I spent some time yesterday going through the three grocery ads for my area (kroger, marsh, meijer) and I've got to say WOW!
Marsh is doing a Marsh Money promotion where when you spend $25 on selected P&G items, you get a $10 Marsh Money certificate to use next week. Only one will be issued per transaction.
Old Spice Body Wash $3- for instance- if you had 9 of the $2/1 mq's, you could:
buy 7 ($27),
- the 9 $2 mq's (-$18),
pay $9 total and get a $10 certificate for next week.
I do not have 9, but I do have 5 so I know I'm going to be buying some of this!
Other items were Pantene for $2.99- there is a $3/2 mq. You could:
buy 10 ($29.90)
- 5 $3/2 mq's (-$15)
Pay $14.90 and get a $10 certificate for next week. $4.90 for 10 bottles of shampoo/conditioner???? GREAT price!
Tide Detergent $5.99, there is a $2 mq
buy 4 detergent ($23.96) and 1 old spice body wash ($3)
- 4 $2 tide mq's and 1 $2 old spice mq (-$10)
Pay $16.96 and get a $10 certificate for next week.
Other items included in the sale are Charmin, Crest, Bounty, Oil of Olay Regenerist, Prilosec OTC, Cascade, Pampers, Iams, Dawn and more (check your ad or the website at marsh.net). Many different possibilities to stock up on items that you use anyway!
Meijer is having their buy 10 dollar items get the 11th free. Kroger is doing their buy 10 save $5- but the only thing I saw there was hunts tomatoes. So Meijer it is.......
