I needed milk and some produce yesterday, so I decided to try the Purex deal, and it worked! I still get a little nervous about catalina deals, so I only bought two bottles (I haven't seen the official advertisement myself). This cost me $13.64, but I earned a $4 "on your next order" catalina, and will go back today to get two FREE Purex since this deal rolls, using the $4 "OYNO" coupon I earned from buying the Purex.
Purex 50 oz $1.99 each with in ad coupon
Used 45¢/1 manufacturer coupon (only had 1 in my coupon stash)
Bananas 59¢ per lb (everyday low price)
Oranges 58¢ per lb (good price and in season!)
Roma Tomatoes 99¢ per lb (decent, but not a stock up price)
Asparagus $1.28 per lb (cheapest I've seen this year and yummy with dinner last night)
Milk $2.28 per gallon
Earned a $4 "OYNO" catalina!
According to Maygan you need to buy 2 of the 50 oz Purex bottles to get the catalina (the 60 oz bottles apparently don't trigger the coupon to print). Mine didn't print until well into the next person in lines transaction. So, if yours doesn't print immediately, just wait a few minutes. My cashier was thankfully aware of this catalina and had me go me hang out until it appeared. If you plan to roll this deal too, just make sure you have a cheap filler item with your second two bottles of FREE detergent! Just remember, you need to buy each two bottles of Purex in separate transactions to get each catalina. Thanks Maybe Frugal!
Update: I just read on another blog that this deal may not be working in lots of places due to some let's say, "over-zealous" shoppers. You can read more here!
