    • steph

      anyone having trouble w/ the $1 off general mills q?

    • lovesavingmoney

      I like those transactions. Looks like I know what I will be getting this week!! Thanks Jenny!

    • apoff

      I don't know if other Rite Aid stores are running this deal, but my Rite Aid has several John Frieda products for 50% off. They are regularly $6.49, and the clearance brings it to $3.25. But if you have the John Frieda coupons for $3.00 off shampoos/conditioners, this brings the total down to .25 per bottle!! I also bought Frizz Eaze night serum that was marked down to 4.99 after the discount, and I also used my John Frieda styling product coupon for an additional $2.00 off of that. Combined with the Rite Aid video values coupon of $1.00 off, plus a $5.00 off of $25, I was able to get 7 bottles of shampoo/conditioner and one styling product for .79 cents…after tax and everything!!

      • clw2283

        That's awesome! Where did you find the $3.00 off coupon?

    • Eulaha

      Has ANYONE received the February 2010 P&G prepaid Visa card?? I submitted for mine on 2/14/10, and I still have yet to receive it! I contacted customer service two times via email, and they keep sending some generic message saying it could take up to six weeks.

      • Susan

        I've gotten mine. I don't know when I submitted it exactly but I'm pretty sure it was later than you. Sorry.

      • esturm1

        I did get mine already. Hope yours comes soon!

      • Jody

        I still haven't received mine and I submitted on 2/12/10. I emailed for the first time today. According to my calculations, the 6 week period they are referring to has past.

        • brandyt

          I haven't gotten mine either :(

      • amy

        Hi.. I submitted mine on February 9. and I had not received mine either. I decided to call the number on Riteaid rebates and the lady told me to add about two weeks to it because alot of the cards were backordered. Apparently, there were alot of them and they did not have enough!! It will come and if you do not receive it just call the number listed on riteaid.com under rebates and they will look it up for you.

      • Gina

        I just got mine in the mail on Friday.

      • AppleJacks

        Yes, I got my Visa card in the mail about two weeks ago.

    • triica

      does anyone know if at rite aid when you use a store coupon does it take that amount off of each one you buy, like at Walgreens? or do you have to have a store coupon for each one you buy? Like if I bought two of the finish Quantumatics would I need 2 of the rite aid store coupons to get $1.00 off each one or would one store coupon take $1.00 off each one?

      • RebeccaFer

        RA is not like Walgreens, you will need one in-ad coupon for each purchased product. :D

      • Caroline

        You need one store coupon per each item. If it is an in-ad coupon, you can just grab another, but if it is a printable from the video rewards, you may consider opening a second account or asking a friend who has an account if you can have theirs.

    • RebeccaFer

      Oh Man! I'm totally going to get me some crayons! Just kidding Jenny. I thought it was a cute lil' typo when I read:
      “Crayola Crayons, Pencils, Markers, Paint or Color Surge B1G1 50% off
      -$3 SCR $67 wyb $10″

      You're awesome and I'm so appreciative of all you do, even those rare typos that make me laugh. :D Thanks!

    • Eulaha

      Can someone please answer my question? It'll only take a minute. Have you received the February 2010 P&G prepaid Visa card?

      • Susan

        Not yet

      • lovesavingmoney

        I recieved mine..

      • Kristen

        I received mine too.

      • Jody


      • No

      • Deb

        I've heard that they ran our of the cards so there is a delay until they get the cards back in stock.

      • Becky

        No, I haven't and have been wondering where it was?

      • catherine

        Not yet, Submitted middle of Feb :(

    • krystal

      Does Rite Aid give an adjustments if you brought a product and then the product goes on sale? I just broght the Lysol No Touch today and I was wondering if could get any more back off it..

      • Susan

        I've never heard of them doing that. Why don't you just return it and buy it this week?

      • Brooke82

        Most stores will not do that.

      • Amanda

        If it is unopened and you have a receipt, you can just return it. Then rebuy it with your coupons this week. They could save themselves some paperwork by just giving you the difference. :) The choice to save paperwork depends on the store.

