I printed off 3 $10/1 Norelco shaver IPQs at the end of November(before they changed the wording to only specific models).
There is a monthly +Ups Deal at Rite-Aid for December....Spend $30 on Norelco products, Get a $10 +Up Rewards. There is a limit of 2 Offers per Wellness account/card.
I bought this on Tuesday...
2 x Norelco Groomer/Razor Sets reg. $20.99 w/Gold discount $16.79=$33.58
I used 2 x $10/1 Norelco Razor IPQs=$20.00
I paid with $13 in +Up Rewards and put the $1.39 on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received back $10 +Up Reward for spending $30 on Norelco products.(With $3.58 in tracking toward my next $30 spent.)
Then I used two Rainchecks I got on Black Friday weekend and bought all this last night......

I paid with $24 in +Up Rewards and put the $.92 on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received back $10 +Up Reward for spending $30 on Norelco products.(The $29.99 spent this transaction added to the $3.58 tracking from my last transaction put me over $30 spent again, and triggered the Reward.)
* If you get a raincheck at Rite-Aid for an item that has an In-ad Q that week that makes it a good deal, be sure to cut that Q out of the sales ad and have the cashier staple it to your raincheck, so you get the sale price AND you get to use the Q you would have used IF they had had the item available the week of the sale. Many stores will also let you staple a ManuQ or IPQ that is valid when you get the raincheck but may expire before the rainchecked item comes in again to the store. Like on Sunday, I had a ManuQ for $1 off 2 Post cereals that was expiring that day! and the cereal was on sale 2 for $5. If the store had been out of Post cereal, I would have gotten a raincheck for the cereal AND had them staple the then valid ManuQ to the raincheck so that when they got more cereal the following week and went to use my raincheck, they know I had the ManuQ ready to use during the dates it was valid, so they would accept it.
When in doubt, staple that Q to the raincheck! If you find a better deal elsewhere before the Q expires, you can always remove it from the raincheck and use it somewhere else too.
$92.97 in Razors and $20.93 in other goodies, I am out $2.31 on my gift card and I am "down" $17 in +Ups or out $19.31 total.
Take out the cost of non-razor goodies and divide my total spent(with tax comes to $15.30) and each razor cost me $5.10.
$5.10 each for 3 nice Christmas gifts for the men in my life.
And I've used/rolled ALL my +Up Rewards that are expiring before Dec. 26th.
