    • bhumi

      Jenny u work really hard for all of us. I just wasn’t sleepy at this hour and I checked ur website for updates.

      Good work Jenny

    • Tina

      I am getting “no coupon” for the GE light bulb link. Too bad, I could really use those…

    • Erin

      I notice you didn’t say anything about the Kotex 2 for $9, get $2 SCR back. Do you think there will be a better deal later? I have my $1 off q’s ready!

    • Brandy

      There is also a $2 off coupon for the Scotch Pop Up Handband Tape Dispenser in the 5/31 RP circular.

    • RL

      Bhumi, I was thinking exactly the same thing…

      Jenny, if this is a challenge to you –you have nailed it! Hugs!

    • tonya

      hey coupon friends,

      try this link for the light bulb coupons. you should be able to print two by hitting the backspace button 2 or 3 times after your first coupon prints.


    • Regina

      Too Bad! None of the Home Solutions (Airwick & Colgate) coupons will print for me because I’m running IE 8 & Foxfire 3.5.2… I’m disappointed!

      FYI they say –

      We’re unable to support coupon printing on your system at this time. The Coupon Print Activator is supported on Windows Operating Systems 2000, ME, XP and Vista when used with Internet Explorer 6.x and 7.x, or Firefox 2.0 and 3.0. Coupon printing is not supported under Linux, Unix or Web TV platforms. Coupon printing is not yet supported under Windows Operating Systems using Internet Explorer 8.x, Firefox 3.5 or Safari 4 or Google Chrome.

    • Beth

      On the onth long single rebates, do all of the items have to be purchased at once or can it be done in multiple transactions?

    • Regina

      Beth – they can be purchased in multiple transactions – you just have to register all your receipts in order to get your rebate at the end of the month. :)

    • Stephanie

      FYI: Rite Aid does not accept coupons printed off the internet unless it has their logo on it. It is stated in their coupon policy and I have been turned down before.

    • Patricia

      I went to Rite Aid after worship and bought 2 Zyrtec, 2 Shout (30 oz because they had the 30 oz bottles at 20 oz price) and the scotch tape. In the end it will be all be FREE! Thanks Jenny!

    • Jennifer

      JENNY, I went to RiteAid and the tabs for 3 for $15 on the Profoot, etc… were not up. I checked my RiteAid flyers from both a SC and a GA paper and neither of them had that deal listed. Could you please tell me where you found it? Thanks!

    • Stephanie

      Hey Jenny – Thanks for all you do for us! We have been saving a ton of money and having fun doing it. The Zyrtec coupon in the RiteAid flyer says that it is a manufacturers coupon – will they still take it with the one from the SS insert?

      • Jenny


        I haven’t gotten home to get my paper but most Rite Aid coupons say “Manufacturer Coupon” on them but they aren’t really. If the bar code starts with a RA or is very long compared to a normal bar code then it is really a store coupon. I’ll check when I get home, but I’m pretty sure that it is really a store coupon.

    • Debbie

      You may want to ask at your Rite Aid before shopping if they take internet Q’s. The 2 Rite Aid’s near me do not! Just as FYI.

    • Jennifer

      Where are you, Debbie? What state?

    • Jennifer

      I haven’t had any problems with internet Qs in SC

    • Tina

      thanks for the lightbulb link Tonya!!!

    • Shannon

      The Colgate coupon starts with an RC and is really long. Does this mean you can stack it with a “real” manufacturer coupon?

      Also, does anyone know if the Rite Aid on Piedmont or Peachtree Rd. in Atlanta take internet coupons (without the Rite Aid logo)? Thanks!!

    • bhumi

      If u buy 3 of NYC products u can qualify for the glam bag. I hope to hit riteaid tomorrow I hope theybstill have it left

    • CS

      Where does the scrubbing bubbles coupon come from?

    • This is a great list.

      To sweeten these deals you can get a 10% off coupon at coupons.com
      Just use 95765 for your zip code.