        • jengc

          I did that at my Rite Aid back in December. I told them I wanted to return it because I forgot to use a coupon. He said “I can just give you the money for the coupon” and I about fainted. I said “OH MAN YEAH!” I just couldn't believe that they would do that! So they might go ahead and give you the difference so they dont have to “restock” it or whatever they will do.

    • S_Carolina_Girl

      For the “Reading Glasses B1G1 50% off”, the rebate requires the price to be $17.99 or more. I couldn't find Foster Grant on Rite Aid's website, but the cheapest reading glasses I found online were $24.99.

      $17.99 – $24.99 Foster Grant Reading Glasses
      $9.00 – $12.50 Foster Grant Reading Glasses
      -$5.00 VV, Foster Grant Reading Glasses
      -$5.00 VV, Foster Grant Reading Glasses
      -$5/25 Rite Aid Coupon
      =$11.99-$22.49 OOP, plus $8 SCR #27 (makes them $3.99-$14.49, or $2-$7.25 each)

      It's not a great deal if they are $24.99, but if someone really wants them, I hope this helps!

    • Kat

      I have a question about the clean and clear. If they are B1G1 at 50% off with a $5 scr wyb $20 and they are priced at approximately $5.99, could you buy six items ($26.94) and use six $2/1 printable Q and six $2/1 in add Q for a final price of $2.94 plus tax out of pocket but end up making $2.06 after scr? Thanks!

      • Kat

        And could you use $5/$25 coupon at check out as well and owe nothing and make $5?

        • Ashley

          No, the in ad q's state only one per customer. You would have to break things in to six transactions and possibly go to multiple Rite Aid's to be able to use 6 $2 Ad Q's.

      • Yes. Good eye!

      • whitneybutler

        The Clean & Clear products are not B1G1 50% off, just the Neutrogena. The deal with the Clean $ Clear is the $2 off in-ad coupon.

    • I have just returned from my riteaid in Cleveland, TN tonight. I'm way behind since I was shopping for this week's deals on Saturday night :) My cashier was super friendly, helpful, and very nice, but there were a few changes to coupon uses I've had in previous trips. I had a $3 off $15, but he said that it had to be after all the other Q's had come off. I also tried to use multiple copies of the same Q, and a few of them (like the $3 off Huggies printable) stated one per purchase, so we had to make separate transactions for each of those. He was very nice and helped me separate the purchases and explained the changes to me. The only drawback is that I didn't have a total of $15 for my other transactions, but then I read on the Rite Aid 3 off 15 Q that it was one per customer, so that actually worked out as well. I'm not sure if all Rite Aids are doing this, or if it's a situation where it just depends on your cashier.

      • S_Carolina_Girl

        I had the same issue with the $ off $ coupons. I ended up e-mailing corporate, and was told that their policy is that these come off first, BEFORE any other coupons (store or manufacturer). I keep the e-mail with me so that if I ever run into the problem again, I can show them. Most of the time, though, when I start with “Your corporate coupon policy says…” they back off. It's all about knowing the rules before you go in. =)

        • Kristy

          Thanks! I didn't know if I had gotten my stores mixed up or if the policy had changed. I always go to the same store, and they've alway have taken the $/$$ qs first, so I didn't expect it to be a problem. The cashier was really nice, and he really was just trying to do things right, so I'm sure having a copy of the policy would have helped.

        • jengc

          Yup! I had resistance with the B1G1 instance where you end up getting 2 free. I said “well, your policy says you can get 2 free” he said “ok” and just did it. I try to keep a copy so they are not just taking my word. I am sure it makes them feel better. I might keep 2 copies in case they would like one LOL

      • heather

        My RA did that same thing to me last night. They made me wait till the end to use my $3 off $15, she said that she was told that is how they are supposed to be doing it from now on……..might try a different RA this week.

