Rite-Aid Trip......Rotten Week Here

Well we didn't get the awesome Regional Ad, dagnabbit!
No free Compleats, no almost free Shampoo for hoo.
I know EVERYONE is crying  at my little pity party, right? lol

So here is what I cobbled together......

2 x Lay's chips on sale 3/$6=$6.00
2 x Hormel chili on sale 2/$3=$3.00
1 x Nutter Butter cookies on sale=$2.99
3 x Milky Way candy bars on sale B2G1Free=$1.98
1 x Gas-X on sale=$4.99
6 x Puffs facial tissue on sale 4/$5=$7.50
1 x Dawn dish soap on sale 4/$5=$1.25
1 x RA brand magic eraser on sale 4/$5=$1.25

Coupons Used
1 x $1/2 Lay's Chips IPQ(Common Kindness site?)=$1.00
1 x $1/2 Hormel chili ManuQ=$1.00
1 x $1/1 Nutter Butter cookies(Facebook)=$1.00
1 x B2G1Free Milky Way bars IPQ=$.99
1 x $1/1 Gas-X item IPQ=$1.00
1 x $2/1 Gas-X VV AdPerks Q=$2.00
1 x $1/6 Puffs tissue ManuQ(sunday's insert)=$1.00
Coupon Total....$7.99

$28.96-$7.99=$20.97 + .06¢tax=$21.03
I used $20.98 in +Up Rewards and put the .05¢ OOP on my Rite-Aid gift card.
I earned $11 in new +Up Rewards(2 x $2 Puffs/Dawn wyb4, $2 Gas-X, $5 wyb $10 in select food items).  I also have $1.99 tracking toward another $5 wyb $10 of select food items Deal.

I ended up spending "down" $10 in +Ups with this order.
I got junk foods for #2 Son, cookies for us all, 3 candy bars for my secret stash, and facial tissue/soap/eraser cleaner thingy/gas aid we need or will need soon.
The best deal was the Gas-X.  After sale, Qs and +Up it gave back, it was free.

There is almost free Right Guard bar soap in the regular ad but of course, my tiny store had none.  But the shelf of Right Guard Body Wash was OVERFLOWING with product?  What is up with that Rite-Aid!?!?  I did get a raincheck though so I'll cross my fingers that more soap comes in before my Q expires.

I might go down to another Rite-Aid and see if they have any chili so I can do the $5 +Up wyb $10 food again(limit is 2 deals on that one).
Otherwise, I'll just hang on to last week's $5 in +Ups and try to roll it next week before it expires.

  1. No offense, Sluggy, but I wonder if your family has some type of hygiene challenges with the amount of deodorant, personal products, mouthwash, etc. that you go through.

    On the other hand, maybe all of you smell great, and no farting, either, thanks to the Gas-X.

    1. do realize I have a 16 yr old boy who has discovered GIRLS recently here, right?lol
      We don't go through it as quickly as I seem to be acquiring it recently. I have drawers of the stuff squirreled I give to the BIL, the son in college and my ever popular Boring Blog Box Giveaways need fresh prized.

  2. Maybe RA orderers sent body wash twixce and no soap.

  3. Picture this..................can you imagine how frugal our child would be? We should have a baby!
