I keep going on and on about those Nature's Bounty coupons, but they are really great high values q's that get you overage - this week you can get overage at Walgreens, Rite and and Kroger with the bogo sales. All these places allow one coupon on each item in a bogo sale, so you can get some nice overage.

PLUS! There's a rebate deal at Rite Aid right now that includes Nature's Bounty products.
SCR#552 states when you buy $25 of included products, you get a $10 Rite Aid gift card, and when you buy $50 in products, you get a $25 gift card. This SCR includes the following items which can give you a free gift card for spending little of nothing.

SCR# 552 item: Nature's Bounty $4.99, $5.49, $7.99
-$5/1, $3/1 or $2/1
-$1/1 Rite Aid Video Values q
Stack a mq with a Video Values q for maximum overage.
~earn $ toward SCR#552

2 Nature's Bounty $4.99/ea bogo
-$5/1 mq x2
-$1/1 mq x2
=$7.01 overage!
~earn $4.99 toward SCR#552

Now, think like a couponer and not like a regular person. Get yourself up to $20 in products and use a $5/20 for even MORE savings! Either use the overage on things you need, or buy the free after SCR items to get even more money back.

SCR# 552 item: Flexamin $14.99 bogo this week!
-$6/1 1.10 RP
-$1/1 Rite Aid Video Values q (same as Nature's Bounty)
=buy two use two q's each, pay $.99

  1. does rite aid ever give you a hard time using all of those internet coupons in one transaction? my rite aid will only let me use one internet coupon per transaction (and it's written in their policy next to the register).

  2. Nope, I never have trouble. As long as I don't have more q's than items (just like anywhere)they let you use as many q's as you want. Like with many of the drugstores and grocery stores, it depends on your store and cashier. :)

    Are you in Nashville? My favorite ASM just transferred to the West End location and she will take ANY coupon! Her name is Brennan, she's super! She is in school, working nights and weekends at Rite Aid. She is a couponer too, so she understands how it works. She is the one that would not give me a hard time when using a bogo q qith a bogo sale and a $1/1 with it! Awesome.

  3. oh, I just looked at your profile and you're in N.Ga. What area of Ga are you in? Are there other Rite Aid stores, maybe a bit of a drive, but worth it? that are more coupon friendly?

  4. Do you know if Publix carries Nature's Bounty? I would love to use them for overage.

  5. Sheila, I'm sorry, I don't know. I actually meant to look yesterday but I forgot. If anyone knows, could you please tell us?

  6. I'm actually south of Atlanta, which is BIG coupon country, so if I have the time, I might try to go to a store in the "city" because they are usually the most coupon friendly. Thanks for your advice and for all you do to keep us informed!
