More Rite-Aid Haul Porn...So Far this Week

Ok, so I did this on my son's card on Sunday........

$36.66 w/tax paid in Plenti points and earned $30 in new Plenti points and earned a $10 Catalina for buying the diapers.

Then did the same transaction on my card.......

$26.79 w/tax paid in Plenti points(used the Catalina to bring the total down another $10)and earned $30 in new Plenti points and earned another $10 Catalina for buying the diapers.

So on Tuesday I bought the same stuff on Daughter's card.......

4 x $8.99 diapers=$35.96
2 x $7.99 lightbulbs=$15.98

I only had 1 $3 Huggies Q and 3 $2 Huggies Qs for this transaction and no lightbulb Qs, so $9 in Qs + the $10 Catalina=$19 off=$32.94 + .96¢ tax=$33.90 paid in Plenti points and $30 in new Plenti points earned.

Plus my third $10 Catalina printed.

Then my plan hit a snag....

First off I had planned another $50 transaction on my card which included buying Herbal Essence shampoos but alas, these aren't Starting Points items.  8-(

Secondly, I was under the assumption that $25 bought in Kimberly-Clark items in a single transaction would generate a $5 Catalina for that purchase.  Evidently this Catalina deal is regional and not available here.  8-((

So this is what my second $50 Starting Points transaction turned into.....

First off I saw I had 3 activated offers in my card's Plenti account--
1-$2 in points for buying Purex detergent(which is on sale for $1.99 this week). Can do this offer 2 x.
2-$1.50 in points for buying Kleenex bundle packs. Can do this offer 2 x.
3-$1.50 in points for buying Chloraseptic, Can do this offer 2 x.

I also had $1.94 tracking from my first transaction on this card so only need to spend $48.06 to get to $50 spent in Starting Points items.

4 x Cottonelle TP 12 packs BOGOF=$24.58
2 x Kleenex bundle packs BOGOF=$5.79
2 x Purex detergent=$3.98
2 x Chloraseptic BOGOF=$5.29
2 x Visine drops 20% discount=$9.10

Coupons Used
2 x $1/1 Cottonelle ManuQ=$2.00
1 x .75¢ Kleenex bundle packs IPQ=.75¢
1 x $1.50 Kleenex bundle packs R-A mailedQ=$1.50(can be stacked with IPQ/ManuQ)
1 x $1/1 Chloraseptic IPQ=$1.00
2 x $1.50/1 Visine IPQ=$3.00
2 x $2/1 Visine RA in-adQ=$4.00
Coupon Total....$12.25

$48.74-$12.25=$36.49-$10 Catalina=$26.49 + .36¢ tax=$26.85
I paid with $26.85 in Plenti points and earned back $30 in new Plenti points($20 wyb $50 Starting Items, 2 x $2 Purex, 2 x $1.50 Kleenex, 2 x $1.50 Chloraseptic). Even though 1 of the Kleenex bundles and 1 of the Chloraseptic were free they still generated the Plenti points for their purchase.

Altogether I spend $124.40 in Plenti points for all 4 transactions and I earned $120.00 back in new Plenti points.  This means all the items bought "cost" me $4.20 including tax so I basically "spent down" $4.20 of my points.
If that Kimberly-Clark $5 Catalina had generated this whole shebang would have been a .80¢ moneymaker instead.

And I now have 12 packs of diapers that I can handily sell locally for $5 or $6 a piece so I've got potential for making $60-$72 cash off of those.

I am probably done with Rite-Aid this week unless something else turns up.
I don't have the Purex or Kleenex Offers on the other cards but I do have the Chloraseptic one on one card.
Be sure to check and activate any Plenti Offers on your Plenti account before going in to buy anything.

So tell me what goodies you got for free or cheap at Rite-Aid this week.



  1. You amaze me with your Rite-Aid prowess!

  2. I still have not been to Rite Aid to get a card so I can start doing the plenti point thing. As always I am amazed.

  3. Win for those buying the diapers too form you. I just about fell over at the price buying them for a baby shower. There is a future use for them if applicable. Well appreciated by the parents.

  4. Not this week, but on New Year's, Christmas things went on 75% off. I bought two Axe gift sets for $3 each, and used a coupon. I think I got 400 Plenti Points too on that transaction, too! (Can't remember accurately.) My sons hate Axe, but I passed them on to a friend whose boys still love the stuff. I also ztocked up on Kisses and M&M's for baking, which went straight to the freezer, and picked up some Planter's 3 packs. Those are a favorite here.. Going forward, there is nothing I need at Rite Aid, but I did get my $20.00 in points, and did quite well in that transaction. I am in the process of whittling away, not building up my store of hba's this year, so I may cut down on my Rite Aid hauls.

  5. So... does Rite Aid have a desk and calculator there at the store for you to figure all this out before each transaction??
