Rite Aid Black Friday On Saturday
So I do not shop on Black Friday. Honestly, I think it's crazy. And not in a good way. But on Saturday afternoon, I happened to notice that my $18 in Rite Aid +up Rewards were expiring so I could not use them on Sunday. Ahhh! I got my act together and headed over to Rite Aid ASAP.
Of course they were sold out of most of the best deals. Really though I just wanted to use my +up Rewards, even if I couldn't roll them. That's just a ton of free money to let go to waste.
So this shop was very random. The Hormel meals are for my dad who likes them for lunch sometimes. I personally think they smell gross and are over-priced. But these four were on clearance for $1.64 (regularly $3.29) and again, I needed to use up my +up Rewards. Oh and not pictured was a $2 eyeglasses string thing that I forgot to take out of the bag- also for dad. The Fuze drink is sort of random too. I had a RA coupon for $0.75/1 as well as a manufacturer coupon (made by CVS- but said manu) for $0.75/1 so the drink was just $0.19. But when you factor in my 10% automatic discount, I actually made $0.07!! Perfect timing as I was thirsty.
So after coupons and $18 in +up Rewards, I paid just $1.07 (before taxes) for $36.51 worth of product. And earned $8.99 in +up Rewards. Not bad for having no plan in place and the store being sold out of nearly every deal I hoped to take advantage of. Not too shabby at all!
