$36.00-$22.50=$13.50 + .03¢tax=$13.53
I used $13 in +Up Rewards and paid .53¢ OOP.

I received back $13 in +Up Rewards(2 x $5 wyb $15 Dove/Unilever, $3 wyb $12 Lindt's).

Then I bought this stuff on the BIL's card........

2 x Clorox bleach on sale $2.50=$5.00

1 x $1/2 Clorox ManuQ=$1.00
Coupon Total.....$4.00

$15.00-$4.00=$11.00 + .63¢tax=$11.63

I used a $10 Prepaid M/C(gotten in a deal from Rite-Aid in August) and paid $1.63 OOP.
I received back a $5 +Up Reward for buying $15 of select Cleaning Supplies.

Going into Friday I had $19 in +Ups to roll/spend.
Things didn't go quite as planned.....what's new, right? lolz

I did the Dove/Unilever Deal on my son's card......

1 x Clear 'Poo on sale=$5.00
2 x Dove Deo on sale=$10.00
1 x Dove Body wash on sale=$5.50
1 x Dove 'Poo on sale=$3.00
2 x Tresemme 'Poo on sale=$8.00

Coupons Used
1 x $1.50/1 Clear ManuQ=$1.50
1 x $1/1 Clear Video ValuesQ(Oct.)=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Clear In-AdQ=$1.00
2 x $2/1 Dove Deo IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$4.00
2 x $2/1 Dove Deo Video ValueQ=$4.00
1 x $1.50/1 Dove body wash IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$1.50
1 x $2/1 Dove body wash Video ValuesQ=$2.00
1 x $5/2 Tresemms 'Poo ManuQ=$5.00
1 x $1/1 Dove 'Poo Video ValuesQ=$1.00
Coupon Total.......$21.00

$31-$21=$10.00 and I was going to pay with 2 x $5 +Up Rewards so Zero OOP.

But that old goblin LOAD2CARD kicked in, and somehow the register loaded a $1.50/1 Dove L2CQ onto my receipt, which the cashier couldn't remove so I could use the better $2/1 Dove paper Q.
And without letting me know, he just added the $2 Q so my total coupons came to $22.
This meant my after Q total was now $9.00 so I couldn't use both $5 +Ups to pay.
I had another $9 in +Ups to use on a second transaction, so I just gave him a $5, a $3 and a $1 +Ups instead.
My new total was still Zero after +Up Rewards used so still no OOP.

I received back $10 in +Up Rewards.

But now I didn't have the right amount of +Ups to use for transaction #2.
I had have to add another .50¢ to what I was buying in order to use my 2 $5 +Ups that were left.

So I got a brilliant idea while mulling over what to do while sitting in the car.

Here's what I did, on BIL's card.......I already had tracking of $1.98 on this card for buying 2 Dawn dish soaps earlier in the week.

2 x Tide detergent on sale=$11.88
2 x Dawn dish soap on sale-$1.98
1 x Palmolive(small size)Rain Check=$.97

Coupons Used
2 x $2/1 Tide detergent ManuQ(Sunday inserts)=$4.00
2 x .25¢/1 Dawn IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$.50
Coupon Total.......$4.50

I used my $10 in +Ups and paid .33¢ OOP.

And I received back $5 in new +Up Rewards(wyb $15 Tide/Dawn/Bounty).

Total Spent OOP this week.....$5.89
Total value of items brought home.....$393.96

We are good to go on 'Poo, Soap, Deo, Body Wash and the such until sometime in 2016 I think. lolz

I now have $15 in +Up Rewards going forward.
Slowly I've spent them down and I'll be out of them in the next week or so and the Rite-Aid posts will end.
Now stop that cheering!!

That is, until the Christmas Holiday Deals start up at Rite-Aid.  ;-)




  1. There are no RiteAids in my city, dare I say state? With all these coupon posts, I would love to see a pic of your stockpile! :)

  2. your savvy shopping skills are stunning.

  3. I am trying to learn from you! Can you explain where the different coupons you use come from? Video Value coupon? Do you have the abbreviations listed somewhere? I am ready to play this Rite Aid game :)

  4. Waah, how come you get Dove stuff so cheap. I need to start collecting coupons again. Their stuff is expensive, and I love their deo and shampoo, one of the few that don't leave my hair all weighty and greasy.

  5. This isn't as exciting but I got a $5 off $25 at CVS and I get to go play there today.
