TOOTHPASTE Coming Out of Your Ears this Week at Rite-Aid
Gee, I have really been on a Rite-Aid tear lately, huh?
If you need Toothpaste & Toothbrushes in your home, then Rite-Aid is the place to be this week.
Not only can you get Toothpaste & Toothbrushes there this week, you can get it for F-R-E-E!
Grab the sales flyer from this week at Rite-Aid. If you don't have one already from your Sunday newspaper, pick it up at the store.
In the Rite-Aid sales flyer there is a Rite-Aid coupon for $3 off 2 Colgate Products(toothpaste & brushes). Certain Colgate products are on sale for $3 each this week. Here's a photo of the page from the sales flyer. The coupon is in the upper right hand corner.
Go HERE and find the Colgate Toothpaste/Toothbrush Coupon. It's worth $3 off the purchase of a tube of Colgate Toothpaste(5.6 oz. or larger) AND any Colgate Toothbrush(except Plus, Extra Clean & Wisps). Print it out. (You should be able to print it twice, so get two or 4 if you have access to 2 computers with printers....more on that later.)
Go to the store with your coupons.
Get 2 Colgate products that qualify for both the sale and your coupons. (I got the Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste, 6 oz. tube, & a Max White Toothbrush.)
Use BOTH the Manufacturer's Colgate Coupon AND the Rite-Aid Coupon on your purchase.
Buy 2x$3 Colgate=$6.
Minus $3 for the Rite-Aid Coupon=$3
Minus $3 for the Manu. Coupon=$0!
Well, you may have to pay tax, depending what state you make this purchase in.
The Internet printed Coupon has the 'Walgreens' logo on it. If the cashier is anal(lol)he/she may try to tell you that Rite-Aid can't take this coupon, because it has a Wags logo on it. But the coupons does NOT say "redeemable ONLY at Walgreens" anywhere on it. Further, if you READ the coupon, it says "Redeemable at Food, Drug, Discount and other Stores accepting coupons."
Can you guess who got an ANAL Cashier who said she couldn't take the coupon and had to call the Manager and he actually READ the thing and said it was fine? 8-P
Now if you were able to print more than one $3 off Colgate coupon from the website, cut out another Rite-Aid coupon from the sales flyer and do it again.
Or try doing this.....
Print out 4 Colgate $3 Coupons from Coupons.com(you'll need access to at least 2 different computers w/printers).
Cut out 4 Rite-Aid $3 off Colgate Coupons from the sales flyer AND print a $5 off $25 Rite-Aid purchase coupon from HERE.
Go to the store.
Get 8 Colgate Toothpaste/Toothbrushes, on sale for $3 each, for a total of $24.
Get $5 worth of additional items you want/need.
Take it all to the register to pay.
Total comes to $29(+tax in some states).
Hand Cashier your $5 off $25 Coupon.
Then hand over your 4 Rite-Aid sales flyer coupons & the 4 Colgate IP coupons.
$24-4x$3off RA Q($12)=$12
Congratulations....you just got 4 tubes of Toothpaste & 4 Toothbrushes Plus $5 of other items for ZERO money(if you don't count the sales tax, if it's due in your state).
But it gets even better!
In addition....there is another offer from Rite-Aid in the Single Check Rebate flyer you can submit for. It's #501--Purchase $15 of ANY Variety of Oral Care Products(Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Mouth Rinse, Floss, Whitening Products, etc.) and receive a FREE Summer Fun Tote Bag. The bag comes packed with over "$10 in free items". Pictured in the flyer are magazines, gum, vitamins & a bottled water. I received one of these FREE bag type deals in June for some skin care items I bought and it had tons of little samples of other products plus 2 Coupons for FREE full sized items. Personally, I wouldn't go out of my way & actually spend $15 to get this bag of stuff, but if I "spent" $15(before coupons)to get free toothpaste & brushes and they want to give me this bag of goodies too for FREE, that's fine by me!lolol
If you would like the Summer Fun Tote Bag and you don't want to buy 8 brushes & pastes to get it OR you can't print out enough coupons to get 4 sets of paste/brush, there are other qualifying products with MONEY Rebates as well this month that would also get you the Tote Bag once you hit $15. They are SCR#119-#126(though the valid purchase dates for #124 is past). You can pair your 2 or 4 pastes/brushes with some of these other Oral Care Rebates and if you 'spend' $15, you'll qualify for the FREE Tote Bag too. The Week of 8/23-8/29 there is a Colgate Advanced Whitening Rebate FREEBIE...spend $2.49 that week, get the whole amount back. That would be a good one to help get you to $15 of products for the Free Tote Bag.
Also, In the Oral Care area it's worth checking for Clearance prices on the Classic version of THE DOCTOR'S Night Guard product. I found a Rite-Aid around here last month that was clearancing this version of the product out for 50% off. The SCRebate last month, as well as this month on either version is $14(SCR#122). I spent $12.49+tax on clearance and got $14 back....plus I have the Night Guard to sell on eBay for about another $8. That will put me about $4 ahead after sales tax and eBay fees on this one item. So check the shelves for this item on sale while you are over in the Toothpaste aisle anyway.
