My Trip to Rite Aid

IMG-20121215-00965Today, I went to the Rite Aid in Hillcrest to see if they had any of the Pretty Woman artificial nails tagged for clearance…they did not.

Notes: I lost almost $2 in this transaction BUT I am getting back $5.25 in cash so it’s all good. I love being able to roll store rewards in cash! 🙂

By the way, I have already earned the money from Ibotta and I transferred the money to my Paypal account!!!  You have to have a minimum of $5 in your Ibotta account to move the funds to Paypal.

    Is the price for People Magazine 3.19 instead of 3.99?

      Eric you might be right but I had lost my receipt! My +Ups are loaded to my card and I did allot shopping for Xmas gifts besides the Rite Aid/CVS shopping and I could not find that receipt so I did the post from my memory!

    My L2C for the magazine didn’t come off and when I called they said they had a lot of calls about it, so you might want to double check that it came off yours too.

      I didn’t use the $2 paper coupon and that’s why the L2C came off for me.

    I learned recently that Ibotta is not compatible with my ipod touch 4th gen, ipod touch 3G and ipad because these apple products don’t have a barcode scanner which is needed for rite aid, ralph’s, von’s and cvs. Maybe in the future I could get an itouch 5G, if it does have a barcode scanner for now I’ll make the best of what I have.

      I have the ipad 3 3rd generation and you do have to scan the product bar code with ibotta. The ipad 3 is my first Apple product so I assumed that all Apple products came with this scanning capability. Thanks for letting me know that not all ipads can scan bar codes, I got my ipad refurbished like 2 months ago
