$20 in +Up Rewards were expiring so grabbing last Sunday's Q insert, up I hiked to Rite-Aid on Wednesday.....

Coupon Total.....$6.00

$26.01-$6.00=$20.01

I used 2 x $10 +Ups and was left paying .01¢ OOP.



Niiiiiiice!

I also received back $13 in new +Up Rewards for buying this stuff.
($3 wyb 2 Gear items, 2 x $2 wyb 1 Colgate toothbrush, 2 x $3 wyb 1 Colgate toothpaste)

My Rite-Aid was out of the Mitchum(figures!)which was on sale for $2.99(and there was a $2/1 Q in Sunday's Q inserts so .99¢ after Q), so I got a rain check and next time I go in to use my +Ups I'll get that and use my $2 Q.

Toothpaste, toothbrushes, soaps and body wash go into the toiletries stockpile.
The plastic wrap we were out of so that's in the kitchen now.

I'm only $55 toward the $100 I need to earn a Buy & Earn reward and this ends on Saturday so it looks like Sluggy won't get there in time.  I could go spend $45 on Buy & Earn items we "need" but most of them are not on sale.....that's how they get you in this game....make you pay more than you have to, to get the reward, then "reward" you with a $15 +Up, so in the end it's not a deal.

I'll settle for getting $40.50 worth of items for .01¢ out of pocket and $7 in +Ups(since I spent down that many when I only got $13 in +Ups back when I used my $20 +Ups).

And I don't need to go back until March 12th when these new +Up Rewards expire.

All these deals are good through Saturday evening at Rite-Aid.

    1. I did that actually, last January for a local ladies' group.
      There was a small contingent that poo-poo'ed my ideas......they only bought organic foods and refused to buy frozen veggies? Snobs..... ;-)

      The group never invited me back....no loss since they didn't pay me either. lol

  2. I wouldn't complain about paying $.01 for all of that! Good job!
