More Load2Card Madness at Rite-Aid

Ok, maybe not madness, but something ain't right with it!

I went up to my favorite drugstore today........go on! Guess the name of it!......and bought this stuff on the BIL's card....

2 x Tresemme 'Poo on sale=$8.00
4 x Mentos on sale=$2.00 **Cinnamon finally!  These go in my candy stash.lol

I tried to use a $2/1 Tresemme Load2Card Q attached to this Wellness card and a paper ManuQ for $2/1 Tresemme from Sunday's inserts.
And my total would be $6 and I would have paid with $6 in +Ups from the $20 I accumulated last week.
Easy Peasy, right?

But the cashier told me my total was $6 before I even gave her the paper ManuQ!
She printed the receipt out and there were 2 x $2/1 Tresemme Load2Card Qs taken off my transaction already!  And I KNOW I only had 1 of these Qs attached to my Wellness card.

2 of the same Load2Card Q?

We both shrugged our shoulders, I tucked my ManuQ back into my coupon pouch and gave the cashier $6 in +Up Rewards and my OOP was .00¢.

Besides my Zero balance you can see 2 x $2 Load2Cards came off on this shot of my receipt.
Very Weird.

I received back $4 in +Up Rewards($1 wyb4 Mentos, $3 wyb2 Tresemme)so I only spent down $2 on my +Up Rewards stash.

Then I went back to the pharmacy and picked up a prescription I had transferred from Walmart earlier that day.
Handed cashier my Wellness card and the Coupon in the sales flyer to give me a $25 +Up Reward with an rx transfer.  Then I swiped my HSA card and paid for the rx and I got this too.....

I see $25(or more)worth of free toiletries/etc. in my immediate future.  8-)
I had to fill this prescription and with Walmart and Rite-Aid being the same price for this rx, why not transfer it and get free stuff, right?

I may go back tomorrow and transfer another rx using the BIL's card and get another $25 +Up Reward.   There is a limit of 1 transfer/$25 per card account.  BIL doesn't get rxs at Rite-Aid so why not use it?

Now I have to figure out how I want to spend this.
I have to come up with lots of different items to purchase in one transaction, using Qs and sale prices and items that generate more +Ups this week.
It's going to take some thinking and scheming on this tonight.

I could do this deal......get another $25 +Up for rx transfer, then on Thursday find a Rite-Aid that carries the portable DVD player that's on sale this week for $49.99, buy that and a Cela cherry so my total is over $50.  Pay with the 2 x $25 +Ups(and cash for any tax on the purchase)and get back $15 in +Ups-a double dip of two promotions on this item....a $5 +Up weekly deal and a $10 +Up monthly deal, both on this product.
This would give me a free DVD player and $15 in free stuff for those 2 rx transfers.  Too bad I don't need a portable dvd player though.

More tomorrow......



  1. Hmmm, maybe I need to transfer a prescription to Rite Aid. And, I could encourage exbf to get a RA card. Firt, I have to figure out how to load a card.

  2. Sluggy, you do so well at this. You rock!
