Food Lion

It's time for a Food Lion trip!

FL has a huge bogo sale going on, and like Kroger and Publix, bogo items actually ring up at half price, so you don't have to buy two to get the deal.

Many Kraft items are included, so if you still have the $5/5 Kraft printable (or haven't printed it yet, from HERE)

You can get some great prices on Kraft!

Here are some items I am picking up:

Kraft shredded/blocks $2.79 bogo
Kraft singles $2.39 bogo
Kraft Philly Cream Cheese $1.89 bogo

The ad states limit 2 on the free items, so mix n match if your cashier gives you a hard time or break up the the transactions

Here's what I'm thinking
4 Kraft Singles $2.39 bogo
4 Kraft shreds $2.79 bogo
2 Cream Cheese $1.89 bog0
= $13.05

-2x $5/5 mq
$3 cat from Aquapods

=$.05 +tax

There's also a good deal on Smuckers/Jif.
When you buy 5 participating items (Smuckers, Jif, Kellogg's participating cereals, Capri Sun), get $5 off instantly. No more than 2 like items in your transaction.

Here's my plan
2 Jif 2/$4
2 Smuckers 2/$4
1 Capri Sun 2.07
-$5 instant

Use 2x $1/2 8.8 RP
=$3.07 oop for all 5 items!

And finally, This deal on Glade!
Purcahse $8 on Glade and receive $3 off your order instantly.
Glade Jar candles $2.49/ea

Do this
4 Glade jar candles 2.49/ea
- $3 instant
= $10.96

2x BOGO q's 9.26.10 SS = $6.98

=$3.98 oop
Earn 2x $2 oyno cats (wyb 2 Glade, get $2)



Don't forget your free Pantene Beautiful Lengths today!!

$2/1 Pantene Beautiful Lengths 8.29.10
expires today!!

These are ringing up BOGO50%, at 2/$4, and get $2 rr wyb 2!

1 Pantene BL $4.00
1 Pantene LB $2.00 (50% off)

2x $2/1 mq

=$2 oop
Earn $2 rr!

And... it's rolling!

So, you can turn around, buy two more with a Halloween tumbler $.16 (or other cheap item), and use the $2rr from the first transaction to get them for pennies, earn another $2rr!

So maybe

I should change my blog to I Prefer Rite Aid. !!


Sorry for all the Rite Aid posts lately, it just seems with all the new and super duper deals at RA these days, it is THE place to shop!!

UPDATE! Rite Aid Olay deal next week


This deal is unlimited! And! It's accumulating... so whatever you have leftover at the end will accumulate - I purchased five of these deals, with $3xx leftover after each transaction. I then purchased four olay cleansers, using the $2/1 coupons from this past weekend's P&G, with some fillers and received another $10 up!
(does that make sense?)

Some people have reported not getting their $10 up when they used the $10 up to pay (so fair warning).

Here's a great deal on Olay at Rite Aid next week!

Olay products are Bogo50% off, so I'm not totally sure how the register will handle buying three, with different values, but hopefully, it will ring up the items like this...


Olay Moisturizer $8.49
Olay Moisturizer $4.24 (50% off $8.49)
Olay Eye Roller $21.99 {If you have a discount on your wellness card, this item will get the discount...hopefully!}
=$34.72 {with no discount}

$5/25 RAq
$1/1 Olay mq 9.12.10 SS x2
Free Olay Eye Roller wyb Olay moisturizer mq 9.12.10 SS {Max value $19.99}
$1/10 Skin Care Wellness RAq HERE
$2/1 Olay RAq from Flu booklet
= - $29.99

=$4.73 oop +tax

Earn $10 +up wyb $30 Olay products
Then! There's a new rebate coming in the paper this weekend. (No details yet, but hopefully, it will go right along with this deal! Will update when I have the info.)

If you have a discount, it will be even less, since you will get the full value off for the eye roller.

The register also could handle the purchase like this (giving you the eye roller as one of the bogo items, and the moisturizer getting the wellness discount)

Olay Eye roller $21.99
Olay Moisturizer $4.24
Olay Moisturizer $8.49 (with your wellness discount coming off this item)

We'll have to wait and see- but it's a small difference, in the end. I will let you guys know when I try it on Sunday to see how it rings up.

