My Trip to Rite Aid…

Now, that I feel like my old self, I was ready to plot and plan my Rite Aid trip after work!  I wanted to get the Nature Made and that FREE magazine offer.  Also, I needed to finish off the Pilot Precise and the GE lightbulb SCRs.  Of course, I was going to use the C. Booth as a filler.

As soon as I walked into RA, I began looking for the C. Booth.  It didn’t take me long and I found it right away.  I found it where they sell the Pure & Natural Products over on a special display where they sell the higher end body products.  It was cheaper than I thought.  I grabbed two off the shelf and found everything else on my list.

Here are my gets at Rite Aid:

Bought 1 C. Booth Original Bath & Body Oil 16oz $4.79
Bought 1 C. Booth Honey & Almond Body Butter 8oz $4.79

Total after coupons used = .55 cents

SCRs Earned = $8 ($2 CB, $2 CB, $2 GE, $2 Pilot)

$10.39 towards Nature Made FREE Magazine and $10.39 towards Vitamins SCR.

Profit = $7.45

Notes:  I went through my receipt TWICE and the mgr just got scan and manually entering coupons happy, I had (2) imaginary $2 Qs and a $1 imaginary Q that appears on my receipt.  The C. Booth was less expensive than I had anticipated so I knew my OOP would be lower but I just assumed that something rang up cheaper than expected or was on clearance at this store.  It wasn’t until I came home and sat down to really go over my notes and my receipt that I realized that he’d did what he did.

I had a problem with the $1/$10 Vitamins Q not scanning and then the $2 Nature Made Adperk Q, I guess he did not see that the Q’s had taken on his screen so he manually entered them into the registers.  I was expecting to have a $5 and some change out of pocket.

None of my other coupons beeped.  I have been getting the Rolaids for my co-workers at work! LOL  Someone is always looking for Rolaids or Tums at work.

    Just FYI, Rite Aid accepted the NM Sleep for the Vitamin rebate, but not for the Woman's Day subscription. Whatever. I get so sick of this stuff. It's like every Nature Made product qualifies… EXCEPT the Sleep one. WTF?

    How odd that the Sleep doesn't qualify. I'll give them a call, too.
