Albertson's has the 68.75oz bottles on sale for $2.99 each, limit of 2. Go to Arm & Hammer and click "Get Coupons" in the upper left corner. Fill out your name and email and then load the coupons.

Search & Win
Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards you for using them. (I use it instead of Google). You get points randomly for searching. For every so many you get, you an redeem your "Swagbucks" and buy something. 45 SBs is a $5 gift card, 130 SB is a $10 Starbucks Gift Card (my personal fav!). Anyways, you can save them up and get larger items, or redeem for $5 Amazon GCs over and over. Its pretty easy and since you use a search engine daily, why not earn $ from it? Click on the logo above to sign up!!

Oh- And this is a referral based website, so you should get people to sign up under you and then you can earn what they earn! (But it only goes one deep).

I have earned $40 in Starbucks Gift Cards so far!!

There is also a $1/1 Target Coupon (Peelie found on product) out that would pair up nicely with this. Its for a $1 off Polmolive Pure + Clear. (Newer kind) That is usually under $2 so free with Q.

HERE is .75/1 Q offered from the Polmolive website to use too for cheap soap!
