    • Adele

      Does anyone know how many points you need to earn a $1 coupon from Coke rewards? After all this time I am finally entering our codes. Thanks! Adele

    • Brandy

      Above, is it Rice Krispies cereal or treats that are on sale? If it’s cereal, then there are the $1.00 off coupons out.

    • Beth

      It’s 35 points for $1.00 off a Coke 12-pack

    • Melissa C.

      Brandy, it’s treats.

    • I discovered a good Zyrtec deal- moneymaker-

      24ct bottles of Zyrtec are on sale for $18.99, and there’s an in-ad coupon for $5. In the paper last week (or the week before?), there were coupons for $4/1 Zyrtec. Combine these for $9 off one, paying $9.99 for one bottle.
      Then…there’s the following scr’s:
      #15 scr for $2 wyb one zyrtec
      #50 scr for $10 wyb $25 of J&J products (of which zyrtec is one)
      $500 scr for $25 gift card wyb $50 of allergy products (of which zyrtec is included)

      So, buy three at $56.97 before coupons and use the $5 and $4 coupons. Then use a $5/$25 purchase printable coupon: pay $24.97+ tax oop and get back
      $12 rebate and $25 gift card.

      Profit: $12.03

    • Heidi

      Our Rite Aid has Huggies wipes for $1.99 this week. Does anyone know if this is a good deal when using 75 or 50 cent coupons?? Thanks!!

    • Rebecca

      Does Rite Aid give you a hard time about using three of the same coupons, like Zyrtec, in one transaction from their ad? It says limit one per customer on the $5 Zyrtec coupon in the ad. I would love to be able to do it in one transaction to use the $5 off $25 coupon. Thanks in adavnce for your response(s)!

    • Adele

      Have they pulled the coke rewards $1 coupon? I have enought points to print one, but do not see it in the list of rewards available.

    • Rebecca- I have not found it to be a problem. You’re right, it does say that, so I guess they could refuse to do it, but I forget it’s on there b/c they always let me do it. I guess it could be a ymmv thing. Good luck!

    • Kim

      Do you have to use rite aid coupons in a particular order? I want to do the zyrtec deal and need to know if I should use the in ad cpn. before the one from the Sunday paper. They both say manufacturer. Can you really use both at the same time?

    • Lori

      Offer #15 Zrytec is for 45 count, the one’s on sale this week is the 30count. But it’s still a great deal with the other offers!

    • Kerri

      Zyrtec Deal – How do you get away with using the in ad coupon 3 times? My rite – aid wouldn’t let me us it 3 times in one transaction. the couon says 1 per transaction/purchase…can’t remember the exact wording.

    • Adrienne

      Couldn’t you break the Zyrtec deal into three transactions? If there are other things that you want from Rite Aid you could potentially use more than one $5 off $25 and then use one Rite Aid coupon for each visit. Do the SCRs work over multiple transactions?

    • Joel

      Call me a rookie, but I don’t understand how you only paid 24.97 + tax oop on 3 Zyrtecs? Did you buy 3 papers to get 3 of the in ad coupon? Thank you for your time!!!

    • Joel, you can get the Rite Aid ads in store, so you don’t have to buy papers- you can get as many as you want.

      Adrienne- you certainly could- even if you just did them all separately without buying $25 each time, you’d still have a profit of 7.03

      Kim- Rite Aid allows you to stack Rite Aid in-ad q’s with manu q’s.

      Kerri- it’s YMMV, my Rite Aid will let me use as many as I want, but I can see that some would not let you do that.

      Lori- shoot! I thought I double-checked that. Well, it’s still a good moneymaker even without that $2scr. :)

    • oh and Jenny- thanks for the printable link! I needed two more q’s so my husband could do the deal as well. I NEED the zyrtec!! (and free/mm;s are always a plus!) :)

    • tonya

      i got rebate #500 ($25 gift card) for april. can i do it again in may?

    • Ashley

      on the razor deal is there a limit on how many you can purchase(or get free)? Also is there a limit on the SCR for the razors? Thanks in advance!!!

    • Ashley

      nevermind. I see where it says limint 4.

    • Joel

      Thanks Brandy! Kim, did you ever find out the answer to your question? And does anyone know if we can use more than one $5/$25 coupon in one transaction? Thanks again for everyone’s help!

    • Laura

      You might want to check the #500 Zyrtec deal. The fine print says that the “rebate is based on the actual price paid (after any and all coupons are used).” Looks like Brandy’s deal would only qualify for a $5 gift card. Am I wrong?

    • tonya

      nevermind on comment #17…i see “limit one gift card for all purchases made 3/29 – 5/30”.

      and i’ve already recieved scr #50 (j & j products).

      can’t do the zyrtec deal this time. it was fun trying to figure out.

    • Kim- the in-ad q may say manu q, but it is not- the bar code begins with RC, so it is a Rite Aid q. I haven’t found that handing over the q’s in any specific order matters.

    • Stacey

      Brandy or anyone who can answer:

      Has anyone tried the Zyrtec deal? After reading the SCR #500 ($25 gift card) wyb $50 in Allergy Products, it states “REBATE BASED ON ACTUAL PRICE PAID (AFTER ANY & ALL COUPONS ARE USED).” If this is the case, the only rebate this would be eligible for is the SCR #50 $10 wyb $25 in Johnson & Johnson products. SCR #15 $2 wyb (1) Zyrtec is for 45 ct.

      If someone has done this deal and has already entered it into the RiteAid.com site, I would like know what SCR’s it is eligible for.

