Last Rite-Aid of The Week......Rolling All the +Up Rewards

Well you knew I had to go back to Rite-Aid this week, didn't you?
After all, I hadn't used my Wellness card to get the freebies. 8-)
So I got toothpaste and aspirin again like on Monday plus something for the doggies....

4 x Colgate Toothpaste on sale $2.99=$11.96
2 x St. Joseph Aspirin on sale $1.50=$3.00
2 x Pedigree Dog Food on sale $4.99=$9.98
SubTotal.....$24.94

Coupons Used
2x $3/1 any Pedigree dog food product IPQ=$6.00
Coupon Total....$6.00

$24.94-$6.00=$18.94
I used $18.78 in +Up Rewards to pay and put the .16¢ OOP left on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I received $14.96 back in +Up Rewards(4 x $2.99 Colgate, 2 x $1.50 St. Joseph), so I am 'down' $3.82 in +Ups for this transaction.

Here's a Couponing tip--
If you see a high value coupon available to print online and it's for an item you use or think you might need but there is no sale right now on that item to pair the coupon with, go ahead and print it.
 I had printed off those Pedigree $3/1 Qs about a month ago and was waiting for an opportunity to come along to use them.   I had time because they had a long dated expiration......2 months I think.

We use dog food and I figured even if a sale didn't come along I could use the Qs on something to get it for cheap or free.
With the sale at Rite-Aid and Qs, those bags of kibble cost me $1.99 each, but since I paid with +Ups they ended up not costing me anything.
I could have also gotten 8 cans of wet canned dog food at the grocery store at regular price with them....8 x .79¢=$6.32-$6 Qs=$.32 OOP.....but I didn't need cans at this point and I would have had to spend actual cash money!lol
So that's why I bought the kibble at Rite-Aid.

I've rolled all my +Ups for this week now.  I have a boatload expriring 2 Saturdays from now so I'm going to check out the upcoming sales flyers to map out my strategy on the most advantageous way to use them.
Check back later for what I figure out. ;-)

  1. Thanks for the tips Sluggy. I never saw the bag of dog food coupons. Can you fill me in on what site I can, or should have, printed them from? Thanks. m.

  2. Mark-I believe it was on coupons dotcom, but that was April I believe and high values on that website run out fast! I'd suggest you put a couple of the big deal blogs in your favorites folder and check them daily so you get the word on HOT Qs fast.
    Or better yet, subscribe by email to a big deal blogger and you'll get an email each day with all that day's hot offers. I subscribe to a few and I just glance down the list of offers to get anything I want and then delete that baby. Of course I don't always get everything deleted quickly and that explains my bulging inbox.lol

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.
