All this for $3.10 at Rite Aid!!

I am loving Rite Aid!! They have sales that you can use manufacturer coupons on. They have store coupons, both in-ad and printable. They have Single Check Rebates (SCR). They have UPS (which is like CVS' ECBS. . fake cash to use at Rite Aid). And they have Gift Cards they issue periodically when you spend a certain amount on predetermined items. You combine all those money saving options and you get items for FREE or pennies on the dollar.

I got all the below for $3.10!! Keep reading to see how you can do the same. These deals are good til tomorrow, Sat 9/25.


So I did 2 transactions. One key to working Rite Aid is to divide your items into $25 bundles, and use the $5 off $25 printable coupon on each bundle.

Transaction 1:
  • 2 Huggie diapers at 8.99
  • 2 boxes of Kotex pads at 3.50 each
  • pack of mechanical pencils that were 75% off so they were only 37 cents, but this got me to over $25
Used $5 off $25, use 2 of the $2.50 printables for the diapers, use $1 Rite Aid Huggie printable coupon, use 2 of $1 off coupons for the 8/8 SS. I also had $3 in UPS from last week. So my total was $10.85. . .but I got back 7 UPS (2 for each pack of diapers and 3 for the pads). Links to all these printables are here.

Transaction 2:
  • 1 pack of Huggie diapers at 8.99
  • 2 boxes of Kotex pads at 3.50 each
  • box of q-tips at 4.49 (needed these)
  • Crest toothpaste for 2.99
  • 3 packs of mechanical pencils and one index card pack for 37 cents each. . so that I would be over the $25 mark
Used $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon, $2.50 off Huggies printable, 2 of the $1 off Kotex pads from 8/8 SS, .75 for Crest from 8/29 PG, and the 7 UPS from transaction 1. And got the total down to $9.25 out of pocket.

But I got back 7 UPS to use next week and when I plug my receipts into riteaid.com, I will qualify for a $10 gift card. So that means you can really subtract $17 from my total out of pocket, which means I got all this for only $3.10.

Rite Aid is my new favorite store!! Did you go this week? Are you gonna try and squeeze a trip in tomorrow? I would love to know how you did.

And if you would like to learn all the ins and outs of Rite Aid, CVS, and Walgreens, you'll want to come to my once a year Drugstore Only Class. This class is being hosted by Bayleaf Baptist Church this year and is Tues, Oct 19th from 7-9pm. Details and registration can be found here.

  1. Su,
    I did 2 very similar transactions this week and it was great! And I love to shop the deals at Rite Aid. But the main problem I am having these days at Rite Aid is that some of the employees at the register don't know what an UP reward is when I am checking out. They get it confused with the Rite Aid coupons that sometimes come on the end of the receipt. So for example if they see $2 Up reward for buying Huggies, they look at my items and say, "You can't use this because you're not buying Huggies." I have had to explain the UP rewards to most of the people checking me out! It is so frustrating that they don't train their employees to recognize these! On the contrary everyone at CVS understands the ECBs.

  2. Hey Marty-

    Thanks for giving me a heads up. I have not had this happen at my Rite Aid. I assume since the UPS is a fairly new program, it is throwing some employees. . also kinda sad that employees are trained more in coupon fraud and what not to scan than what can be scanned, eh?