        • beckymcgarvey

          what i do is “hide” my regular coupons, check out, hand them the $/$$ and then say, “Oh yeah, I have other coupons too!” They've never given me any probs. I'm kinda non- confrontational and don't wanna bust out my “corporate policy” knowledge… but I will if i have to. :)

          • jengc

            LOL “Don't make me open my can of 'corporate policy' on you man! It's DEADLY!”

      • Ashley

        I'm sorry, but you should bring Rite Aid's corporate coupon policy with you. If I am not mistaken, it clears states that you may use and $/off coupon before using any other manufacturer coupons.

      • whitneybutler

        “one per purchase” just means per item. A “purchase” is the item itself. A “transaction” are all of those “purchases” totaled together. If the coupon states “one per purchase” you may use as many “per transaction” as you have of those specific items. This has nothing to do with Rite Aid coupon policy. Every cashier at every store is or should be instructed to follow the fine print of a coupon, but this just comes down to knowing your terminology. As far as the $3/15 coupon goes, it is Rite Aid's policy to accept one per transaction even from the same customer and that the purchase total after that coupon is to be established before any man q's are to be scanned. It is always a good idea to carry their official coupon policy with you just in case you ever run into any problems.

    • Cindylou_who

      At a few krogers in my area; they had tear away coupons for goody's hair products. 2 dollars off two, manufacter good anywhere, could use on this sale if you look out for them.

    • Suzette

      Make sure you get the (2) $2 off Pull Ups videos this month(expires 4/30). Combine those with the $2 off Pulls in the Sunday Paper 3/28 will make a good deal(expires 4/24)!

    • Ashley

      Remember, you can't do these exact scenarios unless you have multiple computers.

    • juile

      Prevacid 24 HR- $25.99-$10 SS 3/28= $15.99- $10 Video Value= $5.99 – $5 off of $25 = $0.99!

      • camib

        I just got back from Rite Aid and they wouldn't let me do this. The store coupon was accepted but the scanner wouldn't take the manufactured coupon. In the fine print of the store coupon it says not valid with any other coupon so they wouldn't accept it. I hope you have better luck than I did!

      • kelly1369

        The video values comes up as a manufacturer coupon though and even starts with a 5 – can that still be combined with the one from the paper?

        • kathipayne

          I tried that deal and no they wouldn't accept the Rite Aid printed coupon with the manufacturers coupon, because they both are actually manufacturers coupons. But it was still a lot cheaper so I got it for my Mom.

        • April

          My RA won't stack the video Q's and the regular manufacturer Q's. They used to but now they say that both Q's are manufacturer Q's and will only take one per item.

          • Amy

            I tried this today and my Rite Aid let me stack video Qs with regular mfr Qs. (The manager himself checked me out and I know he knows their coupon policies!) I love my Rite Aid. :)

    • Has anyone had luck finding the $5 off Lysol no touch hand system? I can't seem to find it in my SS today. Also, I went by my RA this morning and no luck on the 50% off either the Lysol no touch or Finish Dishwash prods. Maybe not in my area?? (Greenville SC)

      • amy

        I stopped by my Rite-Aid in Cleveland, TN and the Lysol No Touch and the Finish Quantimatic WERE NOT 50% off. I even asked the cashier to ring them up, and they rang-up at full price.

        • Susan

          The coupon was in a second, smaller Smartsource in the Atlanta Journal Constitution today.

        • kelly1369

          Same for my Goose Creek Rite Aid. :( I was sad :( Then they guy went on to try to tell me that this website was a big scam and I was like ha tell that to my bank account which has been saving an arm and a leg each week! I was like well, think what you want, everyone is entitled to their opinion however, if you haven't looked yourself, I don't think you are making an educated one!

          • Ashley

            I am absolutely appalled and frustated by what he said. I wish Jenny would make a post about how we are supposed to deal with people like this, and why in the world they act like this in the first place.

          • BWZsMom

            I couldn't find it either! (Wboro,SC) Way disappointed…oh well, all the other deals will make up for it! btw, Mean People Suck!!

