RUN, DO NOT WALK, to Babies R Us!!
Update--I went back to Babies R Us to pick up some more BabyGanics. Please note that the manager does need to enter his/her "code" to make the transaction work. For some reason the registers let the cashier take off the dishwasher detergent, but would not let her take off the full price of the laundry detergent without the managers code (I'm wondering if there's a price limit for the cashier to safe guard the company, so the cashiers don't have the ability to put through high value coupons without a manager's approval? (the kit's were $19.99, and laundry detergent $14.99).
The manager (different one then last time) did question me and I did have to "prove my case" about why I should be allowed to use the coupon with the sale, but once I explained it (and told him that the dishwasher soap when through without any problem) he agreed and had the asst. manager enter her code. If you have the coupons, I'd say it's worth a try, the worst thing that can happen is they say no. I'd give corporate a call if your manager isn't agreeable.
Believe me you will be glad you did. First step, go to your local WalMart to see if you can find hang tags on BabyGanics products. The hang tags I had were bogo. Conveniently, Babies R Us is having a BOGO sale on BabyGanics products. Also don't forget to bring your 7th generation coupons for the bogo 1/2 off sale. If you're a regular organic shopper you know that most of these cleaners run $4-7 bucks a pop. My Babies R Us had them all on clearance for $1.99!!
Here's what I got:
1 box of seventh generation dish detergent $1.99
1 bottle of fabric softener (a little beat up but who cares) $1.99
2 Bottles of toilet cleaner $1.99 each
2 bottles of liquid dish detergent for dish washer $1.99 each
2 bottles of multi purpose cleaner $1.99 each
2 bottles of BabyGanics dish washer detergent $6.99 each
2 bottles of BabyGanics laundry detergent $14.99 each!
2 BabyGanics Essentials kits (these include a cleaner, air freshener, foaming hand sanitizer, dish soap, and bonus pack of wipes) $19.99 each!
3, $1.00 off any 7th generation product coupon
2, $2.00 off 2 seventh generation cleaner coupon (hang tags on bottles)
3, BOGO BabyGanics hang tags (found at WalMart)
$8.75 ($3.77 of which was sales tax!), did two separate transactions so I'll submit for two 7th generation rebates (one of which I'll submit for my mom, Thanks mom!)
Total MADE (yes that's right I MADE money buying everything above):
$1.25! plus $95.82 worth of free product (sale prices, not retail prices!!) I was so pleased with myself I was almost shaking when I got to the parking lot. Woo hoo!Now I can toss (donate) all of my old cleaners and switch to all organic yay!
