Holy 80's Hair Products

Rite Aid
  • 3 Prell shampoos $0.99 each (13.5 oz), will get back $2 (SCR #100, Limit 5) = $1.01 profit on each, $3.03 profit overall
  • Total was $3.20

At another store, I bought:

  • 3 LA Looks Gels $0.99 each (20 oz), used three $1 coupons (10/4 SS) = $0.03 profit
  • 2 Olay body washes $5.59 each
  • 2 Olay Quench lotion $5.99 and $7.49, used two freebie coupons (WYB body wash, 11/29 P&G) and will send away for TMF rebate (Limit 2) = $1.90 profit. When I count in the $5 coupon and the $10 GOS, that ups it to $16.90 profit
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, total was $8.09

These purchases bumped me from the $10 level to the $20 level for the GOS program. I really wanted to do the John Frieda or Nivea deals this week, but I didn't get those coupons in my inserts, so the Olay deal was a great substitute. I'm going to try and find more Prell at a different RA tomorrow. If you can't find any, be sure to get a raincheck. The SCR is good all month for this item.

  • Sun/Mon/Tues ONLY: 2 Merry Brite Holiday Gift Tissue Red and Green (20 ct) $1.99 each, got back $3.98 EB (Limit 2) = FREE
  • Reese's tree $0.75
  • Used $4 EB, total was $1.06

Thanks for posting the Olay deal. I didn't get the JF Qs either, so I'm gonna get Olay, covergirl & Nivea to get me over my $62 mark. Still have a $20 GOS certificate to use.
FYI - I just saw that the $5 RR bonus bucks is only for 12/16-12/17. So we won't get BBs if they have the 15% F&F event on Friday :-(

My LA Qs are for 20oz & larger. My RA cashiers always study the Qs, so there's no way I can use them on the 13.5 oz bottles :-(

Thanks for letting me know, I'll readjust some trips I had planned. The LA Looks bottles are 20 oz, so I didn't have a problem using the coupons. Are the bottles smaller in your area?
