Regional Coupon: BOGO Purex (Makes for FREE Detergent at CVS)

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 15, 2009 · 81 comments

BOGO Purex Laundry Detergent CouponIt seems that this coupon is regional based on zip code, but hopefully many of you will be able to print this BOGO Purex Laundry Detergent coupon. Print limit reached now.

If you're lucky enough to be in one of the locales they're targeting (it should show in the upper left column or click household to verify), run to CVS to redeem it for FREE laundry detergent by pairing it with their BOGO sale through Saturday!!!

(Of course you know I had to print it right away so that accounts for the print limit reached on my image, LOL! Thanks, Mercedes!)

4 Lauren April 16, 2009 at 12:29 am

Didn't work for me either... hmm... wrong area :D

You can use a BOGO coupon with a BOGO sale to get two free ;) Works this week for the SOBE drinks at CVS as well!

I got mine! Thanks a lot! I am going to go tomorrow and stock up. Maybe hit up a few friends houses who I know does not print coupons and print away on this one! Defiantely a stock opportunity!

Honestly, I have never shopped at CVS before, anything I should know before I go?

12 Jen C April 16, 2009 at 7:26 am

Thanks Tara! I'll be set until the end of summer now.


13 Jenni April 16, 2009 at 8:15 am

If we aren't one of the regions that are able to get this on our coupon list, and we use another zip code to get the coupon- will the stores we take them to have the coupons in their system to accept when they scan, or are only the stores within the regions going to have the coupons properly coded in their system? (otherwise my stores won't take them anyways because of being printables and not scanning)


14 LeighAnn April 16, 2009 at 8:46 am

It is not for my area. If I use one of the working zip codes, will the coupon be valid in my area?


15 Cherie April 16, 2009 at 8:52 am

I just used zip code 44514 to get the coupons if anybody is having trouble finding it with theirs. :)


16 LAURA April 16, 2009 at 9:01 am

can someone explain how the BOGO works on a BOGO?

Will it be free totally? (give or take tax)
this is confusing! help!



17 Jenni April 16, 2009 at 9:09 am

CVS is giving a BOGO on Purex Detergents- so it is like a store coupon without needing an actual coupon. You can pair "store coupons" with manufacturer coupons, so since the manufacturer of Purex is also offering a BOGO on the detergent, you can use them both together, making the detergent free. You will still have to pay tax.


18 Tara Kuczykowski April 16, 2009 at 9:11 am

Laura, according to CVS' store policy, it should be free plus tax. I know it's a little confusing, but I did confirm it with their customer service awhile back.

The coupons will be valid in other areas, but I'm not advocating using questionable measures to get them. Obviously I can only control what happens in the comments so much, so everyone should go with their own personal beliefs on whether or not to use a different zip code than where you currently live.


19 LAURA April 16, 2009 at 9:12 am

thank you!

so since I have (2) BOGO Purex coupons I can get 4 free?


20 Amy April 16, 2009 at 9:14 am

Went to CVS at 7:30 before work today and picked up FOUR free Purex!! The coupon was NOT for my area, but the manager accepted it!! I am on cloud nine!!


21 Jenni April 16, 2009 at 9:17 am


Yes, you should be able to get 4 detergents for free.


22 David April 16, 2009 at 9:51 am

Got the last four at CVS. The only cost I had to pay was the tax which was only .95 cents. Not bad .95 cents for four bottles


23 Laurie April 16, 2009 at 9:59 am

Heather, since you've never shopped CVS before, make sure you know you have to get a CVS Extra Care card (in order to get the deal) and also that printed in the ad, it says, "limit 4 items", so going to a friend's house to print won't get you far. Sounds like the 2 your computer will print will be all you'll be able to use. Good luck!


24 jamie April 16, 2009 at 10:00 am

how do you ladies get a Q to print twice? i used to go back about 4 pages, where it said "print your coupon" or something, now when i click the back history arrow, there's just a long list of the word "coupon" and i can't decide which one to hit.


25 Laurie April 16, 2009 at 10:07 am

Hit the back arrow twice, Jamie. If you hit it twice like a double-click on a mouse, sometimes that's too fast or something and you have to hit it again. But the site these Qs are printing from ( will let you go back and select Qs at any time up to your limit of 2. Hope that helps.


26 Laurie April 16, 2009 at 10:15 am

Jamie, hit the back arrow twice (like 2 deliberate clicks, not like a double-click, on the mouse). Sometimes if you click too fast, you have to hit it one more time. But on sites like the one this coupon is printing from, you can go back to the site at any time and print up to the limit of 2. Hope this helps!


27 Lisa Orantes April 16, 2009 at 10:18 am

Well I called to stores in my area and they said they couldnt accept the coupons with the deal. I called another store in another city and they will accept it.!!


28 Lisa Orantes April 16, 2009 at 10:19 am

OOPs...type two!


29 Amy April 16, 2009 at 10:22 am

so you just buy one bottle and you can get 4 for free with these two coupons? I'm sorry but this seems confusing on how this would work.


30 sherry April 16, 2009 at 10:33 am

zip code 43232 works for the purex deal


31 Jenni April 16, 2009 at 11:12 am

Amy- You don't have to buy one at full price to get the other 4 for free. CVS is running buy one, get one- that is a store sale. The coupon is for buy one, get one- that is a manufacturer's sale. So you get all 4 for free, no 5th bottle is needed.


32 kim April 16, 2009 at 11:30 am

it was all really confusing to me too, but our CVS took them no question and i got 4 bottles for the price of tax!


33 amber April 16, 2009 at 11:39 am

We do not have a CVS in utah and i was wondering if there might be another good deal somewhere else that i can use this coupon? thanks


34 LAURA April 16, 2009 at 11:43 am

this is a general question: can i scan the coupon and send it to a friend who cant print it out due to it being a work computer?

so, if i scan it and i use mine will she be able to use the coupon too? or does it pop up as invalid?

