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.

Holy smokes, fantastic trip to Walgreens this week. Who’d have thought! I normally avoid Walgreens at all costs, but somehow I see a few more visits there in my future this week. I did quite a few transactions and got:

Four Biore steam-activated cleansers ($4.19 each on clearance)
One Dickinson’s Witch Hazel ($4.49)
One PillGlide spray ($5)
Three Omega-3 pills ($10 each)
Two Reservatrol Max Dots ($10 each)
Two Finesse Clean + Simple ($1.99 each)
Two Children’s Oscillococcinum ($8.99 each)
Two Breathe Right Nasal Strips ($5 each)
Two Salonpas Arthritis patches ($6 each)
Three Papermate Mechanical Pencils ($0.19 each)

$120.59

I used :
4x $2/1 Biore Cleanser (10/10 SS)
2x $2/1 Oscillococcinum (printable)
2x $10/1 Reservatrol (Walgreens January coupon book)
2x Free Breathe Right (printed when I bought the Oscillococcinum, I think?)

$78.59 after coupons

I got back:
$5 Biore RR
$5 Biore RR
$5 PillGlide RR
$10 Omega-3 RR
$10 Omega-3 RR
$10 Omega-3 RR
$8 Oscillo RR
$8 Oscillo RR
$6 Salonpas RR
$6 Salonpas RR

and did two Finesse $1.99 rebates (one was bought by my mum and sent to her address) and a rebate for the witch hazel, making it free.

Total: $2.88 PROFIT!

I am a happy camper. 🙂 Walgreens deals will be posted tonight.

Oooh, good trip to Walgreens just now.

I got:
4x Vicks Sinex $5 each
2x Olay body bar two-pack $3.29 on BOGO 50% off

Total $24.94

Used 4x $4/1 Vicks Sinex from the 12/26 P&G insert and 2x $2/1 Olay bar from 12/26 P&G insert.

Paid $4.94 out of pocket and received a $10 RR. Total profit $5.06! And remember, you can use your Walgreens RR at Safeway since they’re manufacturer coupons. This is awesome for me because I only do Walgreens every couple of weeks, but I’m always at Safeway.

A very successful trip to Rite Aid!

Going back later in the week to see about doing a Nivea lip care deal, too. I have about $10 in UPR that are going to expire Saturday, so I’d better get a move on!

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!

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!


I won’t bother posting my deal scenario for these items since the sale is over tomorrow, but I got 12 packages of Hallmark wrapping paper, four L’Oreal Lash Boosting Mascaras, one Revlon Top Speed nail polish, one Garnier Herbashine and one Playdough play set for $6.99 profit. I also went back later and got three Crayola Pop Art Pixies kits for $0.37 each, normally $9.99. Very happy with Wags today.
