We might have a bump in the road with the All Detergent SavingStar offer. I was including the “free” detergents as part of the $15 minimum purchase that we must meet to get the $5 SavingStar refund. I had several readers question that scenario and several more who said they shopped bogo sales in the past and the “free” items did not count.
I contacted SavingStar and I was told that since the “free” items ring up as zero, they will not count. I do not like this wording in their reply because when I sent my question I specifically told them that our free items ring up as regular price then are deducted after the fact. So our items are not actually ringing up as zero.
I talked to Shaw’s last night after I got that reply from SavingStar and although they can’t be sure, they said the bogos both ring up at regular price then it deducts as “free item” but does not specifically state the item.
What this all boils down to is that I’m no longer sure that buying 4 All Detergents will satisfy SavingStar, and that brings the price up for the All. If you do the deal, you may very well have to spend on more All stuff to reach the $15 minimum to get your refund.
My advice is if you are a newbie, or if you are not desperate for detergent, skip this deal! It’s just not worth the headache. I will not be doing it because I don’t want to take the chance that it does not work, especially since I really don’t need detergent.
If anyone does the deal like this post says, and it works for you, please let us know!
