I gave you a heads up last week that there was a big cosmetic money maker this week at Rite Aid. I don’t really need all the items so was planning on just letting it pass, until… a trip to Rite Aid this past weekend printed a $5 off $50 purchase coupon.

The point of those coupons are to make you come back, and it worked! Between the great cosmetic deal, 2 easy freebies and a good deal on diapers I couldn’t resist.

After all the coupons I got everything in the picture above and paid $25.72 in the store (I had $8 in +UPs from my last trip).  I also left with $28 +UP rewards to use on our next trip. If I can leave with more rewards than I spent, that’s a fun trip!!

Remember you can’t use +UP rewards until 24 hours later, so everything you earn from today’s trip will be used to buy next weeks deals.

Here’s what I bought:

(1) L’Oreal Butterfly Mascara, $5.34
(1) L’Oreal False Fiber Lashes Mascara, $5.99
(1) L’Oreal Liquid Eyeliner, $6.47
