Harris Teeter Saturday Special on Gain
Harris Teeter just had a special on Gain a couple of weeks ago and another one is back this Saturday! Besides the awesome price, I love how I can choose from all the wonderful assortment of scents at Harris Teeter!
This Sat. you can get Gain Laundry Detergent (50 oz) for $3.77 at Harris Teeter! That's already an awesome price, but what happens when you apply coupons?
There was a $1.00 off coupon in last Sunday's Red Plum insert. That will double to $2.00 off, making the Gain only $1.77!
On top of that, there is a $1.00 EVIC digital coupon (from my Harris Teeter emails) for an extra $1.00 off of one Gain. That brings the price down to $.77! What an amazing price! You really can't beat that deal.
How does this compare with Sam's Club? Sam's Club's price on Gain Landry Detergent is $19.98 for 225 ounces. That comes out to be 8.8 cents per ounce.
At the special Harris Teeter sale price with coupons, it comes out to 1.5 cents per ounce! What a big difference! At that price, 225 ounces at Harris Teeter would run you $3.38 versus $19.98 at Sam's Club! Now you see why I say it pays to buy the smaller sizes on sale at the grocer every few weeks and use coupons versus buying the bigger sizes at the warehouse clubs. Not only are the bigger sizes heavier to carry but you're paying more for them anyway, so why bother?
Last question- what if you don't have any coupons and just bought the detergent at Harris Teeter on sale? Is it still a better deal than Sam's Club? Let's see....
Harris Teeter Gain EVIC price- $3.77 for 50 ounces= 6.7 cents per ounce versus Sam's Club's 8.8 cents per ounce. So, 225 ounces would be $19.98 at Sam's Club versus $15.07 at Harris Teeter. So, again, even if you don't use coupons, you're still saving by buying on sale at the grocery store instead of at the warehouse club BUT as you can see, you save drastically more when you can add in those coupons!
