One advantage of checking out the grocery ads carefully is that you find out about special promotions that can save you money. The Proctor and Gamble company is currently offering a $10 Visa Prepaid Card for buying $40 or more in P&G products. In our area, the Meijer stores are advertising this special, which is good through August 4, 2012, but there are many other retailers throughout the country offering the same deal.
Admittedly, these are name brand products, which generally cost more than the generic or store brand. However, if you add in P&G coupons which are readily available, the total cost is further reduced.
Look around your home, and you may be surprised to see how many P&G products you use. The list includes detergents, facial tissues, paper towel, fabric softener, toilet paper, shampoo, batteries and more. Now is a good time to stock up, but it expires soon.
