My Trip to Rite Aid…

As soon as, I sat down to right this post and looked at my RA receipt, I knew that I had screwed up! LOL  I put 2 MIRs on the same receipt.  That was me being lazy b/c I didn’t want to do 2 transactions nor do 2 trips.  Oh well, I guess I’ll have do a “return and re-buy”…and still end up making another trip back to Rite Aid! 

I got to the RA and went looking for the $1 Rolaids…they were clean wiped out them.  Rats.  Last week, when I did the Covergirl LashBlast, I forgot to bring my $2 RA Covergirl (from their P&G booklet) so I wanted to use that Q before it expires on 7/31/10. And I did the exact same transaction as last week but added the $2 Q.

Because I couldn’t find the $1 Rolaids, I kinda swapped the Rolaids and inserted the Dickinsons so my OOP is a bit higher.

Here is my gets at Rite Aid:

Bought 1 Covergirl LashBlast Fusion $7.99
Bought 1 Covergirl Eye Enhancer $2.71
Bought 2 Oreos Single Serve BOGO $1.19
Bought 2 Nivea for Men Body Wash $3.98
Bought 1 Bliss Bagged Candy $2.99
Bought 1 Colgate Total $2.95
Bought 1 Secret Soothing Effects 1.6oz $4.99
Bought 1 Dickinson’s Witch Hazel $3.99
Bought 1 Tums $1

Total = $31.79

Used -$5/$25
Used -$1 Covergirl (P&G 7/4)
Used -$2 RA Covergirl (RA P&G Booklet no longer available)
Used -$3.39 BOGO Covergril (P&G 7/4)
Used -$1/$10 Wellness Beauty or Fragrance Printable
Used -$1/2 Nabisco August Adperk Q
Used -$4/2 Nivea Printable
Used -$1 Bliss (SS 4/25 exp 7/25)
Used -$1 Bliss July Adperk Q
Used -$1 Colgate (SS 7/11)
Used -$2 Secret Soothing Effects (P&G 6/6 exp 7/31)
Used -$7 in +Up Rewards

Total = $2.40

SCRs Earned = $2 Secret and SCR# 564 FREE Glam Camp Bag

+ Up Rewards Earned = $6 ($1 Bliss, (2) $1 Nivea, $3 Colgate)

 MIRs Earned = $10 P&G MIR and $3.99 Dickinson’s TMF MIR

Profit = $12.59

Notes:  Even though, I have the Dickinson’s & Covergirl on the same receipt, I’m still taking the profit since I’ll do a simple “return & re-buy”.  Although, we no longer have the $5/$20 there is still money to be made!  This time the cashier took off $3.39 for the CG BOGO Q…thank goodness, he didn’t take off $7.99 like last time or I really would have needed at least $5 worth of fillers! LOL

    I went to Rite Aid today, to use the oral $1/$10 coupon before it expired tonight, and since we had a bad storm run though, many streets had no power at the lights, and it took me a long scary ride to get to the store only to find they had no power too and were shut down. I did not know this, as my house had power, even though the nearest street light did not. Anyways… would Rite Aid extend one of their coupons because of this? I doubt it. Gah.

    DMC, did you know that Rite Aid take post coupons…which means expires! You have to ask and especially since the store was closed due to a power outtage, I would definitely call over there and ask!!!!!!!!!!

    Really… they will take expired? Just their coupons or all? By a day or two or way more? I did not know this about Rite Aid, and only knew CVS took expired EBs from only when I spoke with a manager at the store about throwing an old expired one away a long time ago and he said they would still take it. I was new to it all and mad that I let it expire.

    Should I just see if it will scan or do you think it will beep?

    I went to Rite Aid yesterday and had the nicest cashier! My sub-total was $25.43 and I ended up paying $3.08. Awesome! I did buy multipe Nivea men's body wash in the same transaction and an Up Reward printed for every single bottle I bought. I wasn't expecting that. I got back $13 in Up Rewards. Amazing!

    Oh yes, thanks for giving a head up on the Eco Tools coupon a few weeks ago. I sent in 2 make up brushes two weeks ago and their turn around was amazing! I got my coupons on Saturday! Thanks again!
