Loooooofah!

Rite Aid - my card. The $1.99 Ecotools items are hard to find. I went to five different stores today that had none at all. This deal is a bit of a scavenger hunt, but its worth it.
  • 10 Ecotools Bath Care and Accessories $1.99 each, BOGO 50% off sale so half were $0.99, got back $5 UP for every two I bought = $10.10 profit
  • 4 Airwick Candles $5.99, BOGO sale, used four $3 coupons (11/14 SS) and got back $3 UP (WYB $10, the free ones don't count towards your total spent) = $3.02 profit
  • 2 Tostitos $2.50 each, got back $1 UP and will use towards $5 Kona NBPR rebate on snacks = $1 profit
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, $10 UP and two $2 UP's, total was $2.41, overall profit $17.59

  • 2 Tugaboos $0.79 each ($0.99 reg price, 20% Wellness discount), used two $1 coupons (found inside package) = $0.42 profit

Where do you find the Tugaboo diapers for $.99? I have looked in the diaper aisle and the travel/trial aisle. Thanks!

That's a tough question to answer because they are in a different spot in each store! I've found them hanging from displays in the diaper aisle, on endcaps, in baskets in random places in the store and sometimes not at all. I wish I could give you more specific info!

Appreciate all the information you have on your blog. I got a Rite Aid card and just yesterday entered my receipts for a single rebate and also the holiday rebate. Thanks! I intend to knock my grocery bill waaay down.

silly question, but could I use the UP rewards from the loofahs to go and buy even more loofahs?

btw, i LOVE your blog! I check it daily and I love how you post deals!

rsgtarte,
That's fantastic! Just stick with it and soon enough, you'll see big difference in your budget each month.

barbiegosia,
Its not a silly question at all. At RiteAid, you can use your UP rewards to buy pretty much anything, including more of the same item. You can do this at CVS as well. The only place where you can't "roll" your rewards is Walgreens. So if you bought something at Walgreens, got a reward, used that reward to buy more of the same item, you won't get a new reward.

Thanks for your kind words!

Can you tell me how many points you need to accumulate on your Wellness card at Rite Aid to qualify for the 20% off?

debbielynne,
You need to get up to 1,000 points. Hope that helps!