    • Debbie

      You can get these free:
      Airwick I-Motions or Freshmatic 50% off
      -$4 off Ari Wick Freshmatic printable

      because they are $9.99, so 1/2 off equals $4.99,
      buy 5 to get $24.94 (buy cheap filler item if needed)
      use a $5 off of $25.00 then use 5 $4.00 coupons

      (my house smells good now!)

    • http://www.myhealthyseasons.com also has a 10.00 rebate for Zyrtec you can use too!

    • Eve

      This was my first week doing Rite Aid and I’m a little discouraged. They were out of multiple items and apparently they had already started displaying tags for sales this week. I purchased the scotch tape pop up dispenser b/c the SCR sign was posted but the sale didn’t start until this week. Am I just out that money?

    • Jennifer

      I just visited Rite Aid and there are several $3 coupons on the box which makes it free if you also use the $3 in ad coupon for Ecotrin Aspirin. Also if you check out in the back where you get prescriptions filled they will sometimes give you an extra 10% off your total bill.

    • Tiffany

      The Clear Eyes .5 oz bottle is on sale for $0.99 and there was a coupon for $1.00 off in the Tallahassee Democrat this past weekend for $1.00 off 1. Made it free plus a penny overage.

    • Kim

      Question that I am hoping you guys can answer. I messed up my RiteAid SCR. I purchased 2 contact lens solutions for 9.99 and one zantac for 4.99 and a small filler. I used my 10% off, my 5 dollars off and had additional coupons for each item. I saved around 14 bucks and was set to make 24 in SRC. Well, I submitted my receipts and found that the contact solution was limit one so I am going to lose out on my 9.99 SRC. My question is..can I return the contact solution? I don’t know how they would handle the return since I used multiple coupons.

      • Jenny


        You can return the solution and you should get the full amount back. Or at least the amount before any manufacturer coupons (they might reduce it the amount you saved from a store coupon).

    • Jen


      I bought the Zyrtec using the plan of 2 purchases.
      Price: $29.99
      Internet: $5.00 off $25.00 Rite Aid
      Sunday paper coupon : -$4.00
      Rite Aid ad coupon : -$3.00
      AND the Zyrtec had a PEELIE!! : -$2.00
      So the total was 15.99 each!!!
      (x2) made 90 Zyrtec $31.98. With both rebates, I will get back $35.00 so I actually made money on something that I take every single day!! I also bought the pop up tape (profit of $2.00) so I made a total of $5.02 when the two bottles Zyrtec at regular price would have been $60.00!!

    • Kim

      Thanks Jenny!

    • Tiffany

      I forgot to mention the Rite Aid Multi-purpose Solution 12 oz is on sale for $1.99, when you sign up for their on-line coupons, you will see a coupon for $1.00 off 1, which makes it $0.99/bottle.

    • Bobbie

      Post @ 12 Jennifer, my Rite Aid store in Birmingham did not have the pro foot products 3/15. It was not in my flyer either??

    • There is also a $5 money maker available on Nexxus shampoo. Check http://thecouponhigh.blogspot.com/2009/08/my-coupon-high-trip-to-rite-aid.html for the details.

    • Lane

      RE: Comment #22

      I’m not able to get the 10% off coupon for Rite Aid, even with the 95765 zip code. Thanks for the tip though.

    • Debbie,

      Thanks a million, got 5 Air Wicks and only paid tax. When I first tried it she told me it was $11 and change. I had her clear it out and give me the receipt and 2 of my manufacturer coupons had not scanned. That’s why I break up my transactions. Always watch out for that girls, that would have cost me $8.


    • Debbie

      Amber –

      You are welcome! Free is fun!

    • Jennifer

      Can you use the 10% off coupon and a $5/25 coupon on the same transaction? They both say not to use with other offers.

    • Jen (#30) The peelie was a manufacturer coupon. You can only use one manufacturer coupon per item. I am rally surprised they allowed you to use both the $4 and $2 coupon. They should not have.
      Rite Aid’s policy is that you can stack a mq with a RA q, but you can never use two mq’s together (anywhere).

