On the way to work the other day, I stopped in at KMart to pick up a few things. They were having undergarments on sale at 50% off (saving me $7.50 on the two items I purchased) as well 75 ounce bottles of Xtra laundry detergent at $2.49 each.
I had noticed a coupon for the laundry detergent while I had some downtime in laundry the weekend before, and decided that I was going to take advantage. In order to reap the rewards of the coupon, you had to have a rewards card. I have one of these, so I was determined that I would stock up on laundry the detergent.
The detergent was being sold (with coupon + card) for $1.88 per bottle, with a maximum number of 5 bottles that could be purchased per transaction. I purchased all 5.
Living on my own, I was only two or three loads of laundry a week. This is a huge difference from washing one or two loads per day when the girls lived at home and I was taking care of other children.
I kept 3 bottles.
I gave 2 bottles to my daughter Zowie and her roommate.
The three bottles should last me the winter and into the spring months.
My total saving for this trip was $10.55. Not bad 🙂
Are you taking advantage of coupons and your rewards card when doing so will truly be beneficial?
