I finally decided to try the persil out after reading such good things about it. What online stores are good to purchase this from?
I know there are probably better places but I bought mine here at Best Vacuum they carry Miele products. And free shipping.
Also Amazon has the Persil detergents.

To me, for over $1 a load it should dry, fold and put the clothes away for me too! :)
No doubt in my mind it's a good detergent, but I can't rationalize that kind of price.
Let us know what you think of it when you get it.
I ordered a box of persil universal powder last night, not the megapearls. Ive used it before with great washing and rinsing results. I hope it has not changed in quality. I paid 59.00 dollars, for the 75 wash load box and free shipping. The last time I bought it, it lasted me for months, so the price seems fair to me. My friends buy name brand soap then add to it, clorax 2, and oxyclean and I am not one for adding additional additives to laundry. If I have to do all that, then my detergent must not be working right
This was the best deal I found when I looked around last week. I just wanted to try so didn't want a super huge box. This one works out to 70 cents per load -- but catch it while the sale is still on because the normal price is $35.

Here is another site to buy Persil. 45 load size Megaperls is $40. I'm not sure about shipping costs, but note that they have many local stores around the country (including my hometown.)

The Euro grocery store, hands down has the best price.
45 is just 19.99 there, if you order a certain amt it's free to ship. I also bought a huge box of Ariel there
Ariel is 10 kg for $79.99
Both Persil & Ariel are listed under "cosmetics" on that site in case you're looking for it any other way.
I bought mine from Better Products Online. The 75-load box was $64 plus free shipping. It's now priced at $75, but that's still pretty good.

$1 a load for clean close too expensive ???? You obviously don't value yourself very highly.
Ever buy a bottled water or soda pop? Spent a buck on that didn't ya? How bout a Starbucks at $5
It's all realative.
antss, I don't think charging $40+ for a box of detergent is appropriate. $1 per load is extremely high when you compare the cost to less exotic products which are 1/5-1/3 the cost. Plenty of other products accomplish the same task at much lower cost. It's a personal preference. Many here love Vaska and claim it's as good or better than Persil. The cost? Just $9.99 for 32 loads, or 31 cents per load - less than 1/3 the cost of Persil.
Getting good results in the laundry has nothing to do with how much money you spend on products.
Mielemaid, Euro Food Mart is falsely advertising on their site. While they are advertising a 45-load size box of Megaperls for $19.99, what they actually ship is the Universal Gold powder which is half as concentrated. You end up getting half of what you thought for the $19.95, and ends up being no cheaper than a $40 box of 45-load Megaperls from another web site.
