It’s been awhile since I’ve been barreling out the door on Sunday morning to get to Rite Aid. I’m all about a great diaper deal, so I was at my store right when they opened the doors. It helps that my local store is a stone’s throw from my house.
First of all, I wanted to give you an update on the diaper deal. It appears that the wipes are NOT counting towards the monthly +UP Reward. However, the registers seem to be rounding up on diaper purchases so buying 3 packs of diapers at $9.99 will still trigger the weekly +UP Reward.
Here’s what this looks like:
Pampers Jumbo Pack Diapers or Easy-Ups on sale $9.99
Spend $25, Get $5 +UP Reward – limit 2 (monthly, through 3/6)
Spend $30, Get $10 +UP Reward – limit 1 (from weekly ad)
Use (3) $1.50/1 Pampers coupons
Pay $25.47, Get $15 in +UPs
$3.49 each after coupons and rewards
*Around $.09/diaper for size 3
For some reason, my Pampers coupons wouldn’t scan at all. My local manager pointed out that this is the first time EVER that P&G has released printable coupons. I hadn’t even thought about that, as they are generally released in the newspaper. She did mention that they received a bulletin about the coupons and that they are legitimate, so she happily accepted them.
Here is what my personal shopping trip looked like:
(3) Pampers Jumbo Pack Diapers $9.99
(4) Arm & Hammer Toothpaste $3.99 (2 rang up free)
(2) Orajel Toddler Toothpaste $3.99 (1 rang up free)
(2) Softlips Singles $1.59 after Wellness+ discount
Used (3) $1.50/1 Pampers coupons
Used $1/1 Orajel coupon
Used (2) $1.50/2 coupon
Used $1/1 Toothpaste Rite Aid Video Values store coupon (March)
Used $3/1 Softlips Rite Aid store coupon from weekly ad
Total spent out of pocket: $32.62
Received: $10 Pampers +UP, $5 Pampers monthly +UP, $5 Oral Care +UP and $3 Softlips +UP
After factoring in the +UP Rewards I received, this is like paying $3.21 for each pack of diapers and getting everything else for FREE.
The Softlips was a much higher moneymaker than I thought. I initally thought the in-ad coupon would automatically deduct the purchase price of one, which is $1.59. Instead it took $3 off my total purchase, which I didn’t notice until I got home. I ended up paying $.18 for both and getting a $3 +UP Reward. I’m honestly not sure what the protocol on their store coupons is in this case.
I can’t wait to hear about your shopping trips this week, there are some fabulous deals to be had!
