Rite Aid December Video Values Coupons


The coupons in RED are multiple use/print coupons. (Rite Aid Video Values only allows you to choose to print the coupon one time. You can not go back and choose to print it again later. That being said, when you originally choose to print the coupon a print screen will pop up. On that print screen it has a place for you to type in how many times you want the page printed. (NOTE that the coupon is good for 2 months.) While all the Video Values coupons will print more than once. Some have a unique barcode that will only allow you to use the coupons once. Others can still be used more than once. The rule is - long barcode = only 1 use; short barcode = multiple uses.) For more information, please read my post HERE.

December's Video Value coupons are here!

Giant Eagle (ends Wednesday)

Here are the highlights for this week. If you see any other fantastic deals, let me know.

  • Giant Eagle's ad runs from Thursday to Wednesday.
  • My GE doubles all coupons up to $0.99.
  • Don't forget to load your GE card with Giant Eagle's EOffers and with e-coupons from Shortcuts andCellfire. (If the same coupon is on more than one site, only load one at a time. After you have redeemed/used the first coupon, then go back and load the next. If you load both to your card, you will loose one of them.)
  • Be careful with the CAT deals. If you do two of the same CAT deals in the same transaction, the CAT may not print. Check your ad to make sure that you separate like CAT deals into separate transactions.
  • Remember, you can order coupons that you don't have from a CouponClippingService.
These are the Giant Eagle deals that I see this week: (Obviously, anything that is FREE is a great deal.)

Make sure you have loaded the eOffers (exp. 12/25)! I know that sometimes they don't work when you purchase the item--printing each page after you have clipped the coupons will work as evidence at customer service. Hopefully they will give you the value of the coupon as a post-sale coupon redemption. Have them initial if after use. This has been working!!!

Giant Eagle

Hi everyone.....this is your friendly neighborhood Giant Eagle blogger! I just want to let you know that Thanksgiving has really thrown me off my game....so much so that I might not get the Giant Eagle post up till Monday. It should be a pretty good week, and I'll try to work on it tonight. Thanks for your patience!

Rite Aid Deal and Transaction Scenarios 11/28 to 12/4

 

New to Rite Aid shopping? Visit the RiteAid page for more information.

Print out EXTRA $5 off any purchase of $25 or more coupons HERE (exp. 12/31/10). Coupons will be blurry at first. Give them a minute to finish loading.

All my scenarios will reflect my personal goal to either make money or at least not to have spent any at the end of the month - after I get my Single Check Rebate, Rite Aid gift cards, and/or MIR checks.

**Unless otherwise indicated, there is a limit of one single check rebate per item.

Thanksgiving week was a very busy week for us. I didn't get out to my regular stores AT ALL. We ended up driving out of town (on a short vacation) Thanksgiving evening.

Just to let you all know, I'm currently still on vacation and expect to put out another scenario later. Just wanted to get this out for all of you so that you could start getting ready for next week.

So far, I've only had one $1 +UP Reward expire on me. Somehow I put it in the wrong place and didn't find it again (or even realize it was missing) for a month. I was disappointed when I found it, but on the other hand, it was bound to happen sometime and I figured $1 is not too bad. I'm sure that I'll loose more than that at some point in time. How are you all doing with the +UPs?


Purchase #1

1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor (pg. 1) $9/1
- $4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide, exp. 12-31-10 (P&G 11/28/10) = $5/1
- $5 +UP Reward (limit 3) = FREE

1 Organix Shampoo or Conditioner (pg. 15) $5.99/1
- $2 +UP Reward = $3.99/1
- "Try Me Free Hangtags" (on product) = MAKE $2

1 Dial Hand Soap (pg. 17) $0.99/1
- $0.35/1 Dial Bar Pack or Liquid Hand Soap, exp. 11-28-10 (RP 10/10/10) = $0.64/1
- 1/1 Dial Hand Soap (Rite Aid Booklet) = FREE or MAKE $0.36

2 Sundown Vitamins and Supplements (pg. 18) B1G1 (starting at $3.49/1) = $3.49/2
- 2 $1/1 Sundown & Marvel Vitamins, exp. 12-21-10 (RP 11/07/10; Printable) = $1.49/2
[or $2/1 Sundown Naturals Supplement, exp. 12-24-10 (Kroger Insert, 10/24) = FREE or MAKE $1.51]
- $1/1 Sundown Product Nov. RA VV coupon = $0.49/2

2 Lysol Disinfectant Spray (pg. 21) $7/2
- 2 $1/1 Lysol Disinfectant Spray, exp. 12-07-10 (SS 11/07/10) = $5/2
- $1/1 Finish or Lysol Product Nov. RA VV coupon = $4/2
- 2 $2/1 Lysol Spray (Rite Aid Booklet) = FREE
- $1 +UP Reward wyb 2 = MAKE $1

Total before coupons at least $26.47
- $5/$25 RA VV coupon
- $15.35 (in MFC and RA coupons)
Total OOP $6.12 + tax (Remember to use previously earned +UP Rewards to reduce your OOP.)
- $5.99 MIR (hangtag) = $0.13
earn $5 +UP Reward from Gillette
earn $2 +UP Reward from Organix
earn $1 +UP Reward from Lysol
(like MAKEing $7.87 on this scenario)


If I roll the +UP Rewards from one transaction to the next, I will end up paying a total of $6.12 OOP for products with a sale value of $26.47 (that is if I didn't have any +UP Rewards from previous weeks . . . which, of course, I did). I will have earned $0 in SCRs which will get sent to me in check form (that I can cash at the bank) at the end of the month. I will receive a MIR check for $5.99. And I will have $8 in +UP Rewards left for other purchases this week or next. That's like MAKEing $7.78 on products with a sale value of $26.47!

