I Went to Rite-Aid This Week

I have a $20 +Up Reward expiring on Sat., 2/9.  With the snowstorm heading this way, I went Thursday to spend it, instead of waiting until the weekend.

Most of the freebies and almost freebies were gone already.
My mission was to get as close to $20 OOP after coupons and buy only items we can use....

2 x Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent on sale $3.99=$7.98
2 x Gillette disposable Razors on sale $7.49(Gold discount less at $6.39)=$12.78
2 x Hall's cough drops on sale $1.50=$3.00
2 x Reach Toothbrushes on sale $2.99=$5.98
1 x St. Joseph Aspirin on sale=$4.99

Coupons Used
1 x BOGO Gillette disposable Razors ManuQ(2/3RP)=$6.39
1 x $2/1 Gillette disposable Razors ManuQ(1/20SS)=$2.00
1 x $1/2 Hall's cough drops ManuQ(1/6SS1)=$1.00
2 x $1/1 Reach toothbrush Tearpad Q(from dentist office)=$2.00
1 x $2.25/1 St. Joseph item ManuQ(2/3SS)=$2.25
Coupon Total....$13.64

I used my $20 +Up Reward and put the  $1.12 on my Rite-Aid gift card.

I received back $9 in +Up Rewards(2 x $2 Arm&Hammer, 2 x $2 Reach, $1 Halls).
I have $28.75 in tracking for the February Anniversary Promotion.

I had a Load2Card digital Q for $1/2 Reach toothbrushes but it didn't come off.  I was expecting my total after Qs to be $20.12 instead.  Oh well.  Those L2C Qs are hit and miss so badly that I NEVER count on them anymore.

  1. I have been waiting to hear about your January Finish Bonanza. Did I miss it? I think I got rid of the Finish coupons just before you said you were going to get the free Finish to last you the year. I do not use Finish, but for free dishwashing, I can. How often do you use your dishwasher each week.

    Or, am I off on any of this? Did I dream it? If I am dreaming of you and coupons, I need to readjust my life.

    1. I didn't do the Jan. Finish Bonanza this year. I had something like 43 boxes leftover from previous years still so I didn't feel the need. With 4 people here, we do a dishwasher load about every 3rd day, so about twice a week.

    2. I suppose I will have to remember to save the Finish coupons toward the end of the year and get it done next Jan. Thanks.

  2. Hi there! Thanks for dropping by my blog. How did you find me?

    1. Hi Sean R.
      I am a reader on Dr. Spo, "Someone"'s and Ron's blogs. I poke around on their blogrolls(if they have one)every now and again and that's where I finded you! 8-)

  3. I haven't been in a drugstore since before Christmas.

    1. If I didn't have +Ups to roll Frances, I probably wouldn't have been back yet either. lol

  4. You're good! I haven't been to Rite Aid in a few weeks. We're pretty much stocked, except for kid's tylenol. Since the end of November, we've gone through 6 bottles! Once they are over 5, it's like 1/3 of the bottle per dose or something! I'm waiting for my BFFs at Rite Aid to have another sale on the generic.

    1. I remember the kids do go through the Tylenol fast once they aren't toddlers anymore!
      Get ready to go to R-A.....starting Sunday R-A brand children's Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen are BOGO. ;-)

  5. You are doing amazing. I haven't been to CVS lately. There hasn't been much that I have needed. And that iis a good thing.
