My 1 Trip to Rite-Aid This Week

Yes, you only have to suffer through 1 transaction at Rite-Aid this week......aren't you glad? ;-)

2 x Tresemme 'Poo on sale=$8.00
2 x Simple facial Cleaners on sale=$9.98

Coupons Used
2 x $2/1 Tresemme item IPQ(NLA)=$4.00*
2 x $2/1 Simple item ManuQ(9/28 insert-I think)=$4.00
Coupon Total.....$8.00


I used $9 in +Up Rewards and paid .98¢ OOP.
I received back $7 in +Up Rewards($3 wyv2 Tresemme, 2 x $2 Simple).

I am down to $8+Ups at this point.  I have $1 +Ups that has to be spent/rolled by Nov. 1st and the rest by Nov. 5th.

* It's important to get the most out of playing the drugstore game by knowing what the sales will be ahead of time AND to print coupons when available.
Take this $2/1 Tresemme Q that was available at coupons dotcom.  Some coupons, coupons for products that don't get offered much and any high value coupon($2 or more)go fast on sites.  There are a limited number of coupon prints offered and when they run out, that is it.  I knew this Tresemme Q would go fast, so as soon as I saw it I printed it(most Qs you are allowed to print it twice).  Unfortunately, I didn't hop on Hubs computer and print it again then and by the time I got back from vacation it was long gone.  If you waited until you got the ad for Rite-Aid this week it was too late to take advantage of that coupon for the sale.
I follow "I 'heart' Rite-Aid to see sales ads in advance.  They are also published at places like Slick Deals and some of the Couponing sites.  Just check around online.

I would have done even better if I still had the $5/2 Tresemme ManuQs but I used them already.
I would have only spent down $1 of +Ups in this transaction, using $8 in +Ups to pay and getting back $7 in +Ups.




  1. What methods can be used to order coupons? Only Paypal? Check by mail?--my choice.

    1. Not sure what you mean as I wasn't talking about buying coupons.
      There are sites only and eBay where you can purchase coupons. It depends on the terms these sellers set.
