A Rite-Aid Haul or 2 Pre-Black Friday

I was out for blood work Monday morning so I hit Rite-Aid down the street for some freebies.....

2 x Colgate toothpaste on sale $3 each=$6.00

I used-
1 x $1/2 Colgate toothpaste ManuQ=$1.00
2 x $2.50/1 Colgate select items Rite-Aid FlyerQ=$5.00
Coupon Total...$6.00

So Zero OOP.
No Plenti points used or earned.

Then I bought all this......

2 x Colgate Toothbrushes on sale $3 each=$6.00
1 x Crest Toothpaste on sale=$3.00
5 x Schwarzkopf Shampoos and Conditioners on clearanced 75% off $1.99 each=9.95

Coupons Used
1 x $1/2 Colgate Toothbrushes ManuQ=$1.00
2 x $2.50/1 Colgate select items Rite-Aid FlyerQ=$5.00
1 x $2/1 Crest Toothpaste ManuQ=$2.00
2 x $5/2 Schwarzkopf Ultime items IPQ=$10.00
Coupon Total.....$18.00

$18.95-$18=.95¢ + .12¢ tax=$1.07 OOP
I couldn't use Plenti Points to pay since the total was under $2 so I used my Rite-Aid gift card so still nothing out of pocket.

I was suppose to earn $1 in new Plenti Points for buying the Crest toothpaste......

But it said I earned $2.50 in points.

For some reason I earned $1.50 in PPs for buying one of the Colgate toothbrushes too.
A quick check on my Plenti account when I got home and I had activated a $1.50 in PPs household offer on there when I buy a Colgate toothbrush that I had forgotten about.

Look out for Ultime Schwarzkopf hair products 75% off at your Rite-Aid.
If you find some, go print the Schwarzkopf coupon on RedPlum dotcom(two prints available per computer)or if you were lucky enough to get this Q in your Sunday inserts use that.
You will have to buy 3 bottles at 75% off or have something else that cost at least $1.02 in your transaction to absorb the overage of the $5 off Q(if your store let's you have overage or doesn't adjust coupons down).  Buying 3 and using the $5/2 Q means you'll owe .95¢ + tax (if your state charges for hair items).

There are also 2 rebates on Schwarzkopf on Saving Star-1 for $2/1 and 1 for $5/2.  Since I activated those rebates and bought 5 I got $7 in cash rebates back for buying these.

Since I had to go back for an Rx on Tuesday I printed some more Qs and got some more freebies.....well almost freebies since I owed .25¢ on this lot(which I put on my R-A gift card)......

4 x Schwarzkopf items on clearance=$7.96
2 x Colgate toothpaste on sale=$6.00
2 x Colgate toothbrushes on sale=$6.00
3 x Dentex Flossers on sale B1G2F=$3.29

Coupons Used
2 x $5/2 Schwarzkopf IPQ=$10.00
2 x $.75/1 Colgate toothbrushes IPQ=$1.50
2 x $.75/1 Colgate toothpaste IPQ=$1.50
4 x $2.50/1 Colgate toothpaste or toothbrush R-A FlyerQ=$10.00
Ccoupon Total.....$23.00

$23.25-$23.00=.25¢ OOP put on gift card.
I earned $0 Plenti Points in this transaction.

The "overage" on the Schwarzkopf Qs($2.04) and the Colgate Qs($1) gave me $3.04 to apply toward the dental Flossers($3.29)so I have .25¢ owed on this transaction and got 3 packages of that on sale for .25¢.  8-)

Grand Total-
$0 OOP($1.32 put on gift card)
$2.50 new Plenti Points earned
$7 in cash rebates earned
An $8.18 moneymaker in all.



  1. Your money machinations are nothing short of amazing.

  2. I was just sick to my stomach and now I am dizzy. I just might go get some of that shampoo.

  3. A.mazing... Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Can you do it ONLY with what's in your food stash??

  4. Smart shopping, Denise.👍
    Happy Thamksgiving. I need to get up and start cooking but I'm procrastinating a bit 😄
