Rolling/Spending the +Up Rewards This Week....Part 1

Lots of +Ups to spend/roll at Rite-Aid this week.
Let me apologize in advance for all the Rite-Aid posts I need to subject everyone to in the coming days.

Here is what I did today, Sunday--

First on my Wellness card........

4 x Gear Deodorant on sale $3=$12.00
2 x Nexxus 'Poo 20% wellness disc=$10.06
2 x Simplify bottled water on sale but 20% disc. less=$5.48 *Not pictured*
2 x GE light bulbs on sale=$7.98
2 x Dove 20% wellness discount?=$7.58(1 rang up $3.99, 1 rang up $3.59 **I bought the wrong kind**

Coupons Used
4 x $2/1 Gear Deodorant IPQ=$8.00
2 x $3/1 Nexxus item VideoValuesQ(Dec.)=$6.00
1 x $2/1 GE light bulb VideoValuesQ(Dec.)=$2.00
1 x $1/1 GE light bulb ManuQ=$1.00
1 x $2.50/1 GE light bulb IPQ(NLA)=$2.50
2 x $1/1 Dove hair item VideoValuesQ(Dec.)=$2.00
Coupon Total......$21.50


I used $21 in +Up Rewards and paid .35¢ on a free R-A gift card I used up, and .35¢ OOP.
I received back $12 in new +Up Rewards(2 x $2 wyb2 Gear, 2 x $1 Simplify water, 2 x $3 GE bulbs).

I screwed up the Dove Deal (Buy 2/Get $2 +Ups)and didn't get that $2 +Ups I was expecting but I didn't notice it until I got home.  Evidently the Dove 'Poo with the bonus mini bottle on it didn't count toward the Deal so I'll have to go back and return/rebuy the correct types.
So instead of earning $14 in +Ups I got $12.

Ya see?
Even folks who have their proverbial Rite-Aid shit together screw things up sometimes.
Can I blame the cashier?  He likes to chat and distract me.
Yeah, that's it! lolz

Then I bought this stuff on my son's card.......

2 x GE light bulbs on sale=$7.98
1 x Simplify water case=$2.79

I used--
1 x $1/1 GE light bulbs IPQ=$1.00
1 x $2.50/1 GE light bulbs IPQ(NLA)=$2.50
1 x $2/1 GE light bulbs VideoValuesQ(Dec.)=$2.00
Coupon Total.....$5.50


I used a $5 +Up Reward and paid .27¢ OOP.

I received back $7 in new +Up Rewards(2 x $3 GE, $1 Simplify water).

Once I got return the Dove 'Poo(giving me $7.58), rebuy the correct varieties(spending $7 of that $7.58), I'll get a $2 +Ups and have .58¢ gain Cash having converted that amount from the +Ups that I spent the first time buying the 'Poo.  I'll apply that .58¢ to my OOP for the month at Rite-Aid.

I have $10.06 tracking toward a $10 Nexxus +Ups(just have to spend $9.94 more, which means free hair product).  Unfortunately I don't have any more Nexxus coupons to make buying that $9.94 a partial moneymaker too.

I also have $18.03 earned on my card toward this "Buy & Earn" thing Rite-Aid just started and $7.98 on son's card.

So once I rebuy the Dove I'll have used $26 +Ups and earned $21 +Ups on these 2 transactions.
I'll have paid .62¢ OOP(or rather .04¢ OOP after applying the .58¢ gain on the return) and have $84.95 in products.

I have $1 in +Ups to use Monday and $15 to use on Tuesday so I'll stop back in after getting blood work done on Monday and roll/spend those $16 +Ups.
Then I am good until Thursday when another $4 in +Ups is expiring.

My brain is aching from thinking up what to buy/how to use these +Ups up! ;-)




  1. All for getting benefits, but you're abusing by using multiple people's cards. I'm sure you'll have a reason why that's ok for you, but it's really not!

    1. Well I guess I DO have a reason why this is OK Anonymous.
      Per Rite-Aid's rules there is 1 card per person and 4 cards per household limit. So actually I could get my husband a card and use it for him too since I only use 3 cards for 3 different people.
      I use 3 cards and I supply products for the 3 people. I have the time, take the effort to shop so why shouldn't my family let me use their cards to get them stuff? R-A doesn't mind so why should you?

      Here's a thought--stop trolling the internet and dragging down other people and spend your time uplifting people. This is why I share my help others work the game.
