Surprise @ Rite Aid!

Time for my stops at the drug stores. I'm very lucky to live so close to two different drug stores, Rite Aid down the street & CVS all but 10 minutes away! Now if only there was a Walgreens closer. (Yes, I'm spoiled by the closeness of everywhere I shop.)

Sunday was my typical trip to CVS. I forgot to bring my camera along, so I couldn't do a picture book. That's okay it was busy any way. I'll have to find some time to go & get it done. I need to head back any way because they were out of the CVS pantyliners and I have one more deal left for the month. Let's see what I got . . .

Reinventing Beauty Magazine $.99
U by Kotex tampons $4.99
Total Before Coupons: $5.98

$1/1 Kotex Manufacture
$1.50/1 Kotex CVS coupon
-From the Beauty Magazine! The whole reason why I bought it. Best of all the coupons inside are CVS store coupons.That means I can double up with manufacture coupons! I'm hoping that I can get more use out of this one.
Total After Coupons: $3.48

$4.99 EB from Kotex purchase, limit 1
Net: $1.51 profit (+ $.25 green bag tag)

It's Monday, so that means a trip to Right Aid. I'm a little disappointed in this weeks ad. There really didn't seem to be much there, although I still ended up with 4 products free. I really got use to using $5 off $25 coupons, but there wasn't anything that wouldn't cost more out of pocket to bring my total up that high. I considered getting the Ducolax, between sale and combination of coupons it would have netted me about $2. They were out because of the sale from last week.

2 Nivea Men's Body Wash @ $1.99 each = $3.98
Reach Tooth Brush $3.99
Colgate Total Advance Toothpaste $3.00
Total Before Coupons: $10.97

$4/2 Nivea Body Care (Thanks to For The Mommas, see here)
$1/1 Reach product (I forget where I got this internet coupon)
$.75/1 Colgate (from Smile Talk)
Total After Coupons: $5.22

Received/Will Receive:
$1 +up Nivea
$1 +up Reach
$2.99 SCR Reach
$3 +up Colgate
$1 +up Nivea
-SURPRISE! Before you would only get one at the register, now you get two? I had two different scents, so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it. I'm happy that it's split up and not lumped together like CVS extra bucks. (Lumping multiples of the same offer together makes it more difficult to spend.) I wonder if this will continue
Net: $3.77 profit

Here are both of the $1 +up Rewards

Here both Nevias are on that same receipt.

If I were to exclude the +up rewards I would have spent $2.23 for all the products. As I've stated before I don't like the direction this is going. I hope I can soon turn those +up rewards back into cash via single check rebates. I'm going to spend some time today looking over the monthly rebate flier to get some ideas.


  1. Naughty Target! Bad, Bad, Bad...They really need to get their act together at Target!

  2. LOL. Some how your comment about my Target trip ended up over in the previous post.
