I am so proud of me. I just never really understood Sluggy and her obsession ( yes obsession) with Rite -aid. We have one here but the prices for things I would buy are 1-2 dollars higher than Wal-mart. (beauty supplies, meds, paper products) But all of my makeup and face cream was running out as I left Florida and I needed to do a major fix up which would be a little spendy. I knew the prices at Wal- Mart so I decided to go into the Rite aid. I needed two Olay items that totaled over $35.00. They had buy one get one 1/2 off so that alone saved over Wal-mart. Okay Also buy one makeup get one 1/2 off and I needed 4 items. So the same thing. Then I really started to look at what I was doing when the clerk asked me if I had any coupons. I can get coupons? Yes off the internet. So I told her to hold my things as Rite aid is only 3 minutes from my house. I went home and sure enough there was a $2.00 and a $3.00 off coupon on the Olay products. So I printed the candy, the hair color, the fem hygiene and went back. Well all told I was able to get my hair touch up for about $1.50. $7.99-2.99coupon in sale flier-$1.50 coupon off internet- $1.00 coupon in store then I also receive up dollars.
When I was done I was able to accrue 14.00 in up rewards so take what I would have spent at Wal mart, for my 11 items approx. $106.00, what I spent at Rite aid $74.00 and then subtract $14.00 I saved $46.00. Hey this is the way to go. If I had known the program better I am sure I could have saved even more. I am sold.
This week I plan to do the cereal deal they have. 3 for 9, but I have $2.25 in coupon also $1.00 if you buy 3 so less $3.25 makes three boxes of cereal $5.75, then you get a free gallon of milk. Now those boxes of cereal cost $2.75.
It is the little things that count you know!
Thanks Sluggy you are the best!
