Not Very Flattering

What self respecting cat sits like this? Oh wait...
...that's right - its Monday. Yup, definitely Monday.
Rite Aid - my card:
  • 2 Tugaboos $0.79 each ($0.99 reg price, 20% Wellness discount), used two $1 coupons (found inside package) = $0.42 profit
  • 4 Airwick Freshmatic Kits $12.99 (fresh scent) and $13.99 each (lavender) and 2 Airwick Candles $5.99 each, BOGO sale, used four $4 freshmatic coupons and two $3 candle coupons (11/14 SS) and got back three $3 UP's ($3 UP WYB $10, the free ones don't count towards your total spent) = $1.97
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, $1 UP and two $2 UP's, total was $2.51, overall profit $1.49
DBF's card:
  • 4 Revlon Emery Boards (12 ct.) $0.75 each (40% off sale), used $3 RA coupon, will get back $1 (SCR #62) and got back two $2 UPs ($2 WYB 2) = $5 profit
  • 2 Ecotools Bath Care and Accessories $2.99 and $1.99, BOGO 50% off sale, got back $5 UP (WYB 2) = $1.02 profit
  • 2 RA envelopes $2.29 each, BOGO sale, got back two $1 UP's = $0.29
  • Thomas English Muffins $1.99
  • Super secret Christmas present ~$17
  • Used $5 off $25 coupon, $10 UP and three $2 UP's, total was $2.28
This store was encountering some kind of system error while I was there. FUN! My UP's wouldn't scan, you could only pay with cash and no UP's would print. They ended up giving me my UP's as cash instead (fine by me!). And, my $5/$25 coupon only scanned as $0.01. I'd heard about this happening so I wasn't entirely surprised. The cashier called over one of the rudest managers I've ever seen. They conferred about my subtotal for the longest time and finally deduced that it was scanning for a penny because the cashier scanned my $3 Revlon coupon first. Yeah ok, that makes sense. They tried scanning it again (another penny discount) and then finally entered it manually for $5. As I was waiting in line, the manager was ringing up other people and talking to someone on the phone in the back office. He literally slammed the phone at one point. Very nice behavior to display in front of your customers, huh?

Finally, on my card:
  • 4 Revlon Emery Boards (12 ct.) $0.75 each (40% off sale), used $3 RA coupon, will get back $1 (SCR #62) and got back two $2 UPs ($2 WYB 2) = $5 profit
  • 2 Ecotools Bath Care and Accessories $2.99 and $1.99, BOGO 50% off sale, got back $5 UP (WYB 2) = $1.02 profit
  • 2 Lays chips $2.63 each (reg. $3.29, 20% Wellness discount), will submit for $5 Kona NBPR rebate = $0.26 *Thought these would be $2.50 each with a $1 UP, but the sale must have excluded the kettle chips
  • 2 Velveeta $1.99 each, got back two $1 UPs = $1.98 or $0.99 each
  • Used $3/$15 coupon (emailed to me from RA) and five $2 UPs, total was $0.62, overall profit $6.38
Pathmark - haven't been here in ages! I saw this deal online today and thought it would be great to combine with a Michelob NBPR rebate on gourmet cheese (among other things). Think I can squeak by with Cracker Barrel as gourmet?
  • 6 Cracker Barrel cheeses $1.99 each (shelf price $5.29 each), got back $10 catalina (for spending $30, based on shelf prices) = $1.94
Will try for the Michelob rebate ($6 when you spend $10), which would make this deal a $4.06 profit.

my $5 off $25 also scanned at $0.01 tonight!! but the cashier pushed it through without problems. it's really frustrating having disrespectful associates... geesh.

mona said...

hi im back from another RA. Too bad, they didn't accept my $5 off $25. Manager said that the coupon is not legit. Oh well.

That stinks. They couldn't have waited a couple weeks to officially discontinue the coupon? Its only good until 12/31 anyway. Oh well.

Does anyone know if their us a limit on the Eco tools up rewards?

Question....I entered in my receipts at Rite Aid and qualify for a single check rebate but am also working on the gift of savings. Do the checks for these have to be requested at the same time? Thanks. I'm saving $$ thanks to the coupon folks blogs!

I used the $5/$25 at one store and scanned fine, but at the next store it scanned $.01 but luckily she pushed it says invalid coupon on my receipts.

And,I can see what you mean about the difficulty with finding the EcoTools. I scored BIGTIME @ store #3.

@Linda, I have done Eco 8 times now.

Unless there's a limit listed in the circular for a particular deal, UP's are unlimited! :)

You can request your GOS separately from your rebates, no worries. Its just that when you request your monthly check, you can't do any more rebates for that month so make sure you're ready to go.

Great haul! I'm hoping to find some RA tape tomorrow.
