Rite Aid Shopping Trip 11/13/10 – All for $11.25 and got back $8.99!

Wow!  It’s been a long time since I posted a shopping trip and I thought this one was worth it to post.

Check out all I got for $11.25 and I got back $8.99 to use on my next purchases.  I’m really amazed at the deals that Rite Aid has with their new +UP reward program.

I did this in a couple transactions because I had a raincheck for the Nivea lotion which would have been a $5 +UP but what the cashier did was put it towards my next purchase.  What a great idea.

I highly recommend getting to know the cashiers and managers at your stores because they can help you with rain-checks, checking the back for the product or even some other creative ways to help you get some good deals.

This is what I did:

Transaction 1

I bought the Nivea lotion for $5.99 and got back $5 that they took off my next order. I spent $6.28.

Transaction 2

I then bought 4 Kleenex tissues 200 count for $2.49 B1G1  so I bought 4.  I had a coupon for Buy 3 get 1 FREE max $2.25 and a $1.00 off Kleenex Rite Aid Video coupon.  That made it $.43 a box.

I also bought Speed stick cleanshield for $1.99 and used a $1.00 off Any Cleanshield Rite Aid Video coupon.  That made it $.99.

Then  I bought Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Anti-dandruff, Leave In Conditioner and Hair Color.  After spending $15 get $5 in +UP rewards.

The Shampoo was $3.00 and I used a $1.00 Manufacture coupon and a $1.00 Fructis Color Shield Rite Aid Video Coupon. That made it $1.00

The Anti-dandruff Shampoo was $3.99  and I used a $1.00 Manufacturer coupon and a $2.00 Fructis Anti-Dandruff Rite Aid Video Coupon. That made it $.99

I bought the Leave in Conditioner for $3.00 and used a $1.00 Manufacturer coupon. That made it $2.00

Last, I bought the hair color for $5.99 and used a $3.00 Manufacturer coupon.  (I found out I could have used a Rite Aid Video coupon for $2 off.) That made it $2.99.

I also bought a $.99 card.

I used a $4/$20 coupon and a $1 off any non-prescription coupon from the Rite Aid Rewards Videos.

I got $5 off from the Nivea lotion.

I used a $1 +UP reward that I gotten a week or so go.

I spent $1.49!

I got back $5 from the Garnier Fructis Shampoo deal.

Transaction 3

I then purchased the 2 scrubbing Bubbles 2/$6 and the cashier suggested I get the toothpaste for $2.99 too. So I did.

I used a $1.00 manufacture coupon for the scrubbing bubbles (couldn’t find another coupon at home), and the Crest toothpaste I used a $1.00 manufacture coupon. I also had a different $1.00 off a non-prescription coupon from Rite Aid Video Rewards.

I also had two $2 +UP rewards to use up since they were going to expire.

I spent $2.43 and got back $2.99 +UP reward for the Crest toothpaste and $1.00 +UP for the Scrubbing Bubbles.

Transaction 4

The cashier was fantastic and mentioned to me that I could get the toothpaste and again and even roll the $2.99 that I just got and get it again!

I did just that I didn’t have a coupon but that was ok, because I didn’t need the overage.

I got another toothpaste for $.15 and got back $2.99 +UP reward.

That made my total to be $11.25 and I got back $8.99 to use on my next purchase.

CVS Shopping Trip 6/13/10

Again and again I go to CVS and I’m amazed at how much I can get for so little!   I try really hard to lower my out of pocket and in this case my out of pocket is a little bit more then I wanted but I came out ahead at the end.

On the right hand side of the photo, I got the free Extra Care bucks $2 ECB just for scanning my card and it expires 7/13/10.

This is the amazing deal!   Old Spice is currently $4 right now and you will get $4 ECB limit 1.  However, when I did this by buying 2  and using the B1G1 coupon in the P&G 6/5/10 I got back $8 ECBs!   Woohoo!   Sorry, I don’t have both in the picture.  That makes it a $4 profit!

Buy 2 Old Spice Body Washes – I bought the After Hours  $4 each = $8
Use one of the coupons:
FREE Old Spice Body Wash wyb Body Wash or Deodorant (P&G 5/2/10)
FREE Old Spice Body Wash wyb Body Wash or Deodorant (P&G 6/6/10)
$4 OOP
Get back $8 ECBs!!

This is the transaction I did:

I used a $5/$30 coupon I got in my email.

Schick Hydro 3 or Hydro 5 Razor or Cartridge, $8.97
Get $4 ECBs! (Limit 1)
$5/1 Schick Hydro Razor, exp. 6-12-10 (SS 05/09/10)

Right Guard Total Defense ($3.29) B1G1 Free – I bought 4
-$3/2 printable coupon here
=.29 cents for two after coupon!

Gillette or Old Spice Body Wash $4 Earn 4 ECBs Limit 1
-B1G1 Gillette Body Wash, exp. 7-31-10 (P&G 06/06/10)
-FREE Old Spice Deodorant wyb Body Wash or Deodorant (P&G 6/6/10)
=2 FREE products after coupon and ECBs!  See more info above.

I didn’t have any ECBs left since I bought so many diapers and baby products that were 75% off so I actually spent some money.  I spent $16.86 and I got back $17 in ECBs!  That made my trip a profit of $.14! Not bad.

The reason I bought new born diapers is actually for my daughter to play with them.  My daughter recently turned 2 and is in love with her new baby doll that Grammy bought her so she wants to put her big size 6 diapers on the baby doll and explains to my husband and I what the baby doll does in the diaper.   I’m thinking this might help her understand that she doesn’t need diapers anymore.  We will see.  She did go potty once this weekend!

Thanks to and!
