on 8.16.2009 at 9:58pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Don’t forget the $5 off $25 coupon or a $2 off any 12 pack of Cokes.

If your store only accepts 1 Coppertone coupon then you will pay $3.45 for everything, still not too bad.  It is perfectly fine for you to use two coupons, you are buying two products but many stores will tell you that it is their policy to only accept $5 in printable coupons per transaction.

    • Jenny,

      Thanks so much for an excellent class in Murfreesboro yesterday. It was very helpful! I came with two of my girlfriends and we are all super excited.
      I did go to WAGS this evening to inquire about the Sunday papers. They leave them for the paper company to come back and get them. Boo! My friend asked at her local Ingles and they told her the same thing. Double BOO!
      You gave us all great ideas and it was just the boost I needed to get me back in the game! Thanks again!

    • beth

      I am having a problem printing (actually seeing the nutra shield coupon) Anyone else running into the same problem?

    • melinda

      i am!!

    • lynn

      Had a great shopping trip today at Rite Aid, the intuition & quattro razors B1G1 free was able to use 4ofthe 4.00 off coupons making the intuition 3.58 for both & quattor 2.58 for both, bought some neutgrogena make up & NYC make up & used a 5.00 of 25.00. Even went to Walmart & bought 2 more All You Mags they have the 4.00 off intuition & quattro since this was such a great buy. Sunday paper only has 2.00 off each. Thanks for all the tips.

      Coppertone Coupon Problem

      I am also having problems Beth. I have tried loading the coupon on a windows machine in both IE and FF with no luck.

    • Bobbie

      I couldn’t get the Coppertone coupons to print either. Think I had already printed them once. Maybe a limit of two.

    • tonya

      my coupon from august all you is for “flamin’ buffalo chicken nuggets”. is this coupon also good for the jerky?

    • Tiffany

      the BOGO coupon for Jack Link’s was in July issue.

      I couldn’t open the Coppertone coupon either and I haven’t printed it on my husband’s laptop yet. Maybe the link is just having problems b/c I’ve printed it twice from my personal PC already.

    • Karsten

      How are you able to use the $5/25 printable and the $5 Nutra Shield coupon like in scenarion 2 if you can’t use more than $5 worth if ip’s?

    • Susan

      has anyone received their $25 gift card? I received my $2 single check rebate, but no gift card yet(from a couple of weeks ago)

    • Monica

      Did everyone’s sale paper include the extra pages of coupons?? Mine didn’t- can I get them in the store? Help! I need that $5 Duracell coupon!!

    • Michelle

      Susan (# 10),

      I was wondering about the Rite Aid gift cards, too. I received my rebate check a week or so ago, but no gift card yet. Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get the gift cards?

    • Wendy

      Monica- I’m not sure about the Duracell coupon myself- I’m wondering if it doesn’t vary by region- my area (SW GA) had an in-ad coupon, but it was for $2 off 8 pack AA/AAA or 4 pack C/D

    • Kim

      Thank you for all you do. We would never be able to save so much if it wasn’t for all your hard work.

    • Melissa

      My Rite-Aid did not have single Mars candy for B1G1, they said it was the “medium” bags of M&Ms that were B1G1 ($3+each). If you look closely at the sales paper you can see the word medium on the bags, so the Free Friday coupons didn’t work. Oh well, maybe it’s just the Hendersonville, NC store and ya’ll can still get the deals.

    • stephanie

      At my Rite-Aid, the 23 and 26 count Pampers Easy-ups were on sale for $2.87 each. I got 4 12 packs of coke, used my $5/25, (4) $2 coke, a $1.50 easy-ups and a $1 any pampers from the paper a couple weeks ago.

      Spent $12 for 2 packs easy-ups and 4 12 pack coke. Not too bad!

    • Erin

      Just a heads up on the Neutrogena $2 rebate…I think it is a “bonus” rebate…you have to purchase the 2 Clean & Clear/Neutrogena skin care products to be able to qualify for the $2 cosmetic rebate. I didn’t know this and bought the cosmetics earlier in the month and entered my receipt, but the rebate has never appeared.

    • Hailey

      Stephanie – what store did you shop at for the Pampers easy-ups?

    • Randy Gibson

      I could see the coupon but when I hit print it dissapeared and a blank page printed. So what I did was took a screenshot of it, cropped it and printed that. It worked fine and they took it.

    • Haley

      Just a heads up: I saw where Lynn (#4) had used the $4 off for Schick Intuition razor and there is also one for the Titanium Razor – these are located in one of the 7/26 Smart Sources… what a great deal Lynn! I was wondering how much the price was, and I can’t wait to get these!

    • mel

      i called coppertone and they said on their end there is not a problem… i told them to recheck it because it dont work,

    • Kristen

      If you call coppertone, they will mail you a coupon. They said that they use the same means to print the coupons to send. They will send 2 if you request it. Their phone# 866-288-3330

    • leigh

      Just curious if anyone has used 2 of the coppertone coupons together yet, I know Jenny said it may or may not work with 2. I wanted to try it tonight.

