New to Rite Aid shopping? Visit the RiteAid page for more information.
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.
This is the FIRST week to earn/qualify for the extra $20 +UP Reward wyb $100 worth of select "Winter Rewards" items. It's the FIRST week for February's SCRs. And new Video Values coupons are out.
Compared to last week, this is going to be a slow week at Rite Aid . . . but that's good 'cause next week doesn't look too slow! Also, I don't currently see any spectacular moneymaking deals. This week I'm planning on picking up a few FREE things and using some of the many +UPs I earned last week to "buy" some things that are a good deal.
4 GE Soft White Light Bulbs (pg. 12) 4 pk. $1.99/1 = $7.96/4
- 4 $1.99 +UP Reward (Limit 6) = FREE
($7.96 towards $20 +UP Reward wyb $100 of specially marked products)
Total before coupons $7.96
Total OOP $7.96 + tax (Remember to use previously earned +UP Rewards to reduce your OOP.)
earn (4) $1.99 +UP Rewards from GE
(like getting everything for FREE in this scenario)
2 GE Soft White Light Bulbs (pg. 12) 4 pk. $1.99/1 = $3.98/2
- 2 $1.99 +UP Reward (Limit 6) = FREE
($3.98 towards $20 +UP Reward wyb $100 of specially marked products)
2 Starburst Single Serve Candy (pg. 1) $1/2
- $0.50/2 Skittles or Starburst Printable = $0.50/2
- $0.25/1 Starburst Singles Jan. RA VV coupon = $0.25/2
- $0.25/1 Starburst Singles Feb. RA VV coupon = FREE
(NOTE: I forgot about the Feb. VV coupon, this will make your OOP $0.25 less!)
1 Pepperidge Farm (pg. 12) 2.8-4 oz. $10/10 = $1/1
- $1/1 Pepperidge Farm Cookies Printable (If these are included.) = FREE
4 Progresso Soup (pg. 11) 18.5 to 19 oz. $6/4
- $1/4 Progresso Soup, exp. 1-29-11 (GM 12/05/10) = $5/4
[or $1/4 Progresso Soup, exp. 02-13-11 (GM 10/03/2010)]
[or $1/4 Progresso Soup, exp. 2-26-11 (GM 01/02/11)]
[or $1/4 Progresso Soup, exp. 3-12-11 (SS 01/16/11)]
[or $0.50/2 Progresso Light Soup, exp. 3-1-11 (Weight Watchers, Sept)]
- $1/2 Progresso Soups Jan. RA VV coupon = $4/4
(NOTE: If your husband/wife has a VV account, use 2 coupons = $2/4)
- $1 +UP Reward wyb 4 = $3/4
($6 towards $20 +UP Reward wyb $100 of specially marked products)
Total before coupons $11.98
- $3.75 (in MFC coupons)
- $7.96 in +UP Rewards from Purchase #1
Total OOP $0.27 + tax
earn (2) $1.99 +UP Reward from GE
earn $1 +UP Reward from Progresso
(like everything in this scenario COSTing $3.25)
Purchase #3 (This scenario assumes you have 20% Wellness+ discount. If you don't want this product, don't do this transaction. Purchasing 7 Viactiv next week, with or without 20% discount, will get you to your $50 for the Heart Healthy +UP.)
3 Nature Made CoQ10 (pg. 3) Softgels 30 mg. 30 ct. ($13.04/1 - online price) ($39.12/3)
- 20% Wellness+ discount = $31.32/3
- 3 $5/1 Nature Made CoQ10, exp. 1-31-11 (SS 01/02/11 #2) = $16.32/1
[or $5/1 Nature Made CoQ10, exp. 5-31-11 (ALL YOU Jan '11)]
- $16 +UP Reward wyb $30 = $0.32/3
- $5 MIR Nature Made Purchase, exp. 3-18-11 (SS 01/16/11; Printable) = FREE or MAKE $4.68
($31.32 towards Heart Healthy $20 +UP wyb $50 or $10 +UP wyb $30 of select products)
Total before coupons $31.32
- $15 (in MFC coupons)
- $4.98 in +UP Rewards from Purchase #2
Total OOP $11.34 + tax
- $5 MIR = $6.34 + tax
earn $16 +UP Reward from Nature Made
(like MAKEing $4.68 on this scenario)
If I roll the +UP Rewards from one transaction to the next, I will end up paying a total of $19.57 (or $8.23 without purchase #3) OOP for products with a sale value of $51.26 (or $19.94 without purchase #3) (that is if I didn't have any +UP Rewards from previous weeks . . . which, of course, I do). 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 (or $0 without purchase #3). And I will have $16 in +UP Rewards (or $4.98 without purchase #3) left for other purchases this week or next. That's like MAKEing $1.43 on products with a sale value of $51.26 (or COSTing $3.25 on products with a sale value of $19.94 without purchase #3)!
