Rite-Aid & Complaining

Boy, you hit the jackpot today!
You get to see the spoils from my latest trip to Rite-Aid AND you get to hear complaining.
Lucky, Lucky YOU!

A quickie to Rite-Aid last's a slow week again there.....

2 x Gillette Sensor 3 disposable razors on sale $7.49=$14.98
1 x Conair VIBE hairbrush on sale but 20% Wellness disc. cheaper=$2.63
1 x Revlon tweezer w/20% Wellness discount=$2.39
2 x Milky Way DARK(Mmmmm) candy bars on sale BOGO=$.99

Coupons Used
1 x $2/1 Gillette disposable razors ManuQ(7/22 RP)=$2.00
1 x BOGO Gillette disposable razors ManuQ(8/5 RP)=$7.49
1 x $2/1 Revlon Eye Beauty Tools AdPerk IPQ=$2.00
1 x .75/2 Milky Way candy bars IPQ(no longer available)=$.75
Coupon Total.....$12.24

$20.99-$12.24=$8.75 + .06¢tax=$8.81

I used $8 in +Up Rewards and put the .81¢ on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received back $6 in +Up Rewards(2x$2 WYB Gillette disposable razor pack, 1x$2 WYB Vibe hairbrush or Scuncii hairbands).

The tweezers should give me enough to get the SCR #30(Purchase $5 worth of beauty tools/Get $2).
I was at $4.50 with the last 2 tools I bought so now will be over $5.
Last month's SCR for beauty tools R-A counted the reg. shelf price, even if you bought them on a BOGO50% deal.
So I spent $8 in +Ups and got back $6 +Ups and $2 SCR cash.

*With the 2 razor Qs, I believe these both can be used on Mach 3 or Sensor 3  razors.  Read the wording, look at the picture on it to be sure.  My store was out of the Mach3(since that is the one all the deal bloggers told everyone to buy), but you can use on Sensor 3 as well.

And here is the Deal I wanted to do to CONVERT some +Ups to cash, but my store doesn't carry this product.....
Part of this BOGO50% Deal is the Luster Now! Mouthrinse.  It's usually $6.99 reg. shelf price, so 2 bottles on this sale would be $10.48.

I had these coupons to use....

2 x $1.50/1 IPQ(from their website)=$3.00
2 x $1.25/1 R-A Oral Care book Q=$2.50

$10.48-$5.50=$4.98, (and you pick up a small item(Cella cherry)to get your total over $5.  Then you use $5 in +Ups to pay and pay the small change amount left OOP.

Then you take your receipt and apply for SCR #28--Luster Now! Mouthrinse $3 rebate on each.
There is a limit of 2 of this rebate per household, so you get $6 cash back.
Spend $5 in +Ups(and some change), Get $6 cash back.
Awesome, right? 8-)
But only if you can find a store that carries it.  Mine carries the toothpaste and the whitening strips in this brand but not the mouthrinse. 8-(

And that's probably my only trip this week.
Slow week for my needs......they can't all be a trip to the circus.

And I probably thought I forgot about the complaining I promised you in the title, right?

Well I didn't forget.....but for a change, it's NOT ME complaining!
Evidently I ticked someone off enough that they couldn't be satisfied with leaving a comment on the post, they had to email me privately.
Seems my blog is just for bragging about my Rite-Aid trips.
Because I didn't post details like a deal blogger.
And I posted it AFTER the store had closed that night and the sale was over for the week.

First off, this ain't a deal blog.
I tried that but it bored even ME to tears!lol
It was too much work, too much pressure and just plain boring.
I sit here and pound out posts for the pleasure in it.
I am NOT making a living off this blog.

Blogging?.....for money?.....Really??!!

In the immortal words of Austin Meyers....."That ain't my bag baby!"

You want some suggestions for deal bloggers to follow, let me know and I'll post a few. 

