Adjusting the Rite-Aid Plan.....Part 2

Just to refresh, I need to reach $34.65 in participating Bonus Cash items to get the second $20 BC on my card.

So I went to Rite-Aid and grabbed the last 4 packages of Scott xtra soft tp(they were out of all the other items that were part of the BC and the Kimberly-Clark Catalina deal--reg. Scott, the towels, the Cottonelle and the Kleenex)............

4 x Scott tp on sale=$27.96
1 x Irish Spring body wash on sale=$3.99
1 x Softsoap body wash on sale=$3.99

Coupons Used
4 x .55¢/1 Scott xtra soft tp packs IPQ=$2.20
1 x $1/1 Irish Spring body wash IPQ=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Softsoap body wash ManuQ=$1.00
2 x $2/1 In-AdQ Irish Spring or Softsoap item=$4.00
Coupon Total.....$8.20

$35.94 +.22¢tax=$36.16-$8.20=$27.96-$20 Bonus Cash already earned=$7.96 OOP using PPs.

But......I had a new cashier who doesn't know what to do evidently. lolz
She scanned my items, my loyalty card and then the $20 in BC attached to my card came off automatically and she didn't even try to put my coupons through!

So $36.16-$20 Bonus Cash=$16.16 OOP using PPs.

She totaled my transaction out and did a "post coupon" and handed me $8.20 cash(the value of my Qs).

Whatever god is smiling down on me when I go to Rite-Aid needs to continue because that's the second time this week I've gone to Rite-Aid and came away with cash in my pocket....$12.61 on Monday and $8.20 on Wednesday, which means I've cashed out PPs to the tune of $20.81 this week.

I'd hazard a guess that cash in my pocket that I can spent anywhere is better than Plenti Points I can only spend at Rite-Aid/Macy's/Exxon(of those 3, I only go to Rite-Aid).

But I digress......
I also earned the second $20 Bonus Cash on this card for the week and a third $5 Catalina for buying the tp.

Going forward I only have 1 $20 BC on this card now and $15 in Catalinas that I can use on any transaction in the next two weeks on any of our Wellness cards.

So now I need to decide if I want to do the Spend $50 on participating items/Get $20 Bonus Cash Deal on one of our other cards.

Maybe once on 1 card--
I'll buy 4 of the participating paper products again, use a $20 BC and get a 4th $5 Catalina.  Then I can buy another $22.04 in other participating items, use all 4 of the $5 Catalinas to pay(putting a couple of dollars over the $20 in Cats I have on PPs)and earn another $20 BC on that card.

Come back on Friday or Saturday to see what happens......same Bat Channel, same Bat Station...... ;-)



  1. Laughing at the same Bat time because I understand it completely. Great deals as usual p;us cash!

    1. I laughed at that as well. Gosh.. We really did date ourselves!

  2. You are the master of Bat Cliffhangers!

  3. I made mom buy 5 packages of pads and used a 2.00 coupon off each so earned the 20.00 plus another 10.00 off. I keep the difference.

  4. My brain hurts. I think I better keep my day job.
