Rite Aid Deals 10/3/10-10/9/10

Remember to take advantage of the Rite-Aid Video Values. These give you great $5/$25 coupons and a $4/$20 coupon, plus other coupons you can combine with the manufacturers coupons and the in-ad coupons, single check rebates, and up-rewards to make for free or almost free items. You can check the current list of coupons (these are just ones your get in your mail or newspaper) here. Try and plan your trip to combine your items into totals of over $25, so you can use $5/$25 coupon for an even better deals. I am going to put the items in the ads into different scenarios, you are welcome to change them around to suit your needs. There are a lot more deals than the ones I list. To view the complete ad online click here.  You can do one or all of the following scenarios. Change them around as needed. Make sure you keep the total as close to $25 as you can. (the tax can be included as part of the $25 amount!)

I have decided to just list scenarios in transactions of about $25 (this will vary depending on the sales). You can use my suggestions, or you can browse the ad and substitute your own items to fit your needs.  To view the complete ad online click here. Use the above information to help you.

So overall with all 3 transactions you will end up paying $21.92 + tax Out Of Pocket. You will get $15.68 in +Up Rewards. Your total cost for everything will be $22.95 for 30 items, which makes each item only $0.77 per item!!! To figure this out, you take the total (before coupons), subtract out the coupons, then subtract out the +Up Rewards and/or SCR, and any Mail in Rebates, then you have your Final cost. This will be different that your out of pocket cost. You have to figure out the +Up Rewards you got from other purchases that you may have used to bring your out of pocket cost down. If there were no other +Up rewards used, then you have your Total cost, then subtract out the +Up and/or Single Check Rebates, and if there are any mail-in-rebates then you will get your Final Cost.

Let me know if you have any questions, and what great deals you find!
