Depending on your mix of coupons, you could pick up hair care products for as low as 22 cents each after all discounts!
That's more than 90% off the 3 for $10 sale price in stores that week!
Here's how the math works out for two different scenarios -- one fairly simple, the other a little more complicated. You'll have to choose which one you want to do based on your coupons and what you find in stock at your neighborhood stores.
Pantene Scenario #1 -- Shampoo & Conditioner
- Pantene Shampoo & Conditioner -- on sale 3 for $10, with $10 back in Extra Bucks when you buy $30 or more March 29 - April 4, 2015.
- Buy nine bottles for a pre-coupon price of $30.
- NOTE: You don't have to buy all of these at once -- CVS tracks your Extra Bucks purchases on your Extra Care card, so it's totally fine if you need to go to multiple stores to get your total of nine. Your $10 in Extra Bucks will print on your final transaction once you've purchased the ninth bottle.
- Use three $5 off 3 coupons from either the 3/1 P&G inserts (expires 3/31) or from the 3/29 P&G inserts.
- You'll pay $15 out of pocket for all nine bottles, and then you'll get your $10 back in Extra Bucks.
- So that's like a final price of $5 for all nine bottles, or 56 cents each!
Pantene Scenario #2 -- Stylers
- Buy nine stylers for a pre-coupon price of $30. I recommend buying these in three transactions of three each, in order to be able to use all of your coupons (P&G coupons limit shoppers to using only four per transaction.)
- Use nine $2 off coupons from either the 2/22 or the 3/15 Smartsource inserts (both expire on March 31, 2015.) Those coupons will take a total of $18 off your purchase.
- So you'll pay $12 out of pocket for all nine bottles, and then you'll get your $10 back in Extra Bucks.
- That's a final price of $2 for nine stylers -- or 22 cents apiece!
Don't forget Pantene also qualifies for the current $15 P&G rebate as well!