And secondly, I don't usually get to the store until later in the week.
I am not sitting in my car at the crack of dawn waiting on Rite-Aid to unlock their doors on Sunday morning.
If I did I think my store would force me to get a job there and start opening for them......I am there a lot but not on a regular basis and NEVER early in the morning.....unless I stayed up all night. hehe

I try to post details on what I buy/what coupons I use if I think it will help someone else see a deal.
So yeah, I guess some days my Rite-Aid posts are mainly bragging.
So sue me......wait, don't do that!

Ok, it's thundering like a bitch here so I am off for awhile.
Everyone leave a comment of the awesome deal you got this week somewhere.

I know SonyaAnn bought every pack of bacon in a 3 state area last week for a ridiculously small cost!
I want to know when she is inviting me over for BLTs!?!? Mmmmmmm....bacon.......



  1. Okay, it wasn't me who complained. Cause I have no idea what a "deal blog" is anyway!

    1. As long as the box wine holds out I think I'll never get a complaint outta you

  2. They were perhaps ragging on you for the comedic value? :-) After all, you're funny when you're pissed!

  3. I hope that complainer didnt quite mean it!~ I am sure there are a hundred places detailing deals, so they should look there. I for one enjoy just hearing about your achievements in the Rite-Aid type, especially since I dont have one of such stores anywhere nearby. I think half of the deal-thrill is doing them yourself and discovering new ways to combine coupons and sales.

  4. You bragger you! Good grief. Some people have WAY too much time on their hands. Googling Rite aid deals would have given this person TONS of sites! I've been too busy spending WAY too much money instead of tracking down deals! :)!

    Yes, some of these storms are getting pretty bad! I'm not a fan of thunder and lightening!

  5. If someone was TRULY a couponer, they would know you are NOT a "deals" site!! They must be looking to be "spoonfed" deals, which there are plenty of deal bloggers out there who HAPPILY post deal scenarios out the wazoo! Do not let this apparently lost blog reader get to you. Tell them move on and keep looking... they've obviously landed on the wrong blog!!

    We all LOVE all your postings-- RA brags and all!! Keep up the great blogging!!

  6. Thanks for the link love!!! So I'm going to tell you what is going on here. We are eating bacon all the time so we will run out when the prices shoot up! I can't control myself when it comes to bacon.
    "Lucky, Lucky YOU!"-I laughed!
    And I think that you owe no one anything, especially posting all of the deals that you do. I like you just the way that you are!

  7. Luckily, I have been listening to horrendous thunder that is just a few miles away and gives me no rain. This plateau I live on diverts so many storms.

    I like your bragging posts! I am inspired and mostly amazed.

    I bragged about losing 5 lbs in a week on my weight loss blog. I even posted my really horrendous weight. I really don't care what people think. You know there is someone to complain about anything any of us do.

    This last few days, I have used coupons about to expire, getting real butter for a good price that I don't want to figure out. I got four cans of pineapple, the little ones with pop-top for $0.38 each, but that cannot compare to bacon. My free toothpaste has not been happening, but getting it for $0.50 is not bad either.

    Now, I want a pineapple sandwich!

  8. Oh my goodness - the nerve of you not posting how to get the deals! There are too many deal blogs out there to count - a few even specifically just for Rite Aid. I just feel like a total looser when it comes to finding deals when I read your big bragging - but I still love ya! LOL

  9. Give me a break. Some people just have to bitch about something. Keep up the great bragging deals at rite-aid! :P

  10. Look at it this way, they are not mad at your bragging...they are mad because you did not give the information in a timely manner, so they could out do your deals.

    Some people!!!!
    blessings, jill
    ps. did you see the yahoo post about the one percenters hoarding 56% of their income? Me thinks we all should try our best at saving if 'they' are worried about the future;)

  11. People are just jealous, they can't of won't figure out how to do what you do, so they complain. Ignore the sorry a## fools.

  12. Brag away! I enjoy YOUR blog! That's right. It's YOUR blog and you have the right to post whatever you want. I get these comments which I donn't publish. Some people just don't want to do any work.

  13. LOL! Let me just say you're awesome and your bragging inspires me as well as lights a fire under my butt to get out there and actually use these dang coupons I accumulate but rarely remember to use...
    It's YOUR blog! Do what you want!


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.
