Hurrah for Rite Aid!

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!


  1. What are you going to do with all that milk? I miss it. :-) I made sure to help my mom plan a Walgreens trip while I was in California for my sister's wedding. Hope you guys are doing well. How much longer until the little guy shows up?

  2. Good to hear from you, my friend! We're doing well; I'm in Week 31 now. Just two more months!
    I, too, am going to miss all the bargain finding. I think we're stocked on bathroom tissue until the end of the year now, though... :o)
    As for the milk... (The cashiers asked a similar question!) I'm planning to make yogurt -- and I've already frozen two gallons. My experience with "brand name" milk is that it doesn't sour quickly, either.
    I miss you!
