Tip: Rain Checks

So I mentioned the other day that I was lucky enough to find two of these fantastic J.R. Watkins kits on sale at my Rite Aid.  They are in fact included in the 2/$3 sale this week.  Such an incredible price!

I wanted more though.  To keep on hand for little hostess gifts or surseys (that's southern speak for a little happy treat).

So I went back to my favorite Rite Aid today where I purchased these two earlier in the week.  And asked for a Rain Check.  Here's what you need to note though...

Make sure you are very specific in that you want a Rain Check for the Head to Toe Kit and it's original price is $13.99.  They need to be clear on the RC with all that information as I have experience with stores not believing that price is real.  My other advice, learned the hard way, is to keep this week's sale ad and bring it with you when you go to use the RC.  It's better to have these things handy than to spend 20 minutes fighting with a manager and feeling all deflated.

But don't be afraid to ask for Rain Checks!  If a store is out of a noted sale item, you are fully entitled to use a RC to get it for the same price when back in stock. never know if you might be able to find a great coupon to make that deal even better too!

Thanks for the tip!! I didn't find these products at all when I checked in RA not even the other sizes, let alone the kits. I took your advice and got some RC's from CVS for their vitamin deal. If they get them in before my coupons expire, i'll still get free yay!! Thanks for the tip!!
