Deodorant Money Maker
Run, don't walk, to your nearest Rite-Aid. Or two because the first store I went to was sold out. But lucky for me they are on the same road so it's not a big deal to try a few.
I only use two brands of deodorant. I have super sensitive skin and that is not an area you want to be itchy. One of those chosen brands is Dove, regularly priced at $3.49/each. Which just so happens to be on sale at Rite-Aid this week. Selling for 2/$4. PLUS you then earn $2+UpRR when you buy two. And I had coupons from the newspaper a few weeks back.
So I bought FOUR things of my favorite deodorant at 2/$4. Then I used my four $2/1 coupons. Bringing my total to zero plus tax, $0.63. That's my total for FOUR deodorants.
But it gets better! Because for every two your purchase, you earn $2+UpRR (basically it's like funny money that is only good in Rite-Aid) to use on anything my heart desires (outside of prescriptions) in the next few weeks.
So instead of paying $15.07 (regular price plus 8% tax), I paid out of pocket $0.63 and then earned $4+UpRR. It's like being paid $0.84 for each deodorant I took home!
Making money off of products I use daily is enough to convince anyone that there is no shame in being a coupon-aholic! LOVE it!