        • Ashley J

          My Rite Aid was not 50% off either and no Veet sale either in Athens, Georgia. I guess we can't win them all.

      • MelissaDoss78

        I found the Q in my paper (B'ham News) but they weren't on sale at my local store :(

        • 3monkeysmom

          Walgreens has them on sale. $9.99 after the in-store coupon that's in the April coupon book. Use the $5 q to make it $4.99. Not as good as $1.49 but better than $14.99 :-)

      • MiriamG

        I am in the same area and the ad does not list the Finish Dishwash prods or the Veet products as B1G1. I also had the cashier ring them up just to check. Hope the ads will be the same in all areas from here on out. Bummer.

      Just return from store, the Lysol Hand Pumps weren't on sale Durham, NC!!! The manager was a total jerk when I tried to return it. My husband actually checked out the items, and when he came home, she didn't even give him the register receipt which I needed for my rebates. She also stated that she was sending my coupons off to corporate to be investigated. All of my coupons are totally legitimate. I am gong to write corporate and complain!!!!

      • Tracy

        In Alexandria, VA I bought the Lysol pump and some Crayola stuff this morning, I was a little flustered between it being my first Rite Aid coupon trip, trying to figure out which Crayola stuff was on clearance (not marked but some was), and rushing home before my kids woke up that I didn't realize the Lysol pump wasn't on sale until I got home.

        Now they did take both the $5 and $1 coupon, but it wasn't 50% off so I am going to try and return it this afternoon. I hope I don't have as much trouble as you (sorry the manager was so mean).

    • Brenda

      I just returned from Rite-Aid in Goose Creek, SC. Lysol & Finish are not 50% off.

      • whitneybutler

        It looks like these 50% off deals (Finish, Air Wick, Lysol) are not in the east* region circulars. Oh well :(

        • savin money

          I live in Rock Hill, SC and I got the sales paper with the 50% off wrapped around the whole ad. It was in the Charlotte Observer.

          • whitneybutler

            The South Carolina area stores may honor the deals if you take the circular in with you. However, the circulars in the store are going to be different and since your circular is from a paper in a different area they might not.

    • Emily

      I just tried to get the Clearsil B1G1 along with the 50% off Finish and Lysol Hand Dispenser and my Rite Aid said they knew nothing about these deals and nothing would ring up right. Is it regional?

    • kcreviews

      I was sad to find out this morning that the Secret/Old Spice deoderants and the Bic razors cost more at my Rite Aid then you said in this post, therefore not making it worth it for me to buy anything at Rite Aid this week. They also didn't have the exact Clean and Clear product I wanted. I was bummed walking out of the store with nothing.

    • Joanna

      The Lysol no touch soap thing, Finish dishwashing thing and Airwick were not 50 % at my store. Has anyone else found the same problem?

      • Anonymous

        These deals were all in a supplement that was released in the National Ad. Some areas received the short ad (I think the southeast particularly). Here is a .pdf of the national ad so you can see what was included (at the bottom labeled “Spring Savings Stock Up”). The lysol, airwick, finish, veet, and clearasil are all deals you can bet won’t be on sale at the stores if you received the short ad in your paper.


      • Hi, Joanna

        I ran into the same problem, none of those items were on sale, I don't know where someone got there information but it was wrong. I was so disappointed, because I had all my coupons with me for a good deal. I went to the Rite Aid in the South Congaree, West Cola, SC area. I'm sorry you had a bad experience and thanks for your posting.

        • MP

          Does anyone know if Airwick is on sale(50% off) in SC?

          • april

            all 3 were on sale at my rite aid in charlotte nc.

          • esturm1

            It's not.

        • Misty

          I think these must be regional, because OTHER FORUMS have them listed on sale too. Not in my RA not in ad either.

      • JeannieT

        Same here. Not ringing up and they thought I was crazy. She said I was the 8th person to ask about the Finish and Lysol. Where was it posted originally?

    • stacy0906

      Is anyone else having problems with the video values? I cannot connect and haven't been able to for about 3 days.

