Reader Shopping Trip: Rite Aid

I’m sure when Laurie came home with her Rite Aid shopping trip, here kids were happy.  Edy’s, Chex Mix, Chips and Peanut Butter.  And, the best part, they were all FREE.  And that made Laurie happy!

I have been getting such great deals at Rite Aid lately that it’s considerably cutting down my grocery bill! I have been rolling my UP rewards each week and have a nice stockpile of grocery items. Here is today’s trip:

(4) Lays Stax – $4.00
(2) Chocolate Chex Mix – $3.00
(2) Jif Peanut Butter – $3.98
(4) Edy’s Ice Cream – $11

Subtotal: $22.94

Coupons Used:
$.50/1 Chex Mix January Video Values
$.50/1 Chex Mix February Video Values
$.50/2 Chex Mix
$1/2 Jif Peanut Butter
Total: $20.44

Used: $20 UP Rewards

Paid: $.44

Received: $21 UP Rewards

ALL BETTER THAN FREE!!! My entire family is getting into it. When I’m clipping my coupons and getting my scenarios ready, my 6-year old son tells the rest of my family that Mommy is working on her coupon mania and my 4-year old daughter tells her Nana that her mommy gets most of her groceries for practically free! LOL!

Thanks for all that you do!

    Love reading the RA scenarios!

  • tara

    me too 😉

  • Mandi

    We no longer have a Rite Aid here. It just makes me so sad! :'(

  • I am loving all of the grocery items at Rite Aid lately too! 🙂

  • Ryan

    That is so much fun! I wish they just had healthier stuff on such super-sale. I couldn’t bring myself to get ice cream, cookies, candy, and snacks — even if they were free. I wouldn’t even feel good donating them to a homeless shelter!

    But, of course, these are the items that have long shelf lives and are easy to mass-produce. They couldn’t give away organic vegetables, as the margins on those aren’t as massive. :).

    I’m trying to understand the above deal. How did you get back $21? I could only only figure out $13 …$5 for the +UP your game wellness and $8 for the Edy’s ice cream. What am I missing?

    • Maggie

      Tara, $1 UPR for each of the Lays Stax, Jif, and Chex Mix so $8 for those.

  • Laurie M.

    I also got $1 for each of the lays Stax and $1 for each Jif peanut butter and $1 for each Chex Mix, so that is total $21 UP Rewards!

    I saw this post before I went out to do some shopping. We have birthdays coming up so we needed ice-cream! This was perfect! I did the same deal plus bought huggies diapers with a $2 huggies VV and $2 huggies stack plus a $1 VV and $21 up rewards. I only paid $3.24 oop and got $21 to use next time. This is so much fun! haha! Thanks for sharing your shopping trip. 🙂

    maggie and Laurie…Thanks…and wow… I need to hit Rite Aid, wish it wasn’t so icy out!!

  • Michelle

    I went to Rite Aid and I bought 2 Edy’s, 2 Pringles, 2 dixie plates and 2 chex’s Mix.
    I used my coupons and I got back the 5 ups for spending $15.00, and the 2 ups for each edy’s but only 1 Ups for the 2 chex’s mix and 1 Ups for the pringles. Why did I not get 2 Ups for the pringles and 2 Ups for the Chex’s. DOes anyone have any ideas on why? Thanks!
