Rite-Aid Porn This Week

Here is what I purchased at Rite-Aid over the last two days.

I would have bought it all in one big transaction but P&G has gotten snippy about using their coupons.  Check out the wording on them some time.  They use to say "limit of 4 identical/like Qs in one transaction".  Now it's "limit of two or ONE identical/like Qs per day per household" or something to that effect.
What?!?

Anyway, it's not that the Qs beep or anything if you try to use more than the limit stated on the Q.
It's just that the cashier may limit you if they are a stickler for reading every single line on every single Q you try to redeem.

So I had to do two transactions over the course of Sunday and Monday.
Sigh.....

I have discovered that everybody here(except me)wants to use Head and Shoulders or some other dandruff type shampoo(also my eldest and his finacée too and I supply them with 'poo sometimes as well).
Sigh.  So I have been on a quest to find it for cheap.
We also can use dish soap if it's cheap.
Daughter also wanted me to find her some "feminine needs" for cheap.

I paired all these wants/needs with a P&G Plenti Offer this week of "Spend $30, Get $15 Back in PPs"(limit of 4 Offers per card). * I think this Deal is a July monthly one, not a weekly one so maybe there will be good ways in which to utilize it later on in the month too.*



10 x Head & Shoulders 'Poo cheaper w/20% Wellness disc. than sale price($5.99)=$59.90
4 x Pantene 'Poo cheaper w/20% Wellness disc. than sale price($3.99)=$15.96

1 x $2/1 Colgate toothpaste In-AdQ=$2.00
1 x .25¢/1 Dawn Load2CardQ=.25¢
Coupon Total.......$41.25

$94.79-$41.25=$53.54

Except on the first transaction I did on Sunday a $2/1 Load2CardQ also came off too(I think it was for 1 of the bottles of Head & Shoulders)so I had $43.25 in Qs come off.

$94.79-$43.25=$51.54 + $2.74tax=$54.28.

I paid in Plenti Points and earned back $45 in new PPs.
$54.28-$45PPs=$9.28 OOP in Points.

Or $9.28 divided by the 21 items I purchased means I "paid" .44¢ per item.

"Paid" because no money changed hands and I "spent down" $9.28 in Plenti points.

That's my kind of shopping! '-)

  1. See? You are in retirement and still up to your money-saving tricks. I have heard that dandruff shampoo actually makes dandruff worse. I don't know, but I never have dandruff. I have used some coupons that are starting to have restrictions that were never there before. Also, the coupons in the paper have a very short life!

  2. I called and complained about no tide coupons in the newspaper. I buy the paper, why do I have to go online and get one tide coupon? If it didn't work so well in my hard water and for my dh's skin, I would stop buying it. Cheryl