      • marysc

        I have been on several times in the past 24 hours without any problem.

    • kwarp

      can anyone tell me where the 5$ off Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap System is?? because it'e not in the newspaper or on ss coupon website…

      • ape

        mine was in the ss today. there were two ss's, and it was in the smaller one. i'm in charlotte nc so not sure if it was a ymmv thing

    • 3monkeysmom

      The Clean and Clear coupon is already out of prints :-(

      • rachelmahayla

        I just printed it and it worked fine

        • 3monkeysmom

          I tried again and it is still telling me “there are no prints available for this campaign.”
          Oh well :-(

          • lisasavemoney

            I was just able to print 2.

            • 3monkeysmom

              Wonder what's up with that. I tried to print from the website and even after I allowed pop-ups from them, it still wouldn't print. There was a link in the email they sent me after registering and that was the one that told me there were no more prints available.
              Are you all getting them from the site or from the email link? Maybe that is making the difference….

            • lisasavemoney

              I clicked on the link above, registered and then I was able to print it from their site. I never went to my email.

    • Ashley

      I can't believe there haven't been any new comments since yesterday…. plus there is a huge problem all through the states about Jenny's ad not being correct. The Finish, Lysol, Airwick, Veet… none of it is on sale in the ad as Jenny listed.

      Jenny, do you know what's up or has anyone found out some information on this?

      • Ashley

        Whoops, something was wrong w/my computer…. There have been new comments :)

      • me

        I went to try to get all of these items on the Sunday & they were all full price I thought maybe I printed the wrong weeks deals as I had done one other time. It takes me an hour to get to the closest rite-aid round trip. not complaining…They have great deals! Last month was my first time shopping there & doing thier rebates. I got over $850.00 in items and OOP was $27.63 after coupons & rebates. That was the best savings I have ever got anywhere. I do shopping for all of my family & alot of donating so this was great. THANKS JENNY!!!

      • Lisa Shepherd

        Rite aid deals are regional. Jenny states right at the top that your Rite-aid may not have all the deals.

    • I did this deal just a little while ago in Rockmart, GA and was very pleased. The only thing I changed was I bought a cordial cherry for .33 and that brought my total up to $20 so I got to use the $5 off $20 and only paid .75 oop. WOOHOO!!! Also I have to say my cashier was awesome!!

      Transaction #2
      (1) Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System $7.49

    • bettykp

      Just got back from a shopping trip in Inman, SC went to the Rita Aid to get the Finish Quantumatic Kit 50% off (reg. $10.59).. They said it was not on sale and didn't know where I got my info but, it was wrong? Any one else had this happin ?

      • Amber

        I went to the Jefferson Road Rite-Aid in Athens, GA, and the same thing happened to me. Too bad, since it was the main purpose of the trip. Used an old RA gift card to get some Clean and Clear oil-absorbing sheets (used Qs), Quench for the rebate, and some shaving cream (alas, no Qs on those, since I wasn't planning on them.)

    • TS

      I just returned from Rite Aid Lex SC & some of the things that were listed 50% off were actually not (eg. Finish Quantumatic, Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System, & Air Wick Ultra Freshmatic. Other things had some major discrepancies as well. So sad..

      • Mom2teenagers

        TS- I'm in Lexington too. Head's up on a couple of items you were hoping for. The Finish Quantumatic is $0.39 at Publix after coupons. It's regularly $6.39 and I stacked the $3 Publix coupon from the One Stop One Store booklet with the $3 printable above.
        The Lysol No Touch is $3.99 at Target after coupons. It's regularly $9.99 and I stacked a $1 Target q along with the $5 manu q. Good Luck!

      • Kim

        same here….asked a manager and he said they DO NOT honor printed versions of other regional ciruclars :(

      • Amy

        I had the exact same experience here in Columbia! (The Rite Aid on Long Green Parkway). I had printed out the coupons for the same three things and none of them were on sale; had to totally re-plan my transactions on the spot!

