A Little Rite-Aid This Week

Up to Rite-Aid for a few items this week.

On Daughter's card...........

2 x large bags M&M's caramel on sale=$5.00 **
2 x Gatorade BOGOFree=$2.49
2 x Blue Diamond Almonds BOGOFree=$5.29
2 x 2 pack Lever soap BOGO50%=$4.48 ***
1 x Hydralyte on sale=$1.00 *
1 x Colgate toothpaste on sale=$3.99 ****

Coupons Used
1 x $1/1 PeelieQ on one of the M&M bags=$1.00
1 x $1.50/2 Blue Diamond cans ManuQ=$1.50
1 x $2/1 Hydralyte IPQ=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Colgate In-AdQ=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Colgate ManuQ=$2.00
Coupon Total.....$8.50

$22.25-$8.50=$13.75 + .42¢ tax=$14.17

$14.17 in BC was used to pay and $10 in new BC was earned($5 wyb2 Select bath items-Lever, $1 Colgate, $4 wyb $12 food items).

I also submitted for $2 in Ibotta cash rebates(2 x $1 M&M caramel flavor).

* The Hydralyte Q was $1 more than the sale price of the item so you need to have something else in your order to absorb that overage.
** The 6 food/drink items were part of a Spend $12/Get $4 BC Deal.  College Boy(got to find a new name for him now, don't I?lol)can always use Gatorades, he also loves M&M's and I can have the Almonds.  There was a surprise $1 off peelie on one of the bags and $2 from Ibotta cash back on this variety of M&Ms so not bad at $4.28 for all 6 after BC/cash back.
*** If you can find the 2 packs of Lever soap it's a small moneymaker this week.  At BOGO50%off the soap comes to $4.48 and gives back $5 in BC.
****The Colgate was a 1¢ moneymaker after stacking the $2/1 In-AdQ and the $2/1 ManuQ in the sunday insert a couple of weeks ago.

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

2 x Liquid IV hydration packets(rain check)=FREE(They were out of this item on a Deal last year and I got a rain check.)
1 x Hydralyte on sale=$1.00 *
1 x Doan's pain cream on sale=$9.00 **
1 x Remfresh(rain check)=$5.00
2 x Lever soap on sale BOGOFree=$4.48 ***

Coupons Used
1 x $2/1 Hydralyte IPQ=$2.00
1 x $4/1 Doan's cream IPQ=$4.00
1 x $5/1 Remfresh IPQ=$5.00
Coupon Total.....$11.00

$19.48-$11.00=$8.48 + .18¢ tax=$8.66

I used $8.66 in BC and earned back $13.00 in new BC.

* Again I made sure to have something else besides the Hydralyte in the order to absorb the Q's overage.
** The Doan's is part of a monthly Deal of Doan's/Vivarin/Midnite.  The $4/1 Q brought that price down to $5 and it gave back $8 in BC.  There is a limit of 1 per card/account on this Deal so be careful and don't try to do it twice on the same card.
*** Again, the 2 packs of Lever are a .52¢ moneymaker after BC earned for buying it.

The electrolyte drinks/tablets/packets are something that's always good to have on hand in the Summer months(or for re-hydration after certain diarrhea inducing illnesses run through your family).  College Boy will be working a warehouse job this Summer and might need this stuff so if the store is giving it to me for free(or better)I am buying it.  ;-)

Here's the summaryof how I did.....

Total spent in BC.....$22.83
Total earned in BC....$23.00
Total cash rebates earned...$2.00
I was able to roll some BC and actually make money on this trip.

Go me. lolz



  1. Those caramel M&Ms are bad. I got a box for DS at Dollar Tree yesterday and ended up eating half of it
    Thanks for the Lever heads up. I'll head to my store later.

    1. Bad, bad candy! I won't even have them in the same room with me....lolz

  2. Great the first thing I see this morning is chocolate, why don't you just put a big sweet bun on your blog. I am not talking about your husband.
