I don’t regularly share shopping trips anymore (I was getting kinda bored with it, plus I don’t use coupons as much in grocery stores) but every once in awhile I have such savings using coupons, sales, and store promotions that I want to share so you all will be inspired to make some deals, too.
It’s usually at Rite Aid, too. Man, I can get some good deals at that store (see my How to Shop Rite Aid). I am kinda bummed that they seem to be replacing the Single Check Rebates with the +UP rewards which are just the same as Walgreens Register Rewards which expire within two weeks. Ugh. I hate having to remember these because I just don’t need to shop every week. Hopefully they’ll keep some of the rebates and gift card deals, ’cause they make it extra sweet!
But I do like the new Wellness card- not the part where I have to remember to hand it to them, but the fact that all the prices are cheaper than listed when you use it and when you accumulate a certain number of points by buying things, you get moved to the next level and save even more! This is a little tricky when I’m trying to get to the $25 amount to use the $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon, but I’m willing to be flexible.
Like a couple days ago when I needed toilet paper. Rite Aid didn’t have a screaming deal on toilet paper, 12 big rolls for $6.49 (plus a $1 +UP reward). In fact, Albertson’s has Cottonelle this week for $4.99, so why didn’t I just buy it there?
Because I came up with this deal after seeing the coupons Rite Aid had in their sale flyer this week:
1 Charmin TP, $6.49 -$1/1 manufacturer coupon (mfc) that came in the mail =$5.49
2 C Booth lotions, $6.56 -(2) $6/1 RA coupons from the flyer = $1.12!!!
2 Clearasil products, $5.21 -(2) $3/1 RA flyer coupons + (2) $1/1 mfc (from Sunday Inserts)= $2.42
I used a $5/$25 RA coupon (from Red Plum or Video Values) which they take before all coupons (love, love, love that) plus two $1 +UP rewards from a previous trip (yeah- I remembered!) for a grand total of:
Yeah, pretty cheap TP. Sorry Albertsons…
Are you getting any deals at Rite Aid? There’s still time today (if they have any items left…)
