    • Michelle

      are they against us? ;D there aren't any great deals this week AGAIN. guess i'm skipping rite-aid 2 weeks in a row

      • Erin

        You know, I wasn't too excited about last week, either, which is why I didn't bother going til yesterday. I wanted the U tampons and to finish my Aveeno rebate, but I was stuck at around $5 or $6 OOP. Coming up with a scenario that worked for me was tough, but I finally gave in, purchasing Tresemme to reduce my OOP, and I spent $1.48, including tax (and my state taxes before coupons are applied!) and I'll get the $3 tampon rebate, plus the $5 Aveeno rebate. I felt pretty good about that, but it was so much *work* that I'm more than happy to take a week off!

      • Kazzy

        Yeh, not feelin' it from Rite Aid recently…Past few weeks haven't been money makers for me like April was…I do so enjoy my “paycheck” rebates. My husband calls my couponing a “full-time job” and that I deserve to get paid for it. I agree!

    • Was anyone able to find the $5/$25 @ Redplum?

      • Amanda

        I wasn't able to find it either.

      • Jerry

        I got the $5/$25 coupon last week, but it is gone this week.

        BTW, does anybody know of a Website that has supermarket deals in the Northeast? SouthernSavers helps me immensely for deals at Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS, and Target, and with finding out which circulars to get, but I would love to see a Website that has supermarkets near me.

        • Jenn

          Try zip 29414 at the redplum site….

          • Jerry

            Thanks, but it didn't work. I tried it at different times on different computers, but no luck.

        • aclanford

          I just printed it. Use the zip Jenny said to use and the 50 mile radius. It was on the 3rd or 4th page. HTH.

    • rainyday13

      There is a $1/1 planters nuts 16oz or larger blinkie that can be found in Kroger.

    • KrisAllen

      I was able to work last week into a profit, but this week…PASS

      • Meme

        I agree. I won't even go in this week.

    • bdg

      What about the Huggies diapers deal that I saw listed on iheartriteaid.com? 8.99 Huggies with 1 SCR and wipes were 2 for 5? Is that NOT happening, I really need to stock up on diapers, lol!!

      • I searched through the May rebates and only saw the one for the swim diapers. Really if you have a CVS near you the deal ending today is a much better deal.

      • Erin

        It isn't a rebate. They are on sale for $8.99; it says “-$1 coupon in most papers = $7.99.”

      • sixsigmamom

        there is still the deal where you buy 5 packs and get a voucher for one pack free

        • Jen

          Yes, the voucher for the 6th pack is rebate #800. HTH

      • Kate

        My ad did list Huggies wipes 2 for $5. Diapers are listed $8.99 no SCR but minus $1 video values coupon. There doesn't seem to actually be a video values coupon though.

    • Amanda

      There is no more coupons available for the Johnson & johnson

    • amyinsc

      I couldn't find the Rite Aid coupon either, but when you use that zip code, you get a $2/2 Jimmy Dean Sausage! That's a pretty high value! When I used my zip code (SC), it was only $1/2.

      • Krista_A

        Thanks, I needed the sausage!

    • Susan

      I think RA made a mistake in their circular—I see on the pdf of the circular that Huggies are on sale for $8.99 minus the $1 video values coupon….but RA did not have a Huggies vv coupon to view in April (expiring end of this month) or May (expiring end of June). Their only diaper vv coupons were for the new Tugaboos.

      • I called them today and they are going to look in to it on Monday so keep your eye out for it. They said they think it was a mistake but will call me Monday to let me know. ThanksCrystal

    • hjstearns

      I was afraid the new savings card was going to put a damper on the SCRs. Hate that it seems I was right about this one :(

      • Ashley

        What do you mean? What is the damper?

