CVS & Rite Aid Shopping Trips 8/25/13

082513 CVS & Rite Aid Shopping – August 25. 2013

I had +UP Rewards (Rite Aid) expiring today and ExtraBucks (CVS) expiring on Wednesday, so I had to make a run to the store today!  My goal was to replace the +UPs and EBs that I already had, so after making the coupon lists this morning, I checked the ads, gathered my coupons, and went shopping.

I try to always buy toilet paper and paper towels when they’re part of the Buy $30, Get $10 EBs deal – I wish I had more coupons for Scott toilet paper because that’s the kind I like to buy, but I’m not going to stress about toilet paper!

Rite Aid has a deal on gift cards right now – if you buy a $25 gift card for JC Penney or Bed, Bath & Beyond, you get a $6 +UP Reward.  I already planned on shopping at Penney’s this week, so I got the cards just for the +UPs.  Take advantage of gift card deals like this if you can (Vons has a 4x Gas Rewards Points promotion on now – definitely check that out)!
