My Trip to Rite Aid…

Yesterday, I was laughing at myself b/c I kinda screwed up on my Rite Aid trip.  I knew that I was suppose get the Sauve Professional…but there was a lady standing there trying to decide which shampoo to get and I got impatient and just grabbed a Sauve shampoo and conditoner…not realizing that I had gotten the Sauve Naturals which did not generate a $1 +Up.  Oh but I really screwed b/c I also bought the wrong Febreze…but it all kinda worked out when you see my senario b/c I had overage from the FREE Sauve coupon!

I actually ran over to Rite Aid b/c I realized that I still had a $3 Motrin +Up Rewards that is gonna expire 7/10.  I didn’t even realized that even had a $3 Motrin +Up left in my stash.  So, I kinda made up a senario on-the-go…I couldn’t think of a way to reach $5/$20 let alone $5/$25.

Here are my gets at Rite Aid:

Bought 1 Diet Coke 20oz $1.32 (including CRV)
Bought 2 Sauve Naturals 22.5oz $3.50
Bought 1 Febreze Refresher w/bonus $4.79
Bought 1 Febreze Air Effects $2.49
Bought 1 Crest w/Scope Toothpaste 4oz $2.69

Total = $14.79

Used (2) -$3 Sauve (mailer, maybe Facebook?)
Used -$2.49 BOGO Febreze (P&G 7/4)
Used -$1 Crest w/Scope Toothpaste 4oz (maybe from the Crest Whitestrips box?)
Used -$5 in +Up Rewards

Total after coupons and +Ups used = .30 cents

SCRs Earned = $3.69 ($1 Febreze, $2.69 Crest)

Cost = $1.61

Notes:  I learned earlier that the FREE Sauve Q takes off $3 automatically when scanned!!!!!!!!!!!!  If I would have bought the correct products, I would have made a small profit but it is what it is.  But whenever I can flip the +Up into SCRs is all good in the hood.  On Sunday, I plan to do the Neutrogena MIR since that when the rebate period starts on that one.

    I did a blunder on Re-Nu (the deal lasted on 10th Jul), instead of buying Sensitive I bought Refresh and paid more. Do you think still I will be eligible for SC?

    Mamta, when you realized that you have bought the wrong product (I've done this before, too), it's best to do what is called a "return and re-buy". Just tell the cashier that you bought the wrong item for the SCR…and the cashier should have to no problem doing this transaction.

    If it is too late to do so…just return it and get your money back.

    I went at the last minute and the store was suppose to close, so I grabbed without seeing the proper one. I will go and return it. Thanks for your advice.
