Clipping Service Hazards & More Free Stuff from Rite-Aid

First things first.....
I found this stuff still in my car from last Sunday's plundering of Rite-Aids.  #2 son it seems is not very thorough at emptying the car.

I've already added this stuff in my big honking "What I Bought" List and numbers from last Sunday.  I just wanted to get the photo out there too.

Onward to new business......

Because our Coupon Inserts suck here, we didn't get the $6 off 2 McNeil products coupon in last Sunday's paper.
This meant I had to enlist the aid of a Coupon Clipping Service to obtain that coupon.   The geographically closest person on eBay, with the auction ending soonest, to offer this coupon clipped was in Michigan.
I took a gamble that getting those set of coupons would mean they would actually arrive here before the Motrin PM sale ended on Saturday(1/15).
Well the coupons got here in Saturday's mail...yay!
I went out to use them that day and it ended up being a hop from Rite-Aid to Rite-Aid to collect rainchecks for the Motrin PM.
Seems other people also got those coupons in the mail too.

While I won't be adding to my +Up Rewards count in a raincheck situation, the Motrin PM will be $1 a box and the Precise psuedo Ben-Gay cream will be $2 a tube so I'll be able to get combinations of these products for free with the coupons.  8-)

I did buy a few things in my travels on Saturday while gathering rainchecks.
That's not to say I spent money however. ;-)

No anal breakdowns since these sales are over with now.

More free Barilla Pasta(after +Up Rewards), better than free Special K Cereal(up $2 in +Ups), better than free StayFree(up $2.50 in +Ups), and .19¢ soup, .35¢ rice, .50¢ marshmallows, and $1.89 a bag Fritos after the +Ups earned.
One store had a whole slew of Beauty Tools on 75% clearance so I picked up some righteous tweezers for .62¢ and .69¢ each.

  1. Are the Fritos giving Ups at RA? That would most certainly lure me back :)

  2. I really, really wish we had a Rite Aid. I need some free pasta.
