Rite Aid - Eco Tools

I was very happy to learn about a MM for the week. To bad the two stores I visited didn't have the stock I needed to make that work out. The first store was out of anything that could be combined to even make the items free. I was kind of sad about this as I only arrived about one hour after the store opened!? This store usually has terrible stock for sale items. I don't understand why.

I did get my newspapers there and the free tube of toothpaste. I only got one, because I wasn't sure how many I could get. (I read somewhere it's three, but working for four?) Did you know you get a discount on Newspapers? I thought for sure something like that would be excluded. You better believe if I am off on Sunday Rite Aid is going to be the place to get my Sunday papers from now on. I only buy three or four, but every little bit helps and maybe next year I can reach the Gold level.

The second store at least had better stock, but not much left. Only one of the MM items were left. I paired it with something else to get them free, otherwise it was a loss. I'm not exactly sure but I still ended up with a slight MM. Typing up the transaction I see where I miscalculated. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that their truck will bring in loads of stock and maybe on Friday I can grab some more stuff. (Here's hoping.)
