Thanks Jamie!

UPDATE - thanks for the tip Laurie! There's also a Zyrtec rewards program going where you get back $10 when you spend $50 on Zyrtec. If I buy a third one, I'll have spent $56.97 so I'll qualify. After coupons, the Zyrtec will cost me $9.99 and then I'll qualify for the $10 rebate so I think I'm going to go for it. :)
I saw this amazing deal on Jamie's blog Rite Aid Transaction One
  • Colgate Advanced Whitening toothpaste (4 oz) $2.49, used $0.50 coupon (8/9 SS) and will get back $2.49 (SCR #119) = $0.50 profit
  • Zyrtec (10 mg 30 count) $18.99, used $5 in-circular coupon and $4 coupon (8/2 SS) and will count towards SCR #97 ($25 WYB $50 worth of select J&J brands) = $9.99
  • 2 Tylenol 8 hour $2.99 each, used two $2 coupons (8/23 SS) and will get back $2 (SCR #50, limit 1) and this also counts for SCR #97 = $0.02 profit
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, total was $8.96

Transaction Two

  • Zyrtec (10 mg 30 count) $18.99, used $5 in-circular coupon and $4 coupon (8/2 SS) and will count towards SCR #97 ($25 WYB $50 worth of select J&J brands) = $9.99
  • 3 Tylenol Rapid Release $2.99 each, used two $0.50 peelie coupons (*wanted the 8 hour ones but the store was out) and will count towards SCR #97 ($25 WYB $50 worth of select J&J brands) = $7.97
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, total was $12.96

Here's what I should get back: $2.49 (SCR #119), $2 (SCR #50) and $25 (SCR #97), so overall, that's a profit of $7.57. If I'd been able to find three more Tylenol 8 hours, my profit would've been even higher.

ShopRite

  • 4 Glade Soy Candles $2.99 each, used four freebie coupons (8/9 SS) = FREE
  • 4 Perdue Flavor Bites $2.57 each, used four $2 coupons (8/23 RP) = $2.28 or $0.57 each *There was a TMF rebate form in this insert as well but I don't think I'm going to bother for a $0.57 rebate. I'm pretty sure the rebate says you'll only get back the post-coupon price
  • Perdue chicken burgers - markdown to $1.25
  • 6 Great Lakes cheeses $0.88 each
  • Total was $9.60

I also pulled together a mass of books that I'm giving to my mom to donate. They're doing a "book run" at her job. Most of these are books that have been lying around my parents' house for years. I tried to sell them online, but they either weren't worth anything or haven't sold in the time I've had them up, so its time for them to find a new home. Don't you just love cleaning things out?

I'm working on that same Zyrtec deal :-)

You should also be getting a $10 certificate from the Zyrtec Rewards program that is connected w/the SCR site.

Laurie,
I thought I saw on iheartriteaid that you'd have to buy three Zyrtec's to qualify? I'll have to check that out, thanks!

Queenbuv3,
Thanks so much!
