    • Emily

      Hi! I love your website; it is SOOO helpful! I plan on doing the money-making scenario at the bottom of this post, but I noticed you left off the $2.50 Electrasol coupon in that list. I’m sure others can figure it out like I did, but I just thought you might want to know.

    • tonya

      i did not get the electrasol coupon in my ss on 4/19. i have 4 papers and none of them had it. why not?

    • Cybelline

      I know from reading your blog that you are very concerned with keeping couponing legal and honest. Even so, I just want to ask if it’s okay to reprint the RiteAid $5/$25 coupons. My only experience with these is with CVS, where they are tied to my CVS card, and aren’t meant to be shared. When I went into my RiteAid account today, to sign up for the coupons & e-mail notification, there weren’t any coupons like these.

      Why are these okay to duplicate? Thank you in advance for your answer, as I’d love to use them!

    • Lauren

      If you don’t submit for the April check, will it be sent automatically at the end of the month? My receipts are entered but I was waiting until I was sure I had bought everything.

    • wendy

      After I printed the MiniDrops coupon I could not read the fine print at all. I can’t read an experation date, mailing address, etc. I don’t mean to sound like your doing anything illegal. I love this website. I just wanted to let you know. Am I going to have a problem using it?

    • wendy

      You have to go back on the site and request your check for April and then they will send it.

    • Lori

      i cant read the fine print either (its blurry) but since it is from the manuf website I am just going to leave it on the full page so the retailer can see it’s from their website. My bar code print clear so I’m sure it will work just fine :-)

    • Mike

      Have a question. For an example, the Johnson and Johnson offer for May says if you spend $25.00 on J&J products you get a $10.00 rebate. Does using manufacturer coupons effect this? If I have 3-$1.00 off J&J coupons and use them would I then have to still spend the 25 dollars or would I now have to only spend 22 dollars to get the 10 dollar rebate? Thanks for your help.

    • I found hang tags at cvs for the vitamin shampoo as well as the organix. I am going to take them to rite aid. They may be on the bottles at rite aid as well. They are mail rebates limit on per household. This way since the shampoos are buy one get one free you can get 2 free after the rebate. http://www.madamedeals.com

    • Katie

      Hi! This will be my first trip to rite aid. If I do your money making scenario can I also buy two extra electrasol tabs with mc? Was not sure if there was a limit. Just a little nervous about messing up! : ) Thanks! : )

    • kittychatalot

      If the item with a rebate does not say “Limit 1” does that mean I can get multiple rebates if I buy multiples of the item? For instance- I have two coupons for the electrasol and am out of dishwasher detergent. Can I buy two and get two rebates? TIA!

      • Jenny

        The limits are the limits of rebates allowed. So if you buy 2 you will only get one rebate.

    • Laura

      I’m a little confused? If you are going to buy stuff at Rite Aid this week (still April dates), should you wait on requesting your rebate check? I don’t want to purchase some things and find out I can’t get my rebates because I’ve already requested a check.

    • Sarah

      I did the money making deal this morning at my Rite Aid and it worked out great. I even found a $2.00 peel off q on the Mini Drops…so look for a box with that on it if you don’t have the other q’s listed. Love this site btw…it is very helpful! Also I noticed that some where saying that they did not get certain q’s in their paper. I found this to be true with our local paper. But if you look in the bigger city paper you will find some of the ones you may be missing. For me I am in VA and had to get a Richmond paper to get the other q’s. HTH!

    • Jessica

      I had a question about the $5 off $25 for Rite Aid. I called my Publix and they accept all competitors coupons. Does this mean that I can also use this coupon for $5 off my groceries at Publix?

    • Kelly

      BTW….the electrasol SCR is for $1.50 not $2 (in SC). Which means they are .50 each after SCR and Q. Still a good deal in my book.

    • wendy

      Just wanted to report that there are $2.00 off peelies on the MiniDrops packages. I bought them today. Makes it an even better deal if you can find them.

    • tonya


      my publix lets me use a $5 off $25 everytime i’m in there. just check w/ the clerk/manager first so there won’t be any surprises.

    • Amy

      I have submitted for the Johnson and Johnson rebate, as well as the Allergy rebate, and RA used their advertised price to calculate my total spent. They did not deduct any coupons — not RA, manuf, or $5/25 — even though it states they will in the fine print of the rebate.

    • tonya

      the rite aid printable from above ($5 off $25) would not scan at my store here in montgomery al. she said she couldn’t take it if it would not scan. is there anywhere else i might print one that will work?

