Rite Aid Deals 7/25-7/31, 2010

If you are new to Rite Aid, you need to do two things. Create a Video Values account, and you need to sign up for a Wellness card. Both of these things are what will save you money while shopping there.  

I only listed a handful of the items from the ad, so look it over here if you want anything else. Also remember you can combine the items and use the $5/$25 coupons here for even greater savings. It has been my experience that you don't have to separate items in order to get the same Up Reward anymore.

Rite Aid Shopping Trip 7/22/10


Funny enough, I found one more $1/1 Pantene Haircare coupon and wanted to go and get another hairspray for $1, so I ran in and on the way back there, I noticed that the Garnier Facial Cleansers all had $2/1 peelies on them!!!! YEA! I grabbed 4 of them (it seems like we go through these like crazy) and got my hairspray and two more toothpastes and headed up to the register. Here is what happened!
(2) Garnier Nutritioniste Facial Wash, $6.29 ($12.58) 
         $5/1 Garnier Nutritioniste (in-ad coupon)
        (2) $2/1 peelies from in-store
* (1) Pantene Hairspray $3.99 
        Use $1/1 from the 7/4 PG
Total = $7.71 oop
                 Get back $3 up reward from Garnier + $2 up reward from Pantene
                 Total = $2.71 total cost
____________________________________________________________
(2) Garnier Nutritioniste Facial Wash, $6.29 ($12.58)
                $5/1 Garnier Nutritioniste (in-ad coupon)
                (2) $2/1 peelies from in-store
Use $3 up reward from Garnier
Total = $1.44 oop
                 Get back $3 up reward from Garnier
                 Total = $1.44 total cost
 ____________________________________________________________
(2) Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste $2.99 ($5.98)
Use (2) $0.75/1 from 7/4 PG
Use (4) $1 up rewards
Total = $0.89 oop
                 Get back (2) $1.49 up rewards from Crest
                 Total = $1.48 total cost


Out of pocket you will spend $10.04 (or less, depending on the up rewards you use, I forgot on my first transaction to use ones from the previous shopping trip that were left over...). Over all you will pay $5.63. Since you purchased 4 more facial care products, you are now eligible for the $10+$5 bonus rebates for Skin Care Rebates. So that takes me from spending $10 to making $5! I was so excited to realize that.


I have to tell you this trip did not go well. None of the Up rewards were printing on the receipts and I ended up making three trips in before it was all figured out right. But it was. and so this is a great lesson on CHECKING YOUR RECEIPTS BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE STORE!

I spent $27.94 oop for everything. I submitted the receipts online for my Single Check Rebates (the info processed and was ready within 1-2 days) and The bottom line is that I will get back $12.95 and won't have paid for anything! after I get my rebates back. ($9.99, $10, $5 and these are all SCR which come within a week or two of when you request your check, so you don’t have to wait 4-6 weeks.) 


Another Bonus! Get another $10 by submitting the following rebate (I purchased all the items today)
*Purchase $30 worth of any Olay, Venus, Covergirl, Secret, or Pantene products and receive
a $10 rebate by mail.
The * items come to $32.93, so I can submit this rebate as well and make another $10. If I do this I will have made $22.95 from this shopping trip! 
WAHOO!!!
