3 Days of Rite-Aid Pillaging from Black Friday Sales Ad

Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday was the Black Friday Deals at Rite-Aid.  Other than the grocery store, Rite-Aid is the only place I go Black Friday shopping. 8-)

For the purposes of full disclosure, I bought various gift cards on Thursday(along with all the Freebie and near freebie deals after Bonus Cash earned).  The gift cards are ones I would have bought anyway and it's better for me to buy them at Rite-Aid and earned Bonus Cash than buying them at the grocery stores for piddly discounts on gas fill-ups.
  I don't count the price of the gift card spending in my Rite-Aid purchases budget.  The Bonus Cash earned from buying the gift cards is used to "pay" for my Rite-Aid plunder.

No actual cash was used in any of the following transaction, just Bonus Cash.

No point in laying out all the transactions at this point so I'll just do a synopsis of what I got and show photos of all the loot.


On Thursday I bought this on the Daughter's card.....


These 4 Kleenex were .37¢ per box after sale/Q/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Colgate toothpaste were -$1.39 for both after sale/Q/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Light bulbs were $0 each after sale/Bonus Cash earned/Ibotta rebate.
This 1 Colgate toothbrushes was -.33¢ after sale/In-ad Q/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Butterfingers were $0 each after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Hair ties were $0 each after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 pair of ear buds were $0 after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 3 boxes of cereal were $1.48 each after sale/Q.
This 1 bag of Coffee was $1.99 after sale/Q/Saving* rebate.

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


These 4 Kleenex were .37¢ per box after sale/Q/Bonus Cash.
These 2 Colgate toothpaste were -$1.75 for both after sale/In-ad Q/stacked ManQ/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Light bulbs were -.61¢ each after sale/Bonus Cash earned/Ibotta rebate.
These 2 Colgate toothbrushes were .50¢ each after sale/In-ad Q/stacked ManQ/Bonus Cash earned.
These 4 Butterfingers were .25¢ for all 4 after sale/Q/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Hairbrushes were $0 each after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
This pair of ear buds was $0 after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 packs of Duracell batteries were $2.00 per pack after sale/Qs/Bonus Cash earned.

But I forgot to bring $725 in Qs to use, so I burned $7.25 in Bonus Cash on those 2 transactions and got $7.25 in cash the next day with a "post coupon" transaction.




On Friday I bought this on my daughter's card........


These 2 Blue Diamond nuts were $1.50 each after sale/Q.
These 2 Pepsis were .50¢ each after sale/Q.
These 2 DiGiorno pizzas were $3.00 each after sale/Q.
I also bought 4 packages of Sparkle paper towels(not pictured)for $13.23 total after sale/Qs/Bonus Cash earned. 
These burned more BC than I wanted as my good L2CQ didn't come off and I had to use a .75¢/1 peelie stuck to one of the packages.

On Friday I bought this on my son's card........


These 4 Kleenex were .25¢ per box after sale/Q/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 packs of Planters were $2.99 per set after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Colgate toothpaste were -$1.75 for both after sale/In-ad Q/stacked ManuQ/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Light bulbs were -.61¢ each after sale/Bonus Cash earned/Ibotta rebate.
These 2 boxes of K-Cups were $3.74 each after sale/Q.
These 2 bags of coffee were $3.99 after sale/Q.
These 2 bags of Luden's cough drops were .25¢ each after sale/Q/Saving* rebate
These 2 Hair ties were $0 each after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 pair of ear buds were $0 after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 Butterfingers were $0 each after sale/Bonus Cash earned.
These 2 packs of Duracell batteries were $2.00 per pack after sale/Qs/Bonus Cash earned.
I also bought a bottle of Pepto-Bismol(not pictured)per Hubs request, which after 20% Wellness discount/In-ad Q/stacked ManuQ cost me $4.43 in BC.

The Kleenex purchase also triggered a $20 Bonus Cash earned on my Allergy Rewards for this card. 8-)))



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


These 2 Vera Wang fragrance sets were $8.99 after sale/Bonus Cash earned/Ibotta rebate/Checkout51 rebate(1 set).

I also bought 2 24 packs of Big Win water on sale at $1.75 each.(not pictured).

In addition to the rebates above I have now earned a $5 Saving* rebate for buying over $25 worth of fragrance sets and an additional $1 Ibotta Bonus rebate for buying 3 qualifying Neutrogena items in this transation.

Lastly, on Saturday I also bought this on my son's card........


These 3 cereals were $2.99 for all 3 boxes after sale/Q//Ibotta rebate.
These 2 bags of Luden's cough drops were $1.25 for both after sale/Q.
This 1 Colgate toothpaste was -.25¢ after sale/In-adQ/stacked ManuQ.

In Total......
* $321.36 in Bonus Cash was used.

* $174.00 in Bonus Cash was earned.
* $6.75 in Saving* rebates was earned.
* $21.30 in Ibotta rebates was earned.
* $4.00 in Checkout51 rebates was earned.
* $7.25 in "Post Coupon" cash was earned.

Bottom line.....I "spent down" $108.06 in Bonus Cash with $13.00 of that being state sales tax($95.06 before tax).
Not bad for $639.15 reg. retail worth of stuff, huh?  ;-)

  11. I hope this goes through since i’ve been having issues for months on all blogs.
    You are still the queen, Sluggy! I spent zero money at rite-aid since I live in a rite-aid desert. booo.... I did buy myself an iPad mini. I’m still figuring it all out. I walked into several other stores and walked out empty handed. Happy about that!