    • wendy

      My $5/$25 never scans. Even the ones Riteaid.com send me in an email. They always have to manually type it in. Sometimes it also has to get managers approval. They are really good at mine about taking my coupons. I think it really all depends on the cashier and the manager.

    • tonya

      my husband said i need to get a backbone…says i’m too nice…so, should i ask to see the manager if a cashier says they can’t take it.

    • wendy

      There is a rebate back on the listerine whitening rinse for $2.00. (SCR #121) I did not know until I got home and started looking at the rebate book closer. So an even better deal for me. I already entered my receipt and got confirmation back from Riteaid.com this morning that I qualified for the rebate.

    • Beth

      I just went into riteaid to get my minidrops (took me 3 rite aids to finally find one that had them in stock) and I paid with a SCR that I got back from feb. It wasn’t until I only owed .49 cents that I started to worry and wonder if I will still get my SCR for the mini drops.
      So my question is, “Can I pay with a SCR for the minidrops and still get my SCR for the minidrops?”

      • Jenny


        You will still get the full rebate back. It is just as if you had used coupons to get the price that low.

    • tonya

      i have not gotten my scr yet. is it only redeemable at rite aid? or is it a check i can cash?

      • Jenny

        It is a check that you can cash. It says that you can use it at Rite Aid but you don’t have to.

    • tonya

      yey! thanks jenny. i was about to head out but i didn’t want to spend more oop uless i was getting a check i could put back in my checking account. good deal.

    • tonya

      thanks wendy! i saw the picture of the whitestrips and assumed they were the only eligible product.

      2 listerine whitening rinse 16oz $8
      use $4 off two rite aid coupon
      get $2 scr #121
      makes them $1 each
      good deal!

    • Beth

      Has anyone tried to use the in-ad Listerine $4/2 coupon in combination with other manufacturer coupons, like the scenario above suggests? The in-ad coupon says manufacturer coupon, so it seems like you couldn’t use additional coupons without buying more than 2 bottles.

      • Jenny

        Rite aid labels all of their store coupons as manufacturer coupons, but they are really store coupons. They are also fine with you stacking store and manufacturer coupons together (they even tell you to do this with other deals in the ad).

    • Momof2

      Hi guys, Just wanted to let you know that Kotex pantliners are 79 cents this week less 75 cent coupon, if you have one, which makes it 4 cents.

    • Christie
    • Christie

      $1.electrasol printable here (my paper didn’t have the $2 off coupon)

    • Christie

      OMG, I am amazed. I think I just made $13.42 (once rebates come in, of course) after purchasing ~$65.00 worth of products at Rite Aid.

      Thanks Momof2 for the Kotex pantyliner tip. I had some $2 off 2 printables for any Kotex pads that ended up providing overage.

      wow wow wow

    • Lori


      My Rite Aid informed me today that they can only take 1 internet coupon per transaction. (said they just got the email a few days ago) So if you use the $5 off $25 that’s the only “internet” coupon you can use. When the manager scanned the 2nd it BEEPED at us, LOL. Just an FYI for everyone :(

    • Cathy

      At my rite aid in Los Angeles County the electrasols were not on sale they were $5.99, with the $2.00 rebate plus I had the $2.50 coupon but it was still $1.49 and the Skintimate was not on sale it was $3.99 with the $2.24 rebate and then .75 coupon so it was still $1.00. Did anyone else find this?

    • Teresa

      I”m sooo proud of myself. Being dependent on your scenerios each week, I go to the stores with my list and coupons in hand. This week I had my coupons and lost my list. When I walked into Rite Aid I was totally lost, did”nt know where to turn, walking around aimlessly [lol] grabbed a sale paper and made my own deal. To my surprise I still made a money maker. Thanks for the lessons!

    • tonya


      i got mixed up too on the skintimate deal. it is the 6oz (curvy upside down looking bottle) that has the scr not the classic cylinder bottle. my rite aid had the scr sign by the wrong skintimate. sometimes the employees there don’t even know what is going on.

    • Leslie

      Just did my first rite aid trip today. I had 3 J&J Baby product coupons I had from the paper and 3 that I had printed and they said they don’t take ANY internet coupons that aren’t their own. Does anyone else’s rite aid have this policy? Still a good deal but ugh on the time I took to print!

    • tonya

      yes leslie,

      i was also told that by a local rite aid. ironicallly another rite aid just 5 miles up the road does take internet coupons. i guess in this case like many of the others…it just depends on the store. best bet is to know the store you shop at. ask before you check out so their won’t be any surprises. better yet, call before you go. i only have this inconsistency in “store” policy with rite aid and walgreens. cvs is always consistent wherever i go. what a relief!
