Kmart: Purex Laundry Detergent as low as $.67

by Clippin' with Carie on March 7, 2011. This post may contain affiliate links.Affiliate Link


My friend Lisa, dialed my digits and asked me to come down to Kmart and help her with a deal!  Good thing I did, cause it ended up being better than she what she was talking about on the phone!

Not only is the Purex Liquid Laundry Detergent (50 oz – 32 load) on sale 2/$5, but when you buy $20 worth of Purex you get a $5 off $5 Purchase Kmart Coupon, when you buy $30 worth, you get a $10 off $10 Purchase Coupon!!

So here’s the details!!

Purex Liquid Laundry Detergent (50 oz – 32 load) 2/$5
Buy 12
Use (12) $1/1 Purex Laundry Detergent Coupons (2/20 RP)
Pay $18 (+tax)
Get back a $10/$10 Purchase coupon
Final Price = 12 for $8 or just $.67 each


Purex Liquid Laundry Detergent (50 oz – 32 load) 2/$5
Buy 8
Use (8) $1/1 Purex Laundry Detergent Coupons (2/20 RP)
Pay $12 (+tax)
Get back a $5/$5 Purchase coupon
Final Price = 8/$7 or just $.88 each

The Purex Complete with Zout and the 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets were not on sale at my store, they were $5.65, but they are included in the coupon back deal, so you can get a great deal on those as well!!

You could buy
(5) Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets or Zout for $5.65 each = $28.25
(1) Purex Liquid for $2.50

Subtotal $30.75
Use (5) $3/1 Purex Sheets or Zout Coupons (2/20 RP)
Use (1) $1/1 Purex Liquid (2/20 RP)
Pay $14.75 (+tax)
Get back a $10/10 Coupon
Final Price = 6/$4.75 or just $.80 each!!

Mix it up however you like…it’s not FREE, but it’s a good deal worth stocking up on!!

***I think you need to use your Shopyourway Rewards card to get this…my $10 off $10 coupon says “Shop Your Way Rewards Members Only”…PLUS I got a $4/$40 Purchase Catalina at the same time.

How do you get so many RP coupons?


2 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 2:15 pm

I order extras from clipping services


3 pam March 7, 2011 at 7:26 pm

how do you order extras?


4 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Through a clipping service, you can check their sites (you will find their buttons on the right sidebar) CouponDede, My Coupon Hunter or Clippincraz. Just click one of their buttons and you can just order them on line and pay using paypal.


5 Danielle Goewert March 7, 2011 at 2:24 pm

What services? How long does it take to get the coupons?


6 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 2:31 pm

You can find their buttons on my right side bar…Coupon Dede, My Coupon Hunter and ClippinCraz. Not sure who has any left in stock, I ordered mine when they first came out. ClippinCraz is local to St Louis so I ususally get mine the next day! The others are not local and take a couple days to get (at least for me)


7 Esther March 7, 2011 at 2:26 pm

I did this deal sunday before Church. It also gave me cat for $4 off my next $40 purchase.


8 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 2:32 pm

I just added that to my post after cleaning out my wallet of all my receipts, I found it!


9 lynette March 7, 2011 at 2:29 pm

dangit I already used mine at CVS the other day but I only paid 2$ and some change for 10 of them mixed up because I had Eb’s from a previous order.. Dangit, I could of saved my EB’s lol


10 Danielle Goewert March 7, 2011 at 2:55 pm

Thanks I found some. One more question is I thought K-Mart doubled some coupons?


11 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 2:56 pm

They only double during special events…this is not one of those times (ALTHOUGH I WISH IT WAS!!)


12 Danielle Goewert March 7, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Thanks again. I am new at this and I am trying to understand it all and figure out what is a good deal to by and what is not. I am thinking cheap laundry soap is a good thing:) Thanks for your wonderful site


13 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Cheap Laundry Detergent is a GOOD thing!

Personally 12 is too many for my house since I have an abundance of cheap laundry detergent, but I went ahead and bought 12 and will donate some to the Girl Scouts April Showers event that’s coming up!


14 Melissa March 8, 2011 at 12:11 am

Kmart had a double event last week.

15 Allison March 7, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Do they do rain checks on these if they are out when i get there. I am ordering some coupons from Ebay and they wont get here until Friday. Not sure what to do


16 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 2:57 pm

I am not sure about that…you may want to call your local store to verify!!


17 deidre March 7, 2011 at 2:56 pm

These are part of the Spend $30, get a $10 off your next purchase promo – view more items on the Kmart promo this week:


18 Beckie March 7, 2011 at 3:24 pm

How do you become a rewards member??


19 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 3:35 pm

You can sign up right at customer service!! It’s free and pretty easy!!


20 Amanda March 7, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Can anyone tell me if this includes the Purex Free & Clear or Purex Baby? I’m trying to stock up for the little one on the way.

The closest K-Mart is 40 minutes away but I might have to go check this out since I have a bunch of these Q’s to use up! Thanks for the heads up 🙂


21 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 3:38 pm

I didn’t see purex baby at my store…I did see the Purex Free and clear and it was on the same end cap as the others, but I did not price check it separately. I did price check the HE since that is what I use and it was the same 2/$5. If your Kmart is so far away, you may want to call them and ask them to do a price check for you on your exact needs, so you don’t waste money on gas!


