My Trip to Rite Aid…

After getting the paper this morning, I gathered up my coupons and then cut some out of the paper.  It actually feels like an early Fall day instead of like a typical hot August day.  At least in my part of the city, it is slightly overcast and windy but warm.

I went to Rite Aid and soon as I got out of my care, I realized that I had forgotten my planned senario list at home!  Ugggg.  I was gonna have to remember my 2 senarios from looking at the coupons AND I had planned to do back-to-back transactions!  Yep, I already knew that I was gonna be in trouble…LOL

I’m gonna list the items I bought as one big transaction instead of two and let me say that I had a higher OOP in my first transaction and I immediately returned the Olay Pro-V Cleanser and got ALL my money back, although, I used a $5 coupon on it without any problems.

Here are my gets at Rite Aid:

Bought 1 Box of Envelops 45ct $2.71
Bought 1 Olay Regenerist Pore Scrub $7.99
Bought 1 Bengay Massage $6.39
Bought 3 Pilot Pens $3

Bought 1 Gillette Venus Embrace 3ct $7.99
Bought 1 Dickinson’s Witch Hazel $3.99
Bought 1 Secret Soothing Effects $4.99
Bought 2 Crest Rinse 1 liter $10
Bought 1 Venus Spa Breeze Razor $7.59

Total = $63.44

MIRs Earned = $1.25 Pilot (MIR on back of box)

$7.99 towards Olay MIR

Cost = $3.19

Notes:  This transaction if I had not bought the envelopes would have cost .48 cents…but I needed envelopes!  So, I kinda broke even if you subtract the envelopes but I’m still kinda kicking myself for leaving my plans at home.  Also, I got greedy b/c I bought another Dickinson’s to do another rebate…and this was not part of my original senario, as well as, the Secret Soothing Effects was not part of my original planned senarios.  But both items were re-stocked and I grabbed them. 

On some specially marked Secret Clinical Deos there are $15 worth of P&G coupons inside the box so be on the lookout for that. 

Also, the $5/$25 wouldn’t scan nor my $1 Bengay but the cashier pushed them through!  I got a Venus in each transaction and a +Ups printed for each.

    I am done with the RA Gift card deal (buy $25 worth and get $10 GC). Can I submit that right away?

    mamta, go ahead and request your gift card ASAP! LOL

    I requested my gc as soon as I knew that it cleared my SCR acct.
