End of the Week at Rite-Aid & Monthly Totals There for May

*I am done for May shopping at Rite-Aid, so skip down and check out my Totals for the month!*

So Hubs and I went up to Rite-Aid on Friday evening to burn some expiring +Ups....

I bought 3 12-packs of Coke, a 12 pack of Cottonelle TP and a single serve pack of PB crackers as a filler item(so I could use my +Ups and not spend more down on my gift card).

The total came to $16.37(I had NO Qs! the horror!!).
I used $16 in expiring +Ups and put the .37¢ on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received $3 back in +Up Rewards($1 for the TP and $2 for the Cokes).

Then Saturday I had errands to run so Daughter and I stopped off at Rite-Aid to finish off the Allergy & Weekend Warrior +Ups Deals, since the Allergy one ended on Saturday 5/28.

I bought....
2 bags of Hall's drops w/my 20% discount they were $2.15 each, so $4.30*These got me the $5 Allergy +Up.
1 Lamasil gel on sale for $8.99.  It had a $2 Peelie Q on it and I had a $2 IPQ, so $4.99 after Qs.
1 Bengay w/my 20% discount was $7.19.  I had the $2 in-ad Q and a $3 IPQ, so $2.19after Qs.
I Bengay w/my 20% discount was $7.59.  I had another set of $5 in Qs, so $2.59.
2 20 oz. Cokes *not pictured* w/my 20% discount were $2.70 total.  I had a $1/2 coke IPQ, so $1.70 for both...we were thirsty. ;-)

Take another $5 off(a $3/$15 Survey Q and 2 Wellness $1 off any purchase AdPerk/VV Q) and my subtotal was $10.77.
I used $10 in +Ups and put the .77¢ on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received back $6 in +Up Rewards($5 for Allergy Deal, $1 Lamasil).
I did NOT get the $10 Weekend Warrior +Ups because one of the Bengays did NOT qualify!
Ugh. ugh. ugh.
All was not lost however, because I qualified for the $5 SCR #19(Lamasil), so after SCRs and +Ups I got back $11 even without the WkndWarior +Up Reward.

So it was off to another Rite-Aid to find a tube of Bengay or something else to spend that last $2.02 I needed to make the $25 spent threshold for the $10 +Ups.

The green tube at the bottom of the photo is what we found and bought. 8-)
$4.39 with discount, take the In-ad $2 Q off and the total was $2.39.(I had no more $3 IPQ dangit!)
I used $2 +Ups to pay and put the .39¢ on the trusty ol' gift card.
And the $10 Wknd Warrior +Ups spit out of the register....yay!

Number of Transactions.....3
Total Spent....$1.53 (put on free Rite-Aid gift card)
Value of Items....$74.87
SCR qualified for...$5.00
Other Rebates earned...$0.00
Gift Cards earned....$0.00
+Up Rewards earned...$19.00
+Up Rewards spent.....$28.00
+Up Rewards left to spend.....$51.00  And I have $44.71 left on my gift card.

So with the $5 SCR added on, I am 'down' $4 for these transactions.

***Rite-Aid GRAND TOTALS--MAY Rebate Period***

Number of Transactions......22
Total Spent....$11.25 put on free Gift Cards/Certificates so ZERO OOP
Value of Items purchased....$947.79
SCR qualified for....$21.00
Other Cash....$0.00

Additional Rebates....$0.00
Additional Non-Cash Rewards....$0.00

+UPS Totals for May SCR period
+Up Rewards carryover from 5/25.....$60.00

+Up Rewards spent....$131.52
+Up Rewards earned....$131.52

**I've earned the same amount as I've spent in +Ups at this point in
+Up Rewards left....$51.00  includes ALL +Ups not just ones from this SCR period

So I spent $11.25 in FREE gift card money and took home $947.79 worth of stuff in May at Rite-Aid.
Plus I'll be getting a rebate check for $21.00 later next month from them and I have $51.00 in +Ups to spend going forward.

What is NOT to like about this system?!?!



  1. Wow! You must have done A LOT over the weekend to need that much Bengay!

  2. Good job! I'm still wishin' that we had a Rite-aid.

  3. McVal--LOLOL We did actually need some of it after the yardwork we did on Sunday!

    SonyaAnn--Well stop mucking around in your kitchen and come on over!! ;-)

  4. Another stellar Rite Aid month for you!!!!

    I still don't understand what I've done to piss off the RA gods who refuse to let me have another $3/$15 survey on my receipt... :(

    Onward to a new month!
