My Trip to Rite Aid

I decided against going to CVS b/c I wanted to wait until Thursday to see if I get a 20% CVS Coupon. As soon as I walked into Rite Aid, I headed straight for the Almay Cosmetics and thankfully, the 75% clearance tags were up so I had no problems, grabbing what I wanted!

Here are my gets at Rite Aid: (I have a 20% discount)

Bought 2 Pop Tarts $4.78
Bought 2 Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes Cereal $5
Bought 1 Visine for Contacts $4.23
Bought 2 Ricola $3

Bought 1 Almay Almay Smart Shade Anti-Aging Concealer $2.24

Total after coupons used = $2.97

SCRs Earned = $12 – (6) $2 Almay SCR #5

+Ups Earned = $9 – $2 Cereal, $2 Pop Tarts, $2 Visine and (3) $1 Ricola

Notes: As soon as I heard about the 75% clearance Almay, I knew that I was gonna track it down. Since I had shopped at one Rite Aid on Saturday and didn’t see the Almay tagged on Sunday, I hit another store and it was tagged! It was pure luck. The Pop Tarts rang up at $2.39 with my Gold discount. I thought the concealer was part of an SCR but it was not and I am not returning it since was a bit of a Money Maker with the $2 MFQ and $2 VV.

I screwed up on the Ricola, I thought I had gotten 2 of the Ricola Dual Action Cough Drops and I wondered why the second $.75 Ricola coupon beeped but the cashier just pushed it through.  I wasn’t until I got home that I realized that I picked up two different Ricola cough drops.

Now, about the $2 Visine In-Ad Coupon. To the naked eye, it appears that the Visine In-Ad Coupon is a manufacturer coupon b/c it begins with a “5”. However, Rite Aid has that In-Ad Coupon coded as a regular Rite Aid coupon and that’s the reason, I was able to use a $1 MFQ and the $2 In-Ad coupon without coupons beeping.
