Another Trip to Rite-Aid....Last One, I Promise! Or Maybe Not....lolz

While I was checking out at Rite-Aid on Sunday I saw the cashier had a sheet of 50% shelf stickers laying on the counter.
She had interrupted her "sticker placing" to ring me up.
I notice one of the 50% off stickers was for a Tresemme product(and buying 2 this week gets you a $3 +Up Reward)so I gathered my $2/1 Tresemme Qs and went back today while I was out dropping the Hubs at the auto repair shop.

Here's what I picked up.......

2 x Tresemme split end 'Poo 50% off=$6.98
1 x Colgate mouthwash on sale=$2.99
1 x Aleve PM 20% Wellness discount=$5.43
1 x Mucinex tea 20% Wellness discount=$6.23

Coupons Used
2 x $2/1 Tresemme ManuQ=$4.00
1 x .75¢/1 Colgate mouthwash IPQ=$.75
1 x $2/1 Aleve item IPQ=$2.00
1 x $1/1 Aleve VideoValuesQ=$1.00
1 x $6.99/1 Mucinex tea In-AdQ=$6.99
Coupon Total.....$14.74

I used $6 in +Up Rewards and paid .89¢ OOP.
I received back $7 in new +Up Rewards($3 wyb2 Tresemme, $2 Colgate, $2 Aleve PM)

The 50% off Tresemme combined with the Qs and the +Up Reward it gives back this week means FREE 'Poo! 8-)

This means instead of going into BF sales I have $19 in +Ups, not $18 in +Ups.

BUT--I remembered that I have a deal in my Savingstar account......Spend $25 on Bayer Products and get $5 cash back.

The Aleve PM is a qualifying product so I have $10.86 toward $25 spent.

The 2 Alka-Seltzer cold meds I bought at Target Saturday also qualify. 
So I am attempting to go through their "send them a photo of your receipt and UPCs" Feature on Savingstar to send those purchases and if it works, I'll have $20.24 toward that $5 rebate.

In this case, I'll be going back to Rite-Aid this week to buy one more bottle of Aleve PM.
After +Ups and Qs this last bottle will "cost" me either $1.43(if bought alone) or .67¢(if bought with another Mucinex tea). 
Either way after all is spent and +Ups and $5 Target gift card and Qs I'll be out $3.81 or less.....BUT after the $5 Rebate on Savingstar I'll be in a moneymaker situation of $2-$3 for all 5 items. 
Yay me!

Just working all the angles I can to get the most bang for my bucks.....



  1. I have been working more of the angles lately. I mean, if you cannot wash your hair or dishes, just play with the drug stores.

    Thanks for the gofundme help. It is slowly getting there.

  2. Wait! I thought you got rinse and Aleve PM last time! Be careful with them pills and don't knock yourself out!

    Peace <3
