More Rite-Aid Pillaging This Week-For Sonya Ann 8-)

Lots of good deals(see free or almost free stuff)at Rite-Aid this Week.

Let's recap where we are at first.....

From Sunday--
On my card.......
 After cash rebates and spending Bonus Cash this transaction is "up" $4.40.

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

After cash rebates and spending Bonus Cash this transaction is "up" $5.42.

On Monday I bought this on my card.......

7 x Breyer's ice cream on sale 2/$7=$24.50 *one has been eaten already so that's why 6 are in the photo.
2 x Suave body wash BOGOFree=$2.59
4 x Suave deodorant BOGOFree=$4.58
2 x Russell Stover pumpkins on sale=$1.00

Coupons Used
1 x $8 off wyspend $30 CatalinaQ=$8.00
7 x $1.50/1 Breyer's ice cream IPQ=$10.50
Coupon total......$18.50

$32.67-$18.50=$14.17 +.43¢ tax=$14.60 paid for with Bonus Cash
I earned back $15.00 in new Bonus Cash(2 x $4 wyspend $12 on select food/drink, 3 x $2 Suave, $1 R/S pumpkins)making this a .40¢ moneymaker.
I also submitted for $3 in Ibotta cash rebates(2 x Suave body wash .25¢, 4 x Suave deodorant .50¢)so now it's a $3.40 moneymaker.

I noticed on the receipts that all the Oral-B/Crest items I had bought so far not only earned a $3 Rebate for that item BUT there was a Spend $20/Earn $5 that they also qualified for as I had tracking toward that BC Deal now on both cards.  Turns out this $5/on $20 Deal is a monthly one that most P&G items qualify for.

So I headed back on Monday and bought this on my card which had $8 tracking.........

2 x Crest toothpaste on sale=$4.00
1 x Old Spice deodorant 20% Wellness disc.=$4.63

I only had a $1/1 Old Spice deo. ManuQ to use so $8.63-$1.00=$7.63+.22¢ tax=$7.85 paid for with Bonus Cash.
I earned back $8 in new Bonus Cash(2 x $3 Crest, $5 wyspend $20)so this was a .15¢ moneymaker.

Then I bought this on daughter's card.........

2 x Playtex tampons on sale=$13.98
1 x Oral-B 2 pack toothbrushes 20% Wellness disc.=$6.79

Coupons Used
1 x $4 wyspend $20 CatlinaQ=$4.00
2 x $2/1 Playtex tampons In-AdQ=$4.00
2 x $2/1 Playtex tampon IPQ=$4.00
1 x $2/1 Oral-B mutli-pack In-AdQ=$2.00
Coupon Total.....$14.00

$20.77-$14.00=$6.77 paid for with Bonus Cash
I earned back $5($5 wyspend $20)so "spent down" $1.77 in BC.
But then I submitted my receipt to Ibotta and earned $8.00 in cash rebates(2 x $2.50 Playtex, $3 Oral-B multi-pack "Vivid" type toothbrushes)and received a $2 Playtex rebate on SavingStar so this becomes a $8.23 moneymaker.  8-)

Then I hit Rite-Aid on Wednesday as it was Wellness Wednesday(1st Wed. of the month).  The free samples were mighty thin at my store.......a pack of Emergen-C tablets and a trial size of Sensodyne toothpaste(the one Hubs uses)which I didn't take a photo of, sorry.

The Wellness Wednesday one day coupons weren't too great for my needs BUT........
The same WW coupons in the one day pamphlet can be loaded to your Wellness card as L2CQs now.

I tested a theory and bought this on daughter's card(the only card where I can access the Load2Card Qs).......

2 x Colgate toothpaste on sale($3.99)=$7.98
1 x Gold Bond anti-itch cream 20% Wellness disc.=$7.59

2 x $2/1 Colgate In-AdQ=$4.00
1 x $4/2 Colgate L2CQ=$4.00
1 x $3/1 Gold Bond anti-itch cream L2CQ=$3.00
1 x $3/1 Gold Bond anit-itch cream WWQ=$3.00
Coupon Total.......$14.00

$15.57-$14.00-$1.57 paid for with Bonus Cash.
Didn't earn any new BC back but my theory worked.....both the paper pamphlet WWQ came off AND the L2CQ for the same item so it was double coupon savings on the Gold Bond.
Yes! 8-)

I went home and found a $1/1 Gold Bond IPQ(figures I find it AFTER I bought the Gold Bond)so I'll take the Q up today and get $1 cash which makes this transaction cost me .57¢. ;-)

So I then bought this on daughter's card.  I had a $4 off $20 CatalinaQ to use but I had to account for all the L2CQs coming off before I used it on the transaction so my "total" had to be at least $20 BEFORE L2CQs.........

