Rite Aid Shopping Trip 02/11/10

I got out in the snow!  If it was only for a half hour give or take.  My hubby and daughter went with me to Rite Aid.  I had 2 $20 Gift of Savings Certificates that expire soon so I wanted to find the best way to use them.

I mentioned earlier about the P&G Olympic Visa Rewards Rebate #551VALID ONLY ON PURCHASES FROM 01/17/10 to 02/13/10

Purchase Twenty-Five Dollars ($25.00) Worth of Any Variety for a $5.00 VISA Reward Card OR
Purchase Fifty Dollars ($50.00) Worth of Any Variety for a $15.00 VISA Reward Card OR
Purchase One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) Worth of Any Variety for a $35.00 VISA Reward Card

My goals was to spend at $100 before coupons to get the $35 VISA card and also get as much Rite Aid rebates.

I had to change some of my purchases because they were out of some things.  I bought the CrossAction toothbrushes and batteries instead of Tide and Tide Action packs, my store doesn’t carry the Action packs yet.  I also bought the deodorant and body wash since there weren’t any more Bounty 6 packs.

Note: (4) $1/1 from PG 2/7  – These coupons weren’t accepted by the machine and the cashier wouldn’t push them through.  They say “CrossAction” so I’m not sure why they beeped.  I still bought them because I need to reach the $100.

Used the $3 coupon from Rite Aid for Durcell Batteries

Used the $5/$20
Used the $20 gift certificate

OOP:  $19.62

I will get $17 back in Rite Aid Check.
I will get the $35 Visa reward because I purchased $112 worth of merchandise.
Total = $52

Since I’m now considering any reward that is store credit as a coupon (i.e $20 gift certificates) rather than cash, then this was a profit of $26.87.

Profit: $26.87

I saved a lot because since most of the items were on sale BEFORE coupons the value of the products are worth more than $112. Taking what I spent out of pocket which equals $25.13 and not considering the rebates I saved 77% ($112-$25.13)/$112!   When you consider the rebates I will get I saved 123% ($112-$25.13+$52)/$112!!  Wow!

Thanks to KrazyCouponlady for all of the good ideas!
