You’ll definitely clean up the savings with this deal. We love an easy, “clean” deal — no coupons, downloads, rebates or minimum purchase requirements necessary. This week, Walgreens is offering a deal on laundry detergent like we’ve never seen before. Through Saturday, September 23, get Xtra liquid laundry detergent for just 89¢ (30 or 34 loads) with your Balance Rewards card.
There’s no limit, so now’s the time to stock up. Now, before we get comments, we know many people are brand loyal, so the deal may not be for you. However, true bargain hunters tend not to be brand- or store-loyal. To people like us, most national brands are all the same. (Xtra laundry detergent is made by the Church & Dwight Co. The same people who make Arm & Hammer products.) As long as it cleans our clothes, we’re good and would rather save money than support one brand out of tradition. In any case, it’s a phenomenal deal!