      • Krista_A

        I agree, the SCR deals have started to gradually decrease :(

    • pharmSCgirl

      There is a SCR deal with the Style Science or Foster Grant Sunglasses. If the ad gives $10 off and you use the $5 or $10 video value coupon, you can also get the SCR #7 of $2 (Limit 2). This may make for some pretty cheap sunglasses. I looked at them a few weeks ago and I think they ranged from maybe $15 – $30. Just thought I would share. Other than that it seems like a pretty slow week for Rite Aid to me as well.

    • pharmSCgirl

      There's a $2 SCR (#7) deal with the Foster Grant or Style Science Sunglasses. With them being $10 off this week along with the video value coupons and SCR this may make for some pretty cheap sunglasses. I looked at these a few weeks ago and I believe they were about $25 (however, I can't really recall). It looks like another slow week to me as well. Maybe somebody can find some good deals to share.

      • Emilytwinmom

        I just tried this, and the sunglasses don't ring up as $10 off, the mgr told me it was referring to the $10 coupon in video values – I was rather confused, and thought he was mis informed… but didn't get the glasses!

        • pharmSCgirl

          Weird, b/c my ad shows that they are $10 off. It doesn't say anything about the video value coupon. Maybe it's one of those deals that vary by region. Look in your sales ad to see if it's listed in there. I'm going to try to make it to Rite Aid, but it won't be til the end of the week.

          • Susan

            Our ad (I live in same town as emilytwinmom) says $10 off, too, but there is no sign in the store and sunglasses aren't ringing up that way. Hence, the manager explaining the mistake in the circular. Lots of typos this week–no Huggies vv coupon as the circular lists, either.

            • Rachel

              Some styles are $10 off on sale. Other styles have the $10 off coupon. You can't stack them because the styles that are on sale don't apply to the coupon. However there is a $2 SCR on all Style Science and Foster and Grant sunglasses.

              I was looking at the Style Science Polar Vision. They are $20 and can use the $10 off video values coupon. I will be using a $5/20 as well so polarized sunglasses for $5. Not bad! Happy Father's Day, honey! (shhh don't tell him..)

    • melissakeeton

      My kroger has had a tear pad for Planters peanuts for $1 off each! for about a month now. This makes good deal on the Planters Peanuts…anyone know if Rite Aid will let you use a coupon for each item when they're bogo free?

      • Emilytwinmom

        Just got two jars of peanuts, and used the dollar off each coupon from Kroger – worked perfectly!

        • Anonymous

          ok. thanks. I just found Planters coupons (store) on target.com I printed and maybe publix will do a good sale on these soon. if Not I’ll use the store and manu coupons there. :)

      • seagull7

        Yes, it states in their company coupon policy that they accept two coupons for 2 items – even if one is “free”. You may want to snoop around the internet and find a copy of it and print it and have it handy. (I can't remember where I got mine exactly now….)

    • I thought I saw a “filler item–gellatin, $.19” Was that for another store, or another date? I was really excited about it but now I don't see it listed. Just wondering what I'm missing right now. TIA

      • Krista_A

        That is for Walgreens this week

      • Krista_A

        That's for the Walgreens ad this week

    • tsunamimommy

      I haven't found the RP $5/$25 RA either depsite using several different zips. Anyone have any luck. I even tried again today, thinking that maybe it didn't start until today. Oh, well, will look again Monday.

      • jeckelann

        never found the rite-aid coupon either…

      • Karen

        I just printed it out twice by entering the 90210 zip

        • tsunamimommy

          Thanks. Went back and tried 90210 and even went back and tried it with 50mile radius with zero luck. Any more suggestions will be most welcomed.

          • Rebecca

            Usually works using a detroit, cleveland, or cincinnati zip (I think a cleveland) Look several weeks back on her rite aid posts, it's there – best of luck

            • tsunamimommy

              Sorry, thought I was replying to you and replied to Karen twice. Again, thanks so much and zip is 43666! RIteAid on last page.

        • tsunamimommy

          Found it. Zip 43666!!!!

        • tsunamimommy

          Finally. Had to enter 43666 zip!!! Thank you.

