Today’s Trip to Rite Aid…

If you hitting the freeways this morning in San Diego they are gonna be messed up!  I saw that they had shut down the 163 exit and the 5 exit off going down the I-8.

Anyways, I arrived at Rite around 8:30 this morning.  Normally, I like to stroll around to see if I find any bargains or see anything on clearance.  I did pick up a couple of packs of cottonballs b/c now that the weather is warmer…my face is always shiny so I have been using that Sea Breeze to get of any excess dirt off of my face!

I got everything that I wanted on my list and I plan to make just one more Rite Aid trip and then I will be done with Rite Aid…until the next sales ad comes out.

Here are my gets at Rite Aid:

Bought 2 RA Cotton Balls 300ct $2.86
Bought 2 Old Spice Red Zone Deo $7
Bought 1 Rembrandt Toothpaste $6.39
Bought 1 John Frieda Roots Awakening Hair Spray $4.99
Bought 1 Pampers Wipes 72ct $2.49

Total = $23.73

Used -$5/$20
Used -$3.50 Old Spice BOGO Q (P&G 5/2)
Used -$3 Rembrandt Printable
Used -$3 Rembrandt June Adperk Q
Used -$3 John Frieda Roots Awkening (SS 6/6)
Used -$2 Pampers Wipes (P&G 6/6)

Total after coupons used = $4.23

SCR Earned = $1 John Frieda

MIR Earned = $10 American Express Gift Card for Listerine or Rembrandt Mail in Rebate

+Ups Rewards Earned = $4 (Red Zone Deo wyb 2)

Profit = $10.77

Notes:  The reason I keep buying the Red Zone Deo is b/c I get a $4 +Up Reward and it goes towards the P&G SCR wyb $25 get $5 gift card.  So, I am buying 2 each time and will do so until I get 8 of them. 

2 * $3.50 = $7 Red Zone Deo
$7 * 4  transactions = $28 qualifies for P&G SCR
4 transactions * $4+Ups Rewards = $16 +Ups Rewards

I paid .39 cents for the Rembrandt and I qualify for the $10 American Express Gift Card.

    Are you using your $4 +Up rewards? Can you use them on top of all the other coupons, including $5/$25?

    Do you know if these roll into each other? Use one on a transaction buying more red zone and get another? Thanks.

    The +Ups Rewards are more like the CVS Extra Bucks in that they do roll.

    I am saving my +Ups Rewards for next week's deals.

    ok, thanks. I actually don't shop at CVS b/c I don't have one nearby but I think I get it now.

    I looked through my 5-2 PG and cannot find the Red Zone BOGO Coupon. I think I am going to have to use the $1/2 coupon instead. 🙁 There was only a Fresh Collection or body wash bogo. And the body wash bogo is buy body wash get fresh collection free, lol. Something like that. Bummer.

    Felicia, you are correct about the P&G 5/2 insert on the BOGO. I accidentally handed the cashier the coupon and she just entered the amount of $3.50 for the Red Zone w/o readying the Q. I know that I am pushing my luck but I handed her another 5/2 BOGO again today and she pushed it through. The coupon beeps for the price and not which Old Spice deo you are buying.

    However, I did buy the Old Spice Freshness and got the $2 SCR.

    if you read the BOGO one says deo or body wash get free deo sooo the coupon its correct. Some do say only body wash.

  • MsBuildingUpDaBenjamins June 8, 2010, 03:54

    It's a strange coupon if you ask me. They should just say buy deo get deo FREE. Then have another Q that says buy BW get BW FREE. Plain & simple. LOL
