This seems to be the season for deals at Rite Aid – especially if stores in your vicinity are remodeling and have reduced many items by 50%!
I ended up going to one store for the Huggies diapers deal and then to two other stores for the bathroom tissue deal. (I was told by one manager that Rite Aid will be merging with Save-a-Lot.) The up side of the remodeling is the 50% off! The down side is that some items are out of stock. That was the case when I went looking for the bathroom tissue deal today.
I ended up modifying my hopeful scenario, finding reduced items for which I also had coupons in order to use the $5 off $25 purchase Rite Aid coupon at the first store, and then buying the rest of the bathroom tissue needed to complete that deal (and qualify for $10 in rebates!) at the second store.
The end result was all of this for only $8.73 – after coupons, store rewards, rebates, discounts, and a $10 gift card from an earlier diaper deal!
If I had remembered to stack another $0.50 coupon and use the $2.00 +UP Rewards from the diaper deal, I could have reduced the "out of pocket" by that much more!
And the manager at one store told me to check back next week for even more deals!
