Rite-Aid Porn....30% off Sale

I went up to R-A yesterday to refill some meds and see what damage I could do during the Friends & Family 30% off Sale.
I had a Get $6 OFF wyspend $30 Q too.

Here's what I got......

2 x R-A nutritional drinks BOGO50%(1 was more expensive than the other one as it wss high protein type)=$12.23
1 x Hello toothpaste on sale=$5.00
5 x Colgate toothpaste on sale but 30% lower($3)=$15.00
2 x PayDay candy bars on sale=$1.00

Coupons Used
$6 off wys $30 mailedQ=$6.00
1 x $1/1 Hello IPQ=$1.00
4 x $1/1 Colgate optic white IPQ=$4.00
1 x .50¢/1 Colgate manuQ=.50¢
5 x $3/1 RA In-AdQ=$15.00
Coupon Total...$26.50

$33.23-$26.50=$6.73 + tax except........
I forgot 3 of my $1 off Qs a home AND I bought 1 toothpaste that wasn't on sale for $3.50 and $3 after the 30% discount.
I paid with Bonus Cash and earned back $5 in BC(Hello toothpaste)so this spent down $5.92 of my BC.
I did do a "post Q" Saturday morning for the $3 in Qs I forgot.......

I'll probably go back this week and return the $4.19 Colgate toothpaste which will give me back $4.19 in BC which means this all will have "cost" $1.73 in BC and I got $3 cash for those Qs so I am down a bit in BC but up a bit more in cash.
Got it?  ;-)

Then I when back today to get my meds and bought all this(still 30% Sale going on plus I had a Save $10 wyb $50 mailed Q on a different card........

4 x Dial body wash on sale($7/2)=$14.00
1 x Mitchum deodorant 30% discount=$3.84
1 x Purex detergent on sale=$1.99
1 x Right Guard 30% discount=$3.35
4 x Colgate toothpaste 30% discount=$12.00
3 x Nivea In-shower lotion 30% discount($5.94)=$17.82
Except I bought 1 toothpaste that was $3.49 instead of $3 with the 30% off. sigh.
So SubTotal was $53.49

Coupons Used
1 X $10 Off wyb $50 R-AQ=$10.00
2 x $1/2 Dial body wash IPQ=$2.00
4 x .50¢ R-A Dial peelie Qs=$2.00

$53.49-$40.00=$13.49 + $1.32 tax=$14.81
the register wouldn't take 4 of the Qs(the R-A Purex, both Dial body wash and the Right Guard)so we had to do another "post Q", this one for $4........

So it was $53.49-$36 in Qs=$17.49 + $1.32 tax=$18.81 paid for with Bonus Cash.
I earned back $10 in new BC($5 Dial, $5 Nivea)so after that and the $4 cash this transaction "cost" $4.81.
Again I'll return the "expensive" toothpaste I bought by mistake so that's $3.49 back in Bonus Cash so I am only down $1.32 in BC for this all.

I guess sitting in bed for three days dulled my Rite-Aid spidey senses.....lolz
I'll try to do better next time.



  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I truly appreciate your efforts and
    I am waiting for your next post thank you once again.

  2. I am now dizzy from all of that!! Glad you know what you're doing...LOL

  3. I understood you took something back and got cash.

  4. I only took advantage of the toothpaste offers this week, both the Colgate, and the Hello, one of each. I tucked the Hello toothpaste away for a Christmas gift for the DD who has become very conscious about using natural and cruelty free products. I am interested to see what she thinks of it the taste. The last time I got free Rite Aid toothpaste, it was the Arm and Hammer, and DH can't stand the taste. I told him it wasn't meant to be a snack, and the price was right.

  5. I'm glad you're upright again - great shopping trip.
