.58 cents oop Rite Aid trips 5/10 & 5/11
$54.88 total saved
I made quite a mess out of this one. lol
Started off with $11ups and a $3 off $15 survey coupon
.58 cents total on 2 trips to Rite Aid this week. Mistakes were made, by me, on the first trip yesterday, I don't know what I was thinking but I just had to go back an fix it today. I was trying to do the buy $20 get $10ups deal and for some reason I thought that Eucerin was part of that deal and it is not. This one Rite Aid here never puts up their signs so it can sometimes be confusing as to which items are the sale items. So today I went back to returned the 3 Eucerin items I bought and buy the correct items, the cashier told me that the manager was at the other CVS and it would be best if I went there for the return. I had no problem with that, I needed to go there anyway to see if that store had any Tylenol precise left since my closer store was sold out anyway. I explained to the very nice manager how I bought the wrong items for the deal and needed to return the wrong items and would be purchasing the correct ones today, I also made sure he knew that I did use coupons for the items being returned and circled them on the receipt. After a bit of thinking and figuring, (he wasn't sure how to do the refund with the coupons and all.) he did the refund for $15.71 and put it on a gift card. At one point I told him I would just keep the items because I didn't want to be so much trouble. He told me it was ok and that he would do the refund for the full purchase price and forget about the coupons used because there was no way to give them back to me and they would be getting reimburst for them anyway.

Now my $10 ups printed, yeah, what a lot of work those $10 ups were to get, but I can't complain, it was my own fault for not paying better attention to what I was picking up on that first transaction yesterday.
oh, and just a note here- all the Rite Aids around here are out of the Tylenol precise that ends up free with the coupon from the Sunday paper, so I checked at CVS and they have it buy 1 get 1 half off, so if you buy 2 and use 2 $5 Q's it comes out to be $1.68 for 2, I know its not as good as the Rite Aid deal being free but the coupons expire on Sunday and the Rite Aids here get their shipments on Mondays. So if you have those coupons and don't want them to go to waste check out the prices at your CVS.
