 ****With the $1+Up Rewards on the tape and envelopes this week, for every 2 tape rolls you buy you get paid $.51 & for every 2 boxes of envies after +Ups it cost you $.29.
I predict that Rite-Aids nationwide will run out of tape and envelopes very soon.lolol

The Eco-Tools are very hard to find in the store, IF the store has any that aren't the higher priced lotions, washes and butters.  The higher priced bottles($5.99 here)may have $1 hangtag Qs on them.  I don't recommend ripping them off the bottles and paying for the cheapy sponges, etc. with them!  That's not quite ethical, is it?
Instead buy a cheapy sponge AND a bottle with the hangtag Q.  This way you pay $4.99 for the bottled items, $.99 for the sponge(that one will be BOGO50% off) and you get the $5 +Ups on 2 Eco-Tools products.  You are out $.99 + tax for both items after +Up Rewards.  Still a great deal if you can't find 2 cheapy items to get the $5 +Ups.
The stores here didn't stock-up on the Airwick products so if you want some, get to Rite-Aid soon!
Good luck also finding any of the baking +Up Deal items, especially the Domino Sugar.  It's been WEEKS since I've seen a bag of sugar around here....and I have seriously been hunting for it.ugh

  1. You are my hero! I wish we had a Rite Aid.

  2. I stopped at Rite Aid this morning, hoping to find more Wonderful Pistachios for the latest 4-day sale. Nope, not even a spot for them anymore :P Oh well... I received an email from RA about my GOS total and without me doing any further receipt submissions, I somehow gained another $5 in valid receipt amounts (go figure), so now I need to "spend" about $9.75 more and I'll hit the $20 gc mark. Wooo! I have some things scoped out for the Sunday morning run that should more than do the trick :)

  3. Frances--I wish you had one too! ;-)

    Pretty--That's weird that there was NO spot for them, since the 8oz. size bags are a regularly stocked item at RA. Hmmmm
    And a heads up on the GOS deal....RA is suppose to send you an email after you send for your GOS cert. when it's ready to print. That email has a link to where to go to print the cert. out, and RA says it will be ready to print around 2 days after you submit/send for it.
    Well, I never got an email with the link for mine which was sent for last week sometime.
    I guess alot of others never got their link either, so they put a link on your GOS account site on the RA website! So if you don't get that email within a few days of submitting for the rebate/cert., go to your GOS account on the RA website and find the link, go there and print your cert. I printed mine last night and the Cert. doesn't expire until 4/30/11!!!


Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
