Bonus Buy Shampoo

Another way that I save money when I'm shopping is by looking for items marked with the BONUS sign. These shampoo bottles have a small yellow oval on the top of the bottle that states, BONUS 33% More, which means you will get 30 ounces of shampoo for the regular price of $1.46 instead of the regular size bottle which has 22.5 ounces. 

Now this is an increase in price from when I bought it a year ago and blogged about it here. The 22.5 ounce bottle cost $1.38 in July of 2011. The other day when I was shopping I took my usual route through the store and went by the shampoo aisle to see if there were any bonus bottles. To my surprise there were several bottles, and I picked up eight of them. 

The BONUS bottles give me more shampoo for the same amount of money, which is a great bargain. Let's do the math: 

8 bottles x 30 ounces = 240 ounces

8 bottles x 22.5 ounces  = 180 ounces

A difference of 60 ounces, which is like getting almost three bottles for free, which is a savings of over $4.00! 
This is just another example of how we save money at the Frugal Workshop. Next time you are in the store check and see if they have any BONUS bottles of shampoo.  :)

  1. I find this frequently with vitamins and supplements, as well. The count is crossed out and a new number is next to it. For example 120 by be lined out, but 150 is the new count. Funny, though, side by side will be the bottle with the old amount, and I don't think a lot of folks even notice there is a difference.

    Thanks for the reminder to always check for a bonus version!

    1. Thank you, Lili, for the info on vitamins. I didn't think about those. I've been using the Caltrate Gummy Bites and would love to find those in a bonus bottle! :)

  2. That is a great find. I try to look for bonus amounts on whatever I can. I'm the only one that uses whatever brand is on sale. Daughter has to have medicated shampoo and hubby has used Head & Shoulders since way before I met him.

    1. Thank you, Shara. :) I'm like you, I buy whatever is on sale. I'm glad my daughter doesn't object. I do like Head & Shoulders though and every once in a blue moon, I will spring for a bottle. It is very nice. :)
