♥ today’s Rite Aid trip

April 25, 2009

I’ve made at least 5 this week, here is one of the more practical ones:

2 Loreal Skin Genesis face cleansers = $13.98
1 NovaMax meter = $9.99
2 Mentos gum = $2
Total= $25.97

Coupons I used:
$5/$25 Rite Aid coupon
$3/2 L’oreal face product coupon
2 – $1 Mentos gum coupons (makes them free)
Rebates I’ll get back:
$9.99 for the meter
$5.00 for buying $13 worth of L’Oreal

Grand total: $.98 or $.49 each for the cleansers! yay!

Obliged only to Rite Aid this week

April 20, 2009

I’ll most likely ignore Walgreen’s and CVS this week because Rite Aid has a lot to offer. Ah… Capitalism.
I’ve already made 1 trip and I have 1 more planned. I’ll most likely have at least 3 trips in the bag at week’s end.
Two majors things I will have accomplished here: Lots of toilet paper in the house along with some Dove shampoo and conditioner that I really like (but only ever experienced through tiny free samples). So here’s the low-down:

Trip 1:
4 – Cottonelle 4-pk
1 – Bengay Ultra
1 – RA brand Ceterizine (like Zyrtec)
1 – Sunday paper
=$26.44
-$3 in Sunday paper coupons
-$10 in Rite Aid-specific coupons
-$6 SCR for Bengay (rebate)
=$7.44 out of pocket

Trip 2
1 – Compound W Freeze Off Kit
1 – Wartner Wart Removal Kit
1 – Dove Shampoo
1 – Dove Conditioner
=$25.98
– $2.50 in Sunday paper coupons
– $21.98 in SCRs
-$5 in Rite Aid-specific coupons
= -$3.5 moneymaker

So, those 2 trips will only cost me $3.94 +tax altogether.

The wart remover is going to in-laws with kiddies and I just remembered Listerine is a great price this week. It’ll be worked into a run and I’ll hopefully get it free.

Great Week Hopes

April 6, 2009

Rite Aid, Walgreen’s and Target looks so awesome this week. Primarily RA. I haven’t made my plan of attack yet, but I’m gonna be like a kid in a candy store as soon as I sit down with the Rite Aid ad, a calculator, paper and a pencil.

Walgreen’s Looks Fun This Week

March 29, 2009

Since I still don’t have a CVS GC in my hands, it’ll be a Walgreen’s and Rite Aid week.   I have a $5 off $25+ Walgreen’s coupon that is set to expire, so I think I’ll give it to them this week.   Here is how Walgreen’s will go for me tomorrow in 2 consecutive trips:

Trip 1

3 – Reynold’s Aluminum Foil 20ft.

1- Wal-itin Allergy Relief

1 – Chapstick True Shimmers

1 – New Skintimate Shave gel product

2 –  Scotts 4-roll TP

1 – Glade Trash Bags, 45ct, 30 gl.

1- Softsoap Body Wash

=$30.62

-$5/$25 WG’s coupon

-1 Walgreen’s Reynold’s Wrap store coupon

–  [3] $1 – Reynolds Wrap (excl 25 ft only), from 02/08 Sunday paper

– [2] $1- Scott Extra Soft TP, from Sunday paper

-$1-Glad Trash bags, IP

-$6.99 Wal-itin ESR (rebate)

=$8.64 out-of-pocket and I’ll get back $5.98 in store credits + a $3.99 coupon for another Softsoap Body Wash

Trip 2

$10 worth of Physicians Formula Organic Wear Make-up (a mascara and another item)

1- Softsoap Body Wash

1- Snuggle Fabric Softner Sheets, 80ct

=19.58 (let’s say my make-up comes to $11)

-$.50-Snuggle coupon

-$5.98 Register Rebate from Trip 1

-$3.99 Softsoap coupon from Trip 1

-$10 Physicians Formula Rebate from WG’s

-$5.99 Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara Rebate (I’m assuming the mascara will cost around $5.99)

=$-6.88

Total for Trips 1 & 2 = $1.76

Pretty happy that we’re quite low on trash bags, fabric softner and TP (sort of) and I was able to work it in to a great Walgreen’s run this week.

Rite Aid won’t be nearly as thrilling and I haven’t planned a solid trip yet.

It’s Rite Aid This Week

March 23, 2009

The drugstores are pretty boring this week, except for Rite Aid.  Such a shame, as I remember a year ago having a blast watching the freebies accumulate.  Maybe it’s the economy.  I’ll hit up Rite Aid at the least, as I’ll be making some money to shop there this week (see below).  I’m holding off on CVS until a giftcard from my debit card’s reward program comes in the mail.  Otherwise I’d have to pay a little out-of-pocket for stuff I don’t need and that’s nonsense.

Rite Aid will go like this:

3 – Synovium gel inserts

2 – Vitamin Shampoo + Conditioner (BOGO)

2 – Kotex female stuff

=$27.99

-$5/$25 Rite Aid coupon

-$2-Synovium coupon

-$2-Synovium coupon

-$2-Synovium coupon

-$10 RA Synovium Rebate

-$1 Kotex coupon

-$1 Kotex coupon

-$1 RA Kotex Rebate

-$6.99 Vitamin Shampoo Mail in Rebate

=-$3

So a $3 moneymaker for me after I buy those things and my rebate checks come in the mail.  I hope my husband finds gel inserts useful.
