More Rite-Aid

Well I lied.
I went back to Rite-Aid to spend those Spin Brush Qs.

I found a work around the $5.99 get $3 +Ups but now it's BOGO Free for the rest of the week.
If you buy one Spin Brush, I figured it defaults to the $5.99 sale price.
But I was wrong.
But them I figured out that if you buy the higher priced Spin Brush at $11.29(at my store)and not the $9.99 Spin Brush it still triggers the $10 wyb $10 Up Reward Deal AND you get the 2 x $3 +Ups for buying 2 brushes and you don't have to buy toothpaste too to get the $3 wyb $10 +Ups.
Yah, I am slow sometimes...... 8-(

2 Transactions but I took 1 photo of everything together(except for the sodas which I don't feel like hauling in from the garage).

2 x SpinBrush BOGO=$11.29
4 x Gerber Baby Foods(used Rain check which made them free)=$0.00

Coupons Used
1 x $2/1 SpinBrush IPQ=$2.00

I used $9 in +Up Rewards and paid .29¢ OOP.

I earned $15 in +Ups(2 x $3 SpinBrush, $3 wyb $10 Arm&Hammer, 2 x $3 Gerber wyb2).

Even though the Gerber baby foods were free with my Rain Check(from earlier this year)I still got the 2 x $3 +Ups. 8-)))

Then I attempted to use the 2nd $3 off $30 Catalina Q the Cat machine spit out during Sunday's transaction.  I had to use the Wellness card that I already bought Vaseline, Gerber and SpinBrushes on so I had to find other things I needed that would give me a small OOP and/or more +Ups.

2 x Ziploc bags on sale=$6.00
2 x Axe Deodorant on sale=$9.00
4 x 7-Up soda on sale=$5.00 *not pictured*
3 x Coke 12-packs on sale=$9.99  *not pictured*
2 x Choc. covered Cherries BOGO=$1.99

Coupons Used
1 x $3/$30 purchase CatalinaQ=$3.00
1 x $1/2 Ziploc IPQ=$1.00
2 x $1/1 Axe Deodorant VideoValuesQ=$2.00
1 x $3/2 Axe Deodorant Load2CardQ=$3.00
1 x $1/3 7-Up 2 liters IPQ=$1.00
1 x FREE Coke 12-packQ(my coke rewards)=$3.33
1 x $3/1 Coke 12-packQ(my coke rewards)=$3.00
Coupon Total....$16.33

I used $15.59 in +Ups and paid .06¢ OOP.

I earned $5 in new +Ups($2 7-Up, $3 wyb2 Axe).

Actually I spent $2 more in +Ups on this transaction because the cashier forgot two of my Q totaling $2 so he did a post-transaction coupon thingy and I got $2 in cash back.

$24.59 in +Ups used and $20 in new +Ups earned....or rather $26.59 in +Ups used and $20 in new +Ups plus $2 Cash.


I also bought a couple of gift cards(for Xmas presents so comes out of a different budget than food/toiletries)and got $12 more in +Up Rewards for those to use on more free toiletries...woohoo!

$41 +Ups going forward and $2 Cash.
Plus the Ziploc bags count toward a $5 rebate I am working on. 2 more boxes of Ziplocs and I am there.

I'll use that $5 off $5 KMart Coupon I received earlier this week to buy 2 boxes of Ziploc containers for $6, pay $1 OOP and get that $1 I paid out back from a Savingstar Q for $1 of 2 Ziploc containers I activated, then I'll get the $5 rebate on Savingstar sor spending $22+ on Ziplocs too.  8-)))

I spent .35¢ OOP and brought home $77.51 worth of goods from Rite-Aid this trip.

Now I am TRULY done at Rite-Aid until Sunday...... ;-)



  1. You just couldn't help yourself, could you? shameless.....

  2. Hi Sluggy!

    Well, you can file my comment into the "well, that was random!" section. :)

    I'm a lurker, no blog of my own, but I enjoying reading others. I don't recall if I found your blog first or "udy with a J"'s blog, but I recall that you both seemed to have made a connection with each other through blogging. It's been a while since she stopped blogging, but I was hoping that either 1. she may read your blog and comments, or 2. you can pass along my comment .....

    but I just wanted to let her know that there is a stranger out in cyberspace that was inspired and motivated by her cooking skills and marathon cooking sessions and started to implement them in her own life. Everytime I pull out my slowcooker, see the clay baking thingamajigs in the thrift stores, peruse grocery flyers for sales ... I think of her, and with appreciation.

    Any time of year would be good to hear my comment but even moreso at Christmas, I hope that "udy with a J" knows that she has inspired strangers in cyberspace (not to mention those that she helped during her volunteer church cooking sessions), and that I wish her and her family well!

    (Sorry to hijack for blog for this comment, but you seem like a nice person who wouldn't mind me doing so).

  3. P.S. I hope that didn't sound like pressure for Judy to start blogging again, I remember she had her hands full!! Just wanted to show her my appreciation and admiration for the previous knowledge and inspiration, and wanted to send good wishes!
