Rite Aid Christmas Clearance

In case any of you guys don't know, (and I don't see how you could have missed it...) the Rite Aid Christmas items are all on clearance for 90% off. Everything that was ever in the Christmas aisle was included with fews  exceptions (bath sets, cd's, dvd's and pillow pets, mostly).

My store had little Christmas items left, but I went to the other store today and hit the jackpot! None of the toys were marked as clearance, but I knew they were, and bought two carts of toys (birthdays? check.) for $19.00! Nothing was over $1.99, and much of it was $1.49.

They even still had a train set and a dollhouse ($3.99 each!) and one of those tall dolls (the same height as my daughter, practically! ($2.99)

I was shocked there was so much still there, but I am thrilled to be set on gifts for a while. :)

Go check it out!

If you didn't really shop Christmas items, look for toys, wrapping paper ($.19!), stuffed animals, Gifts like binoculars, fountains, electric shavers and so forth, all 90% off, if you can find them. ;)

Good luck!

Rite Aid, week of 1.16, deals to pick up (or get rainchecks for)

Let me tell you, right now I am a little overdone with all the new couponers. Most of the people are fine. They all come in and get their couple of items in each deal and everyone gets some, but there are a few shelf clearers. I saw the deals, saw the post on H2S and knew I better get my kids up and get our butts to RA when they opened the doors if I stood a chance of getting any of the deals.

So I was the first on in the parking lot... followed by another couponer several seconds later. I got to the door, plunked my son in the cart and headed immediately for paper products. I DID warn the Store Manager that he might want to try to order up on these free after up items... so hopefully more will be coming in on the truck Friday. Meanwhile, I was the first one to get there, so I snagged the things I wanted, left plenty for others, and the other woman came around the corner... So it begins.

I am not pleased with the sudden influx of couponing being the "in" thing. TLC and their Extreme Couponing show can kiss my big toe. If they would show the idea of couponing; matching sales with coupons to get items for pennies, or next to nothing, stock up for four to six weeks, until the next sale cycle, that would be one thing, but the people chosen have been told to go crazy, and TLC is calling these couponers "Extreme Shopaholics" in thier little blurb about the show. Makes us look like a bunch of crazies.

So then, as I'm checking out, the SS comes over and vents about a phone call she just received. Some lady called and stated "I was there last week and witnessed lots of EXTREME HOARDING and I wanted to make sure the items I wanted are in stock before I bring my toddler out". Oh brother. I was there too, and I'll tell you what I saw. Ten to Fifteen couponers buying several of each deal apiece, which led to cleared shelves.

Then, I asked the SS what she wanted (thinking toilet paper/ tissues) and she wanted Tide. TIDE!!! pretty sure she had nothing to worry about.

The SS was really aggravated someone was calling her to be judgmental.... so listen ya'll, don't be so quick to judge others. It makes you look really bad. Oh and also - saw the lady before I left, and her son is older than mine, and heaven forbid me bring my son to Rite Aid in the 32 degree sunny weather. He'll survive. You snooze you lose.

At any rate, vent over. Here's the deals. If there aren't any left, get some rainchecks.

RA Toilet paper 4pk or single roll: $1, get $1 +up
=Free after +up

RA 65 ct boxed tissues (not 85 ct!): $1, get $1 +up
