5TH UPDATE: Rite-Aid, 1/30-2/5











































































Well, it's been a crazy week at Rite-Aid.  I just couldn't stay away from the stores this week.  There were just too many moneymakers.  It's a good thing too because next week looks pretty slim to me (at least for the stuff that I buy).  Many of these items will be going into my garage sale box so that I can make enough money to pay for my other groceries.  I had fun being in the stores this week.  My cashiers are all getting to know me pretty well and I am really enjoying spending time with them every week.  What a great group of people!

1ST SHOP: Quick shop at Rite-Aid this afternoon to pick up some Finish detergent, Planter's peanuts and the Dixie plates.  I threw the other items into my shop because they were moneymakers.  Paid $0 out of pocket. This was a small shop so I've taken the time to provide the details in case you want to shop this week.  :) 

2ND UPDATE: Made another stop at Rite-Aid today to pick up a few deals that I have read about on various websites.  A couple of them were moneymakers (Osteo, Hormel, KY, Hartz, and Coricidin).  Made another $20 today and added a few more things to my stockpile.

3RD UPDATE: Had to run out last night to pick up my free coffee from Cost Plus (from the deal almost 2 months ago; certificates were expiring last night).  Spotted a Rite-Aid on the way home and pulled in to grab a few more items.

4TH UPDATE: I ventured out this morning (Saturday) to spend some time with Anna H. We walked the aisles and talked a little about couponing and had a great time picking up a few things.  She is ready to learn the ropes about couponing and I'm eager to teach someone "live in person."

5TH UPDATE: We went out for free museum day today and stopped at a Rite-Aid on the way home to pick up a few more Prilosec boxes for my friend Carissa.  She just gave birth to a new baby girl and she hasn't been able to venture out lately.  Congratulations Carissa!  We couldn't be more ecstatic for you guys.  The store that I went to just received their shipment and because they are a slow store they were stocking the shelves on a Saturday instead of a Monday like most of the stores in the area.  I asked the clerk at the store if they had any more of the Lay's Stax chips because my church is trying to replenish their snacks for the children.  I picked up a few more containers!

TOTAL: $832.93
TOTAL AFTER COUPONS AND REBATES:  -$40 Moneymaker
SAVINGS: over 105%



NEURAGEN GEL: I will submit two rebates for the Neuragen Gel (one for myself and one on my mom's address).  I still have $76 in UP Rewards to roll next week.

GIFTS FOR CASHIERS: I gave one of the Chex Mixes to one of my cashiers and two of the Jif Peanut Butter to my other cashier.  I also gave one of the Lay's Stax to my cashier today (Saturday).

AFRIN COUPON: The Afrin coupon beeped but the cashier pushed it through.  It does not beep on the colored boxes (purple, blue, etc) but it does beep on the white boxes.

LIMITATIONS ON UP REWARDS: I had to separate my transactions because of the limit on the number of UP's that can print on one receipt.  I thought I read that 20 was the limit but I can't remember.

CORICIDIN LIMIT: They would only allow me to purchase 3 of the Coricidin's because of the limitation they put on certain kinds of medicine.  I purchased the 4th one on a different card.

UP REWARDS: Started with $78 UPS and ended up with $101 UPS.  I rolled my UP Rewards for all of these transactions and made money in the process.  Did not have to pay the tax as I still have money on my gift card.

SUAVE SHAMPOO - I found several different prices for the Suave Shampoos.  Try and find the cherry shampoo for the best savings.  Seems they are on a special clearance price for $.69 cents.  Have them check the price at the register before you purchase to ensure they ring up correctly.

NOT PICTURED - The Dreyers and the Dixie Plates were given to my friend Anna; she needed them for a birthday party!

  2. Goodness sakes! I am so impressed all the time. I am going to have my mother-in-law start checking your blog to see if she can do as well - it's about the only place in Seattle she could coupon this heavily. Love you and miss you! (and I got your gift for James, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU)

  3. Hey Kel!

    GREAT JOB once again!!! Though, I thought you had quit?!? The wind beneath my sails was getting sucked dry and I've been losing motivation to coupon because you were so inspirational! But are you back Sister? This might change things for sure! Hope you had a great time with your MIL and BIL. Missed you yesterday... Have fun tomorrow night! Love to you GF! Josie : )

  4. Ugh since we moved from MS to CA I just can't seem to get myself back into te swing of things..and there are like 48281 RA's around here. Maybe I will try to go in tomorrow and see what is left. Probably not much, but maybe. I hope next week is as good as this one was. Nice to see you giving the breakdowns, love that!! Now to just get off my rear and buy a paper or two!! Nice Savings!!

  5. Hey Josie. I missed you tonight at the "meal planning" meeting. It was so fun to see everyone; what a great bunch of women. Love you!

    Melissa, your welcome. I hope he enjoys them as much as Sydney has enjoyed her Robeez. She loves walking in those shoes. :)

    Navy, if they are out of stock just get an awesome raincheck. Next week's ad looks a little lame to me. :( This week is amazing though.

  7. Yeah! I'm so glad. Free dishwashing detergent is always good. BTW, did you know that you can register more than one email address at Rite-aid for the video values accounts (i.e. you can print one video value coupon per account). I have four accounts because we have four email addresses (one for each person in our family). Just an FYI...
