Rite Aid $0 oop on 1st of 3 RA transactions this week!!

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Rite Aid trip 4/11/11



$0 out of pocket on 1st transaction at Rite Aid 4/11/11
Saved $26.46



I planned 2 transactions today that turned into 3 transaction,
because this Rite Aid is not very good about putting
up there sale signs. Transaction 1 went great with zero oop, no problems
transaction 2 went wrong and my ups did not print so you
will see in transaction 3 how I fixed that.

Transaction #1

Started out with $13 ups

What I bought Price Coupons used

Buy $20 John Frieda get $10 ups

1 full repair $5 $2+$1 ra
1 frizz ease
dream curl $5 $2
2 frizz ease leave in
conditioner $5x2= $10 $2x2+$1ra
Got $10 ups

Total $20-$10 coupons=$10

How I paid

$2 off $10 vv hair care RA coupon
$8 ups

ups received
$10 for John Frieda deal
$5 left over
I have $15 ups now


Total out of pocket $0
----------------------------------------------------

Transaction #2

What I bought Price Coupons used

2 Gillette
body wash $2.99x2= $5.98 1 b1g1 + $2=$4.99
Get $2 ups each x2 = 4ups

Spend $20 on Nature Made get $10 ups

1 Nature Made (the sign stated this was $11.99)
fish oil $10.34 $3+$1.50Ra
1 Nature Made (the sign stated this was $9.99)
vitamin D $8.99 $3+$1ra
(I should have received $10 ups for this deal but they did not print.
A 3rd transaction was needed to fix this because I was only
.67 cents short of the required $20 due to the sale that I was
unaware of.)

Total $25.31-$13.49=$11.82

How I paid

$3 off $10 coupon for receipt survey
$2 $1 vv coupons x2, for non prescription items
$5 ups
$1.82 oop

ups received
$4-for the 2 Gillette body wash purchases
$10 left over

Total out of pocket $1.82
----------------------------------------------------

Transaction #3

Returned the 2 nature made vitamins
$10.34+$8.99= $19.33credit

bought 2 fish oil @$10.34=$20.68
credit of $19.33 applied -19.33
------------------------------------------------
Total oop $1.35
Now my $10ups printed

I now have $24 ups for my next shopping trip

Great job but I see a few problems.

First of all, in the first transaction you did not buy enough of the Full Repair to use the VV. I already used mine but it was only for certain JF - not all of them.

See Emily's thread here:
http://www.weusecoupons.com/upload/r...bonus-vvs.html

Also, in your second transaction, you can only use one of the generic $1/1 VVs in one transaction. And you cannot use a $3/15 with any of the generic $1/1 VVs.

I'm sure these were not intentional but I do not want others to make a similar mistake.

I had no idea, ive been using more then one of the $1 vv coupons for months and every cashier just takes them off. I dont have one right now to read, but I will be sure to look it over more carefully when I do get one. I guess I could have used one on each transaction instead, but I didn't know it was one per transaction. I guess either way it would have come out the same in the end. As for the JF full repair I did buy the full repair and I think that was what the coupon was for, wasn't it? I get very excited to share when I have a good shopping trip but I don't want to misslead anyone.

RA's system is not designed well on VVs. The register will accept these Qs together but RA's policy is to only accept one total purchase Q in a single transaction. Those Qs include the generic $1/1 VVs, the $2/10 VVs, the 5/25 and the 3/15 Qs.

And, as it relates to the Full Repair it looked like you used the $2/10 VV which required a second Full Repair to be purchased to use this Q.
