Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

Great deal on Finish dishwashing tablets at CVS!!!

I frakin' love these dishwasher tablet things. No more detergent dust getting into my eyes and nose and mouth when I pour it! Ugh. So I have a pretty huge stockpile of them. And I just added about 2 years more to the mix. Now I just gotta figure out where I'm gonna put it all...

Bought 18 Finish Powerball Tabs/Gelpacs, 20 count $3.50 each, regularly $6.39 each
Spend $30.00, Receive $10.00 Cash Card, Limit 5 per card 
Used 18 $2.15/1 manufacturer coupons from SS 1/1 (yes, the coupon can be used on the 20-count Powerball Tabs/Gelpacs; the company clarified the coupon wording on their Facebook page).

*The coupon technically states a limit of 2 to be used per transaction; I don't see what the big deal is here, since splitting it up into separate transactions of 2 each won't keep you from getting the deal (it's tracked on your ExtraCare card). I didn't have to do it. But if the store insists on doing it, just do it.*

Paid $24.30, received 2 $10.00 CVS Cash Cards
Final Price: $4.30 ($0.24 each) for 18 (96% savings off shelf price!)

What I actually paid: $24.30 - $5.24 in previous Extra Bucks - $10.00 CVS cash card (I split up the transactions so I could use the first cash card on the second transaction) + $3.78 sales tax = $12.84 paid out of pocket. Walked away with a $10 CVS Cash Card.

Of course you can do this once by only buying 9. Or you could pair some with the $2.00 All Detergent or $5.00 Airwick Minis. Get creative! I can't do everything for you. Sheesh!
