Went out last night to use the last of my $8 in +Ups expiring on Saturday.
I bought this on my card.....
2 x Dove Men's Body Wash (raincheck price of $2.50)=$5.00
1 x Axe Gift Set(w/Wellness 20% diacount)=$9.59
1 x $2/1 Load2Card Dove Men's Body Wash=$2.00
2 x $2/1 Dove Men's Body Wash IPQ=$4.00
2 x $1/1 Any Dove Body Wash VV/AdPerks IPQ=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Axe Gift Set VV/AdPerks IPQ=$2.00
2 x $1/1 Axe single items VV/AdPerks IPQ=$2.00
I used $2 in +Ups and put the .87¢ on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received back $3+Ups(Axe gift set), so all this was FREE and gave me $1 back in +Ups.
Then I got called home for a car emergency. Had to go jump Hubs car and he needed to take my car to run an errand, so my shopping Friday night was done.
I now have 2 nice Christmas presents for my son's that didn't cost me a dime.....thanks Rite-Aid! 8-))
On Saturday I hit Rite-Aid again because I still had $6 in +Ups expiring.
I wanted to get Ziploc bags this week but my store was out, so I had to change it up.
Here are my gets on the BIL's card......
3 x R-A napkins on sale $2.50(3rd pack suppose to be $2.69 but rang up $2.50)=$7.50
2 x Tums Refreshers on sale $4.50=$9.00(1 is missing from the picture)
2 x ID Gum on sale $1.00=$2.00
1 x BOGO ID Gum(Target site ManuQ)=$1.49 *
1 x .25¢/1 ID Gum VV/AdPerks IPQ=$.25
2 x $1/1 Tums Refreshers Tearpad Q(on shelf)=$2.00
2 x $1.50/1 Tums Refershers VV AdPerks IPQ=$3.00
AND HERE IS WHERE IT GETS CRAZY.....
1 x $1/1 Tums Refershers Load2Card Q=$1.00
1 x $2.50/1 Tagament Load2Card Q=$2.50 **
1 x $1/1 Debrox EarWash Load2Card Q=$1.00 **
I used my $6 in expiring +Ups and a $1 +Ups from the ID Gum I bought earlier in the week to pay and put the .47¢ on my R-A gift card.
I received back $7 in +Up Rewards($3 wyb $7 in paper goods, $1 wyb2 ID gum, $$2 wyb2 Tums, $1 wyb2 R-A tissues/napkins), so I am "even" on the +Ups count n this transaction.
* First off, the cashier took the full reg. price off on the Gum and not the sale price. The coupons had a limit of $1.29 so I need to go back next time and give them some change back.
** Now why did Tagament and Ear Wash Qs on the Load2Card come off for this transaction? From what I've heard, all 3 of these products are made by Glaxo Smith Kline and that is what triggered them to attach to my Tums. It would also explain by the single item $1 Axe Qs are attaching to your transaction if you only buy the Gift Set.....same brand name owns both gift sets and single items. Now I can see this since they are BOTH Axe products, but it's truly crazy that those GSK owned different brands came off on my Tums. But I am NOT complaining! lol My 2 Tums cost $9 and I got $9.50 in Qs off of the cost between my $5 in VV/AdPerk and Tearpad Qs and $4.50 in Load2Card Qs.
I was NOT expecting that extra $1 +Ups for buying the napkins. The ad stated "Spend $7 in Rite-Aid paper products, Get $3 +Ups". I spent $7.50 on 3 packs of napkins and got the $3 and an additional $1 +Ups that was specific to the napkins. And I got tracking on my receipt "Buy 2 RA Tissues/Napkins, Get $1+Up(Limit 2)". I would suppose this is some kind of Monthly Deal for the Tissues/Napkins.
After both +Up Rewards on the napkins they ended up "costing" $1.17 a package(if you had to spend cash and don't have +Ups to spend). That's not a bad price for 250 ct.!
My +Ups are good to go for another 2 weeks if next week's ad has nothing I want/need. I can concentrate on Turkey stuff this week instead. ;-)
