Michelle's Markdowns: 75-percent off of Tide, Febreze, Cascade and more

WILMINGTON, NC (WSFX) - Recently there have been deals on top of deals, and one is the Proctor and Gamble deal at Harris Teeter.

The promo boils down to this - if you buy $30 worth of qualifying Proctor and Gamble products (P&G), then you'll get a $10 pre-paid card from the group Keeping Military Families Connected.

The greatest thing is that could easily pay less than $10 for the lot with coupons and e-vic coupons from Harris Teeter.  E-vic coupons are different from your VIC card.  So, if you haven't signed up for e-vic coupons, do it on the HT website.

Here are some examples:

Cascade packs normally cost $5.65.  It's on sale for $4.49.  There's a coupon from last Sunday's paper for $.50-cents off.  It doubles.  So, you get the Cascade for $3.49.

The same goes for Tide.  It normally costs $8.49, but it's on sale for $6.99.  You can use a $.50-cent coupon from the Sunday paper that also doubles.  That makes it $5.99.

Febreze Set and Refresh packs regularly cost $3.49 but are on sale for $2.99.  I had a coupon for $1 off and there's an e-vic coupon for another $1 off.  That makes it $.99-cents OOP (out of pocket.)

**The bottom line is that once you get to $30 before coupons, (but after the sale price-- meaning you count the $4.49 price of Cascade, for example, you'll get the $10 card.  NOTE:  It will print out as you pay for the items.

This is one of those deals that I'm not entirely thrilled about because I have to pay the money up front.  BUT, in reality, I know I'll need all these items, so I don't mind spending $12 for $46.19 worth of stuff.  Smart shoppers I know, like Amanda from The Frugal Beach Bum Blog, shopped smarter than me and only ended up paying about $8 or $9 for her stash.  I think I bought an extra P & G product than her.  It kind of reminds me of algebra to find the right P&G formula!
