A blissful Rite Aid experience:)

I had a chance to go to Rite Aid today. I was kind of expecting some of the FAR (free after rebate) items to be gone...but NONE of them were!
I followed Hip 2 Save's Rite aid post HERE very closely:)
I printed off 3 $5/25 coupons and did these transactions.

Scenario #1 (Stocking your pantry):
Buy 4 Skippy Peanut Butter $1.99 each=$7.96
Buy 4 Ragu sauces $1.99 each=$7.96
Werther’s Original Caramel Chocolate Candies $2.99
Buy 2 Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal Cup .99=$1.98
Buy 1 Zantac 150 (8 ct) $4.99
Use the $5 off $25 coupon from coupons.com
Use 2 $1/2 Skippy coupons from the 8/2RP
Use 2 Ragu $1/2 coupons from the 8/2RP
Use the .55 Werthers coupon from the 4/26SS
Use 2 .55 coupons for Honey nut Cheerios from coupons.com
Use the $3 Zantac coupon from here
Pay $12.23

BUT then get back a $5 Single Check Rebate for the Skippy & Ragu, a $2.99 Single Check Rebate for the Werther's, a $4.99 Single Check Rebate for the Zantac. Final cost for all the above--FREE + a .75 moneymaker!

I changed this next scenario quite a bit because I didn't have the BOGO Panteene coupon or the Garnier coupon.??.. (must have been regional coupons)
Scenario #2 (Stocking Your Bathroom):
Buy 1 Mach 3 disposable razors 4.99
Buy 1 Crest Pro Health Toothpaste $2.79
Buy 1 Aveeno lotion (10% off this week) 5.61
Buy 1 Gillette Venus Razor $7
Buy 1 Banana Boat or Hawaiian Tropic $7.99
Use the $5 off $25 coupon
Use the $2 disposable razor coupon 8/2 PG
Use the .75 Crest coupon from the 7/5 or 8/2PG
Use the $2.00 Aveeno coupon from the inside of the package of various small Aveeno products that was free with a deal at Walgreens a few months ago.
Use the $2 Venus coupon from the 8/2PG
Use the $2 printable Banana Boat or Hawaiian Tropic coupon from above
Pay $14.63

BUT then get back $2.79 for the Crest, $5 for the Venus razor, $2 for the Banana Boat/Hawaiian tropic. Final cost for all the above--4.84. I could have done better, but considering the next transaction, I will consider it free.

Scenario #3 (It's all about the PROFIT!):
Buy ReNu MultiPurpose Solution 8 oz Bottle Twin Pack $9.99
Buy Natrol Probiotic $8.99
Buy GE Soft White Long Life Light Bulbs $2
Buy Duck Brand EZ Start Frustration Free Tape $1.49
Buy 6 BIC Crystal Stick Pens (10 ct.) 2/$1=$3
Use the $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon from coupons.com
Use the $2 ReNu coupon
Use the $3 Natrol coupon (for these coupons see Hip-2-Save's post)
Use 3 $1/2 Bic coupons
Pay $12.47

BUT then get back $9.99 for the ReNu, $8.99 for the Natrol, $2 for the GE light bulbs and $1.49 for the Duck Free tape. Final cost FREE + a $10 moneymaker!

Thanks again for Hip-2-Save for making it so easy this week!