          • Rebecca

            Glad you found it. I had a minute and went to find it for you, but you already got it. Good

    • Melanie

      When I hit “Create List”, nothing that I clicked on under “Personal Care” is showing up. Any reason why?

      • Elizabeth

        My list isn't showing up correctly either.

    • Anonymous

      Wow, got a great diaper deal today! Bought 3 packs of Huggies for $8.99 each, used a $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon, plus 3 $3 off manufacturer coupon (from Coupons.com). I paid a total of $14.57 for all 3 packs!!! That’s only about $4.75 each. It says Rite Aid had another $1 coupons for watching a video, but I couldn’t find it.

      • Shelley

        Good Deal! I have those coupons, too, so I'll head over soon. I also never could find the rite aid huggies coupon.

    • Meme

      If you do the Duracell rebate, will they let you qualify with $14.97? Or will they insist it be exactly $15? In this week's circular, they are on sale for $4.99 each, and I was going to buy 3 of them…

      • Susan

        I would think $15.00–but you can always buy 3 of them, wait 2 days and enter your receipt and see what happens. If it doesn't work, you could go back and buy another before the sale is off. But, I'm pretty sure you have to spend $15.

      • lynn

        It won't accept it, even if you're only three cents away. It has to be OVER $15. Check the clearance section and the battery aisle though, my Rite Aid has some Duracell batteries on clearance 75% off. I was able to get some 4 packs of AA batteries for .99 which pushed me over the $15 mark without having to spend another $4.99

    • Logansmom318

      Just had my first Rite-Aid trip. I think I did pretty well really :) Got 2 boxes of cereal (the B1G1) Used a $1.50 off 2 printable. Used the in-ad coupon and a printable coupon for the Reach toothbrush and picked up my free picture mousepad to use my free coupon from the video rewards. The mousepad was on sale for $9.99 but the coupon still took the full value of $12.99 off so I ended up paying a total of $1.02 out of pocket! Yay! :)

      • Christy

        Where did you get the free picture mouse pad? Is that over? Where is the $12.99?

        • Logansmom318

          The free picture mousepad was a coupon that printed out from watching a video on the video values site at Rite Aid's website. You watch the video, then the coupon is available to print. Then you simply upload photos and create your mousepad and choose to have it shipped to the store. On the coupon it says (up to $12.99 value) right now the mousepads are on sale for $9.99 so when the coupon is scanned it takes off $12.99 and you end up saving $3 extra dollars on the rest of what you bought. Hope this makes sense :)

    • NatalieQ

      Be careful with the M&M deal. It looks like to combine the coupon with the sale, the bags will have to be 12.6 oz.. I used my coupon at Kroger a few days ago, and I believe that the 12.6 oz. bags are mostly marked, “10% More Free”, which makes them a little bigger than the normal bags.

    • kadywood

      Could anyone clarify which total the $5/$25 coupon is supposed to come off of? Is it the shelf prices, subtotal, or your total after any B1G1 and coupons used?

      • Susan

        Your subtotal

    • chrissie

      found it…..they said 1.$5 off $25 (use zip 19457, and go to a 50 mile radius)

    • Melissa

      Well, in looking over this list, there is one less store for me to make a run to this week…oh well, more time to plan HT Super Double strategy! Haha

    • I can't find the Huggies coupon on the Adperk site. I have watched the video before, but it expired. Does that mean its gone for good for me???

      • Susan

        It's a mistake–there was no video values coupon for Huggies this month or last…if you scroll down and read, someone even called RA corporate today to tell them of their mistake.

    • Tia1983

      I'm new at this so this might be a dumb question, but for instance by the reach toothbrushes-what does the RP mean?

      • ireneY

        You'll get the hang of it soon! Red Plum from Sunday inserts. SS is Smart Source.

    • ireneY

      Anyone check out how much the Foster Grant or Styles Science sunglasses are?

