My trip to Rite Aid was a little disappointing today. Come on, Rite Aid, bring on the good deals! I still have my Gift of Savings to spend, along with $40ish in UPR from the Darice crafts deal last week. Anyway, here is my meager haul for today:

Two Wet Ones ($1.99 each)
Two Excedrin Extra Strength ($4.50? I have a 10% off discount and don’t have my receipt on me since I mailed it in for my rebate, so I can’t remember!)
One Renpure Organics ($6.99 but $6.29 after my 10% off)

I used:
2x $1/1 Wet Ones from Walmart’s website
2x Free Excedrin PM (delivered via snail mail when I signed up for it a few weeks ago)

So total was $8.27. I got two $1 Wet Ones UPRs and I’m getting a $6.99 rebate because the Renpure had a freebate hangtag on it. Total profit: $0.72. Not much, but I’ll take it! 🙂 Rite Aid deals are coming shortly.

Oh, almost forgot, I got the Petrotech at the local natural pet store, Nature’s Pet, on clearance for $3, with a $5 rebate hangtag on it! So $2 profit there.

A very successful trip to Rite Aid!

Sorry for not having any posts over the weekend! The Christmas party/birthday combo kept me so busy. As such, I’m not going to bother writing out all of the weekly deals for Rite Aid and Walgreens, but will just link you to For the Mommas‘ weekly deals for Rite Aid and to My Frugal Adventures for Walgreens for this week.

Today’s trips were okay, but nothing to write home about.  Rite Aid was of course out of stock of most of the stuff I wanted, including more EcoTools, the Disney puzzles and figurines and some more Colgate toothpaste.

I did get three Advil Congestion Reliefs, two (one isn’t shown) Gillette razors, two Wonderful Pistachios and I had enough profit left over to get my daughter a little puppy dog, which she hasn’t put down since we got home.  After the dog I still had $1.xx profit, woohoo.


Walgreens was okay, but mostly just because I had to spend my Super Jingle Cash this week and I sort of just tossed together a scenario.


12 Snickers bars

2 Blue Diamond Almonds

2 Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel (ha, banana and grey were the only colours left!)

1 Goody hair ties

1 Activ-On Joint and Muscle

1 Walgreens Energy Booster

2 Christmas cups

2 Sets of two Toy Story and princess paintable figurines

For total cost of $7.  I was going to buy the almonds anyway, and there weren’t any huge moneymakers this week.  Not bad though!

Both Wags and Rite Aid are having four-day sales starting tomorrow. I highlighted the best deals earlier in the week, but here are a couple of scenarios you could work around.

My Rite Aid Scenario for 12/15

3 Disney Figurines, $0.99, on sale for 25% off.
3 Disney Puzzles, $0.99, on sale for 25% off.
2 Wonderful Pistachios, 2/$5.
2 Frosted MiniWheats, 2/$5
2 Ecotools, $2.99, on sale for BOGO 50% off.
2 Colgate Sensitive, $3.50
2 Rite Aid brand tape, $1.49, on BOGO.
1 Advil Congestion Relief 10 ct, $4.99.
1 Gillette Fusion Manual or Power Razor, $9.49.

Total $41.89

Use 2x $1/1 Wonderful Pistachios from 11/21 SS or $1/1 printable
Use 2x $1.50/1 Frosted MiniWheats printable (no longer available, unfortunately)
Use $2/1 Advil printable coupon
Use $1/1 Advil Video Values coupon
Use 1x $4/1 Gillette Razor

$31.89 oop

And get back:
6x $2 UPR for Disney toys
1x $1 UPR for Pistachios
1x $2 UPR for MiniWheats
1x $5 UPR for Ecotools
2x $3.50 UPR for Colgate
2x $1 UPR for tape
1x $3 UPR for Advil
1x $5 UPR for Gillette

Total profit $4.11

Of course, this is just the deal that I’m doing tomorrow based on my coupons. If you don’t have the MiniWheats coupon or still have the $0.75/1 Colgate coupon or have the Air Wick candle coupons, there are many different deals to be had.


Now, for Walgreens I have 3 of the $5 Super Jingle Cash from last week. I normally don’t mind having extra RR because I can just use them at Safeway as MQs, but the Super Jingle Cash are actually store coupons. They also state only one can be redeemed per transaction, so I need to have three separate transactions to burn through these before Sunday.

My Walgreens Scenario for 12/15

Transaction 1:
1 Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel, $5.99
3 Mars Candy, $1.17
1 Christmas Tumbler, $0.12

$7.28 total.

Use $1/1 Revlon from Bright and Beautiful Guide (available at Cosmetics)
Use $2/3 Mars from 12/5 RP
Use $5 Super Jingle Cash

Pay $0.12 oop

Get back $5 Revlon RR

Transaction 2:
1 Activ-On Joint and Muscle, $7.99
1 Walgreens Energy Booster, $3

$10.99 total

Use $5 Revlon RR
Use $5 Super Jingle Cash

Pay $0.99 oop

Get back $8 Activ-On RR
Get back $3 Energy RR

Transaction 3:
1 Coffee-Mate, $1.50
1 Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel, $5.99
1 Goody Hair Ties, $2
3 Mars Candy, $1.17
2 Toys on BOGO, $6.99
1 Scotch Mailer, $0.39
2 Blue Diamond Almonds, 2/$4

$22.04 total

Use $1/1 Coffee-Mate printable (Like them on Facebook)
Use $1/1 Revlon from Bright and Beautiful Guide
Use $2/3 Mars from 12/5 RP
Use $0.60/2 Blue Diamond Almonds
Use $5 Super Jingle Cash
Use $8 Activ-On RR
USe $3 Energy RR

Pay $1.44 oop

Get back $5 Revlon RR
Get back $2 Goody RR

So, total cost for Walgreens will be $9.44, but only $2.55 out of pocket.

So, I wasn’t planning on going to Rite Aid again until the four-day ad started, but I saw that there was a good deal on free tape, and I had just run out. Who doesn’t need more tape at Christmastime?

5 Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste 6 oz ($3.50)
2 Ecotools bath tools ($2.99 and $3.99 because the $1.99 were out of stock)
10 Rite Aid brand invisible tape ($1.49 on BOGO)
2 Rite Aid brand envelopes ($2.29 on BOGO)

Total was $32.72.

I used 3 $0.75 off any Colgate from the 12/5 SS, and I got:

5x $3.50 UPR for Colgate
1x $5 UPR for buying two Ecotools
10x $1 UPR for buying tapes (Yes, the tape costs $0.75 and gives you $1 back!)
2x $1 UPR for buying envelopes

Total profit: $1.78.

This deal is great because you don’t even need coupons for it, and there’s no limit on the amount of UPR you can earn.

Also, my receipt today was a full 7 feet long! I measured it.

Hit a few snags at Rite Aid today, namely that they were out of stock on the cheaper Revlon tools and I couldn’t find any c. Booth items cheap enough to be worth buying.  Still not bad though!

Total cost $1.68.  Would have been $0.71 profit if I didn’t need the dish soap.  Remember that there’s a mid-week ad to check out on Wednesday as well!
