Monday's R-A Haul...The Daily Plunder

Is it "Talk Like a Pirate Day"?lol

I had the BIL along with me on this trip. He wanted to buy some Brita filters so I built a transaction around that purchase and I let him use $3 of the $5 on the $5 off $25 purchase coupon.  Both transactions are pictured together....
1 x Fiber One Cereal*not pictured-gave it to BIL* w/wellness disc.=$3.83
1 x 3 pack Brita Filters*not pictured*=$14.99
2 x Eco Tools Sponge BOGO50%=$2.98
6 x Rite-Aid cellophane tape BOGO=$4.47
2 x Combos Snack Bag on sale=$1.00

Coupons Used
1 x $5 off $25 purchase=$5.00
1 x FREE ITEM Fiber One Cereal Q=$3.83
1 x $.50/2 Combos ManuQ=$.50
Coupon Total....$9.33

Used $18 +Up Rewards and put $.11 on my Rite-Aid gift card.

I received $11 +Up Rewards back(6x$1 tape, $5wyb 2 Eco-Tools).
*I should have only been able to use $17 in +Ups to pay since $18 took off some tax, but the cashier did the transaction like this and the register let her. ;-)

While I am "down" $7+Ups on this transaction, I used +Ups to pay for the $11.99 BIL owed for the Brita Filters which he is paying me back for, so I basically just converted those +Ups to cash.
I'll count the +Ups used in the loss column but I'll put the cash I get back from him in the "Other Cash" received column.

  1. I told my sister about you and Rite Aid the other day. SHe is very impressed! And if she were a blog follower and had a Rite aid close by, she'd be following you chicky!
