This post is for the purpose of helping you be more successful at Rite Aid. Here's an example of what you can achieve:
#1- Look for the FREE items. First, free OOP. Second, free after rebate. Third, free after Wellness Credit (new Rite Aid program). These items will help you reach your $20 total without costing you anything.
#2- Use $5 off $20 purchase coupon by watching some short advertisements with Rite Aid Video Values program. You get a coupon for each advertisement you watch, it's FREE to join, AND every month after you earn 20 credits you get the $5/$20 coupon. Make sure you print all the coupons you will need for the month because you can only use the print option on each coupon once.
#3- After you have the previous two things, get your total up to $20. Depending on how many free items I have, I will try buying things I need that I don't have coupons for. This way it's like the $5 is applying toward that item.
1 Pampers $11.99 (+ $2 SCR)
1 Veet Hair Removal $6.49
1 Playtex Sports Tampons $3.99
Used $5/$20 purchase
$3/1 Pampers Mailer coupon
$3/1 Veet In-ad coupon
$3/1 Veet Video Values coupon
$3/1 Veet IP
$1/1 Playtex Video Values
$1/1 Playtex IP
Submit for $2 SCR
Total OOP $1.47
The Veet was a FREE/Moneymaker item. I ended up "making" $2.51 on it. I needed the tampons and diapers. Since I had a high value Pampers coupon and there was a rebate, I chose Pampers brand. That still only made the diapers $6.99 which isn't very cheap until you take the $5/$20 coupon off and the Veet credit. I'm still at -52 cents. Tampons after coupons were $1.99 which is a pretty good price and now we're at $1.47 total.
The point? Manipulate your purchase to your advantage. I normally wouldn't buy Veet but it's a free/moneymaker so it's worth it. So before you go shopping, make a list of items you need, items you use that are cheap, and free items. Then try different combinations to get your total barely above the $20 minimum and making your OOP pocket change! That easy... :)