You can see the rest of the Rite Aid coupon matchups for this week here.

CVS Recall - Reusable Bags

I'm posting this just in case any of you have one of these bags:

CVS is recalling just one of their reusable bags (pictured below) due to a high lead content in the paint on the bag. (The "Green Bag Tag" is not being recalled.) The bag should be returned to CVS for a full refund.


Or read the full story HERE.

Last Week's Shopping Trips

I made it to Giant Eagle last Wednesday night (somehow I always manage to make it to the store on the very last day of the sale). Anyway, it was a decent week. You can see what I bought below. I did 4 transactions. Because I had a lot of CATs left from last week, I used them to cover my OOP costs. I paid less than $1 OOP for each transaction. I still have CATs left over from last week and I earned some new ones this week.  Let's see how long I can keep this going. . . . knowing GE, it won't be too long.

I didn't have any coupons for the cranberry sauce or the bread. The cranberry sauce was on sale ($1/1) and I wanted it. The bread was not on sale; we needed it.


Then Saturday night, I finally made it to Rite Aid. My Rite Aid did price match the diapers (I called ahead - just to make sure).  They were happy to do it.

The cat food I added just because we can always use cat food and I had a $1/1 coupon AND I noticed it was on sale for $4.99 AND there was a $1/1 +UP Reward on it. (I went back and checked my ad and could not find it advertised anywhere -  either in last week or this week's ad. The +UP printed just fine . . . in case anyone was wondering.)

The SOBE water is there because I got a FREE SOBE coupon in the mail this week - from when I was playing the SOBE game every day trying to stock up on coupons to use at CVS.

AND as you can see, I had a whole bunch of Herbal Essences/Aussie coupons. Right before I walked out the door to RA, it dawned on me that they would be FREE after coupon if you paired 10 of them with a $5/$25 coupon - and that was if you had $0.50/1 coupons.


I also took in 2 things to return/rebuy (one was the wrong item; the other I needed on a separate receipt for a MIR - neither are pictured) and a pile of receipts to get "fixed."

This is where I'd like to stop and stress how important it is to get to know your RA employees (or any employees at a store you frequent). Treat them like they are real people. Take the time to talk to them. Over time, get to know their likes and dislikes, ask about their families, their jobs, etc. Build a relationship. Why "waste" all that time? There are two very good reasons that this is NOT a waste of time.
          1. You never know when God will use you to minister to the people around you. You will have more opportunity for the gospel if you've been actively working on building relationships. In addition, you'll know better how to pray for your friends and how to encourage them.
          2. You will get better service. This may seem very self serving, but it is true. I would have never been able to get all my receipts "fixed" if the employees didn't know me. On one of the receipts I bought 2 toothbrushes with a raincheck. Only, I was charged for 3 toothbrushes - 2 were on a raincheck and 1 was rung up at full price. Because I knew the cashier and I have shown consistency in shopping habits, he quickly refunded the price of the 3rd toothbrush . . . which I didn't actually buy. On another receipt, I'd bought 3 Huggies diapers, but coupons had only been scanned on 2. I know that I gave the cashier 3 Huggies coupons, but she only scanned 2 (accidentally). I also know that I didn't get any Huggies coupons back, which means they all went into RA's drawer (ie, RA got reimbursed for them). Once again, the cashier Saturday night knew me and my shopping habits. He knew that I would not have bought the diapers without a coupon. Because he couldn't figure out how to do a post coupon sale without the coupon . . . he signed my receipt and told me to use it as a coupon the next time I came in (ie. show it to the cashier to get $3 off any transaction.). What the cashier/manager did for me Saturday night is not in RA policy. He was not required to do that. But he did, because he knows me and trusts that I am telling him the truth.

PLEASE NOTE: I have been shopping that RA almost every single week for over a year now. It takes time to build a relationship. Give it time. Do not demand that cashiers/managers give you special treatment - earn it. They will give it when you've earned it. Be genuine. Flattery is not genuine. And most importantly, take every opportunity to minister that God gives you.

Print you coupon here.
This coupon doesn't expire until December 24.

Rite Aid Deal and Transaction Scenarios 11/21 to 11/27

 

New to Rite Aid shopping? Visit the RiteAid page for more information.

Print out EXTRA $5 off any purchase of $25 or more coupons HERE (exp. 12/31/10). Coupons will be blurry at first. Give them a minute to finish loading.

All my scenarios will reflect my personal goal to either make money or at least not to have spent any at the end of the month - after I get my Single Check Rebate, Rite Aid gift cards, and/or MIR checks.

**Unless otherwise indicated, there is a limit of one single check rebate per item.

I loved Rite Aid last week. Cheap diaper weeks are always good!! And the shampoo deal wasn't bad either - a slight money maker after all coupons and +UP Rewards wyb 10 in one transaction.

If you have to call corporate about your +UP Rewards or SCRs make sure that you do that as soon as you get home . . . or if you are like me and don't have a quiet moment when you get home to do it, at least make sure to jot down an appropriate comment at the top of your receipt - and then place it in a pre-designated location for "Rite Aid Receipts Needing Attention."   : )
