3 Trips to Rite-Aid Late Last Week

I goofed up bigtime last Thursday at Rite-Aid.
I was trying to do the "Buy $20 of Hershey candies and get a $10 +Up Reward" Deal, but I miscalculated and didn't quite spend $20.
Ugh.

So I went right back in and spend another $3 and change to get over the $20 mark.  But by doing the 2nd trip too close timewise to the first, the system didn't sync up the 2 transactions, so the +Up still didn't print.
Ugh again.

So I went back on Friday and bought some more....not more candy, but I still had +Ups to roll/convert/burn before Saturday night AND Daughter wanted to use her GOS Cert. from before Xmas.
So I got the kids a new blow dryer and other stuff....and I STILL didn't spend all my expriring +Ups.
Triple UGH.

So....I went back Saturday evening to spend $4 in expiring +Ups.  I did end up buying more Easter candy(which also qualified for the Hershey +Ups Deal) AND my $10 +Ups FINALLY PRINTED!
Yay me!!!

So now, I'll be returning the $3 and change worth of Hershey's from Thursday night since the Saturday Hershey's also qualified for the +Ups Deal and put me over $20.  Those chocolate bunnies aren't pictured in my Photo since I am not counting them, but they will put another $3.18 on the Rite-Aid gift card(and take $1 off my +Ups left to spend total since I used $1 of them)when I return them since I paid with Qs, +Ups and a gift card.
That's just so you know when my gift card total goes up, that is why.

While the beginning of last week was all about rolling +Ups into more +Ups or converting +Ups into Single Check Rebate cash, these trips were all about spending expiring +Ups before they went kaput!lol
Since I wasn't able to roll most of the $26 that were expiring, I chose items that we needed/wanted and if possible things we also could get at least a partial amount back in +Ups like the chips, the candy, the cookies and the blow dryer.

Onward to the photo of the items I bought in those 3 transactions and the totals.....

    You know, if my head didn't already hurt from trying to calculate divorce settlement accounts, this would have put it right over the edge ;)

    As usual, very nice hauls!!!

    I still have my GOS $20 left, and the expiration date is looming. What to do, what to do. I need vitamins, so I guess I should do something with those -- isn't there a buy $20 get $10 Ups thing going on this week with Nature Made?

  3. Pretty--I emailed you about holding off until the week of 17th to use your GOS Cert.
    Sorry I made your head explode....lol

    SonyaAnn--Only YOU would read all that post and only see the PB Eggs...lolol
    PS-I loves them too!!! Did you try the big old Huge Egg yet? I think the ratio of chocolate coating to PB filling on that one is not quite right.