1 x Gold Bond cracked skin item 20% Wellness disc.=$6.79
2 x R-A cold and flu pills on sale=$8.00
1 x Nasacort allergy spray 20% Wellness disc.=$12.79
1 x Biscoff cookies 20% Wellness disc.=$2.71
1 x R/S sugar-free mint patties 20% Wellness disc.=$2.23
2 x Hershey bars(caramel cookie)20% Wellness disc.=$1.84
1 x random chocolate truffle 20% Wellness disc.=.31¢

Coupons Used
1 x $4 off $20 order CatalinaQ=$4.00
1 x $3/1 Gold Bond cracked skin WWQ=$3.00
2 x $2/1 R-A cold and flu WWQ=$4.00
1 x $5/1 Nasacort WWQ=$5.00
1 x $5/1 Nasacort L2CQ=$5.00
1 x $2/1 Biscoff WWQ=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Biscoff L2CQ=$2.00
1 x $1.50/1 R/S candy WWQ=$1.50
1 x $1.50/1 R/S candy L2CQ=$1.50
2 x .50/1 Hershey instant PeelieQ=$1.00
Coupon Total..$29.00

$34.67-$29.00=$5.67 paid for with Bonus Cash.
I earned back $2 in new BC($2 Nasacort)so "spent down" BC by $3.67.

So both the Nasacort Qs, Biscoff Qs, Russell Stover Qs came off but the Gold Bonds and the R-A cold and flu ones didn't.   If they had coupons would have totaled $34 and I would have spent .67 in BC and earned $2 back.
I could return those 3 items and get back $ in Bonus Cash on my card.  I'll probably just take another $1/1 Gold BondQ up and get $1 post coupon and keep it all which will make this a $2.67 spend down situation. ;-)

As things stand here's what each item cost me in this transaction......

Gold Bond cracked skin item=$2.79(after taking $1 off the $4 off $20 Q)
R-A cold and flu pills on sale=$1.00 each(after taking $1 off each for the $4 off $20Q)
Nasacort allergy spray=$1.79(after taking $1 off the $4 off $20Q)
Biscoff cookies= negative $1.29
R/S sugar-free mint patties=negative .77¢
Hershey bars(caramel cookie)20% Wellness disc.=.42¢ each
Random chocolate truffle=.31¢

Then I did the Crest/Oral-B weekly Deal items w/BC and items that double dip qualifying for the $5 wys $20 on P&G items on son's card using another $4 off $20 transaction CatalinaQ...........

2 x Crest toothpaste on sale=$8.00
2 x Oral-B toothbrushes on sale=$8.00
1 x Old Spice deodorant 20% Wellness disc.=$4.79

Coupons Used
1 x $4/$20 CatalinaQ=$4.00
1 x $1/1 Old Spice deo ManuQ=$1.00
Coupon Total....$5.00

$20.67-$5.00=$15.79 +.18¢ tax=$15.97 paid for with Bonus Cash.
I earned back $17.00 in new BC(2 x $3 Crest, 2 x $3 Oral-B,$5 wys $20 P&G items)so this was a $1.03 moneymaker.

Everything pictured in this post "cost" me $12.01 in Bonus Cash.
After $26.50 in cash Ibotta rebates/$2 SavingStar rebates I am "down" $12.01 in BC but "up" $28.60 in cash so up $16.49 overall.  8-)))

The only freebie deals left to finish this week are 2 more Suave items on my card and 8 Suave items on son's card(the Suave stuff is a freebie after Ibotta rebates).



  1. Well done!! tremendous savings and more amazing to me is how you keep track of everything! It seems you have this down to a science however I am curious how much time is devoted to keeping your list-coupons-shopping? Kinda behind the scenes sort of.....might make an interesting post.
