As most of you know, Rite Aid is running their amazing “Winter Rewards” program again this month: Spend $100 on participating products through March 3rd, get a $20 +UP Reward. I thought I would take you along on my journey to reach $100, to see how little out of pocket I can spend and still reach the $100.
Out of pocket spent: Profit of $1.10
Received: $6 in +UP Rewards
Total spent towards “Resolution Rewards”: $12
Out of pocket spent: $.88
Still have: $6 in +UPs
Total spent towards “Resolution Rewards”: $20
Out of pocket spent: $3.41
Received: $10 +UP + still have $7.50 in +UPs from previous week
Total spent towards “Resolution Rewards”: $55
(2) Schick Hydro Shave Gel $2
Blink Gel Tears $7.99
Cars 2 Valentine’s Cards/Pencils on clearance $1
Physician’s Formula Youthful Wear Youth-Boosting Foundation $14.95
Physician’s Formula Gentle Cover Concealer Stick $3 (after 50% discount)
Used (2) $.75/1 Schick Hydro coupons from 2/26 SS insert
Used (2) $1/1 Physician’s Formula coupons from 2/12 SS insert
Used $1.50/2 Schick Hydro Rite Aid Video Values store coupon
Used $17.50 in +UPs from previous week
Out of pocket spent: $8.44
Received: $5 +UP for Physician’s Formula
Will submit for: $7.99 Blink Tears SCR and $14.95 Physician’s Formula mail-in rebate
Total spent towards “Resolution Rewards”: $67
After both rebates from this past week, I will have made a PROFIT of $11.31 while showing a total of $67 towards my “Winter Rewards”. Plus, I still have a $5 +UP Reward to use for my next transaction. I honestly wasn’t even going to try for it this week, as there just wasn’t enough stuff that qualified that we actually needed. I didn’t want to spend money we wouldn’t normally have spent just to get the reward. However, once I realized the Blink Tears were included, I knew I’d be going for it.
A few things to note. In order to submit for the Physician’s Formula rebate, you MUST find a product with the Try Me Free peelie on it. My store had several. Even though the Blink Tears weren’t listed as participating in the “Winter Rewards” promo, they were tagged in the store and counted on my receipt!
Here’s what I plan on doing:
(4) Tugaboos Jumbo Pack Diapers $8.99/$4.49
Tugaboos Jumbo Pack Diapers $7.19 after Wellness+ discount
Use $5 +UP from previous transaction
Out of pocket spent: $29.16
Will receive: $20 “Winter Rewards” +UP
Including all my previous transactions, this will put me at a total out of pocket cost of $17.85. When you factor in the $20 +UP Reward I will receive, I will have made a profit of $2.15. Please wrap your mind around the fact that this includes 5 packs of diapers, not to mention all the other goodies.
I’d love to hear about your shopping trips this week!
