This week there are several stores that are going to give you a free (or really darn cheap) Brita water pitcher.
Well, if you picked up a Sunday paper, there should be a coupon in it for $4 off any Brita product. Most 5-gallon water pitchers are a between $9 - $17. Then, if you send in a $10 rebate, you'll get it for nothing. OR, you'll even get paid for it.
WHAT IF MY SUNDAY PAPER DIDN'T HAVE THAT COUPON? Well, at least you're not alone. Though Smart Source inserts made their way across the country, not all Smart Source inserts are equal. It depends on where you live. Since I live in a smaller town, I didn't get the insert. But, aha, there is a solution.
1. You can print off the $5 coupon from Target.
2. Buy the pitcher for about $16.99
3. Send in the $10 rebate. (Thanks to southernsavers.com for posting it in a nice pdf for us)
Can't say I love rebates, but this isn't bad!
Unfortunately or Fortunately, some stores are cheaper... and so, if your city is big enough to give you the coupon insert that includes the Brita pitcher, then you can actually make a couple of bucks off the purchase. But, as far as I know... this is the best deal for people who don't have access to it. I still don't mind paying $2.
