Rite-Aid, 7/10-7/17

My ode to Melea J.!  Check out those nails sista; cruise-worthy I think!

I spent a couple of hours preparing for my shop last night.  I cut up my ad this morning and then headed out to the store only to realize that many of the items that I had planned on getting were not such a good deal.  I only found one good moneymaker deal and then several "dead end" deals.  LOL. 

Still, I made $10 on my two transactions and I now have about $40 worth of items to sell at my next garage sale.  I'm going to take a peek at next week's ad and see if the sales are better! 

Let me know if you found any good moneymaker deals this week.  Leave a comment so that all of us can benefit.  Thanks!

UP REWARDS: I started out with $30 in UP Rewards and I ended up with $33 in UP Rewards.  I will also be receiving $8.69 in rebates.

NOTE: The $2/1 Sally Hansen Q from the 6/12 RP is not scanning at the register.  There is no barcode to scan on the coupon; it is missing for some reason.  I explained this to the cashier and showed her the barcode from my other coupons and she input the coupons manually.  There should have been a barcode with a number below it that started with a "5."  Sally Hansen either forgot to input this barcode on their coupon or the printer forgot to print it on the coupon.   PS - the Sally Hansen tool Q can be used on any item/tool that is used to make you more beautiful.  YMMV on the use of this coupon, however, the way that beauty tools are defined in the cosmetic industry allows the use of this coupon on nail polish.


  1. Hi Kelly,
    Can you explain your Almay mascara deal? I don't understand how you can get 3 for .98 cents. I'm coming up with 3 for $4.98. Thanks!
    Hope you guys are doing well. Miss you!

  2. Hi Kelley, here's the breakdown:

    1 Almay $6.99
    1 Almay $6.99
    1 Almay $0
    = $13.98

    - use three $2/1 Almay Rite-Aid vv coupons
    - get $4 in UP Rewards
    - get three $1 rebates
    = $13 in coupons, UP Rewards and rebates

    Total = $.98 cents for all three

    Hope that helps!

    PS - YMMV on using the third vv coupon. Just depends upon the store.

  3. Surprised you didn't get the freeze off money maker after printable coupon and rebate. Does citrus heights have a coupon club? Can guys go?

  4. Hi Eric. I really wasn't that interested in the Compund W product. It's only a $1 moneymaker and you have to spend $10 in UPS to get it. I just wasn't that excited about it.

    Not sure if Citrus Heights has a coupon club. What exactly are you looking for? A place to learn about couponing? A place to talk shop about deals and couponing? What is your goal?

    We used to have a group of folks in Nashville that would talk shop from week to week and we had a couple of guys in it (inlcuding my husband who is a real pro at couponing).

    When did you start couponing? Are you new to the deals?

    PS - Have we met before somewhere?
