Rite-Aid Shop Last Week & This Week

The only Rite-Aid I went into from the 5th to the 17th of this month was in West Ocean City MD.  And I didn't buy anything on that trip!(It was a bad week for deals at R-A anyway.)  Kim's Sissie was returning stuff and we just tagged along.

So I did a tiny little shop this past Friday.........

2 x Russell Stover chocies on sale=$1.00
1 x Colgate toothbrush on sale=$3.99
1 x Colgate toothpaste on sale=$3.99

I used--
1 x $1/2 R/S chocies L2CQ=$1.00
2 x $2/1 Colgate item In-AdQ=$4.00
1 x $1/1 Colgate toothbrush ManQ=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Colgate toothpaste ManQ=$1.00
Coupon Total.....$7.00

$8.98-$7.00=$1.98 paid for with Bonus Cash
I earned back $2 in new BC($1 Colgate brush/$1 Colgate paste)so a .02¢ moneymaker.

Then I bought this on Saturday(because I forgot to cut out the Mitchum Qs for Friday's trip)......

2 x Mitchum deodorant 20% wellness disc.=$7.18
2 x R/S chocies on sale=$1.00

Coupons Used
2 x $2/1 Mitchum In-AdQ=$4.00
2 x $2/1 Mitchum ManQ=$4.00
Coupon Total.........$8.00

$8.18-$8.00=.18¢ OOP paid for with Bonus Cash.

Now onward to the current week's sales.
Sunday I bought this on daughter's card.......

4 x Airwick air thingies on sale(2/$5)=$10.00
2 x Colgate Optic White toothpaste on sale($3.50)=$7.00

Coupons Used
2 x $2.50/2 Airwick IPQ=$5.00
2 x $3/1 Colgate In-AdQ=$6.00
1 x $1/2 Colgate toothpaste ManQ=$1.00
Coupon Total.......$12.00

$17.00-$12.00=$5.00+.30¢tax=$5.30 paid with Bonus Cash.

I earned back $8 in new BC(2 x $4 Airwick)making this is $2.70 moneymaker.

Then I bought this on my card...........

2 x Airwick air thingies on sale=$5.00
2 x Lysol wipes on sale=$5.00

Coupons Used
1 x $2.50/2 Airwick IPQ=2.50
1 x $1/2 Lysol wipes ManQ=$1.00
Coupon Total.........$3.50

$10.00-$3.50=$6.50+.39¢tax=$6.89 paid for with BC.
I earned back $8 in new BC(2 x $4 Airwick/Lysol)again making this a $1.11 moneymaker.

I would have bought 4 Airwicks again but my store only had 3 left so I punted and got the Lysol wipes instead...smaller moneymaker but that's ok.

I can go back after the truck comes in this week and use my other Airwick Q on my son's card if I feel like it.  I've got a whole $1 in BC on it so after using a $2.50/2 IPQ and that $1 BC will have to spend $1.50+ tax on my gift card to earn $4 in BC back.
But I might not feel like it.....we'll see.



  1. I forget if you keep these purchases in a big closet or they are distributed throughout the household?

    1. The stuff we will use here(me, Hubs, son)goes into one of the 2 toiletries dressers in my sewing room. The stuff for other family(son, brother in-law, nephew)goes in a bag until I have enough to distribute and the rest goes into the Giveaway pile and/or the local Food Pantry pile.

  2. Thanks I needed the reminder to go use points or I will lose them while I am gone!
