I admit it, I’m a Downy snob. Sure, there’s no way I passed up FREE Snuggle at Family Dollar a couple months back, but I wasn’t happy about using it. I just LOVE Downy! I love the smell, I love the softness. My husband’s co-workers tease him because he “smells like a girl”. That’s a sacrifice I am willing to make. I don’t love the price, but it’s one of those things I allow myself to splurge on.
Anyway, the point of this rambling is that I went to Rite Aid yesterday to get my Downy (and more) and was pleasantly surprised to get a +Up Reward for EACH Downy that I purchased. You know these are supposed to be limit 1 per Wellness+ card, but not this time! So, I didn’t have to “splurge” on my Downy this time…Happy Dance!
Here’s the deal scenario I did:
Buy (4) Downy Fabric Softener (60Lds) – $5.99 each = $1.00 +Up Rewards
Buy (4) Use $5/$25 Rite Aid Total Purchase Q
Use (4) $1.50/1 Downy Qs from 8/22 SS
Use (4) $1.00/1 Gain Qs from 8/29 PG
Use (1) $2.00/1 Butt Paste Q from 4/11 SS
$3.00/1 Butt Paste Sept Video Values Q
Pay $11.51, get back $4.00 +UR (one for each Downy!)
Final cost is $7.51 for all!
Or since the Butt Paste and Gain was Free…the Downy was $1.88 each!
I could’ve just purchased 3 Downy’s and I would still be over $25…then they would only be $1.34 each! But I had 4 coupons and felt like stocking up!
I just discovered your website last week, and I love it! I am a Mom of 4 in Michigan, but enjoy reading all about your deals.
I just did my first trip to Rite-Aid ever (I am a life-long coupon user, but I’m new to the internet coupons and shopping tons of stores). Here’s what I bought:
1 ThermaCare Heat Wraps (3 ct)
1 Garnier Fructis Shampoo (33% Bonus)
1 Butt Pate
6 Gain Dishwashing Liquids
2 Pepsi Max Sodas (20 oz)
1 Tampax (20 ct)
1 Crest Pro Health
Came to $42…paid out of pocket $12, got to Up Rewards for $1 each, and $2 in rebates…making it $8! I am THRILLED!
Thanks for posting your deals! It’s an inspiration!
