Rite-Aid Catch Up.....some Deals And End of SCR Period TOTALS

***Since I am not going to Rite-Aid today, which is the last day of the February Single Check Rebate Period, I have my Grand Totals for Feb. at the end of this post.  If you just want to see those, scroll to the very bottom of this post. ***

Here are my 2 shops for the end of last week at Rite-Aid.
Basic details only as the deals are done now....

More Johnson & Johnson free 'poo and baby wash products, free Finish, free Hall's, free Reach Floss, free item Q Ruffles, cheap Dixie plates, Hormel Compleats and Oreos.

OOP....$.41 put on free Rite-Aid gift card.
+Ups Spent....$34.50
+Ups Earned...$33.00
I am 'down' $1.50 in +Ups for these 2 trips.

Then on Sunday and Monday I bought all this at two different stores, on 2 different days, in 4 different transactions....

 I believe today, March 1st is the last day to snag all the free after +Ups snack items(Combos, Stax, TGIFridays and Burger King brands).  They are on sale for $1 each this week and generate a $1 +Up Reward thru March 1st.  The Bodi-Heat patches as well are on sale for $1 and generate a $1 +Up thru Tuesday.
Buying these snacks allowed me to 'roll' my +Up Rewards that are expiring this week.  I now have a ginormous pile of $1 +Ups that expire 3/15.  I'll be converting a bunch of these into cash, via SCRs offered during next week's sale.   What I don't convert, I'll roll or spend down.

I tried to use a raincheck for the Rite-Aid coffee(raincheck price was $1.99), but the coffee rang up $1.99 anyway.  It's regularly $4.49.  Sooo, either it'a an unadvertised temporary price reduction or nobody changed it in the system from when it was on sale for $1.99 over a month ago.  At any rate, there are $2/1 Rite-Aid coffee Qs located HERE.  You may be able to snag free coffee w/out a raincheck but price check the cans first.

In other raincheck news.....the Dove Deodorants were $1 each with my raincheck from 2 week's ago when it was on sale $2 each and gave a $2 +Up wyb 2.  I also had $2/1 Qs that expired Sunday, so I got $2 in overage.

The Dental Floss is also $1 this week on sale.  I have $2/1 Qs from a tearpad at my Dentist's office so I got $1 in overage on this item as well.  There are $1/1 Qs in the inserts also you can use if you don't have a cool dentist like me! ;-)

The Bouty Basic towels were .50¢ after $1/2 Qs and sale price of $1 each this week.  My Qs for this expired Monday but there are new identical ones in Sunday's P&G insert so go get your cheap towels!

Select Nivea lip products  are $1 on sale this week.  Check out Nivea's page on Facebook and snag a $2/2 Q there....you must "like" them first....to get some FREE lip stuff.

The Folgers is on sale for $2.99 this week and generates a $1 +Up.  Coupons.com has various values of Folger's Qs, depending on what zip code you use.  I found a $1.50/1 Q there so my can of coffee 'cost' me .49¢ after Q/sale/+Ups.  There is also a $2.50/2 Q and lower value Folgers Qs at that site so good luck finding a good value Q!

The Lysine Cold Sore Treatment stuff is also on sale for $1 this week.  There is a MIR of $1.25 located HERE.  Doubtful whether you'll get the rebate but it's worth a shot.  I bought the Lysine anyway since it's handy to have around and it is regularly $9.49!

Last but not least.....the Smart Start Cereal is BOGO this week at Rite-Aid, so 2 boxes for $4.99(at my store, your store's price may vary).  I used 2 x $1/1 IPQs from HERE, making 2 boxes $2.99.
There is a MIR on one of the boxes, so I can get a refund of the whole $4.99 I spent on that box.
Spend $2.99, get $4.99 back.....works for me!

Combined numbers for these 4 transactions....

OOP....$.70 put on free Rite-Aid gift card.

+Ups Earned...$36.00
I am 'up' $1.50 in +Ups for these 4 trips.

  1. Simply amazing. Pray that I get a Rite Aid. We have a CVS and a Wags so I don't know why we can't have a Rite Aid. We are in a large town so I don't see the hold up!LOL
