Dickinson’s Witch Hazel…

Be on the lookout for Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel at Rite Aid with the Try Me Free (TMF) hangtag.  This makes an excellent filler item b/c you can submit it for a TMF Mail in Rebate.

    One store had no rebates on the bottle, but another store had two of them. I was using one of the tips you or another blogger posted about talking to the employees about couponing and getting good deals and one employee was stocking the floor right next to the item and I showed him what a great deal it was, because it was free. He said WOW, and was really impressed.

    Then I showed him the coffee maker deal for $5.99 and he said WOW to that too, and said he had gotten a coffee maker at Rite Aid last year and paid $12.99 and thought that was a deal. So he said he needed a coffee grinder and I told him that would also be $5.99 after the +UP and SCR. :) So I got him to understand how us couponers/"deal workers" think.

    When I went to check out, he was at the register, so I went to him. My total was about $63 and I used $34 worth coupons. For some items I had one MFC and one Rite Aid coupon and he didn't understand if he could take two for one item, so I took out the coupon policy and read it to him and then he understood and nothing was a problem. When one MFC coupon beeped after he scanned the RA coupon first (I probably should have put it in opposite order), and it said I didn't have the item when I did, he let me show him a trick the other store did when that happened, and basically took it off and then re-rang it, and then the coupon was accepted. :)

    Anyways… he was shocked when it went from $63 to $29, and then $15 in +UP came out at the end. And he knew that I was getting the Dickinsons rebate, and also putting in for SRC's too. He was so shocked but smiling, so I guess he was happy for me and learned/understood why we do all of this work. :)

    Oh… also a question. The Dickinson rebate asks for UPC code, but it's practically glued onto the bottle. How did you get yours off? For now I am trying to soak it in some water, and hope it works without disintegrating the paper.

    I suspect that you don't really need the UPC label. I haven't done the rebate yet.

    I'm gonna send them an inquiry to see what they say about this.

    I actually re-read the requirement and it just says " UPC code from Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Product" I am interpreting that to mean to put the UPC code on an index card or a piece of paper and send that in along with the receipt and the hangtag.

    That's what I plan to do. LOL

    DMC, chatting it up with the cashier is a good thing b/c you develope a relationship with the cashier and they can give you little tips about the store and the merchandise.

    $63 worth of merchandise for $14 bucks plus you get the SCR you did great!!!!!!!!!!!

    After soaking the witch hazel bottle on water for a few hours, the label still was really firm, but I used a pair of tweezers and lifted up the corner and then was able to peel up enough to cut out the UPC. It's a super plastic like label, and not like paper at all, but it is really glued on there. Since having the problem with the Olay UPC code, I decided I would just try to send this one in. The rebate didn't say they needed the original, but it also didn't say to write it down either. Saying they need the code was really not enough information as to HOW they wanted it. That's like saying you need a receipt, but not clarifying that you need to send the original and not a copy.

    One store that I like, the cashiers know me and know I coupon and combine sales and rite aid coupons with MFC and they never give me a hard time. Yesterday I saw a woman at the cashier with an iron, and the cashier told her it was $19.99. She thought that was too much an went to put it back. I asked her if she knew about the SCR, and she did not. So I grabbed a booklette by the door and showed her that there was $2 back for it. Soooo, if she needed it now, she would at least get $2 back, but if she could wait, it would likely go on sale this month and she might get it for even less (like the coffee maker was on sale with +UP and SCR).

    As I was explaining it to her, the cashiers were smiling and said for her to listen to me, because I knew what I was doing! :Þ The woman THANKED me and said she never even heard about the SCR's. So I did the customer and the company a favor by explaining it to her, because now she just may buy that iron from them and not from another store, and she may also now start to buy more from them too. :)

    This is why Rite Aid should treat us couponers well. We SPREAD THE WORD and get more people to buy from them. Not only that, I have tried brands I never would have tried before because of these deals, and I am already telling my friends about a few amazing ones that I love. Which again… means more sales if my friends buy these products too. It's a win-win for all of us. That is why we should be appreciated. :)

    I was at Rite Aid a couple of days ago and there was a young couple at the register and the cashier asked them if they had an RA card. The couple said no and when the cashier was about to give them one, the couple refused the card. I guess they have way too much money to actually save to money with a loyalty card. Although, they were not dressed as such! LOL

    DMC, thank goodness you were able to get that darn UPC code off of the bottle. Yeah, I could see you being gun shy with what happened with the Olay MIR.
