Right now on Amazon you can get Tide Pods Detergent Ocean Mist 77 Count for $19.22 with free shipping if you have Prime – or with a $25 purchase of Super Saver Items (see all of our Amazon deals if you need an idea on getting you over the $25 amount). That works out to $.25 per load and this includes Detergent, Stain Remover and Brightener – and no tax or driving. I ordered 2 so I get them shipped free and don’t have to worry about it again for a bit.
I love Tide and am pretty loyal to it if I can – so my buy price is about $.10 per ounce – although I’m really happy when I find it for $.08 per ounce. Now honestly, I don’t know EXACTLY how many ounces I’m using per load – I do large loads and I’m thinking probably 2-3 ounces (what do you use?) per load, which works out to $.08/ounce x 3 ounces/load = $.24/load if not just a little less. (I know my husband and kids use way more than I do – so I like that these are already measured out.) Just about the same price/load, no driving, no coupons, no tax and you get the Stain Remover and Brightener included.
