Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

A quick but somewhat disappointing trip to Rite Aid



Since my last trip to Rite Aid, a few deals have come to my attention. So I decided to pick them up yesterday. Unfortunately the store I went to was all out of the Nature Made CoQ10, so I had to get a raincheck. Hopefully I can find it later in the week, but if I can't the coupons I plan to use will hold for a couple more weeks while stores hopefully restock.

"NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MILES!"

 $23.94  Shelf price
-   6.76  Discounts
-   6.00  Coupons
=11.18  Out of pocket cost
- 11.00  +Up Rewards received
=  0.18  (99.2% savings off shelf price)

What I actually paid: $11.18 - $9.00 in previous +Up Rewards + $0.84 sales tax = $3.02 paid out of pocket. Walked away with $11.00 in new +Up Rewards.
