Rite-Aid This Week

When I went out on Sunday to get Hubs his SB pizza and dip making supplies I also stopped in at Rite-Aid for the Deals.

Between what I printed online last week and what came in the 3 copies of the newspaper on Sunday I had 11 coupons for $1/1 Arm & Hammer Detergent.
Weis in last week's ad had this item for $1.87 per jug/pack, making them .87¢ each after Q.
I used 5 of my Qs there last week but used the 6 Qs from the inserts at Rite-Aid.  The RA price was $1.99(.13¢ more than the Weis price after Q)BUT this item also qualified toward the BPE so it was a cheap way to get my spending total up to $100 and that first $20 Plenti points Reward, in a week with very few Deals for cheap/free that included items counting toward the BPE.

There were Qs on coupons dotcom(NLA)for $2/1 Gear deodorants.  The R-A ad has a $2 off Gear deodorant coupon this week and this item is on sale for $3.49, which means by stacking these 2 Qs you can get that item for free PLUS get "overage" of .51¢ toward other items you purchase in the same transaction.  Don't try to buy the Gear Deo without something else to absorb the overage.

On son's card........

3 x Pantene Poo on sale $4=$11.97(Wellness discount was $3.99 ea.)
1 x Tide Pods detergent on sale=$4.99
2 x Cover Girl eye shadow BOGO=$5.08
2 x Gear Deo on sale=$6.98
2 x A&H detergent on sale=$3.98

Coupons Used
1 x $5/3 Pantene ManuQ=$5.00
1 x $3/1 Tide pods ManuQ=$3.00(expired on 2/7)
1 x $2/2 Cover Girl items ManuQ=$2.00
2 x $2/1 Gear Deo IPQ=$4.00
2 x $2/1 Gear Deo In-AdQ=$4.00
2 x $1/1 A&H detergent ManuQ=$2.00
Coupon Total........$20.00

$33.00-$20=$13.00+.79¢ tax=$13.79 Total
I used Plenti points and earned $7 back in new Plenti points(for spending $15 in P&G products-Tide/Pantene/Cover Girl).

The detergents and make-up tracked toward my BPE total giving me $80.92 toward the $20 Reward.

Then I bought this stuff in 2 transactions(photo-ed together as it is easier).......

I then regrouped and bought 1 Arm & Hammer plus 2 more Gear Deos on son's card.
Total OOP was $2.09 which I put on a free R-A gift card(as my total was too low to use Plenti points).
This card now has tracking of $82.91 toward the BPE.

I bought the other 5 A&H detergents on my card, spending down $5.25 of my Plenti points.  I now have $75.11 tracking toward the BPE on this other card.

Nothing spent OOP for these trips and $107.62 worth of items brought home.

I may or may not be done for the week at Rite-Aid as I am still contemplating what I can buy for free/cheap next week that we can use that will get me to the $20 reward on each card before this program ends later this month.



  1. Great job at rite aid. I only have 1 coupon for
    the arm and hammer. Do you remember were you printed the online Qs. My rite aid did not have coupon inserts for the arm and hammer.
    Thank you

    1. Patti,
      The liquid detergent and the "pod packs" of detergent Qs were on coupons dotcom. I believe the pod Q tho was removed as the allotted amount of Qs for it were already of yesterday the lighid detergent Q was still there tho.
