Reader Shopping Trip: Rite Aid, Target & Wegmans

Reader Sarah shared her big shopping trip.  She piggy backs a bunch of stores that are not close by her house into one trip.  Here is what she said:

I really enjoy seeing everyone’s trips and thought it was about time I share my own.  I drive 30-40 minutes to the nearest Rite Aid, so when I go to that area I always stop at several stores to make it worth the trip. I don’t go every week because I can get plenty of deals closer to home, but this week I wanted the Renpure. I also wanted to do the Bayer deal (I wanted the One-A-Day women’s vitamins), but even stopping at three Rite Aid stores I couldn’t find enough in stock. And no Nivea lotion, either.  Oh well! I think I made out OK regardless.

So after all was said and done I bought about $145 worth of merchandise at retail price and paid about $30 and I still have $7 in Up+ Rewards.  Even accounting for the gallon or two of gas I used (I drive a Civic, so it’s really efficient) I am still very happy. And my husband was pleased with the Swedish Fish and the Velveeta. 🙂

And keep the trips coming, with or without a contest, please… it’s fun to see the deals others are getting!

Well, good news Sarah.  The shopping trips with the giveaway are staying for next month.  We’ll be highlighting about 5 deals a week so you’ll still see the deals that others are getting and some of mine too!  So, make sure to keep your eye out on the new giveaway post.  And, this month’s giveaway ends on Sunday, so be sure to get your entries in.  Winners will be chosen and posted on Tuesday, 11/2.
