Every time I think I'm done with RiteAid for the week, it seems something else pops up. But I think this may be it. Maybe. No I'm definitely done. Probably.

I used up all my UP's, except for three $6 UP's that I'll roll into Lamisil next week. Next week is going to be about the Crystal Lite! Its on sale for $1.99 at ShopRite and there are $1 coupons floating around. That's all fine and dandy, what I'm stoked about are their new flavors - appletini, mohito and margarita! I hope I can find them in my stores.

Let's RiteAid baby!

First transaction
  • RA Brand Men's 3 Blade Razor $4.79 ($5.99 reg price, 20% Wellness discount), used $2 peelie coupon, $1 RA coupon (May Video Values) and got back $2 UP (Limit 4) = $0.21 profit
  • Similac Ready to Feed Advanced or Sensitive $4.99, used $5 coupon (4/3 or 5/1 SS) = FREE/$0.01 profit *This was a raincheck item from last week
  • Colgate Surround 360 Toothbrush $2.99, used $0.75 coupon (5/1 SS) and got back $2 UP (Limit 2) = $0.24
  • 5 Nabisco snack crackers $0.63 each ($0.79 reg price, 20% Wellness discount) = $3.15 *Also count towards SCR #48 ($2 WYB $10 Nabisco cookies/crackers, Limit 2) I'm up to $9.45 with my previous purchases so one more should do it.
  • Used $3/$15 survey coupon and two $2 UP's, total was $0.61, overall cost of the transaction was $0.61, so I'm getting these Nabisco cookies for really cheap.
Then at a second store, I got:
  • Calgon Bath Powder $2.39 ($2.99 reg price, 20% Wellness discount), used $1 coupon and got back $2 UP (monthly deal, valid until 5/31) =$0.61 profit *I read somewhere there might be a coupon coming in Sunday's paper for this!
  • RA Brand Men's 3 Blade Razor $4.79 ($5.99 reg price, 20% Wellness discount), used $2 peelie coupon, $1 RA coupon (May Video Values) and got back $2 UP (Limit 4) = $0.21 profit
  • 2 Tylenol Precise Patches or Creams $5 each, used two $5 coupons = FREE *This was a raincheck item from last week and also counts towards $10 Weekend Warrior UP deal ($10 UP WYB $25, Limit 2, Valid until 6/25). I had $5 towards this deal previously, so once I buy two more, I'll get back a $10 UP.
  • Used $3/$15 survey coupon, total was $0.60, overall profit $3.40
Then finally, I got:
  • Rimmel Match Perfect Foundation $8.99, used $2 coupon (or here) and will get back $3 (SCR #4)
  • 3 Rimmel Eye/Eyebrow Pencils $3.79 and $3.99 each, BOGO 50% off sale so one was $1.89, one was $1.99 and one was $3.79 (so confusing!), used three $2 coupons (or here) and got back $5 UP (WYB $15 of Rimmel, Limit 2)
  • Used $3/$15 survey coupon, $1 RA coupon for non-prescription purchase (May Video Values) and two $2 UP's, total was $1.48, overall profit $2.52
Rainchecks are so great. The stores around me were out of Tylenol and Similac last week, so I picked up the rainchecks to get these items free another week. But even better than that, they helped me squeeze out two more $15 scenarios for very little out of pocket. I gave all the regular varieties of Similac to a gal at work with the most adorable little munchkin at home. She doesn't need the sensitive variety, so I'll bring those to the food bank and hopefully help out another mom. I wish I could have picked her up a couple more bottles, but the stores are still out of the regular variety.

You make me wish we had Rite Aid here.

I was like that last week...just kept on going back for more. This week, no Scotch tape at Wags, so got a RC. No razors at RA, so got a RC. No problem - I'm sure the RC's will come in handy!

I like your blog Frugalsuz - concise.

I wish you had one too! Its so tough to see great deals at a store that's nowhere near you.

Thanks! I try to be short and sweet with most of my posts. We're all busy people, so its nice to have the info you need at your fingertips.
