postheadericon Smart Mom's Rite Aid Challenge

Bookmark and Share

 I have always been a loyal CVSer, only recently have I figured out that Rite Aid has an even better program to help you save money.

Rite Aid has four ways to help us keep more of our hard earned cash.
  1. Wellness+
  2. +Up Rewards
  3. SCR (Single Check Rebates)
  4. Rite Aid Video Values
Not only can you save money and get products for free, but you can actually MAKE money just from shopping.  I didn't post my money makers on Smart Mom this week because I was just trying them out, experimenting and making sure they really were making me money.

What I did:
  • Nueutrogena Clinical Free With Mail in Rebate.  It cost me $39.99 Out of Pocket (OOP) I used a $5 printable coupon for Nutrogena, and $5 off a purchase of $25 or more from Rite Aid.  I sent in my rebate form to Neutrogena for reimbursement up to $40.  I only spent $29.99 and I get a check from Neutrogena for $39.99.  That's a $10 money maker and I get to try the product for FREE!  
  • Zegerid OTC, I don't suffer from heartburn but there was once again a mail in rebate.  On sale for $10 I used a $3 on 1 in ad coupon, and a $3 on 1 Rite Aid July Video Values coupon, along with a $3 on 1 Zegerid OTC manufacturer coupon.  I received the product for free and then I received a $7 +Up reward.  Then I used the mail in rebate which will be a check for me for $10.  This turned the Zegerid OTC into a $17 money maker.  
So to sum it up after doing only two deals (there were many more available but it was a little over whelming for me to get everything together I'm a Rite Aid newbie) I made $27!  That is not bad.  Who is going to just give me $27?   I actually could have done better, a lot better had I added an extra money maker  or two and added the $5 off $25 Rite Aid Coupon I had for the Zegerid but I spaced out on that one until I was in the car and had completed the trip.  It was really hot and both of my babies were spent.  Oh well, I will be better next time.

Smart Mom's Rite Aid Challenge is going to be to do as many deals as I can each week that are money makers and see how much I make at the end of the week, then end of the month, and finally the end of the year.

HERE is a great resource to learn about Rite Aid programs.  Check it out and then join me on my Rite Aid Challenge!

postheadericon Pampers Gifts To Grow - 10 Points

Bookmark and Share

There is a new Pampers Gifts to Grow code for 10 more points it is GTGGETREADYSOON.  If you don't already collect the codes it's free to join and there are some great rewards you can earn.

In my opinion Pampers has really begun to do a better job with what they offer.  In the beginning, there were not too many things I would be interested in but now they have added Diego and Dora soft potty seats, more magazine subscriptions and an AMC Gold Ticket Experience with free popcorn.  There are many more rewards available so if you haven't checked them for awhile now is a great time.

postheadericon CVS Surveys = Extra Care Bucks

I don't know about you, but I'm a CVS junkie.  I love that place.  They have all of my favorite things, hair care, make up, Red Bull, and the best chocolate.  What I love the most is finding all the deals they are always offering and Extra Care Bucks.  My last trip I spent $7 and had $55 worth of stuff.  Plus, I left with a couple of ECB's in my bag.  If you are not familiar with the CVS program you can check out my CVS 101 post.

CVS has something called an Advisory Panel.  If you join the panel, a few times a year they will send you a survey and upon completion you will receive extra care bucks.  Even if you don't qualify for the survey you will receive some type of compensation.  I notice it's usually $2 in extra care bucks.  I just completed a 15 minute survey for them and received $10 ECB's. 

I also enjoy the fact that my opinion helps better the store.  The program is completely free.  If you would like to become a CVS Advisor please click HERE.
