My Trip to Rite Aid…

As you may or may not know, I am a procrastinator and disorganized!  Although, I can think up a senario in a heartbeat, I don’t actually cut out my coupons until I am ready to go do a deal.  Therefore, it took me forever, to cut out coupons and match them up to the senarios that I had planned.

The only items that were not in stock were the Motrin PM 20ct and the Cryostat.  So, improvised a little with that transaction.  I did 4 back-to-back transactions, I asked the cashier before she rang me up.

Because I did 4 transactions, I gonna combine my “gets” at Rite Aid:

Bought 2 Covergirl Eye Shadow Enhancers $5.42
Bought 2 Covergirl LashBlast Fusion $15.98
Bought 1 Colonaide $22.99
Bought 2 Zegerids 14ct $20
Bought 1 Cottonelle $6.99
Bought 1 Diet Coke 20oz $1.32
Bought 1 Traditional Medicines Smooth Move $3.69
Bought 2 Garnier Nutritioniste Nutri-Pur Face Scrub $10.06
Bought 1 Baush & Lomb BioTrue $3.99
Bought 1 Dulcolax Balance 8.3oz $9.99

Total = $100.43

Used (4) -$5/$20
Used (2) -$1 any Covergirl (P&G 7/4)
Used (2) -$7.98 BOGO Covergirl (P&G 7/4)
Used (2) -$4 Zegerid (SS 6/20)
Used (2) -$3 In-Ad Zegerid Q
Used -$2 Smooth Move Printable
Used (2) -$5 In-Ad Garnier
Used -$2 Baush & Lomb Biotrue Printable
Used -$5 Dulcolax (All You Magazine May Issue)
Used -$3 Pain Relief CRT
Used -$1 Wellness Beauty or Cosmetics Printable
Used -$21 in +Up Rewards

Total after coupons and +Up Rewards = $4.45

SCRs Earned = $45.67

+ Up Rewards Earned = $17 +Up Rewards

MIR Earned = $5 Dulcolax Balance MIR (Extended to September 2010)

$21.40 towards the $10 P&G MIR

Profit = $42.22

Update to my Notes since there is allot of confusion about there being limits on the +Up Rewards.  I did 2 separate transactions with the Zegerid and I got (2) $7 +Up and I did 1 Garnier and I got (1) $3 +Up.

Notes:  Believe it or not it took me about 30 min in total to do the shopping and 4 transactions.  A couple of my transactions, I came up in the negative and paid just the tax.  I started running out of +Up Rewards so I was tearing them off the bottom of my receipt and used towards the purchase like on the Cottonelle toilette paper.  The cashier read the Covergirl BOGO Q and took off $7.99 each which was good for me since I couldn’t find the $2 Covergirl Qs in my stash and had to use the $1 CG Q.  Also, I forgot to bring my $2 RA P&G coupon, too.  I ended up paying just tax on that transaction.

All in all, a good Rite Aid trip when you get a $100 worth of merchandise for $4.45 and still make $42.22 in profit!!!!!!!!!

    I did get the Ups each time. I'll update my post to reflect that. I only did 2 transactions of the Zegerid and 1 of the Garnier.

    I did the Zegrid two separate transactions and only got the +UP on the first one. I didn't want to make a fuss in the store though, because I used $10 in coupons (In ad, video value, and manfuacturer) and got it free anyways. I was looking to make it a $7 money maker twice, but I guess I shouldn't be greedy. It evens out I guess too, as I was owed that $12 +UP that got voided, and the customer service sent me a $12 gift card, and even though I let the District Manager know that they were sending it to me, he sent me another as well. I just wish I knew what the limits are though.
