My Trip to Rite Aid 2/10

IMG-20130210-01049YAY, my Wellness card did not freeze the registers…after unclipping some of those L2C coupons! I need to go back to doing smaller transactions b/c when I see final price before coupons, it makes me nervous. Anyways, everything went well except for the Gillette deal wyb $30 get $10+Up. I had more then enough product to produce the $10+Up but it didn’t print. After I pointed this out to the manager, she put $10 on a Rite Aid Gift Card and she always says “This Money Card is better then a +Up b/c it never expires.” ๐Ÿ™‚

I took just one pic for my Rite Aid and CVS trips b/c all that Tresemme was heavy to move around. I will taking the Tresemme to work an put it in the Breakroom and it will be gone.

+Ups Earned = $61 – (4) $3 Colgate, (4) $2 Edge, (2) $2 Tresemme, (2) $1 Sucrets, $5 Banana Boat, $20 RA50 and a $10 RA Gift Card for Gillette

Notes: I had a really long receipt and I hope can remember everything. The manager put in all of the BOGO coupons manually. The $1.50 Sucrets coupon scanned for $1 off but I pointed to the mgr that the coupon said $1.50 so she manually entered those coupons. The BOGO Gillette coupon says “get the Gillette Fusion Shave Gel for FREE” not the Proseries. The Gillette Shave Gels and the Banana Boat were more expensive at my store. I threw in the bobby pins b/c I had never seen this type before and they were the last ones on the peg so I snatched them up! I have not clue what I bought to generate the $20 RA50 but I am happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My total at RA was over $100 as well and when you are paying just with coupons that can make one sweat a little!

      It’s nerve racking when you do one big transaction.

    Hi Roz,
    what coupons did you use for the NM minies? I had (2) $3 off minis IP but they accepted only one of them because of the BOGO.They also count toward the promo.
    I also stress out a lot when using a big bunch of coupons. My mom did accompany me to RA the last couple of weeks and started questioning me is it worth all the stress, especially when faced with all that negativism and suspicious about using coupons and paying a liitle oop….

      Ops, sorry, I didn’t see your older post that the minis are from CVS.

      Awe, your mom sounds sweet! My youngest brother thinks it’s “stealing” to use coupons when I have saved a bunch of money. ๐Ÿ™‚