      Thank you,

    • Sylvie

      Stacey (and others)

      I’m not sure if this info will help, but I did the Allergy Deal SCR #500 with the generic zyrtec when it was on sale b1g1 last month. I did it as 2 transactions and used a $5/25 coupon both times. Since it was Rite Aid brand, I didn’t do another coupon (I don’t think that it was one that required an in-ad coupon, but it’s been several weeks, so I can’t remember exactly)

      BUT I did use the 2 $5/$25 coupons and according to Rite Aid, my transactions qualified and my cards are being processed.

      Hope this helps.

    • M Rose

    • Jenni from Spartanburg

      Hey guys! Just wanted to let anyone who might be interested know that at Rite Aid (the one across from Westgate Mall at least)that the Axe products are ringing up BOGO, not just BOGO 50% off! I bought 2 body washes last night AND an Axe clearance deo for $7 with the 2 coupons AND I will end up getting all 3 items for $5 after doing the single check rebate! There were 2 different places in my ad from sunday’s paper that had the Axe products listed one for bogo and for for 50%. I asked the cashier which one was correct and she called the manager over and I got the cheaper price! yaaaaay! hope this helps someone out there! many thanks jenny for all that you do!

    • Tiffani

      Hi. What does SCR stand for?

      • Jenny

        SCR stands for Single Check Rebate. It is the name of their rebate system.

    • Tiffani

      Oh, OK. I should have figured that one out myself. LOL! Thanks. And thanks so much for this site. WOW! We are eating such a variety now. We weren’t doing coupons before and then I “stumbled” across this site and our eyes were opened to a whole new coupon world! Every night my kids and husband are saying “Mom, you’ve out done yourself again. Thanks for dinner!” LOL! No more of the same cheap foods. Now we eat good cheap food. This site is a true blessing and I thank God for it.

    • Hey! Anyone figure out if #500 works with the Zyrtec deal yet? I bought my stuff today, but I’m waiting to see what processes.

    • jen

      fyi the one in mauldin sc has 75% off going out of business

    • Laura

      Has anyone else encountered a problem with Rite Aid and internet coupons? Yesterday I tried to use this scenariro:

      2 – 24oz Planters Peanuts BOGO @ 5.99
      2 – Axe Shower Gel BOGO @ 4.99 (w/ 2.00 SCR)
      2 – Quattro Sensitive 4 Ct Refill BOGO @ 11.29 (w/ 2.00 SCR)
      1 – Charles Worthington Hair Product 5.99 (w/4.00 SCR)
      1 – $5.00 off $25.00 coupon IP
      2 – $1.00 Planters Peanuts IP
      2 – $4.00 Schick Razor Mfg.C
      2 – $1.00 Axe Body Wash Mfg.C

      Total OOP w/Tax: $12.88
      Total SCR $ 8.00
      Total OOP $ 4.88 = $0.69 each item for $50.53 of stuff.

      I had it all worked out (so I thought). Then the manager said that I can only use 1 internet coupon (the 5 off 25) and that I couldn’t use the peanut coupons. Then he told me I could only use one of the $4.00 Schick coupons. Then I decided to leave without my purchases. Anyway, just wondered if anyone else has had a similar problem. I was so proud of myself for figuring out such a great deal…and had to leave without my peanuts… :0(

    • Karsten

      I’ve had the same problem with my Rite Aid. The first time they took all my coupons, the second she said she could only take internet coupons up to $5 so I left, then 3rd time they said they didn’t take internet q’s at all and I let her know that the Ass. Mgr. had just told me a week before that they would take up to $5 and she took them. They’re very finnicky!

    • Laura

      Thanks Karsten,
      Just gave up on the deal 4 last wk & took my bus. 2 CVS and Harris Teeter. Went today 2 the other Rite Aid in town and was able to do Jenny’s first scenario w/o a hitch (ALL internet coupons) ‘cept 4 the fact that the cashier took the peelie coupon off the saline wash & scanned it B4 I could hand over the 5.00 off coupon. So I bought a pack of gum to make my total 25.00. LOL Guess it is just luck of the draw with the cashiers/managers. The funniest thing is that I am almost positive that the man that checked me out was the same manager from the other store that told the cashier not to take my internet coupons. I almost didn’t even try to shop when I saw him at the register… Go figure???? Have a great week!

    • Sharpie-Queen

      The #500 deal will work, coupons or not. I purchased four products at totally different times, and this is what it looks like (plus I just found out that the alaway from this week counts too!):

      500 – Allergy Allergy $25 Rite Aid Gift Card Yes
      Details for Rebate 500 – Allergy Purchased Store Reg Trans Product Name Qty Amount
      05/17/09 00:00 AM B&L Alaway Eye Itch 10Ml 1 $7.99
      05/16/09 00:00 AM Zyrtec 10Mg Tab 30Ct 1 $18.99
      04/25/09 00:00 AM Claritin 24Hr 10Mg 30Ct 1 $19.99
      04/18/09 00:00 AM Zyrtec 10Mg Tab 14Ct 1 $12.99
      Total 4 $59.96

      I obviously used coupons for all of these, so they are calculating the store price (reg. or sale). Hope this helps!

    • Sharpie-Queen

      I need advice… My Rite Aid would not take both the in-ad coupon for the zyrtec last week and the $4 coupon. I was in a hurry, but I did go back the following day and asked her why (it was $5 I was missing out on! Or I could have used the in-ad one instead for $5 instead of the $4 one!). She, not so nicely, said that they were both manufacturer’s coupons, which I understand, but I thought they were different as they are in-ad. She said no. She commented how I had used $30 worth of coupons and she remembered and could find it in the office to prove it to me… Not the fight I was looking for…
      Anyway, after reading these posts, I am wondering if it is worth the $5 fight (I was over it). Can I legitimately argue the case? This is not something I want to do, understand, but the point is to save money HONESTLY and I will do it to the best of my ability! :)
