Rite-Aid....What I Bought Saturday & Sunday

I had $12 left in +Ups to spend on Saturday, so I took the advice of one of my lovely readers, Chitra, earlier last week and did the Unilever +Ups Deal--got some Axe Shower Gel(#2 son's fav)and Dove 'Poo, among other things.....
The Dove and Axe was $9.50 after Qs and I received a $5+Up Reward WYB $15 in products, so all 4 bottles cost me $4.50 total.
The pistachios were 2/$5 on sale so $2/$3 after $1/1 Qs.
The 3 greeting cards were better than free after 20% discount and the in-ad $3/3 store Q.
The candy bar was filler to get my total over $12 so I could use all my expiring +Ups.
I put the .37¢ leftover on my free gift card.
I spent $12 in +Ups and got $5 in +Ups back, so this transaction cost me $7.

Then on Sunday morning I did this....

2 x Tena pads on sale $9.99=$19.98
2 x Scunci hair bands on sale $1.99=$3.98
2 x Super Poligrip on sale $1.99=$3.98
I x local newspaper=$.99
3 x Easter candy bags(large $6.99 ones)on sale $4.99=$14.97
2 x Easter eggs w/Wellness discount 20% $.399=$7.98*not on sale so discount made them cheaper
1 x Cello Cherry filler w/Wellness discount 20%=$.26 *Not pictured*

Coupons Used
2 x $2.50/1 Tena IPQ=$5.00
2 x $1.50/1 PoliGrip AdPerks/VV IPQ=$3.00
1 x $1/3 Hershey's/Reese's Easter candy bags ManuQ=$1.00
1 x $1/2 Hershey's/Reese's Centerpiece Easter candies ManuQ=$1.00
Coupon Total....$10.00

$52.14-$10.00=$42.14 + .04¢ tax=$42.18
I used $42 in +Ups and put the $.18 on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received $13.98 in +Up Rewards back(1 x $10 wyb $20 of Hershey/Reese's Easter candy, 2 x $1.99 Scunci hair bands).
I qualified for $23.96 in SCRebates(2 x $9.99 Tena, 2 x $1.99 PoliGrip).
Spent $42 in +Ups, got $13.98 in +Ups back and $23.96 in cash rebates, so everything in the photo 'cost' me $4.06 in the end.
Not bad.....

Then I bought 2 each of the Tena, Scunci bands and the PoliGrip again on the BIL's card.  Oh, I also had to add in a Cello Cherry too....
SubTotal was $28.20.
Coupons were $8.00.
$20.20 + .05¢ tax=$20.25 OOP. ...still can't figure out the tax
I used $20 in +Ups to pay and put the .20¢ on the gift card.

My Rite-Aid gift card is now spent down to $49.99.

I received $3.98 in +Ups back for the Scunci bands and I'll get $23.96 back in SCRs.
$20 +Ups spent, $3.98 +Ups back and $23.96 in cash rebates, so this transaction was a MM of $7.94.
Would have been better if our region had gotten the Poligrip Q(and our PoliGrip was not the higher $2.49 reg. retail here!)but I am not

For Sunday's trips I 'spent' $62 in +Ups.....'rolling' $17.96 of them into more +Ups and 'converting' $44.04 balance of them into cash rebates, however my SCRs were $47.92, so I 'gained' $3.88 in cash.

  1. I just posted a comment about how good you did. So if I post twice just feel the love.
    I was wondering if you had any ideas for someone with a $5 off $40 at CVS with no bucks?

  2. SonyaAnn--I ALWAYS feel the love from you!8-)
    First off about CVS, what do you need/want to buy there? LMK and I'll set you up a scenario...

  3. Glad to see that you looked at my comment and considered it worthy of doing a transaction. Not sure why, but my teen also likes that Axe shower gel - only thing he uses.
    We have band camp in late summer this year and they have asked us to start getting the money ready.


Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
