Rite-Aid on Sunday

I am usually the guinea pig at my Rite-Aid if I go on Sunday, the first day of a new ad week.

There is a coupon on the front of this week's ad--Spend $40 on select items and earn $10 Bonus Cash.
Only the "select items" aren't explained what the heck they are and the management at my store isn't usually told the details of stuff like this. ugh.

My friend the assistant manager thought the BC coupon applied to items in the blue shaded background on the front and the back page of the ad only as the BC Q on the front was also shaded blue.  The manager had no clue what the "select items" were.
I figured it might be all the items in the ad qualified.

So I bought all this on son's card which still had a lot of BC attached to it..........


2 x Head and Shoulders shampoo(clearance varieties at $3.74 ea.)=$7.48
2 x Glad black trash bags on sale=$10.00
2 x Glad kitchen bags on sale=$10.00
2 x DiGiorno frozen pizza on sale=$10.00*not pictured*
2 x Olay whip body wash(clearance)=$6.98
SubTotal........$44.46

Coupons Used
1 x $6 when you spend $30 R-AQ=$6.00
1 x $3.50/2 Head and Shoulders ReceiptQ=$3.50
1 x $1/1 Glad kitchen bags L2CQ=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Glad kitchen bags IPQ=$1.00
1 x $1.50/1 DiGiorno CatalinaQ=$1.50
1 x $5/2 Olay bath items ReceiptQ=$5.00
Coupon Total.....$18.00

$44.46-$18.00=$26.46+$1.14 sales tax=$27.60 paid for with Bonus Cash.
I earned back $20 in new Bonus Cash($10 wys $40Q, 2 x $5 wyb2 Glad bags)so spent down BC by $7.60.


I also earned a $1 Catalina for buying the 2 pizzas so I "spent" $6.60 when all was said and done.
This Catalina doesn't expire until 12/29 so I can hold it to use after Xmas when things go on clearance at Rite-Aid, woohoo! lolz

  1. So which items qualified? I am still trying to figure it out before I head in--is it all in this week's ad, or the shaded blue? (My Rite Aid has a very knowledgeable and helpful manager/assistant manager, but I can't be sure to be there when they are there...should have gone Sunday morning when the assistant is there...)

    1. As far as I can tell, both from my trip and my message board, it's whatever is in the ad will generate the BC. HTH

    2. I went in with a similar deal at Walgreen's and no one could tell me, so I left. I could barely stand as it was and the person did not want to find out by asking. It was just not worth the pain.

  2. Since all the Rite Aids here were part of the Walgreen's acquisition I don't have to feel incompetent that I did not get the bargains. Meanwhile I have 5 days to spend $20 in CVS Extra Bucks
