My Trip to Rite Aid

1This week, I feel like I am racing against a clock since I know I will have return to work on Thursday.  My purpose with this particular transaction is to build up my Wellness Points for 2013 and to spend some of profits on things I wanted and needed. I only had one coupon with me and that was the $4 Physicians Formula.

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

Bought 1 Coke 12pk $5.39 (incl CRV)
Bought 2 Ziploc Bags $4
Bought 1 Dixie Grab N Go Cups 14ct $3.03
Bought 2 Dixie Plates 20ct $6.86
Bought 1 Bounty Paper Towel 1ct $.99
Bought 1 Physicians Formula Eyeliner $5.56
Bought 3 Artskills Permanent Black Markers 1ct $4.29
Bought 9 Pentel Mechanical Pens 7MM or 9MM $35.91

Total = $66.03

Used -$1/2 Ziploc L2C
Used -$4/1 RA Physicians Formula Printable
Used -$60 in +Up Rewards

Total after coupons used = $1.03

+Ups Earned = $42 – $3 Dixie, $1 Ziploc, (3) $2 Artskills and (9) $4 Pentel

Notes: I got a catalina for a FREE Breath Right up to $7.49 and  $3 L’Oreal Excellence!  I could have turn right around and bought a Breath Right and submitted for the $2 SCR but I have a feeling that catalina will serve a better purpose in the future.

I LOVEEEEEEEE doing transactions like this b/c I got the stuff that I wanted or needed spending less than $7 out of pocket (including tax)! All of those pens were FREE after +Ups and there’s no limit (yet) on the mechanical pencils. As far as, I am concern, I saved myself $25 in which I did not have to spend out of my own pocket. Dang, Coke is allot of money when it’s not on sale. 🙁

      It’s for buying $10 worth of Dixie items.

    I thought the Dixie plates were BOGO? I saw a BOGO tag on an end cap for the plates ($3.99 I believe)..I didn’t check the date of the tag though so it could’ve been old and not removed yet. If I see it again I’ll let you know

      The Dixie wasn’t tagged at my store as being on BOGO and I didn’t see it in the ad.
