What I Bought at Rite-Aid Last Week

On Monday of last week I bought 1 tube of Colgate and the Alka-Seltzer Powermax meds.
There is a full price rebate(up to $11.99 on them HERE.  If you use a coupon they deduct that from the rebate you will receive back.) 

Sometimes it's good that a cashier screws up your transaction. 8-)))

My transaction was this......

1 x Colgate toothpaste on sale=$3.50
1 x A-S Powermax pills on sale but Wellness disc. better=$7.99

Coupons Used
1 x .50¢/1 Colgate toothpaste ManQ=.50¢
1 x $3/1 Colgate toothpaste In-AdQ=$3.00
1 x $3/1 Alka-Seltzer powermax ManQ=$3.00
Coupon Total....$6.50


The cashier didn't ring in my $3/1 In-Ad Q for the Alka-Seltzer so my total was $7.99

So I got $3 cash for a "post coupon" situation.
And since no coupon used for the Alka-Seltzer appears on my receipt I'll get $7.99 cash refund instead of a $4.99 refund. 8-)

I also earned $2 in Bonus Cash for buying the Alka-Seltzer product.

During out trip to VA/NC I picked up 3 more tubes of Colgate making sure they were the varieties that were part of a monthly deal giving back $3 in BC wys $12.........

* 2 tubes in Pocomoke City MD on the way down, used 2 x In-AdQs(had no more .50¢/1 ManuQs)so paid $1.42(.42¢ TAX!!!)total for those 2 tubes, using Bonus Cash of course.

* 1 tube in PA on the way home to finish off the $3 BC deal.  My sister in-law gave me the .50¢/1 Colgate Q from her Sunday paper so I used that and paid Zero on that tube.

In total I paid $9.42 in Bonus Cash for everything pictured, I earned $5 back in new BC($2 Alka-Seltzer, $3 wys $12 Colgate), $3 in cash for the forgotten Q I used, and $7.99 cash back from Alka-Seltzer.  That makes this a $6.58 moneymaker.

This week I have a $5 Catalina to use by Friday when it expires.  I'll either buy some Huggies(earn another $5 Cat and $10 in BC)and sell the diapers to make a small profit or buy some Ricola Immunity drops and earn back $6 new BC.
Decision, decisions, decisions.....

What are you buying this week?



  1. My head is spinning trying to decipher your deals! Great job!

  2. In July I was on a road trip through NY,PA,MD,WVA and VA and on my way back home, I stopped in my first ever Aldi, it was easily one of the most exciting days of my trip (and it was a fab trip! I'm just that big of a nerd).

  3. All the Rite Aids in our area closed. I'm still learning how to do CVS.
