I did 3 Transactions at Rite Aid today! Mostly, it was because I wanted the free toothbrushes. Is that sick or what?
I’m not going to break everything down for you, but it was kind of a combination of things in this post at Fistful of Coupons.
FREE toothbrushes. (I had a BOGO, a MC, and there is a $1 rebate)
All the makeup was FREE. I bet it is close to $75 in makeup! I don’t usually use Cover Girl, but I needed new mascara and bronzing powder anyway, and a girl can always use a back-up eyeliner, right? And, is there such thing as too much lipstick? I don’t think so. There was a BOGO coupon in this week’s paper (I buy 4 papers @ .99¢ each) and Rite Aid is having a BOGO sale, which = FREE stuff!
The travel size Renu was FREE. We don’t wear contacts, but my BIL does, so maybe he can use it. Otherwise, I’m sure I can find someone to donate it to!
The John Frieda Root Awakening shampoo and conditioner was FREE, and I’m making $5 on it through Rite Aid Rebates. Hee, hee!
I paid .74¢ for the 4 big packs of Starburst. Think Easter baskets . . .
Okay, so what did I actually pay for? The diapers. I bought them for a friend, and they are size 3 with 31 in each package. So, diapers cost me $7.95 and there are 62 diapers, total, which makes the diapers 12.8¢ each. I don’t really know how much diapers cost at Costco, but I did a little searching online and people are saying 18¢ each for the Kirkland brand (size 3). Does that sound about right?
Um, so does that mean that I just beat Costco? Yes, I believe it does.
Oh, but I actually kicked Costco’s butt!! See, this little purchase today should net me a $10 Rite Aid gift card. I’m expecting at least $16 back from Rite Aid for rebates, etc.
HA! Oh, I love this coupon stuff. Man, I wish I had found it when my kids were in diapers! Think of all the money I could have saved!
