    Very interesting; thanks!

    Dr D:

    That Tide Simply Clean is the "lite" Tide (if it's the one in the yellow jug), so I would save it for stuff that's not very dirty. It's basically a watered down version for cost conscious folks.

    Thanks Dr D for posting the SB code. I was out and about this afternoon and not here to post it. Always appreciate your help with that!

    There is a very good deal on Tide at CVS starting on SUnday. I will have the CVS deals posted tonight. If you got the $2 Tide CVS coupon and sample you will definitely want to use that coupon next week at CVS!

    Thanks! This prompted me to go look at the upcoming CVS ads. For the week of 5/4: "tide simply clean & fresh 25 loads $2.94" and the Q says any Tide so that should be a nice deal. :-)

    If it does not say MQ on it, it's probably really only good at CVS, and if the bar code looks a bit "odd" it definitely would be CVS only. But the week of 5/11, if www.iheartcvs.com is correct (some regional differences may apply), the Tide will be on sale for $5.94 ea. I don't know if they carry the Tide with Febreeze though.

  • Dr D May 2, 2014

    I received a free sample of Tide with Febreeze from P&G in yesterday's mail, accompanied by a $2 off any Tide coupon. The coupon has a CVS logo on it, it does not say Manufacturer's Coupon at the top, and in the fine print it does say Retailer's coupon. Any remote possibility this coupon might also be valid anywhere else? Is there a way to tell from the bar code? I don't have a smart phone, so no apps to help me there.

    Alrighty everyone.....this is the LAST CALL for the blog picnic that will take place tomorrow from 12:30pm-3:00pm. This is a great opportunity to meet and chat with the people that you talk to here on the blog everyday in person!!! Send me an email to let me know if you will be attending. We will have lots of goodies, lots of coupons, and lots of fun. Families with small children are welcome to come as there is a huge playground in front of the shelter. I look forward to see a few of you tomorrow!!! This will also be a coupon swap, but dont feel obligated to bring coupons....last year we had so many that we barely finished going through them all before it was time to go!!! Thanks again Faye for letting me do this again this year :)
