Rite Aid Scenario $10.47 After Rebates

I headed out to Rite Aid to take advantage of some of the good coupons!   A few notes on my scenario:

  •  I needed Listerine. We were just about out.
  • I needed Finish. Again, just about out.
  • The coupons for most of the Johnson & Johnson products say 1 per customer and a total of 4 coupons for the same product.  It really limited the ways to do these scenarios.
  • I have a 20% wellness discount.

    Hmm, I had 3 SS inserts on Sunday (1/6) and no Mitchum coupons. So sad!

  • Kimberlee

    Aww, I got 3 Smart Source coupon inserts in Sunday’s paper and not one of them has the Mitchum coupon in it. Maybe it’s not in the south…?

  • maddie

    I signed in to J&J but I don’t see the $5 rebate. Is there another place to print it from?

  • James M

    Hi Shannon; thank you for all you do with this site and the coupon match ups to make my fiancee and my life easier. I also have the 20% wellness discount and was wondering if the nivea rang up @ 2.50 a piece or less because of your discount? I seen where someone had said it rang up @$2.39 with 20% discount, original price of $2.99??? Thanks again Shannon √

    • For the Mommas

      Hey James,
      Mine was $3.29 regular price, rang up at $2.50 for me. Do be careful, there are a few clearanced ones. I went to Pottstown store on 100 yesterday and I think their prices are close to my store.

      • Ana G.

        I also came across this problem $2.39 w/ 20% off discunt and did not reach the $15 for the $8 RR.

        • James M

          It seems some stores have the original price higher than $2.99. I went to the Douglassville and Pottstown Rite Aids and the original price was $2.99 – 20% = $2.39… I was prepared and purchased 8 and used 4 coupons for 3$ off 2. Not a $2.00 MM but MM of $0.88; all in all still a great deal.

  • Steph

    What newspapers had the Nivea coupons in them?? Not in morning call lehigh valley, Morning call reading, or Reading Eagle!! Drives me crazy.. I love their lip stuff!

    • Maria

      I would love to know too. I’m in Easton and I usually just get the Morning call

      • James M

        I’m in Pottstown… And the Pottstown Mercury News Paper has the RP and the Nivea coupons.

        • For the Mommas


          Did the Mercury have the Johnson & Johnson coupons – Listerine, etc?

          • James M

            No, unfortunately I had to get the Philadelphia Inquirer for the Johnson and Johnson coupons… Phila. paper had 3 SS inserts; Reading Eagle had 2 RP inserts and the Pottstown Mercury had 2 SS inserts and 2 RP inserts.

        • Maria

          Thanks for the infor – I’m stuck with the Express Times and Morning Call. Oh well I will have to wait and see if my Mom in law got them in Jersey

    • SherrieB

      Morning Call in Lehigh Valley never has Nivea coupons. Ever. It stinks. We dont normally get the J&J coupons and didnt this time either. :(

  • Linda

    The $5 bengay zero degrees coupon also worked on the bengay cold therapy which was only $5.99 on sale

    • James M

      Linda or Shannon; Does the bengay zero or the bengay cold therapy count towards the 10.00+UP when you buy $30.00 ??

      • For the Mommas

        Yep :)

        • James M

          Great, your the best…

  • Maria

    I think I’m going to buy the Finish at CVS they have them 2 for $8 and that way I can us 2 coupons plus they are part of the Spend $3o and get $1o CVS cash card.

    • Alison

      Oh neat!! Thanks for saying something about it because I didn’t know that and I want to get some.

  • janet

    Too bad my Sunday inserts didn’t include 90% off these GREAT coupons!

    • Alison

      Same here, was really bummed.

  • Alison

    Great deals!!! I was wondering how soon upr expire? Like I have two on my card for some things that I bought on the 22nd of December. Would I still be able to use them? And also how do you get the 20% off?

    • chantal

      They usually expire within 2 weeks.

      • Alison

        That is what I thought…. Thank you!

    • For the Mommas
      • Alison

        Thank you!!!

    • Jacqui

      You can opt out of having them on your card and have them print. This way you can see what you have and use them when you want to.

  • Lauren

    Nice trip! I have my deals all worked up to shop later, but I haven’t seen anything about a $3UP for the Finish. Is there a monthly on that? Thanks!

    • For the Mommas

      Yep, Monthly when you buy $15.00

      • Lauren

        Excellent! Thanks again!

      • Holly

        And can you use 2 finish q’s if they are BOGO? I forget. Might still be better at Giant – $1.34 after q?

        • For the Mommas

          Holly, the Giant was 20 ct right? Or am I mistaken?

          • Maria

            Oh didn’t realize that Rite Aid had the larger ones. I might pick them up at Rite Aid instead. Do you know if they are part of the Winter Bonus? I just need another $15 to get my last $10 UPR. Yes I shopped like crazy last week and I have $63 in UPR’s lol

            • For the Mommas

              They aren’t! I was hoping they were. I had UPR to burn too Maria. Sometimes it makes sense to pay slightly more in order to use UPR / etc.

              So the deal looks like this:

              Buy (4) 32 Finish $16.58
              use (2) $2.15/1 Coupons
              Pay $12.28
              Get $3.00 UPR
              $9.28 for 128 Tablets or $.07 per tab

              So the coupon has a limit of 2 per shopping trip.


              Buy (2) Finish Tablets $7.98
              use (2) $2.15/1 Coupons
              $3.68after coupons or $.09 per tab

              Now, if you can do this 4 trips (need 8 coupons and must do 4 trips because of coupon restrictions) you can pay $14.72
              and get back $10.00 Cash Card.

              • Maria

                Wow your so much faster with the break downs. I was just writing mine up and trying to figure out the best scenario for me. I have 5 coupons so I might get 4 from Rite Aid (using 2 coupons ) and get the other 3 at CVS unless we can do the Rite Aid deal twice.

                BTW I received my CVS gift card yesterday. Thanks again

                • For the Mommas


                  LOL I have a masters in accounting. I was a corporate accountanting for a long time.

                  • Kimberlee

                    How do you get the Mitchum coupon? I don’t see it in my smart source or red plum….?

                    • For the Mommas

                      $1/1 Mitchum Item, exp. 2/10/13 (SS 01/06/13 #2)
                      Smart Source
