Rite-Aid.....The Catching Up Post

I have 4 transactions to post today.....2 from last week's sales ad and 2 from this week that I did on Sunday.

The 1st transaction(sorry, no photo)I popped into Rite-Aid to buy a gallon of milk since I was fresh out and had $2 in +Ups to use up before last Saturday.
Well, silly me, the register wouldn't let me use +Ups to pay for milk here in PA.
bleh.
So I used a $1 Wellness AdPerks/VV Q and had to put the $2.73 left on my free Rite-Aid gift card.
That sure hurt using that HUGE amount of cash on my gift card!

Since I still had the +Ups to use up I let #2 son buy something.....
1 x spiral bound index cards w/20% wellness discount=$1.99
1 x cella cherry w/20% wellness discount=$.26
SubTotal....$2.25 + .02¢ tax=$2.27

I used the $2 in +Up Rewards and put the .27¢ on my gift card.

Then on Sunday I bought this.....
2 x Gillette ProGlide Razor on sale but 20% wellness discount less($9.03)=$18.06
SubTotal...$18.06

Coupons Used
1 x $1 Wellness AdPerks/VV Q=$1.00
2 x $4/1 Gillette Razor ManuQ(P&G insert)=$8.00
Coupon Total...$9.00

$18.06-$9.00=$9.06
I used $9 in +Ups to pay and put the .06¢ on my gift card.
I received $10 in +Up Rewards back(2 x $5 Gillette).

Then I bought this.....

4 x Crest Rinse on sale $5=$20.00
1 x Oral-B Pulsar Toothbrush on sale=$5.99
1 x Newspaper-$1.00 *not pictured*
SubTotal....$26.99

Coupons Used
1 x $3/$15 Pharmacy SurveyQ=$3.00
4 x $2/1 Crest Rinse ManuQ(P&G insert)=$8.00
1 x $3/1 Oral-B Pulsar Toothbrush ManuQ(P&G insert)=$3.00
Coupon Total....$14.00

$26.99-$14.00=$12.99

I used $11.50 in +Ups and put the $1.49 on my Rite-Aid gift card.(I now have $32.69 left on the gift card.)
I received $5 in +Up Rewards($5 wyb $25 any dental care items)AND I submitted for $12.99 in SCRs for the 4 Crest Rinses($10)and the Oral-B Toothbrush($2.99).

*Analysis*
*  The spiral bound index card booklet was a necessity for #2 son.  He is using this for his 'dot book' for marching band camp.  It is also a Mead product and might qualify for a SCR on Mead products, but I still have to submit the receipt information to see on that.
*  On the Gillette Razors--if you can find the ones with the sample sized shaving gel, etc. in them in your store, these also are on sale and qualify for the $5 +Up Reward this week.  Also note, there is a LIMIT of 2 of this Deal per Wellness Card.
*  The Crest Rinse and Oral-B Toothbrush are a Double Dip Deal this week!  Not only are they part of the $5 +Ups Deal WYB $25 in Dental Care Items(this deal runs through August), but they have their own separate Single Check Rebates if purchased THIS WEEK ONLY.  So spend $25.99 and get $5 in +Ups AND $12.99 in Cash rebates as well.  As you can see by my transaction, by using Qs, you can bring the actual initial cash outlay down(to between $14.99 and $10.99 depending on your Qs).  I 'spent' $11.99 after Qs and sale on these 5 items and I got/will get back $17.99($5 in +Ups and $12.99 in cash).
*  I wanted to get jars of Nutella for #2 son this week.  But bright and early on Sunday, Rite-Aid here had NO jars on the shelf!  I did however get a raincheck and I'm hoping they get some in before the end of August when my $1 off AdPerks/VV Q for it expires.
*  I spent all my +Ups on Sunday and now I only have the ones I received on Sunday, amounting to $15.  I may actually use up ALL my +Ups in the next week or so. This will be the first time I'll be +Ups-less since they started this program, over 1.5 years.  It will be nice NOT to feel compelled to go to Rite-Aid for awhile seeing as I have plenty of toiletries/HBA/paper goods right now. ;-)  I think I need to take a Rite-Aid sabbatical.lol

  2. Wow you are such a good influence on Mark!
    I can't believe that you are even thinking about taking a break. What the Hell will I do if I'm not reading about you running deals? God help me, I feel a panic attack coming on.

  4. Great deals, as usual!!! I noticed you had a $3/$15 survey coupon. I've read elsewhere that a lot of people are entering their codes but no longer getting the Q, then calling CS and being told either it's a computer glitch or that the survey coupon program is over.

    Just wondered what all you might know about this :) Since you are the RA Queen and all :D
