Rite Aid Trip 04/14 (83% savings)

These are the results of my lunchtime Rite Aid trip today. I tend to go by Rite Aid at lunchtime because it is near my office and the traffic isn't quite as bad during that time. Also, Thursday is their restock day so they are more likely to have the sale items. This particular Rite Aid tends to run out of sale items very quickly. If you get there too late on a Sunday, all the sale items have been cleaned off the shelves.
  • 2 Soft Scrub @ 2.50/each (reg. price: $4.49), got $1.00 UPR wyb 2 and used (2) $1/1 Soft Scrub Total Product, exp. 4-30-11 (RP 03/13/11)
  • 2 Gillete Body Wash @ 2.99 (reg. price: $4.99), Got $2 +UP (limit 2) and used the B1G1 Gillette Bodywash, exp. 4-30-11 (P&G 04/03/11)
  • 2 Rite Aid Bandages (reg. Price: $2.99), it was on sale B1G1
I ended up with $5 UP reward bucks, my total out of pocket cost was 10.10, therefore my real cost was $5.10! Regular price of the items I purchased today: $24.94, my total out of pocket cost $10.10, my real cost after UP Reward bucks: $5.10! Savings of 80% / $19.84 (or 60%/$14.84 not including the UP Reward bucks, but the reward bucks are cash money)
During the same trip, I created a second transaction where I took $2 of the UP Reward Bucks I received and purchased 1 Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for $1.01. The product was $2.79 (-$2 up+rewards). Of course, you have to pay sales tax on the regular price before the rewards are applied.
