Last Rite-Aid Trips for August & Grand Totals for the Month

Basically, I've been on a break from Rite-Aid this month.
Not a full break, but I haven't darkened their door much and when I went there, I didn't haul much home.
As a result I don't have many +Up Rewards left or many items to report.

And face it, the fact that I had 2 Stockpile/Garage Sales this summer where I sold the stuff I get from Rite-Aid AND I still have a big load of stuff left, I really don't NEED to be hauling things home from Rite-Aid. ;-)

First let's catch up on 2 weeks ago.
2 sales ads ago I bought this.....

1 x Nutella raincheck price=$2.50
1 x Crest complete toothpaste on sale(20% wellness discount less)=$3.43

Coupons Used
1 x $1/1 Nutella AdPerk/VV Q=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Crest toothpaste ManuQ=$1.00
Coupon Total....$2.00

$5.93-$2.00=$3.93 OOP
I used $3 in +Up Rewards and put the .93¢ on my gift card($30.55 balance).
I received $2 in +Up Rewards for the Crest toothpaste.
At least I was suppose to get $2 in +Ups.
My receipt says "you have received the maximum number of +Ups for this offer".
The sales ad states Limit of 1 +Ups offer for this sale item.
Well this was my one and only transaction at Rite-Aid that week, so it was my one and only tube of Crest that week.  Don't know how I could have maxed out on the offer.lol
I have had so much going on here with the kids' college stuff I didn't get around to contacting Rite-Aid about this screw up.  I may just return it as it's turning into a huge hassle, at least in my mind, and the last thing I NEED is more toothpaste, right?lol
Moving on.....

I went back this past Friday evening to check for Nutella and bought this.....

2 x Nutella raincheck price=$5.00
1 x Crest toothpaste! on sale=$2.99  *Yes MORE of the SAME toothpaste, but a smaller tube

Coupons Used
1 x $1/1 AdPerks/VV Wellness Q=$1.00
2 x $1/1 Nutella AdPerks/VV Q=$2.00
1 x $1/1 Crest toothpaste ManuQ=$1.00
Coupon Total....$4.00

$7.99-$4.00=$3.99 OOP
I used $3 +Up Rewards and put the .99¢ on my gift card(balance of $29.56).

I DID receive the $2 +Up Rewards for the Crest this time.  That week, the smaller Crest complete tube gave a $2 +Up and the limit was 2, but I only bought 1.

Now I KNOW you are wondering why all the toothpaste.
Well, there is a SCR #35--Buy $25 of select Crest/Oral-B/Scope items and get a $5 rebate.  I needed $5 more so the last 2 toothpaste tubes were to put me over $25.

That's easy.....#2 son is addicted to it.  I need to purchase stock in that company....it's THAT bad here!lol

The August SCR Period ends today, Tuesday, August 30th.  I don't plan on going to Rite-Aid today, so this is my end of the month post.

Number of Transactions.....2
Total Spent....$1.92 put on free gift card
Value of Items....$19.05
SCR qualified for...$5.00
Other Rebates earned...$0.00
Gift Cards earned....$0.00
+Up Rewards earned...$4.00 *but I only have $2 right now*
+Up Rewards spent.....$6.00
+Up Rewards left to spend.....$4.00
And I have $29.56 left on my gift card.

And now, the monthly totals.

Rite-Aid GRAND TOTALS--AUGUST Rebate Period

Number of Transactions......10
Total Spent....$7.68 put on free Gift Cards/Certificates so ZERO OOP

Number of Items purchased.....57
Value of Items purchased....$156.77

Other Cash....$0.00
Additional Rebates....$0.00
Additional Non-Cash Rewards....$0.00

+Up Rewards carryover from 8/13.....$6.00

+Up Rewards spent....$46.50

So in August, I spent $7.68 of my free gift card "money", brought home $156.77 worth of items and Rite-Aid will be sending me cash rebates of $22.99 for shopping there.

How was your month at Rite-Aid?



  1. You know what's scary, I'm starting to understand this.
    Question: You can't get 20% off of milk? What else? m.

  2. Mark--Scary, isn't it?lol
    No discount on phone cards, gift cards, milk, smokes, prescriptions, newspapers, lottery tickets(if yours sells them).....that's all I can think of right now.

  3. You did really well. I wish, I wish, I could "shop" in your garage!
    Nutella is super cheap by you! It's normally $5 a jar here. I would wipe the place out if I could get it for $2.50. I ration it out. You obviously love your son more than I love mine!

  4. Thanks! I tried to buy some milk and didn't get the discount. That kind of pissed me off but I guess that's just how it is.
    Thanks! m.

  5. I will have you know that there is nothing wrong with an addiction to nutella...i kinda have one myself..and um...oh never mind


  6. SonyaAnn--I would never buy it at $5 a jar...ok, maybe I shouldn't go making statements like that since it will come back to bite me in the rear some day.lol
    And you are welcomed to come shop in my garage anytime, though the gas to get here would be a killer. ;-)

    Mark--You can thank the PA dairy board for not being able to get a discount on milk. State regulated prices. You might be better off slipping over the state line to a Rite-Aid where you can get your discount.lol

    Judy--lol I didn't say the addiction was bad, the having a mother who only buys it when it's on sale is bad, at least for my 15 year old. 8-)