    • Gail

      This might be old news to some of you but I did not know about it. Did yiou know you can go to the Rite Aid site and watch vidos for coupons? I got 20 points for watching and printed out my coupons, including a $5 off of $20. These are Rite Aid name brand coupons that expire 10/31/09. You do have to register to watch.


    • Sarah

      Holly (#24)
      What a great scenario! Thanks for the moneymaker!

    • Amy

      Has anyone thought about this one?

      (1)Bic Soliel single razor or 4 pack refill $5.99
      -$2 SCR
      -$3 off any Bic Soliel Refillable Razor handle or cartridge refills 4-pack or 8-pack (8/9 SS)(makes it 0.99 each)

    • Shelly

      I am a newbie to this couponing system. I have LOVED this website. Thank You so much!!!!
      I wanted to share my story at Rite Aid. I saved 13 dollars from the coupons and helpful hints you had on this site. I walked out paying $9 for ten items. Just knowing that alone, I feel like it is worth it. But the manager at my store in Bartlett, TN was not nice at all. I complained on him through customer service. I also asked what coupons they(Rite Aid) except and he said they will accept any coupons weather it is internet or not if it is less than $5. They will accept any of their own.

    • Bobbie

      Gail, Just found this site and printed my coupons. Got kinda tired watching vidos. LOL But really good site for coupons from Rite Aid

    • Bobbie

      Could not print my GE light bulbs. Retried and then said I had already printed them.

    • Susan

      Zyrtec Coupon:

      Save $3.00 on any Zyrtec Product (excludes trail size). Just incase you need another or did not get one in the paper. I printed 2, it is PDF, so you might can print more.


    • Erin

      I got an email for a 20% off any Rite Aid purchase this Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Anyone else?

    • Laura

      I got the same 20% off coupon through email, but when I tried to print it, it says “loading” over the barcode and then gives me an error message. Anyone else have the same problem?

    • Erin


      I had that trouble too. The first time I printed it said “void” over the barcode. I went back to the email, clicked again, and this time let the entire page load (let the blue bar finish the web address at the top) before I clicked the print button and it worked perfectly that time. It had my name in red at the top of the coupon.

      I did have one small issue with it though. I used it for the $10 SCR wyb $20 Nexxus. The price to the right of my shampoo on the receipt reads $4.29 (instead of $5.99) but below the name of the shampoo, it reads “original price $5.99.” Not sure if this will “de- qualify” me from the SCRs or not. I entered my receipt and I guess we’ll see!

      If I don’t get the SCR I’ll just return the shampoo, since I was only buying it to donate to our local food bank/ charity (who wouldn’t when it ends up being free?!)

    • Gail

      I ask the cashier at Rite Aid if they would take the $2 off mfc Rite Aid coupon I printed from the internet with the in store coupon for the coke. The cashier said as long as it did not go over the amount that was owed. So I got 2, 12 pks, coke for a total of $3.00 today. Not to bad!

    • Carol Velasco

      I bought the 2 zyrtec in 2 transactions, went to rite aid.com. Will I automatically get the 25 scr and the 10 gift card when I enter my receipts? The 10 dollar fine print says 50 after coupons and tax. Has anyone actually gotten the scr and 10 dollar back yet? Thanks

    • I got an email for the $10.00 gift card automatically after I entered the two receipts but was told that the $25.00 rebates were not valid. I also had the $2.49 tape rebate on the receipt and that was not honored. I emailed them and was told to fax the receipts for review. Has anyone else had to do this? Thanks.

    • In the #53 comment I was talking about the 2 zyrtec.

    • Jen

      Brandy (#40)
      Just saw your comment. When the cashier peeled off the $2.00 Q I said, “I have a $4.00 one so I’d rater used that one”. He said, “Well we will see if the computer will take both”. And – it did. He didn’t have to manually enter anything. I was surprised but didn’t argue! (The cashier was the manager) I guess I just got lucky.
