There is a LOT going on this week in the way of free items, Single Check Rebates and +UP Rewards. Enough to make a coupon shopper’s head spin, especially if you’re not super comfortable with Rite Aid shopping yet.
Here’s my shopping plan for Sunday, in case you need a little inspiration. Of course, you can swap in and out items you need or don’t need, but this should give you a good idea of where to start. I do have my 20% Wellness+ discount, so I am factoring that in as well.

(4) Rite Aid Hand Sanitizer $1
(2) M&M’s Fun Size or Snack Size Candy $2

Use $17.99 in +UP Rewards from previous transaction
Pay $4.18, Submit for $10.99 in SCR and get $8 in +UP Rewards
Total spent after Single Check Rebates: $16.85 + still have $8 in +UP Rewards to spend
This is like paying $8.85 for over $75 worth of product, including a pack of diapers!
You may have noticed that I didn’t include all the free items in my scenario. I only chose items that our family will for sure use because I will pay tax on everything in these scenarios, making the “free” items not quite free (Note: Melody lives in Washington and is charged sales tax on the free-after-rebate items).
If you are trying to put together your own scenario, one of my tips would be to start at the end. I did my third transaction first with all the Single Check Rebate offers I was going to take advantage of. This way I could “cash in” my +UP Rewards that I earned in previous transactions.
Please share your scenarios and shopping plans, I’m sure everyone could benefit from your ideas!
And if you’re wanting to start playing Rite Aid, but need some direction, be sure to attend Sunday evening’s Advanced Couponing Class. There is still room!