    • toya

      mel…can you send us the screenshot of what you see..mine comes up with only the expiration date and that’s it.. i need this $5 off coupon :)

    • Brenda

      I am not able to print the Coppertone $5.00 coupon either. The picture does not even come up on the screen after you select to view the coupon.

    • Brenda

      I just called Coppertone’s customer service @ 1-866-288-3330 on the coupons and they are mailing me a coupon tomorrow.

    • JennyM

      What is the best way to explain a BOGO coupon to a cashier when there is a BOGO sale? Some cashiers get it without question and others won’t let me use it. Today I had a cashier actually only let me use my BOGO Jack’s Links at Rite Aid (there are on sale BOGO 6.49) for $3.24…I kindly said the coupon states that I should receive a free item so basically the store is giving me one free and the coupon is allowing the other to be free. I didn’t get them free. :(

      Is there better wording? Thanks

    • Jenn

      Can I use a product for 2 rebates? For example, I purchased pull ups, can they be used for the individual rebate and the KC/JJ rebate?

    • Courtney

      I had a BOGO problem at Rite Aid today also. I had the coupon for the free AXE shampoo. The cashier would not let me use my coupon because she said that one of them already rang up for free. I asked her to call her manager because the one that I am buying should be free, while the other one is what id the BOGO. The manager told me that I could not participate in both together. I could either do the BOGO or I could put one back and use my coupon for the one. Makes no sense to me, isn’t the company reimbursing the store for the computer?

    • Courtney

      oops I meant coupon? :)

    • Tiffany

      I had the same problem with the Jack Link’s BOGO coupon this morning. My cashier also told me that the coupon wouldn’t scan b/c one had already rung up for free. My coupon for Duracell in the paper was also for $2.00. Made for an expensive week at Rite Aid. At least I’m getting $7 out of the $30 I spent back. Snikies.

    • Amanda

      Mt. Washington, KY

      my rite aid had airwick i-motions 50% off (well, sign was up but it didn’t ring up – check your shelf for sign and watch price)

      3 – airwicks at $4.99 (50% off 9.99)
      1 – $6 off airwick i-motion starter kit
      1 – $4 off airwick i-motion starter kit
      1 – $4 off airwick i-motion starter kit

      so i paid $1 for 3 kits! all three of these coupons were together in the same insert and week, can’t remember which one right now though??

    • cyndi

      Our rite aid manager was awesome, he let me use m $4 coupons on the bogo razors and the jack links and a $5 rite aid coupon, i did awesome and oop was only $7.25 for 4 packs of razors, 2 packs of beef jerky, 4 packs of bic pencils and markers! woo hoo! love the bogo sales with super coupons!

    • L

      transfer 2 rx to riteaid and get $50 rite aid gc’s! then shop :)

    • Christina

      Monica and Wendy ( #11 and #13)

      After reading your post, i checked my sunday insert, and i had the $2 coupon too… I decided to pass on the duracell cause it woudln’t have been as good a deal for me. However, when i got to the store, i grabbed one of the fliers in the store and it had the $5 coupon in it! Might be worth checking your local store fliers – maybe they have different ones in store and in the newspaper…

    • Coppertone coupon!

      I had this same problem last week and called Coppertone I got an envelope yesterday with 2 $5.00 Q’s printed for me and a $1.00 Q, also! Hope this helps!

    • Kathleen

      I also had a problem w/ my B1G1 coupons and the cashier told me that it is now their policy to limit internet printable coupons to $5/transactions. The cashier (& Asst. Manager) also said that my $5/$20 Rite Aid coupon had to be used after all other coupons! I’ve been shopping at Rite Aid for awhile and this is the first time that this has happened. Needless to say, I walked out w/ only my free Bic Pencils. Has Rite Aid’s coupon policy changed or are they just now deciding to enforce it? If this is part of new policy, I don’t know when I’ll be back. It seems like the good deals will be few and far between.

    • Teresa

      The “$2 off any 12 pack of Cokes” link above is not working for me. Do you have to use a particular zip code?

    • Michelle

      FYI: The Coppertone coupon printed for me this morning. Maybe they fixed the problem. :)

    • Jean

      Yes, the coupon is back up this morning, but if you already printed it like I did you won’t have any luck. It is limited to 2 prints per computer now.

    • Stacy

      I bought the Pert for Men today, and there was a “Try Me Free” sticker on the bottle. I paid $3.99, used a $1.50 off coupon, and will get a $2 rebate making the total price $.50. I’m going to submit the Try Me Free coupon to get $3.99 back, which gives me a $3.49 profit!

