Rite Aid: Gain Laundry Detergent $1.33

It is a great weekend to stock up on detergent. If you shop at CVS, you can get Wisk for $1.32- check out the scenario here.

If you prefer Gain or shop at Rite Aid – here is a deal idea for you. Gain is on sale for $5.00. It is also included in the spend $30, get a $10 UPR.  This offer starts tomorrow 10/16/11. 

 Transaction #1

Buy (4) Gain Powder Detergent $20.00
use (4) $2/1 Tide or Gain Powder Detergent, exp. 10/31/11 (SS 09/11/11 #2)
Pay 12.00

Transaction #2

Buy (2) Gain Powder Detergent $10.00
use (2) $2/1 Tide or Gain Powder Detergent, exp. 10/31/11 (SS 09/11/11 #2)
Pay $6.00
Get $10.00 UPR for spending $30

Your total will be $18.00 OOP, you will get back $10.00 UPR = $8.00 or $1.33 each

* The Gain coupons are 4 like coupons per transaction.  You may want to give yourself a few minutes before transactions, sometimes the computer systems at Rite Aid are delayed with the tracking.

    Hi ……where can I get the coupons

  • lili

    This did not work for me. I am in Northern California. I tried doing this deal today and the $10 up will not print if you use coupons. You have to pay $30 to receive the $10 UP rewards.

    • Shannon

      That is not true and never has been true at Rite Aid.

  • Grace

    Does anyone know if the powder is HE compatibe? TIA

    • rebecca

      they make one at my store that is made just for HE, and it is different from the original

      • Grace


  • I have 5 $2/1 Gain coupons, so I think I’ll use CoverGirl to bring my total to at least $30 on this. I believe I can use any overage from the CG $8/2 coupon towards the Gain. Even if I couldn’t, I’m thinking this might be:

    5 x $5 = $25
    $25 + CoverGirl purchase of at least $5 (should be free) = $30
    $25 – $10 of Gain coupons = $15
    receive +10UPR, or $1 per box of Gain

    If this is wrong, someone please tell me!

  • You could theoretically do this deal with the toilet paper too, yes? You could buy 5 of the Charmin Basic packs, which brings you to $30. You could use two $1/2 coupons (or five $.35/1 coupons, depending on what you received in your paper) to bring the total to $28. After the $10 +UPR, it would be like getting 5 packs, or 60 rolls of toilet paper for $18, or $.30/roll. But, maybe that’s not an extraordinary price–especially if they are not double rolls. (Are they double rolls?)

    The Manager at my Rite Aid said they asked Corporate about how long you have to wait between transactions to get the +UPR and was told 15 minutes. I had made a purchase and was a little short of reaching $30.00, I waited 15 minutes to buy another item and did get my +UPR’s.

  • Simone

    I have a question about the two transactions since I won’t be able to use 6 coupons in one transaction. Do I bring all 6 Gains to the register and ask the employee to ring them up in two transactions on the same receipt? Technically, can I buy 4 Gains in the morning and 2 in the afternoon and still get the $10UPR? Are the UPRs linked by a credit card or Rite Aid reward card? How will Rite Aid know if I buy 6 Gains at different times? I’m so confused.


    • Ana

      UPRs are tracked by your RA reward card.

  • Ana

    Which is better Gain or Wisk? I usually use All.

    • Shannon

      I dont have a preference personally – whatever is cheap is what I use. sorry!

  • Michelle

    I’m womdering what Rite Aid store will have 6 Gain detergents in stock? LOL!

    • Shannon

      Actually my store was setup yesterday with 2 endcaps plus the aisle. I say that had atleast 50+

    • I agree! I’ll be lucky if my store has 5 on the shelf!

  • Corlien

    Is this the same $10 UP when you buy $30 P & G products that we did for Cover Girl?? I love Gain, but don’t want to get stuck if the $10 UP does not print. I did do the $10 UP when you buy $30 a few weeks ago for the Cover Girl make-up. Thanks!! :)

    • Shannon


      Hmm, usually those are week to week and I dont remember the Gain being included last time. Suggestion if you are worried – pay for this one cash instead of UPR. If it doesn’t print, just return it.

      • Rikki

        I had the same question as I did the Covergirl deal you posted and it worked out AMAZING!!!! I looked at the ad and it didn’t have the gain on it so I am also wondering since it is a P&G deal if it is actually one in the same ??????

        • Shannon

          I am almost 100% sure its not the same one.

          • Corlien

            I just got back from Rite Aid, and the P&G deal did work!! It says on the tags by the Gain, Spend $30 and Get a $10 UP. The dates are 10/16/11 to `10/22/11. I wish I had more Cover Girl coupons, because I would have rather done that deal again with the BOGO half off. But $8 for six Gain laundry detergents is great!!! Thanks so much, Shannon!! :) :) :)

  • Rhiannon

    Look on ebay now, if you win and pay for an auction today they should be mailed out first thing Monday and you’ll have them for Wed/Thur. Send a note to the seller that you would appreciate them sending out the coupons Monday morning.

  • Sandra

    Thanks, I love Gain, but now I need to get ahold of 6 Gain coupons.
