Saturday Evening Rite-Aid

Just some more boring cheap stuff and bonus +Ups for my stash.  Nothing to see here, just move along.....

2 x Ricola on sale=$3.00
2 x Reach Toothbrushes on sale=$5.00
1 x Compleats on sale=$1.99
1 x Cella cherry w/Gold discount=$.26

Coupons Used
1 x $2/2 Reach toothbrushes IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$2.00
1 x $1/1 Compleats IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Compleats Load2Card Q=$1.00
Coupon Total.....$4.00

I used $6 in +Ups(expiring on Tuesday)and put the .25¢ on my gift card.
I received back $4 in +Up Rewards(3 x $1 Ricola, $1 wyb2 Reach toothbrushes).
I will also receive a $1 cash Rebate on the Reach toothbrushes from Saving Star.

So, in the end, I am "down" $2 in +Ups, but "up" $1 in cash, meaning these goodies cost me $1.

I also bought 2 more $50 Home Improvement Discover Cards(using money earmarked for home repairs), which gave me a bonus $20 in +Ups to add to my Rite-Aid +Ups stash, to spend on toiletires/food/beauty items.

I've got quite a pile of +Ups built up from these card buys so I need to sit down and figure out how to spend them before they expire.  I have too many now to just roll them from weekly toothpaste, cold meds, paper towel deals. 
The ones expiring after Christmas, I might use to pick up clearance goods ahead for next Christmas.
I have some expiring on 12/25 so I have to remember to spend them by the 24th, since even Rite-Aid won't be open on Christmas day. ;-)
