Well, I dug out of the snow in time to get to Rite Aid before my +Up rewards expired! Yay! I would certainly hate to lose $18 in rewards. Anyway, I had a really great trip. I am never disappointed with my Rite Aid adventures. While they are sometimes out of the really good deals, it is never something that I really need. I did 2 transactions, planning to use the $10 reward for the Aveeno deal to help pay for the 2nd transaction. Well, when I did my first transaction, The $10 reward did not print. Since my cashier thought that she was going to have to get help from someone to try and correct it, I went on with my 2nd transaction, and paid cash. This is what I bought.
4 Stayfree @ 2.50 used 2 BOGO Q's & (1) $1 off Q. Cashier credited $3 each for BOGO's
4 Special K @4.79 BOGO used 2 BOGO Q's Cashier credited 4.49 each.
2 Axeeno Baby Wash @ 5.69 used (2) $1 q's & (2) $1 in-ad q's. Received 10% discount (5.12 ea)
1 each Aveeno Shampoo & Conditioner @ 5.99 used (2) 1.50 q's
1 Aveeno Face Scrub @ 7.99 used $2 Q & $1 in-ad Q Received 10% discount (7.19)
2 Zicam Cold Sore Swabs @ 3.25 (on clearance from 12.99) used (2) $2 Q's
1 Blink Eye Drops @ 7.99
1 Breathe Right Strips @ 3.99 Used $2 Video Values Q 1 Gain Dish Detergent @ 89¢ Used $1 Q
I also used my $4 off $20 purchase Video Values Q.
The total before any sales and coupons was 113.42. I started with $18 +Up rewards and also used (1) $1 +Up reward that I got today. I paid 12.74 plus tax out of pocket, for a total of 16.60. I have $22 in +Up rewards I will receive 7.99 SCR for the Blink. So after the rebate my total will be 1.75 plus tax. That's a savings of 98%.
As it turned out, the reason that I did not get the $10 +Up reward on the Aveeno was that I got a 10% discount on a couple of items, which brought the amount below the $25 required purchase. I had to have it refunded and then I re-purchased it, along with one more item. But it all worked out.
