Reaping Your Harvest

Rite-Aid: Kay’s Reapings (Olay & Nexxus Deal) 9-28

Posted on: 09/28/2010

Initially, I planned to work these deals as two (2) separate transactions, but at the last minute, and me thinking on the fact that I still needed to run to the AT&T store to return the horrible phone I recently received, I went with tossing it all together.

Now it definitely pushed me way pass where I normally go for paying OOP but I was GREATLY surprised with the UP+ rewards which printed at the end.

Here’s what we reaped:

(1) Crest ProHealth Sensitive, $2.99
-used (1) $1/1 Crest Toothpaste, 9/26 P&G
-used (1) $1/1 Crest Toothpaste, Rite-Aid Clip Book
made it $0.99
received: $2 UP

(1) Crest ProHealth Mouthwash, $4.99
-used (1) $2/1 Crest ProHealth Wash, 9/26 P&G
made it $2.99
….was suppose to have received: $3 UP (When I purchased the 6 Oral B Toothbrushes on yesterday, I believe my limit was reached on this particular deal…my limit was 5)

(2) Oral B Toothbrushes, $2.99
-used (1) BOGO Oral B Toothbrush, 9/26 P&G
-used (1) $0.75/1 Oral B Toothbrush, 8/29 P&G
-used (1) $1/1 Oral B Toothbrush, Rite Aid Clip Booklet
made them $1.24 for (2)

(2) Olay Moisturizers, (1st) $8.99, (2nd) $4.50 at 50% off
-used (2) $1/1 Olay Moisturizers,
-used (1) $2/1 Olay Skin Care Products, Rite-Aid Clip Booklet
-used (1) $1/$10 Skin Care Product, Wellness Member E-mail Q
made them

(1) Nexxus Shampoo, $15.99
(1) Nexxus Conditioner, $9.99 ($5.00 at 50% off)
-used (1) $6/2 Nexxus Hair Care, Rite-Aid Video Value
-used (1) $1/$10 Hair Care Products, Wellness Member E-mail Q
-used (1) $2/1 Nexxus Hair Care Product, Rite-Aid Clip Booklet
made them

(1) Olay Eye Roller, $21.99
-used (1) FREE wyb (2) Olay Moisturizer (valid up to $19.99)
made it $2

-used (1) $5/$25 Rite-Aid Purchase
-used (1) $10 UP+ Reward

Total OOP: $16.XX (believe the receipt is in the ride)
Received: (1) $7 UP (Nexxus wyb $20 worth), (2) $2 UP (Oral/Crest), (2) $10 UP (P&G Products wyb $30 worth)

…that’s a total of $31 UP+ rewards back…talk about being SURPRISED!

I already knew that all of them were coming except for the additional $10 UP for the P&G products. The systems are now tracking your transactions. Meaning, prior to this newest feature, you would have been required to purchase ALL of participating products in one (1) transaction to reap your UP+ rewards. Now, if you wanted to, you can break down the “deals”, spreading out the qualifying items.

Now here’s what I believe happened. Each time I did a transaction with the P&G products, I was ALWAYS over $30, whether it was the Tide scenario, Old Spice Spray/Deodorant, or the Gillette products. Since the system is tracking transactions, instead of losing the amount over the $30, it accumulates and when you hit that $30 mark again, it produces another $10 UP reward.

In the above scenario, I was working on the Olay P&G products to produce the UPs, not knowing that my “leftovers” were still sitting in the wing. When I hit the $30 mark with the Olay, the remainder of that went along with what was left from the other transactions and produced a second $10 UP on a single transaction.

I’ve NEVER heard of this happening to anyone else, so not sure if it will carry over or not, but wanted to share my experience. I’m sure I could have further reduced my OOP by breaking the transaction up, but I think it was pretty good as it was at $77 before coupons.

…before the 30th I’ll go back to work another transaction, or two (2) for the Tide Liquid Detergent…awesome DEAL!

How are the rest of you doing this week? I know Ms. Dee is out there reaping her harvest. Let me know if you all are understanding working the deals at Rite-Aid or not…maybe we can slow it down a couple of days and do a Q&A with a mock scenario on the blog.
