Rite Aid Recap

It was my first week taking Rite Aid a little more seriously and trying to take advantage of all their deals. I'm very excited because it's my first week where I will MAKE money for "buying" items there! Here are my totals for the week for everything in the two pictures:

$132.68 Rite Aid Retail before sales, coupons and rebates
- $40.96 in sales
- $54.25 in coupons
$37.47 total after coupons and sales
- $10 +Up rewards (which I already used since I did multiple transactions)
$27.47 total OOP
- $14.93 GIFT CARD remaining ($25 originally) from transfering a prescription
** $12.47 my actual out of pocket cost for everything in the two pictures!! **

Rebates/ Gift Cards Earned:
- $5 P&G gift card rebate
- $3 Reach toothbrush rebate
- $2 Secret deodorant rebate
- $5 Duracell battery rebate
Seriously?? They are paying me for everything in the two pictures, PLUS I have almost "spent" $25 towards their skin care rebate, which will get me another $10 gift card and a bonus $5 for using their Wellness program. Why did I not start shopping at Rite Aid sooner?

Here's everything Rite Aid paid me to "buy" this week:
6 packages of Duracell batteries
5 Crest toothpaste
3 Oral B toothbrushes
2 pk of Reach toothbrushes
2 small Aveeno lotion
1 large Aveeno lotion
1 Lubriderm lotion
2 Secret deodorants
2 Old Spice body wash

Shopping the deals at Rite Aid definitely takes a lot of planning- I make a list before I go to the store listing what I plan to buy and how much they will be after discounts and coupons and have all my coupons for each transaction in a paper clip. I usually grab a couple extra coupons in case I need to make a switch at the last minute. It's definitely more work than some other stores, but the fact that I can MAKE MONEY for buying everyday items makes it worth it to me. These are all things that we can use or that I can donate or give to friends and family to use.

Have you started shopping at Rite Aid? What have you been able to do?
