I needed fabric softener.
Costco had $2.00 coupon on Downy Fabric Enhancer.
From the very start, I thought maybe Kirkland Signature’s fabric softener could be a better deal (compared Downy – with $2.00 coupon).
Below is what I saw at Costco… I didn’t bring my calculator at that time. So, I went with my gut feeling and decide not to use $2.00 coupon on Downy. I bought Kirkland Signature fabric softener instead.
Then I came home and did some calculating.
Downy Fabric Enhancer
$9.96 – ($2.00 coupon) = $7.96
Unit price per load = $.53
Kirkland Signature Fabric Enhancer
$8.69 (everyday price)
Unit price per load = $.50
My gut feeling was right. Kirkland Signature’s fabric softener was still cheaper without coupon.
So, when in doubt? pick Kirkland Signature over coupon items.
