Hi, I dont want to sound redundant, but could you guys please clarify the deal/process. I am definately a couponer, but I was a little confused. Are you guys sayin that I should be able to get four bottles of the detergent with one coupon from the ad all for free. I was under the impression that I would need to purchase one bottle. I have the coupons, could someone please let me know. Thanks in advance!!!!!

I just went with a friend to both locations here (Jonesboro, AR) and there was only 1 bottle left at each store. The other couponers cleaned them out. :(

Will have to call around to neighboring towns to find some I guess.

Still confused here too. How do you buy none and get one free? I did not see the liquid in the ad, only the sheets.

This offer is an unadvertised sale. Basically the way an offer like this works is the store pays for the free item from the sale, and the manufacturer pays for the free item from the coupon. Some stores may instead have you pay for one item and get two free. Either way, it's a good deal for laundry detergent!

Thanks for your input! I am jus wondering how are people getting four bottles without purchasing any at all? My location has the unlisted promotion also, so I will just try my luck and see what happens!

So where is this coupon located?


7 CARLA March 6, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I got the coupons from a redplum insert. I know some people on the post said theirs only had the BOGO for the Purex sheets inside however.

Bummer! The Walgreen's around me will not do this. They said they will not allow me to not pay anything. I even explained that the manufacturer reimburses them plus .08 handling fee, but (and this is the manager mind you) said they would not allow it and they talked to other Walgreen's managers and they were in agreement. What do you do about this type of situation?

Sheree, at the very least in that case they should allow you to purchase one item and get two free, one for the sale and one for the coupon. I'd call corporate and speak with them about the situation.

I think it's stupid to go to all this trouble... call corporate, drive around to various stores... by the time you do all that, you have spent too much of your valuable time and money for gas to even call it a free offer.... STUPID


11 Tara Kuczykowski March 7, 2010 at 11:55 am

Carol, I think it depends on the individual situation. If you have multiple coupons and a very small budget, I think many people will still come out ahead with the additional time and efforts.


12 Terri March 7, 2010 at 12:06 pm

Carol, I posted Walgreen's corporate information because, aside from this offer, there are those Walgreens stores that don't like coupons, don't like couponers, and will go to great effort to "keep us away." We have three Walgreens stores where I live and two of them have treated myself and fellow couponers badly enough (without cause) that we have contemplated legal action. It was only when we made our intent known that they cleaned up their act. So this contact information is NOT about a detergent freebie; it's about being treated with respect and consideration, and requiring every store to honor their own policies. BTW, our stores here did not even offer this deal.

Here is my story, I went to walgreens tonight. I TRIED to buy Purex, they were $2.99 on sale well, I had 5 $3.00 coupons when I went to check out the register would not take the 5 coupons It would only take 4. Can you explain this to me...why this happened I even asked them to adjust the coupon to $2.99 I was told that they can't do does not make sense at all HELP


14 Tara Kuczykowski March 3, 2011 at 9:53 am

It's pretty common for the registers to be set up this way. What happens is the first four Purex coupons are applying their overage to the fifth bottle and another coupon can't attach to it. He should have adjusted the coupons down to the purchase price or entered the fifth coupon manually at $2.96. If they're being stubborn in the future, I'd recommend that you just put the product back that's soaking up the overage and use your last coupon in a separate transaction.