    • Michelle

      Lysol hand soap dispenser and Finish products are not on sale at the Rite Aid in Columbia off Clemson Road. I went there to get both with a Clean and Clear product, and had the cashier ring them up to see if they were for sale and just not marked. They are not! So sad, but still got a good deal on Secret deodorant.

    • pharmSCgirl

      I went to Rite Aid this morning when they opened at 8 am to see if they had any of the lysol and finish products in stock. I found what I was going to buy and got to the register. The only other person in there was the manager and he was super nice. He said that he didn't know why they weren't on sale since I saw them online. I told him it must just be a regional sale and was not upset. He was super nice and asked for me to try to print the sales ad and bring it in. He apologized several times. The Boiling Springs, SC store gets kudoos for being so kind everytime I go in there.

      • littlemisssaveit

        yes! I love my boiling springs rite aid! I am new to couponing and have only shopped at this rite aid and never had any problems…

        I just looked through all my SS and not a single No Touch coupon…this stinks!

    • Kazzy

      Charlotte, NC Rite Aid….Had lysol soap dispenser, quantumatic at 50% off 7.49 and 5.49 …also they took my stacked coupons as well.

      • Lulu

        Are the Lysol soap dispenser and quantumatic listed in a Charlotte, NC weekly ad at 50% off? If so, can you tell me which store and the page number of the ad listing so that I can print a copy for my local Rite Aide to price match?

        • Kazzy

          Yes the ad was not in Sunday's paper and we bought 3. My husband picked up the flyers at the store.(tryon & arrowood rd) The price of those items were not listed in the ad but were pictured at 50% off on the front page. It was a half page that was on the outer layer. The page says S1 at the bottom right. Hope that helps

    • Ginger

      My local Rite Aid's do not have the lysol & quantum 50% off but I have been told if I printed it and brought it in they would honor it BUT does anyone know how I can print the attached ad? It's blocked for security purposes. TIA

      • whitneybutler

        I have a .pdf of it and would be happy to email you the attachment if you want. Then you should be able to print it.

    • faithshea

      I went to RA today and was planning to to purchase the Lysol No Touch and the Finish Quantumatic for 50% off, but it was not marked that way nor listed in their ad. I asked the cashier in front of the manager to scan them both for me and she did. Neither rang up on sale. I told the manager that I had seen online that it should be on sale. He told me that if I could bring in the ad he would honor it. Would it be on sale regionally, and maybe not at my particular store?

    • my store didnt have the airwick or veet strips ;( but i sub'd 2/$5 garnier fructis shampoo and conditioner for them, so i paid less, but only because my order was less. bummer about the veet though, i really wanted to try them!

    • tuckyblue

      anyone know how to get the pdf file to print? for the 50% off stock up page. found ad can't get it to print.

    • sandy

      my rite aid ad doesn't show the lysol no touch dispenser at all. This this adverstized in store? I live in nashville tn. So I'm really hoping it's not just a regional thing :(

      • Linda

        Same thing in Dickson, not on sale in the store. I just ran next door to Walgreens and picked up their last one for $5.

      • Suzette

        same here! :(

      • jenniferbriggs

        I live in TN. It wasn't on sale here either. I was bummed. Oh well, there is always next time.

        • Amy

          It wasn't on sale at my Rite Aid here in Columbia either. :( It was $14.99! I had the worst luck this week; most of the things on my Southern Savers shopping list were either not on sale after all, or my Rite Aid didn't carry them at all. (I checked to make sure they weren't just sold out.)

          • Suemh

            It's not on sale in my ad either. But then, I also did not get the coupon in my Greeville News.

    • aluv5102

      my rite aid never has the stuff on sale like i see it online…but i get the sales paper out of the AJC and they honor the price

    • lynn

      My area is one of the “short ads” areas too. Lots of the great deals are not on sale here. What I've been able to do…. If I know what area the sale is, I go to the Rite Aid website, and click on weekly circular, then I type in the zip code for the area that DOES have the sale, then I print the page or pages that show the items on sale. I take that to my local Rite Aid, and they honor the national sale prices!

