1I posted this a couple days ago but I wanted to ensure that everyone saw it again just in case you forgot! 🙂  I also added the $2/1 any L’Oreal Paris Item Load2Card to the scenario since it did come off for me a couple of weeks ago.  Those with Gold Status, you will need something else in your transaction to absorb the overage…not a bad problem to have, huh? 🙂

Starting on Sunday (1/20), Rite Aid will have a $5/1 In-Ad Coupon for L’Oreal Skincare which is perfect for the L’Oreal Revitalift, Youth Code or Age Perfect Rebate wyb $30 get a $10 Rebate (must be in (1) once transaction)!

Normally, there are only 3 to 4 skincare cleanser on the shelf and this will definitely depend on if your store will accept multiple In-Ad coupons in a single transaction (YMMV).

    Hi. I have forwarded this page to Rite Aid corporate. The fact is, the in ad coupons state limit one per customer. Just because a cashier accepts more doesn’t make it right. As a blogger, you have a responsibility to promote ethical couponing. However, it’s people like you who ruin it for the rest of us.

      Melissa some of us who dont have 10 kids n are too fat and lazy that get government assistance like yourself try to survive by the best way we can. Ask yourself how much money couponers bring in to these overpriced drug stores with the help of manufacturer coupons. Its amazing the amount of things that are wrong in this world and u have people like yourself that try to bring others down for your self enjoyment. Cheer up the first of the month is near where you can fill up three carts full of groceries and swipe that magic card you use that brings your grocery bill to zero without using coupons.

        Marc, the thing that Melissa does not get is that most stores accept multiple in-ad coupons. Multiple in-ad coupon use, is a fact for most of us and why not write a scenario exploiting that fact. I see nothing wrong with using one or multiple in-ad coupons. Obviously, the store and manufacturers would love for consumers to pay full price for everything…and we would be in the Poor House doing so.

          Thank you for clarifying this! I am always nervous to try to use more than 1 in ad coupon. Some of my cashiers are more strict than others but I never understood how keeping product on their shelves vs moving it helps the store, the manu or the consumer? Seems like SELLING IT is all good, right??

          I allow the store/cashier to determine how many coupons they will allow me to use and if they limit it I can cancel my purchase and/or take my business elsewhere.

          I absolutely LOVE your blog and your attitude!!! Thank you!!!

            Thank you for the support! 🙂

      Melissa,

      Clearly your store does not allow the use of multiple in ad coupons and you obviously don’t understand how coupons and store promotions work. Why would Rite Aid REALLY care if people are redeeming multiple in-ad coupons? Those coupons are paid for by the manufacturer although they are store coupons. Any RC49 is being reimbursed by the manufacturer (in not in whole then in part depending on the promotion and agreement between them and RA). The reason that they have the limit of 1 stated on the coupon is so that they CAN limit them if someone is going nuts and clearing shelves or buying up the whole store. It is a precaution.

      Why wouldn’t you be an adult and contact Roz via email if you had an issue or concern? That would be the appropriate thing to do.

      Also, just because someone is a blogger does not make them responsible for others actions nor do they HAVE to be by the book perfect. I do get what you are saying IF it is a for profit blog which this is NOT. Roz does not get paid or include affiliate links other than the occasional referral link to Ibotta and stuff like that but she is spending her time doing this because she likes to help people. For you to be so rude and childish with your “ooh, i’m telling on you” attitude is annoying. Good for you for limiting YOURSELF to 1 in-ad coupon. You aren’t doing Rite Aid any favors by doing that.

      This isn’t to attack you, just to have the back of someone that I really appreciate as a blogger, couponer and person.

    Well then, I guess I will be forwarding this blog post to L’Oreal as well. I’m sure the manufacturer will love to hear about the abuse of its coupons by you folks.

  • Melissa January 21, 2013, 06:38

    If you don’t like it, don’t do the deal & don’t follow the blog. Simple as that.

    -The Melissa that WILL be using & exploiting 5 in-ad coupons

    Is anybody doing the rebate with the towelettes ? Any tips on how to remove the upcs from the packaging and still the towelettes moist after that ?

    • admin January 21, 2013, 17:46

      You don’t need to remove the UPCs from the cleansers, below is what the rebate form says:

      Original UPC codes from packaging (For Youth
      Code Foaming Gel Cleanser, Age Perfect Crème Cleanser,
      Revitalift Crème Cleanser the removal of the UPC is not
      possible without destroying the product, please legibly
      write the UPC code number on the original dated sales
      receipt
      (or online purchase invoice). If handwritten UPC
      code number is illegible the request is invalid.) See sample
      UPC below.
