We went to two stores this week, one for a few grocery items and one for a wall of paper towels!

To start with the more fun trip, I went to Rite Aid to grab the last week of Starting Points deals. This is a promo offering $20 back in rewards when you buy $50 in participating items, and there are a lot of items to pick from! The best deal is on Scott, Cottonelle and Kleenex though since they are printing an additional $5 off reward. Watch the video above (or here) for all the details.

Rite Aid Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $71.94
Total Spent: $26.67
Got Back: $20 in Plenti Points and $5 off next purchase coupon

This deal runs through tomorrow, so grab it while you can!

After Rite Aid I went to Publix for just a normal trip. We saved right at 66% and got just enough before coupons to use the $10 off gas station gift card coupon in the weekly ad. I am trying hard to never miss these since it’s an easy 20% off gas.

Publix Totals:
Total Value Purchased: $58.51
Total Spent: $19.73
Total Saved: $38.78 or 66% off

I’m also planning to run by CVS for free mouth wash later tonight. What else do you do on date night?!

How was your savings this week? Leave a comment or head over to our Facebook page and leave a picture of your deal!

      At our Publix some cashiers won’t even ring up the gas card unless my total is 50 dollars after coupons first. I know it shouldn’t be that way but I don’t argue and just make sure I buy enough. I usually get Items that I need and don’t go on sale often like cat litter and such.

      • That stinks that they are doing that. For folks that just want one it shouldn’t matter, they get reimbursed for the coupons so you still bought $50 in groceries coupons or not :(

      For this deal to net to $1.67, you must start with a beginning balance of $20 worth of PP. So, really it nets to $21.67 with 8 packages of products, or $2.71/each. RIGHT? (I still think that’s great but, I just wanted to make sure I understood this.)

        Yes I had $20 in Plenti Points already. We’ve gone every week this year so far for the great deals with this Starting Points Promo. So 3 weeks ago I paid a lot out of pocket and then each week after barely paid anything for each weeks deals! If you don’t have points then you would pay $21.67 out of pocket for the items.

        You are correct. Jenny tells this in the end of the video. $2.71 is still an awesome price.
