Can't Stay Away from that Much Profit

Felt like shopping today, so that's just what I did. From what I've read on Slick Deals, the UP Rewards are acting all wonky lately, and it appears that some items may have a limit on how many UP Rewards you can get for a certain deal. I'm playing it safe and just doing each deal once on each card. I'm also going to try and keep the UP Rewards separated by the card I earned them on. I don't see anything distinguishing on the rewards themselves, so I made a small note in the corner of each so I'll know which is which. I'm pretty sure this doesn't matter right now at RA, but I have a feeling its coming down the line that you have to use the right rewards with the right card.
Rite Aid - my Wellness card
  • Zegerid (14 ct) $10, used $4 coupon (6/20 SS), $3 in-circular coupon, $3 RA coupon (won't beep with multiple use) and got back $7 UP Rewards = $7 profit
  • Dulcolax Balance (8.3 oz. 14 dose) $9.99, used $5 coupon (May All You magazine) and will get back $9.99 (SCR #18) = $5 profit
  • Biotrue Lens Care Solution (4 oz) $4.99, used $4 coupon (found at Walmart in eyeglass store) and will get back $4 (SCR #43) = $3.01 profit *$4.99 is the regular price for this
  • Traditional Medicinals Smooth Move Tea (16 ct.) $3.69, used $2 coupon and will get back $3.69 (SCR #23) = $2 profit
  • Pantene Styler $3.99, used $2 coupon (recent Parade magazine) and got back $2 UP Reward = FREE/$0.01 profit *Will use this towards $10 Olay/Pantene/Venus/Cover Girl /Secret rebate (WYB $30 worth)
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon and $2 UP Reward, total was $2.94 - paid with gift card from previous rebate

There was also a "try me free" something rebate on the Zegerid in a recent coupon insert, wasn't there?

Within the last couple of weeks...I'll try to find it today.
Like making $7 buying it isn't enough... :)

That comment made me laugh out loud. So, when are you heading to the outlet mall? :O)

The latest excuse given to me for not taking a coupon "Oh, Well you can't use that coupon on clearence becasue it will make that item FREE" LOL
You make me want a Rite Aid store near me just so I can "shop" there.

Mary,
Thanks for the reminder, I will submit for that too! I did two rebates previously with Zegrid, so I'll do a third at my parents' address.

Thrifty,
I know, right? I was peeved at the waste of my time, but laughing on the inside.

Jennifer,
Thanks for the links! Maybe you'll get a RA in your area, you never know.