Free water and cheap Laundry detergent at Food Lion

This week at Food Lion, you can get Free Aquapods (those cutesy little bottles kids love).

These are on sale for $1 each, and when you buy three, you get a $3 catalina! So, pay $3 +tax and get a $3 oyno. Turn around, buy three more, pay with your catalina, pay tax oop ($.24 here in TN) and get another $3 cat.


Then Wisk detergent is on sale for $3.99. There's a $3/1 coupon from 8.29 RP

Rite Aid super deals!

It's another great week at Rite Aid!

I am exhausted, so I can't possibly list everything, but here's the deals I did today...

Transaction 1
3 Garnier Nutrisse $5.99/ea
1 Scott toilet paper $6.99

$5/25 ip
3x $3/1 Garnier haircolor mq 9.12.10 RP
3x $2/1 Garnier Nutrisse RAq (Flu book - Thanks Mel!!!)
2x $2/1 Garnier Haircolor RAVVq (yes, these are one time use. I have two accounts, and printed one from each account. Register allowed each as the barcodes are different. YMMV if the cashier allows more than one)
1 $1/1 Scott RAVVq

=$.96 oop
(there are Scott q's out there, I forgot to bring them. There is also a printable Wellness coupon for $1/$10 Hair care or something- I think it can be used on the Haircolor. I forgot to print that too)

Earn $5 +up for Garnier, $2 +up for Scott

Transaction 2
2 Pampers $15.99/ea (after 20% wellness discount)

2x $1.50/1 Pampers mq
$23 +up earned previously

1 clearance vitamin $3.99

10x $2/1 Noxema Razors 5.23 RP
1 $.75/1 Crest tp 8.29 P&G

=$1.13 +tax

Earned $2 SCR for Crest, was hoping for the $1.50 +up for the Crest tp, as has been reported a double-dip, but it did not print.

Super Diaper deal at Rite Aid

If you have a baby, or know someone who does and needs disposable diapers, here's a deal for you at Rite Aid this week!

Pampers Big box diapers (regularly priced @) $19.99
Earn $5 +up wyb ONE.
Then, If you buy $25 participating J&J products; earn $10 +up, Pampers are included.

Since this is the regular price, your wellness discount will apply.
10% discount = $17.99/box (if you have received a one time 10% shopping pass, now would be a great time to use it!)
20% discount = $15.99/box

So do this:

2 Pampers Big Box Diapers $19.99/ea (if you have a wellness discount, it will apply)

2x $1/1 Pampers 8.29 P&G (or check your stash, there are $2/1 home mailers and I had $1.50/1 q's from inside boxes I bought previously)

(use any ups you have to reduce oop)

Earn TWO $5 +ups for buying Pampers (there doesn't seem to be a limit!) and ONE $10 +up for buying J&J products

=$12.98 after ups for two boxes!

I have a 20% discount on my card, so my transaction looked like this:
2 Pampers $15.99/ea

2x $1.50/1 mq

I used $23 in +ups from previous purchases and then received $20 back! So basically, two BOXES of diapers cost $4 +tax.

There's nothing like rolling +ups on something you need!

Rite Aid Super Monyeymaker

If you were lucky enought to find the $4/1 Biotrue tearpad coupons at Wal-Mart (check the vision center- I actually picked up more of them last week - no one seems to know about these here in Clarksville ;) and they were in a little basket on top of a shelf, on top of the case of lens solution, under some trash and a pair of glasses. lol. yes, I was looking HARD for them. lol)

These have an up+ reward printing at Rite Aid this week and since they are NOT on sale, any discount you get with your wellness card comes off the Biotrue.

Regularly priced at $4.99, with 10% off, these would be $4.49, with 20% off, makes them $3.99. Then you get a $4 +up for each one you buy. AND these are not limited! So you can buy as many as you want on one card!!

Here's what I did (I have a card with 20% off all non-sale items)
5x Biotrue $4.99 - 20% = $3.99/ea
1 Crest $2.99
Case of water $2.99 - 20% = $2.39

$.50/1 Crest mq (there's also $.75 and $1/1 mq's, regional)
-5x $4/1 Biotrue coupon

=$1.xx oop (including tax)

Earned 5x $4 +up (Biotrue) and $2 +up (Crest)

=$21 mm!!