    • Ashley

      If you are looking for a DVD player (we needed one for our afterschool program), Rite Aid has one now for 29.99 (reg 49.99) with a $10 SCR! So if you use a $5/$25 coupon…you can get it for $15 (not too bad)! :)

    • Stacy

      I agree with Melissa (#15). The B1G1 M&Ms are the larger bags which do not qualify for the free chocolate Friday coupons.

    • SCYankee

      Went today and they let me use (2) $5 coupons for the nutrashield B1G1.

    • Becky

      What zip code are you using to get the $2 off a 12 pack? Are they out?

    • Kayla

      Do you get a $5 off $25 for every 20 points you get, or can you only get one coupon?

    • Rena

      I bought 1 mens schick intuition razor @ 10.99 B1G1
      2 refills @ 10.99 B1G1
      1 ladies schick @ 8.99 B1G1
      2 jerky B1G1 I Got 1 chicken 1 beef
      2 bic 5 pack machanical pencils 2 for $3
      2 2 pack bic markers @ 2.49 B1G1
      I used $5 off wyb $25.00
      4 $4.00 off the razors and refills
      1 free flamin chicken jerky coupon
      2 $1.00 wyb2 bic
      My total was 6 something and I get $1.00 rebate! Pretty good deal.
      I also wanted to get the B1G1 free reading glasses prices start at 9.99 I guess I’ll go back.

      Also I can’t find the 2 off any 12 pack coke. Does anyone know what zip code I need to use? Thanks

    • Rena

      response to Tiffany post # 31 when I bought my beef jerky I just explained that yes they are on sale for BUY one get one free and I am actually buying one and my coupon is for a free one so my cashier just put in the price of the jerky and I got both free! I am sorry this happened to you maybe next time you’ll have better luck.

    • Damien Barber

      I saw a decent deal with the single check rebates (depending on the original price of the product as I am not sure yet how much the product costs).

      Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry sheets
      – $2 SCR
      – $1 Coupon (printable)

      If they cost $6.99 (which is the high end of the suggested retail price), then you could get it for $3.99 after rebate. Like I said, I really do not know the price of this product, so if it costs more than the high end of the suggested retail price then perhaps this is not that great of a deal. I have never used this product but the fact that it is laundry detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheet in one sounds pretty awesome to me (especially since I have a washer-dryer in one which has basically stopped me from using dryer sheets).

      I was actually hoping you would have had this item priced already on here, so I could figure out how good of a deal this is… lol. However, perhaps I could be of some help to someone else out there who would like to try this product.

      • Jenny


        I actually left it off the list because they have it “on sale” this week for $8.99!! I didn’t want to encourage anyone to buy it at that price :(

    • Amanda

      I was able to use two nutrashield qs today. The cashier said I don’t think you can do that since one is free. To which I politely stated if it won’t scan I will take it back. Of course it scanned. I made three dollars at rite aid today. Thx Jenny

    • sarah d

      Ditto on the goofy Rite Aid policy of not allowing customers to use a “Get one free” coupon when the item is a BOGO at the store – silly them since they lost another sale from me today – and maybe in the future as well since they seem to be treating their customers as though we are stealing from them or trying to pull a fast one. Just venting!!!!

    • Carla

      I used my ‘free axe’ coupon at rite aid this week, the lady at first tried to tell me I couldn’t but manager overrode..

    • Lori

      RiteAid $25 Gift Cards-
      Couple people ask about the gift cards, they seem to come a lil slower than the checks. But normally they follow by a couple weeks.

    • Sandra

      Rite Aid corporate says you SHOULD be able to use FREE coupons when stuff is on sale BOGO… Didn’t we have some wording posted somewhere that someone had received in email from corporate? It stated that also.

    • Bobbie

      Sandra, I have an email from Rite Aid and another lady had the same one posted here. On the BOGO it says “When items are featured on a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the item being purchased. The register will automatically calculate any sales tax due on a zero sales transaction based upon your state and local laws.”

    • Kazzandra

      Any particular zip code for the cokes?

    • Deb

      Check your emails… (if you are signed up on rite aide’s website) I got an email this morning that allowed me to print a 20% coupon for Rite aide to be used Fri-Sun this weekend.

      Happy Shopping!!

    • Janet

      I already printed my 20% off! What a great deal!!!!

    • SDavis

      Let us know how your 20% coupons work out. I tried to use one last week but everything I was buying was on sale. The cashier said something about if it was less than 20% off, the register would compute the difference. We scanned it anyway b/c I wasn’t planning on going back. The emailed me another this week, but I think everything on my list is on sale! I mis-read it and thought it was 20% off your total bill…I’m sure you ladies will come up with some good uses for yours! Please share!

    • Kazzandra

      I had an AWFUL experience at my local Rite-Aid, and I suspect that this particular store is trying not give out receipts so that people won’t notice that their shelf prices aren’t matching up with what is actually charged and so you won’t get your single check rebates. I did get my receipt, but I did not take them to task over the 2 for 3$ Bic pencils ringing up at 2.49 a piece. I won’t be shopping there again.