      • Susan

        They are around $20 but are not ringing up $10 off….manager said that was a mistake in the ad…should have said “$10 off with video values coupon.”

        • Rachel

          There is also a $2 SCR for Foster and Grant and Style Science sunglasses.

          My Rite Aid in Durham, NC had a sign hanging over the sunglasses that said “As Advertised – $10 off” – only Power Vision, Nascar, and a couple other styles were on sale though (as listed in the ad). The Style Science video values coupon only applies to Polar Vision, Eagle Eyes so you can't stack the coupon with the ones on sale.

      • Jennifer

        I bought some today! I'm a hard to fit (small face) and I thought they had a pretty good selection at my store in Hendersonville, NC

    • jane

      I am new to this… Can someone explain to me how the b1g1 M&Ms works to buy 4 and get 3 free?

      • Susan

        You buy 4–the store gives you 2 bags free for their b1g1. There was a coupon in the paper for b2get1, so that coupon lets the manufacturer give you another bag free…therefore you buy 1 and get 3 free.

        • Janel

          does the clerk have to ring it up in a certain order? our rite aid clerks get confused. and would i get even more free if I had two of those coupons?

          • Susan

            No–the computer takes off 2, and then cashier will take off one manually with the coupon at the end of your order.

      • chrissie

        Today is the last day @ Publix on the M&M they have buy 1 get 1 free @ $4 something with your coupon it say buy 2 get 1 free….. so I pretty much paid for 1 and get 2 free that’s a good deal for me because they are high…..

    • Amh

      Had a good night at Rite Aid… ordered a mousepad for my husband for father's day with a picture of my daughter playing soccer and I picked up some batteries:
      1 mousepad: (on sale for 9.99)
      2 8 pk duracell batteries (each with 2 free AAA batteries) 4.99 each
      I paid a total of $2.14

      I used a $5 off $20, a free mousepad coupon, and i had already bought a pack of batteries prior to this trip so i'll be getting back $5 in rebates…so really I made money off this deal!

      • Susan

        Did you order the mousepad in-store and pay for it before it came in? My store told me to pay when I picked it up.

        • Amh

          I ordered it online and had it shipped to my store then paid in-store for it. when i ordered the first mousepad it was only 9.99 and my store took the full 12.99 off from the coupon. i went back on to riteaid.com to order some more and they are now back to full price at 12.99 but they are still free with the coupon. can't beat that deal! especially with father's day coming up :)

    • tsunamimommy

      To Rebecca and Karen, thank you both so much for all your help. The zip is 43666 and the RiteAid coupon is on the last page. Good shopping to all.

    • Heidi

      The In-Ad Coupon 2 for $10 for Loreal Hair color can be used in addition to the Red Plum (zip 29690) $3.00 coupon (which seemingly can be printed 2 times). So you get 2 boxes for about $4.00 (making them apx $2.00 ea) ….. cant beat that for sure!

    • Ling

      I was wondering if anyone has run across a Rite Aid that limits your coupons to 3 per purchase? I live in SC and went to one where the cashier told me that this policy went into effect this month. I had gone to a different RA 2 weeks ago, and they didn't say anything about it. And then to make matters worse, I was 3 cents off the $25 mark and the cashier wouldn't take my $5 off $25 unless I made it up. It was a really frustrating night.

      • Susan

        Never heard of this–I use tons of coupons when I check out.

    • ItsACouponThing

      Anyone have ANY idea how much the Twizzlers are? My daughter likes them, but we rarely buy them.

    • ItsACouponThing

      I need some help, please, trying to figure out how the BOGOF deals work with the $5/$25 coupon. (Never used one before.)
      Do they only count my cost of the four bags, or does the original cost, before the BOGOF deal, still count towards the $25? This will make a huge difference in what we end up picking up. Thanks a billion!

        At drug stores, when the BOGO items are rung up, the first one is full price, the second rings as 0.00. So you need to have enough to go over $25 not counting every other item that is BOGO.
