What is Sluggy "Buying" at Rite-Aid This Week?

Maybe I should make that post heading "What is Sluggy Taking Home from Rite-Aid This Week?" instead.  Saying "BUYING" seems a little misleading to me. lol
Or maybe "What is Rite-Aid Giving Sluggy This Week?"
I just can't choose..... ;-)

Had to brave the bone-chilling cold and make a trip to Rite-Aid after dinner tonight.
And I finally got my Christmas tablecloth out too! 8-)

 Coupon Total...$19.50


+Up Rewards used...$6.00
OOP......$.22 put on free Rite-Aid gift card

Received $10 in +Up Rewards(2 x $2 Pot of Gold, $4 Revlon wyb2, $1 Airborne, $1 Chloraseptic)
"Spent" 6+Ups, Got 10+Ups back=$4 moneymaker.

*It was a treasure hunt this evening trying to find these boxes of chocolates.  Supervisor said they were out and the truck is due in tomorrow(truck usually comes on Thurs/Fri.)and they might get more in(though I've heard reports that the warehouse is empty of this item already).  These boxes of Hershey's choccies are not a regularly stocked item, they are seasonal so I don't have much hope that there will be anymore showing up on store shelves.  If you find some, buy them!
I did find 2 boxes however that someone had hidden behind larger different brands of chocolates.  No doubt they were coming back later to buy them.hehehe

**I used 2 of the $3/1 emailed Wellness Qs, one for each bottle.  Some stores let you use 2, some don't so YMMV.

***This item was NOT in the sales flyer here this week but it IS on sale and giving a $1 +Ups and qualifies for SCR #82.  You can also buy the LOZENGES AND GET ANOTHER $2 SCR!  The lozenges are #81 and they are also on sale for $3.99 and giving the $1+Ups.  Limit of one of each type of Chloraseptic product.  I didn't realize both items had separate rebates until now.  I guess I'll be heading back to Rite-Aid later this week. ;-)

And the Colgate Toothpaste that's on sale this week and giving a $2 +Up?  My store is already out and it's only Monday!

There isn't a whole lot I want this week from the sales flyer.  Maybe some more nail polish for Daughter's stocking(sshhhh, don't tell!!)  This week, as will be most weeks leading up to Christmas, the sales are all about gifts and seasonal stuff like lights, decorations, candy/food and gift sets.  I don't necessarily "need" any of that stuff.  None of my +Ups expire at the end of this week so don't have to roll any.  The +Ups you get this week(unless they are month or longer deals)will expire on 12/25.  Keep that in mind so you don't end up forgetting to roll them within the next 2 weeks.

I have managed to get to the $5 level with the Gift of Savings Promo.  Not because of how much(or rather how little)I've spent OOP.  But because I have found some receipts outside in the parking lot that were thrown away.

I call it my community anti-litter campaign.  I am simply beautifying my town and I'm starting with the parking lot by Rite-Aid. lolol
And if that doesn't get me anywhere, I am not above getting a tin cup and holding a sign down by the traffic light that says, "Will work for Rite-Aid receipts."

  1. You amaze me--as always. Hope you are keeping warm.

  2. I love your Rite Aid posts. I was hoping to get there but I don't drive in snow and it's still snowing here.

  3. I vote for "What Rite Aid is Paying Sluggy to Take Home This Week" :)

  4. I am so stupid. I never thought of using two coupons for the nail polish since you are buying two. Duh.

    Awesome shopping trip for you. They didnt have any pot of gold when I went Sunday morning and then the cashier got all huffy and said "its sold out because its been on sale for three weeks". I wanted to tell her off but I didnt.

  5. April--Whether they let you use 2 Qs for the nail polish is a YMMV situation. Some stores/cashiers won't but I haven't run across any personally that have a problem with using 2 as long as you buy 2. ;-)

    My store that got more Pot of Gold in are out, again!lol
    And it's advertised in next weeks ad again.....argh!
    Bad bad planning on Rite-Aids part I think....
