  • My Rite Aid scenario this week: $13+ moneymaker

    As I mentioned yesterday, I haven’t been shopping much at Rite Aid, but the deals this week are too good to pass up. I was able to pick up a few things I need, and make over $13 in the process. Here was my scenario:

    2 Motrin PM 20-ct – $3 each
    2 Tylenol Precise – $5 each
    2 Special K – $4.79 (BOGO; price will vary by store)
    2 Stayfree – 2/$5
    1 Hormel Compleats – $1.99

    Subtotal: $27.78

    Coupons:
    - $4 off $20 purchase Video Values coupon
    - 2 x $6/2 Motrin PM, Tylenol Precise, Pepcid or Zyrtec 1/9/2011 SS
    - BOGO Special K printable (max value $4.49)
    - BOGO Stayfree printable (no longer available?) or from 1/9 SS
    - $1/1 Stayfree printable
    - $0.75/1 Hormel Compleats printable (no longer available?)
    - $0.50/1 Hormel Compleats Video Values coupon

    Paid: $2.54 + tax

    Received:
    2 x $2 +UP for Motrin
    2 x $3 +UP for Precise
    $2 +UP for Stayfree
    2 x $1 +UP for Hormel
    2 x $1 +UP for Special K
    Total received = $16 +UP

    The deals are so good that I think I might head back again this week, trying a different store to see if they have a lower price on the Special K. Here’s what I’m thinking:

    8 Special K cereal – $4.79 each, BOGO (the store I was at yesterday had tons)
    2 Stayfree – 2/$5
    1 Hormel – $1.99
    1 Blink – $7.99

    Subtotal: $34.14

    Coupons:
    - 2 x BOGO Special K cereal (max value $4.49)
    - 3 x $1/2 Special K cereal 1/2 RP
    - BOGO Stayfree printable or from 1/9 SS
    - $1/1 Stayfree printable
    - $0.75/1 Hormel Compleats printable
    - $1/1 Blink 1/2 SS
    - $16 +UPs from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.91 + tax

    Receive:
    8 x $1 +UP for Special K
    $2 +UP for Stayfree
    2 x $1 +UP for Hormel
    $7.99 SCR for Blink
    Total received = $19.99

      I am in Southern CA also and with the B1G1 special K coupon I got 8boxes and used 4 B1g1 and also used a $1/2 from last weeks inserts and they all scanned fine and didn't beep or anything. (it will give you about .80 overage so make sure you have other stuff in your order to use it up)
      Then I received 8x1ups for buying the cereal so a big mm.
