    I will probably go back a few rounds to Rite Aid this week to get different items. I live about .5 miles from one so as long as they are in stock I am happy!

  2. Da Netra says

    Today I bought 3 Airwick Motion Compact starter kids, 2 tums, and 2 tridents.

    Airwicks were 50% off and I had a $4.00 off coupn = $0.99 ea.
    Tums 2/ $8 = 2x $1.00 off 1. I had the Mar. Video $1.00 off but forgot to use it.
    Then I had the Trident – BOGO for taxes
    Used $10 of up points for a previous order

    Total was $1.86!! ( I got $2 ups)
    But I was confused that Airwicks were buy $15 get $5 ups and all the motion sensors had the tag but I didn’t get it. I’m not a person to make a scene in my regular store so I was dissapointed that didn’t print out but for not getting it I was happy to what have normally been $30.00 for $2.97!
