Rite-Aid 9/30

So, I too am still trying to get a hang of the UP rewards system that Rite-Aid has implemented.  I really loved the SCR program because it was cash in my pocket that I could use anywhere, not just Rite-Aid.  Unfortunately, the UP's can only be used at Rite-Aid...but the upside is that they can be used like RA cash 5 seconds after they print out for waiting.

So this was transaction last was early in the morning...this working full-time thing forced me to make my trip at 7:30 in the morning...luckily I just followed the list and didn't have to think much. :)  I did this all in one transaction...I should've left out the Head & Shoulder's because 1) I didn't realize until I got home that it was the conditioner. not the shampoo, and 2) I was already at my $25 threshold to be able to use my $5/25 but kept forgetting about a toothbrush, thereby making my total just under what I needed...except not really.  Oh well...the H&S will be donated, as will the oatmeal.

(2) Mom's Best Oats @ .99 (on clearance, normally $1.99), so $1.98 total

     -$1/1 found in All You magazine
Final Price: $3.94

UPDATE: Unbeknownst to me because it wasn't labeled in the store, there was a $1 SCR on Tom's deoderant.  So in reality, I only paid $2.94 which is a great price!

     -10% discount was also applied to this since it wasn't on sale
     -$3/1 Renpure product found HERE

These should've rung up at $1.99..but I didn't catch it until just it's too late to do anything about them.  Oops....

UPDATE: Also unbeknownst to me, there was a $1 SCR on the Tum's as well...making them a .31 cents moneymaker!

Used $5/25 purchase
Used $4.50 in UP rewards
Received $5 in UP rewards
Receiving $2 in SCR and $3 MIR

Total before coupons & store savings: $39.91
Total after coupons but before UP's & rebates (a.k.a OOP): $6.29
Total after everything: $3.71 moneymaker!  Rite-Aid PAID me to take all of this...they're so nice. :)
Savings: Through the roof!
