My Trip to Rite Aid…

I headed over to Rite Aid this morning and there hardly a soul in the store.  I think most folks kinda slept in b/c of the nice cool weather this morning.  I actually live in the city of San Diego and just in the city of San Diego, there are 1.7 million people here.  I live about 10 min from downtown, maybe about 15 min from the beaches and I am about 20-25 min North of the Mexican border.  I am also about 2 hrs South of Los Angeles and it takes me about 7-8 hrs to drive up North to Sacramento, where I grew up.

Anyways, I tried to do a price check for the Colonaide All Natural Internal Cleansing Kit to see if the $22.99 was gonna be the sales price or is this the regular price to figure out if my 20% discount was gonna apply. But I couldn’t find it.

I found only lonely box of the Neutrogena Clinical and I grabbed it up!

Here are my gets at Rite Aid:

Bought 1 Neutrogena Clinical Facial Lifting Wrinkle Treatment SPF 30 $31.99
Used -$5/$25
Used -$5 Neutrogena Clinical Printable
Used -$1/$10 Beauty or Cosmetics Printable

Total after coupons used = $20.99

+Up Rewards Earned = $2 +Up

MIR Earned = $31.99 Neutrogena TRY ME FREE MIR

SCR Earned = $10 Skin Care SCR gift card or $31.99 towards the $25 Skin Care SCR gift card

Notes:  Dab Nabit, I forgot that the RA Wellness card that they sent me was already pre-loaded with a 20% discount.  Now, I gotta get another $18.01 towards the Skin Care SCR.  Good grief, it seems like every since the month of July came all of my $5/20’s and $5/$25 Qs won’t scan.  The $5 Neutro scanned without any problems but the $/$$ coupons including the $1/$10 wouldn’t scan so the mgr had to do an approval. 

Anyone else having this problem or is it just me???

    I am not understanding the loaded 20% discount. What is that for?

    Today when I bought the Neutrogena Clinical it rang up at 10% off at 34.99, and I have no idea why.

    Girlfriend, you got the 10% Wellness discount that's why your Neutro Clinical rang as it did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    San Diego was one of the original test cities for the Wellness Program. So, when they Wellness Program went national, RA sent everyone new Wellness Cards. I was one of the ppl that they sent a Wellness card to that was already pre-loaded with a 20% discount on the card. Some ppl were Wellness cards that were pre-loaded with a discount and it was kinda an arbitrary thing.

    When lost all my loyality cards in the fire. I was using my phone number but one day when I was cleaning out my car, I found my old Wellness card. In the meantime, the Wellness Program went nationwide and they had sent me another one and I had put my new Wellness Card to the side since I had found my old card.

    Very confusing I know.

    Congratulation on obtaining the 10% discount!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll have to write a post about the discounts.

    I bought Neutrogena at two different places. One at Rite Aid for $39.99 (I used $5/$25 and $5 printable coupon) and one more at Walgreens for $34.99 (they already have $5 off on that and I used $5 printable coupon and lots of RRs). When I submit this for the rebate, will they reimburse the original retail price or after the coupon price?

    I though the 10% off with the cardw as only on Rite Aid brand items. I bought toothpaste and some other items with my card the same day and did not get 10% off of those items. So I am very confused as to what gets the extra discount and what does not.

    Also, they send me that special shopping pass coupon, and I am not sure how to work that. Has anyone used theirs yet?