    • BeverlyB

      Did anyone else have any problems with filing their SCR receipts from last week online?? I've shopped Rite Aid almost every week for three months and have never had any problems with filing online. I filed two receipts at the same time from the same day. The first one got rejected the next morning, even though I KNOW I had the right items and sizes (Huggies diapers & swim diapers). The second receipt has hung in limbo for over a week now, being neither rejected or accepted. It's almost as if something's wrong with their system right now. Did anyone else have any problems, or am I the only one? I've never had problems before, so this is a little puzzling!

      • Susan

        I've been doing SCR forever and have never had problems, either, until this past month. I've had to make several calls to customer service, but they've straightened it out everytime. I would encourage you to call right away—about both the rejected and “in limbo” receipts.

      • Heather

        I've had the exact same problem with Pull Ups and Little Swimmers. I sent them an email last night and they are basically saying the same thing the system says, 'unqualified purchase', item now showing up as an SCR……I guess I'll call customer service tomorrow.

      • jessc5

        Yep, I'm having the same problem with the Cottonelle. I have never had problems until last week.

        • BeverlyB

          Yeah, the Cottonelle receipt is the one still hanging in limbo. There is something wacky going on with their computer system! I sent an e-mail to Customer service yesterday but still haven't heard back. Hope I hear something soon. I'll call if they say my items still aren't qualified. I will NOT take that for an answer!

          • Susan

            Same here with the Cottonelle purchase. I just emailed Rite Aid. Hope to hear something soon and be credited so I can request my check!

      • Faye

        I'm having problems with one receipt not posting. I've called customer service multiple times because I want to request my rebate check of nearly $40. The hold up is Frizz Ease #4 SCR. They keep putting me off and I don't know what else to do. It has been 8 days since I posted the receipt.

        In addition, the Cottonelle didn't post and they are mailing me a separate check for that. I can't figure out why they won't be as helpful on the Frizz Ease receipt?

        Any ideas of what I can try now? I've called several times and emailed them daily.

        • My mom and I are both having the same problem with our receipts being in limbo for the KAO rebate. I e-mailed them yesterday and have not heard back yet. If I don't hear anything before Monday I am going to be calling them to see what's up!

      • Lisa Shepherd

        I'm having problems too. Just these last couple of weeks.

    • chapinlady

      I just made a trip to Rite Aid with nothing to show for it. They said they didn't know anything about these items being 50% off. They wouldn't even scan for me…Lysol No Touch, Finish or AirWick FreshMatic. I didn't want to get into with the manager as I might have to go there again, (but I hope not) so I just left. Thanks for letting me vent. Really appreciate everything you do.

    • lissy1198

      Can anyone tell me where to find the $5 off the Lysol starter kit??

      • Amanda

        It was in the paper this weekend in the smartsource 3/28. Hope this helps

    • Judy

      This was my first visit to Rite Aid since I started couponing Feb. 4th. I started out with CVS first and didn't want to overload my brain trying to understand too many stores in the beginning. Let me just say WOW! I did scenario #2 and got the Lysol dispenser (which we love!), the Finish Quantumatic kit and the clean and clear. The Lysol dispenser wasn't marked but rang up just fine. The cashier was very nice and took all SEVEN coupons without a word. Now I want to go back and get 3 more Clean and Clear to get the SCR:)
      I think I'm going to like Rite Aid!

    • I just got back from my rite aid…I was going to try and get one more Lysol system but the manager told me that 3 other people were looking for the very same thing. He said that he just had a video conference with other managers in the area and no one has any of them. Bummer. They wont get any more in until next week probably after the ad is over.

      • Susan

        They should be able to give you a raincheck.

    • Teresa

      what zip are you using for this Rite Aid ad?