I dont want to cheat the system, but I was wondering that since I have seen pdf coupon images and printed them, but have yet to use them.



35 Staci April 16, 2009 at 11:47 am

I just went to CVS to use coupon and they did not accept it. When cashier tried to scan coupon it wouldn't scan and he told me that I'm not allowed to use BOGO coupon on BOGO product.

Any suggestions??



36 katie n April 16, 2009 at 11:54 am

Can I just say I love dealseekingmom!?

Hopefully my store will take the coupons, with a baby in the house I do too much laundry.



37 Robster18 April 16, 2009 at 12:07 pm

I am very confused on this. I have just started doing the shopping with coupons. I called my CVS and they said you cant use a manuf. coupon for BOGO if they are already offering this.

Can someone explain in detail how to get this to work?



38 Robster18 April 16, 2009 at 12:09 pm

I am new to all of this and appreciate all the help and deals.
I dont understand this coupon. I called my local CVS and they stated that if there is a BOGO going on already, you cant use a manuf one.

What needs to be done to get this to work. I still dont understand how it is free.


39 HipMommaLuvsBlu April 16, 2009 at 12:52 pm

Personally, I find it best to just not ask any questions about the coupons...Just try the deals you figure out yourself or that you have read on sites like this that others have found successful. Every now and then you will get a cashier who acts like their brain will explode when you give them a pile of coupons, and they feel like instead of scanning them they need to read every piece of fine print, etc..etc.. but most of the time I just casually hand them off to the cashier, they scan them, and all is well. I always have an estimate in my head of what the total should be before I check out.. that way I will know immediately if my deals/coupons all worked properly. If not, I will simply ask about it.. but I don't like to make a big fuss.. and luckily, I have never really had to. Oh.. and make sure they scan your CVS loyalty card or the special promotions will not apply to your total (i.e: BOGO promos)


40 Corysmurf April 16, 2009 at 12:59 pm

I was able to print 4 coupons using 2 computers and someone else's zip code. Got 8 bottles of Purex for nothing but tax. No problem using the BOGO coupons with the BOGO sale here in NE Florida!


41 katy April 16, 2009 at 1:04 pm

NO, please do not scan and/or copy coupons. It is coupon fraud and that is what makes companies hesitant to issue internet printables and retailers skeptical of couponers. Don't cheat the system, please!


42 Kim April 16, 2009 at 1:53 pm

Last week the cashier would not let me do the BOGO coupons with the BOGO cvs offer on the Sobe, I emailed corporate and asked them about it. They replied to me that it should have been done, and I should only have had to pay sales tax. I suggest to those of you that are having corporate and then bring in the printed response to show the cashier. This is what I plan on doing with the Purex. :)


43 Stephanie April 16, 2009 at 2:47 pm

Stopped by CVS this morning and was able to get four bottles free, plus tax. The store manager was checking me out and was totally confused as to how to enter the coupons! He only wanted to take off $3.49 for each, but I told him the coupon value is up to $7. He ran them through, but I guess he was thinking that technically buying two they are each $3.49 @@


44 rebecca April 16, 2009 at 3:45 pm

this one died quickly! no more coupons... thankfully, I did this this morning.


45 angie April 16, 2009 at 4:09 pm

kim- could you please forward the email you get from cvs? They wouldn't let me use both.
Thank you


46 robyn April 16, 2009 at 4:14 pm

that would be great to get a copy of it


47 Kim April 16, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Below is a copy of the email. I hope this helps.


Dear Ms. Kim Brimage,

Thank you for contacting CVS/pharmacy. I am in receipt of your e-mail regarding our coupon policy. I am happy to help you.

Ms. Brimage, I apologized for any confusion. When you have a coupon for a buy one get one free item and there is a buy one get one free offer you will pay only sales tax for the item. Our registers are set to allow 1 CVS coupon and 1 manufacturer coupon per item. CVS Extra Buck coupons are earned when you make a qualifying purchase. These print out instantly at the register upon reaching the threshold for the offer. Free coupons or “offers at the register” are unearned and issued to you as a valued member of the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare program. These coupons take the form of “open ended” coupons such as $3 off $15 or a certain dollar amount off a specific item. In any given transaction our registers will allow only one “open ended” coupon per transaction and more than one Extra Buck coupon provided the purchase threshold has been met for each offer amount on a per-transaction basis.

Ms. Brimage, if you have any additional questions regarding coupon policies at CVS/pharmacy please feel free to contact us again. We appreciate the time you have taken to contact us. We thank you for your patronage.

48 Teresa April 16, 2009 at 4:55 pm

I tried to use my Purex BOGO coupon today and was told by the manager that she could not give me something for "free". I was not feeling confrontational, so passed on the opportunity to remind her that if she didn't accept my coupon, she was losing $7.00 from the manufacturer. Any one else have this problem today?


49 Gail April 16, 2009 at 5:42 pm

Hi. Can you please explain what a BOGO coupon is and where you get it? Thankyou.


50 Tara Kuczykowski April 16, 2009 at 6:03 pm

Gail, a BOGO coupon is a "buy one get one free" coupon. The Purex coupon I blogged about is already gone, but I'll post new ones as they're found.

I'm really sorry for those of you that weren't able to redeem it. Please consider emailing CVS customer service about the issue, because it's definitely part of their policy. Hopefully this will prompt them to educate their employees better about their coupon redemption practices.

I sent my husband off to the store earlier to get my four bottles of detergent and the Softsoap, and he did a fabulous job of bringing it all home for $6 and change! He wasn't given any trouble whatsoever, and I'm so proud of him for making the attempt for me.
