off-one Scope coupons in the same circular. You will get a $3 Register Rewards coupon, so your net cost will be $1 each. You can mix or match any combination of these items to get to the three-item goal.
