Rite Aid Trip

This is by far my best purchase. I left the store on a high and hit the gym! Well, first I called my Jedi Master of Coupons, Nichole and told her what just went down. Here's what went down:

I did two transactions like a good crazy coupon lady would.

#1:

John Frieda Shampoo (on clearance): $3.49 used $3/1 John Frieda product= .49¢

John Frieda Conditioner (on clearance): $3.49 used $3/1 John Frieda product= .49¢

They didn't have any other clearance items, so I got the Root Awakening:

Root Awakening by John Frieda: $5.00 used $3/1 John Frieda product= $2.00

Root Awakening by John Frieda: $5.00 used $3/1 John Frieda product= $2.00

I also used 2 Rite Aid coupons: $3/$15 & $1/1 John Frieda Root Awakening (a Video Values coupon)

These products usually retail for $6.99 each.

My total before tax:

.98¢


after tax:

$2.20- tax was more than my purchase! Thanks California!


If I had not used coupons & sales, the total would have been:

$27.96 + tax


Transaction #2:

2 Biore Strips: On sale for $5.00 each (usually $6.99)= $10.00

2  Biore cleansers: On sale for $5.00 each (usually $6.99), I used the coupon from the SS (I think!) for Buy 1 Biore Strip and Get 1 Cleanser Free.=FREE

8 Cover Girl Foundations: On sale BOGO FREE ($6.99 each), I used 4 BOGO FREE coupons from the 2/7 P&G= FREE

I used 2 Rite Aid coupons: $5/$25 purchase & $1/1 Biore Product (a video values coupon)

My total before tax:

$4.00


After tax:

$7.76


If I had not used coupons & sales:

$88.00+ tax


I will also be getting a few Single Check Rebates from Rite Aid for these transactions:

$5.00 for the John Frieda

$5.00 for the Biore





My total savings tonight before my rebates:



$110.98!!!




After I get my SCRs:



$120.98!!


That would be my entire transaction for free!!!


Let me know if you have any questions about where or how I got my coupons. This is not a secret that I want to keep!! I had two gals at Target (including an employee) ask me how I saved money!  I want to help you out. Let me know!!

I know how you feel about tax! Here in CA we can't never get away with paying a few cents!