22 Amanda March 7, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Thanks so much for the info! A phone call would probably be a great idea. I don’t mind driving down there but I’d like to make it worth my while with gas prices the way they are!


23 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 4:30 pm

I hear ya there!!


24 Crystal March 7, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Was the laundry soap the only thing you purchased in this one transaction to get the catalina to print? I saw on another site someone mentioned that you had to spend $20 AFTER coupons…..just curious before I head to K-mart. Thank you!!!!


25 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 4:31 pm

I only bought the laundy detergent…eveything else at my Kmart is too high priced!!


26 Tasha March 7, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Can you use the $10/10 coupon right away on another transaction?? I am about 45 minutes away from KMart and would want to use the coupon then so it didn’t expire.



27 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 8:30 pm

It doesn’t say that you can’t. If I wasn’t in a hurry, I would have just used it right then and there, cause it would have saved me a trip later


28 Tammy March 7, 2011 at 5:50 pm

I cant find this anywhere in my ad? Is this unadvertised or maybe not in my area? Any help would be appreciated.


29 Clippin' with Carie March 7, 2011 at 8:29 pm

I saw the signs up in the store…I didn’t notice it in the ad, but I didn’t get an ad this week in my paper and had tried to find it on the online ad for my area but I didn’t see it on there


30 Melissa March 8, 2011 at 12:14 am

So the total doesn’t have to be $30 after coupons?


31 Clippin' with Carie March 8, 2011 at 6:49 am

Total is before coupons


32 Carla March 8, 2011 at 8:30 am

I went and did the deal last night and the new Kmart policy is that you must buy the $20 or $30 after tax and coupons. In order for the Catalina to print. Its a new Policy and printed in small print in their ads now. 🙁


33 Clippin' with Carie March 8, 2011 at 9:23 am

I was not a catalina coupon that printed…it printed a coupon that was on the register tape. When did they put this new policy in place?? My total was $19.05 with tax after coupons and it printed just fine.


34 Sarah March 8, 2011 at 10:54 am

Hi Carla –

So when you did this last night, did the coupon print for you? I really dont like Kmart and it is far for me, so I am up in the air for this deal…


35 Carla March 8, 2011 at 10:03 am

Hopefully if you use the rewards card it works? The policy is in small print on the bottom of the flyer on the 1/2 page that is has the advertisement of the deal on it. Did anybody else try this deal?


36 Amanda March 8, 2011 at 12:29 pm

I’ve read a couple people report now that it did not work for them based on the use of coupons and total being below the threshold. I’m wondering if K-Mart updated something in their computer? Obviously if you call they’re going to say it is AFTER coupons because that’s what the fine print in the ad says (I found it online by searching Purex when I pulled up the ad). Also, did the people who tried it use their Rewards card? Hmmm….to try, or not to try. That is the question! 🙂


37 Clippin' with Carie March 8, 2011 at 1:06 pm

I just got back from Kmart again and tried another transaction (less than 2 minutes ago) and had no problems with it!

I bought (3) purex 3-in-1 Laudry Sheets at $5.65 each = $16.95
I bought (2) Purex Liquid at 2/$5 = $5
I used (4) $3/1 Coupons (- $12)
I’m out of Liquid Laundry Coupons, but wanted to test it again
I then used my $10/$10 Coupon that I got from the deal yesterday
My total OUT OF POCKET with tax = $3.18

Then I received another $5/5 Coupon!

I did not receive my ad this week, but while I was in store I picked up an ad and I saw the deal in the 1/2 sheet wrap around!


38 Amanda March 8, 2011 at 1:38 pm

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for trying it again to confirm! I’ll be down towards K-Mart tomorrow and hope to stop in and try it out.


39 Amanda March 8, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Also, if you do a second transaction….do you think you can you stack the $10/10 and the $5/5 as long as your subtotal is greater than $15 before coupons?


40 Clippin' with Carie March 8, 2011 at 1:53 pm

the kmart coupon states one per transaction so i suggest you roll it instead of trying to pile it


41 Amanda March 8, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Works for me 🙂

42 Carla March 8, 2011 at 5:08 pm

From what I’m hearing it works if you use your Rewards Card, my own fault for not doing that. 🙁 But, is great to know for everyone in the future, to use reward cards when you do Catalinas! Thanks for your awesome post!


43 Amanda March 8, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering if that was the case for the couple people I saw it didn’t work for…not using the Rewards card. I don’t have one yet so I’ll have to remember and sign up first!


44 Amanda March 9, 2011 at 2:01 pm

Tried the deal today in South Jersey with no luck. I scanned my Rewards card first and purchased the following:

12 Purex Free & Clear $2.50 = $30.00
-(12) $1/1 coupons
Subtotal $18.00
Tax $2.10
Total $20.10

I did not get a coupon at the bottom of my receipt. I did get a separate coupon for $4/40. Boo 🙁


45 Kristin M March 10, 2011 at 3:34 pm

Yikes, did you speak to the manager? I am looking at ad right now and nowhere does it say coupons cannot be used. It does say after other discounts have been applied, but a coupon is NOT a discount – they are reimbursed just like you are using cash. I purchased 40 of these qs, should be here tomorrow and I will be darned if I don’t get mine!


46 Kari March 15, 2011 at 8:49 am

How long does or did the deal last? (I mean with the catalinas)


47 Clippin' with Carie March 15, 2011 at 11:31 am

That deal is over, but the catalinas don’t expire for two weeks after you receive them