    • lto

      Where do you see the Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System 50% off (reg. $14.99) in the ad, I do not see it in my ad. Stopped by my store and was not on sale


      • Amanda

        Same here not advertised in my paper, but I went to the store to check anyway and they were not on sale..Lexington NC

    • tracyt

      Middle TN Rite Aid add does not have Lysol No touch or Finish Quantramatic on sale this week. It's not in the add and it's not on sale at the store. Just came home disappointed about wasting my time.

      • tracyt

        Not on sale in Murfreesboro

    • Susan

      There is definitley something wrong with the SCR computer system—I've never had so many problems as I've had in the past few weeks! My receipts from Friday are still hanging in “limbo”—they always clear in like 2 days. UGH!!!!

    • Randy

      I just tried to use the Coupon in the flyer and another manuf. coupon and was told no. I pulled out the Rite Aid coupon policy that I had printed and they said it had just been changed. I can no longer find it on the web either???

    • megan10

      Any advice on whether I can use these coupons together? For the old spice deodorant, which are priced at $2.50 each with a $2 scr when you buy 2, I have a $1 off when you buy 2 deodorants, and I have a buy one old spice deodorant, get one free, both of these coupons expire tomorrow so I'm hoping to use them in some way, if I were able to use these I would make a profit of 50 cents, anyone have any advice on if I can use these together since I'm buying 2 items it would be like a coupon for each item. Thanks!

      • Susan

        Yes, you can use together.

        • megan10

          Ok thanks, I'm gonna give it a try.

    • carolina

      I don't know if anybody else is having this problem, my RA does not have the Veet products or the Finish quantumatic. :(
      I didn't see them in the weekly ad either ….I went shopping and I came back home empty handed :(

    • Felicia

      The Rite Aid in Five Points (Columbia) and the one on Bush River @ Broad River are not offfering the Lysol No Touch Hand Soap System for half price… :(

      • Suzi

        I would also like to know this….

      • Susan

        15 off 25??!?!? Probably won't be new 3 off 15 or 5 off 25 coupons…..they are not an every month occurence.

        • CoachA

          The red plum site using zip code 10001 (NEW YORK) has a $5 off $25 currently (4/02/10) that expires 05/31/10. I'd rather have a $3 off $15 myself also.

      rite aid brand loratadine and cetirizine are bogo at rite aid this week and they just sent out a printable for $5 off either one (http://offers.riteportal.com/954/ra_allergy_coup_exp63010.pdf). Should make for some cheap allergy meds!

    • selinaj

      Will there be a new $3/$15 coupon for April? I use this Q more frequently than the $5/$20

      • Susan

        Probably not–you don't see those very often.

    • giggles


      Jenny has done a phenomenal job in teaching us about coupon etiquette and how it is rude to clean off the shelves in the stores!!! She has also taught us that when the store accepts competitor coupons the store is taking a loss so we should consider this as “icing on the cake.” But, we should not be abusing the use of competitor coupons!! For example, I shop at the Publix in Stockbridge, GA and they are NO longer accepting the video value Rite Aid coupons because someone has been abusing them!! Someone tried to use 11 Rite Aid ($5 off 25) coupons in one day, and bought 24 boxes of Chocolate Cheerios leaving none for the rest of the customers. So, now the rest of us are suffering because of one person's greed!!

      I'm in NC and I've got the skinny on the AD issue (right from the store manager). There are high volume stores and low volume stores. The low volume stores do not include the additional sale of the 50% off items such as Lysol No Touch, Finish Quantumatic and such. I pulled up the national ad on my phone (Side Note: New Droid Eris – best ever coupon helper while at the store.) and asked her if she would honor the national ad at her store and she said “Yes”! Woo Hoo! I'm just perfecting my different drug store shopping methods and here is my first really awesome Rite Aid trip:

      Why are the $3 off $15 & $5 off $25 still showing the 3/31/10 exp. date?? Did I do something wrong??

    • My mom and I are both having the same problem with our receipts being in limbo for the KAO rebate. I e-mailed them yesterday and have not heard back yet. If I don't hear anything before Monday I am going to be calling them to see what's up!
