Couponing: 11/29/11 Rite Aid Deals



My beautiful pile from today's shopping trip to Rite Aid.  I rushed to organize this trip before the November Single Check Rebates closed today to get an additional $7 back detailed below.  Also mentioned are VV coupons which are the video value coupons by Rite Aid that you get by watching videos:

I did two transactions for two reasons but it wasn't necessary:
1) I wanted to make sure all the razor deal items went through correctly and
2) I knew I'd have a good amount of +UP rewards that I wanted to put towards my second transaction.

Transaction #1:
1 Fusion ProGlide Razor - Sale $9.99 - $5 coupon in PG 11/27 insert $4+UP = $.99

1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor Blade Refills 4ct - $17.49
1 Gillette Fusion Shave Gel - $4.79 = Free with purchase of razor blade refills above

1 Venus Embrace Razor - Sale $9.99 - $5 coupon in PG 11/27 insert $4+UP = $.99

1 Gillette Venus Embrace Razor Blade Refills 4ct - $15.49
1 Gillette Fusion Shave Gel - $4.79 = Free with purchase of razor blade refills above

The manufacturer coupon was for $5 off the purchase of the razor AND the refills so I hesitated to use it because of the price of the refills but then I saw they were having a deal where you got free shave gel with the purchase of the refills so that meant if I bought the refills then I was getting a $1 razor because I could use the coupon and free shave gel so it was worth spending some money to get the kit so cheap.  In addition, they had another promotion where you received $5 in +UP rewards for spending $25 on qualifying products for which this order fit in to making it even cheaper!


Total: $52.96

- $10 for 2 manufacturers coupons
- $13 +UP rewards you will receive
= $29.96 for $65.54 worth of shaving items (54% savings!)

Transaction #2
1 St. Joseph Aspirin 120ct - Sale $4.99 - $4+UP - $.99 (there is a $1 coupon available from September but I didn't have it)

1 Triaminic Children Cold Medicine - Sale $4.99 - $1 VV coupon - $1 printed coupon - $2+UP = $1

Total: $71.17

- $10 VV coupons ($6 above + $4 mentioned below)
- $20.25 manufacturers coupons (18.25 above + $1 below + $1 I can't account for!)
- $15 +UP rewards
- $7 SCR rewards
= $18.92 for $110 worth of items (83% savings - would've been 74% (~$10.50 more) if she hadn't missed charging me for two items)

I had "purchased" 2 Kleenex Tissues for 2/$5 and a double pack 10oz value pack of Opti-Free Replenish contact solution for over $10 BUT she didn't ring any of them in.  Oddly enough she still applied my coupons for $1 VV coupon for the tissues and $3 VV coupon & $2 clipped coupon for the contact solution so I ended up making money on those!  Hey, I did everything right, she even bagged them for me!  I didn't notice until I wrote up this post so I can not be responsible!


Note: These savings are available until 12/3 except for the SCR rewards, they expired today
