Rite Aid has simply ROCKED lately.
I had a $20 +UP reward burning a hole in my pocket (with an impending expiration date that was stressing me out), so I had to come up with a scenario that would net me some good stuff and at the same time would pay me back. Get it? Rolling the +UP Rewards!
This is what I picked up this morning:
Yes, it’s true that no one NEEDS Doritos, however we rarely buy chips, so this is a big treat! The bags expire in May, so I think we are set for a while. They are 2/$5, and you get a $5 +UP when you spend $15, plus every 2 that you buy nets you a $1 +UP. So, $15 OOP (or, use old +UPs), and get $8 back. I also used a $3/15 coupon that I earned by taking the survey at the bottom of a receipt. Those are so cool! Essentially, the chips were $4 for 6 bags, but I like to think of them as FREE.
The Little Remedies medicine is $3.99, but you get a $3 +UP back, so it’s like spending 99¢. If you have a coupon (which I missed), it could be free! However, this is a great way to recycle +UPs. I may go back for more.
This is what I did last Saturday. Obviously these deals won’t work this week. A note on the tuna (for my fellow couponers): last week they were Buy 1 @ $1.49, get one 50% off, plus it was supposed to print 2 $1 +UPs. Well, my store was completely out when I went earlier in the week. Apparently, our store manager ordered more tuna, however, while we were waiting for the tuna to arrive Rite Aid pulled the $1 +UP. This created an uproar, apparently, so they changed their minds. Sheesh. But, by then all of the couponers had already done their Rite Aid deals and my store was stuck with an overstock. I was able to get the deal at the last minute (Saturday night). I like to think I helped the store. LOL!
There was a BOGO sale on the Hersheys and a BOGO coupon, which made all of the chocolate free.
The plate deal is even better this week than it was last week. (Doh!)
Can you believe that I did not step foot in Safeway last week? Or, if I did, I don’t remember it. (Mommy brain, I’m sure!)
However, I saved money by NOT shopping, and besides, I am so stocked up it’s crazy. I may head to Safeway tomorrow, for basics (milk, eggs, cheese, etc), but I’m not seeing much. Are you??
