Rite Aid Challenge

So, I had my first transaction in the Rite Aid Challenge.

1 package Huggies diapers: $8.99 - $2 coupon = $6.99
1 Wartner Wart Remover: $9.99
1 Ben Gay Patch: $6.99 - $2 coupon = $4.99
subtract a $5 off $25 Rite Aid Coupon plus $1.75 tax = $18.72

I will receive back:
$3 rebate for Huggies diapers
$10 rebate for Wart Remover
$6 rebate for Ben Gay
Total back: $19.00

So I've gained $0.28 so far on my free $25 Gift Card!

The Rite Aid Challenge

So, I needed to refill a prescription of Abe's. We'd filled it several months ago at CVS initially. This past week in the paper they had coupons to receive a $25 Gift Card to Rite Aid if you transferred a prescription there. I figured I'd go ahead and transfer it, to get the Gift Card. So, I went to Rite Aid, paid $0.72 for the prescription and got my $25 G.C. Now, here is my challenge. I'm going to see how much I can actually get with that $25 without ever paying out of pocket. Rite Aid does a monthly rebate program and combining that with coupons, I'll see what I can do. I'm going to track it for a year. Here's to free stuff from Rite Aid!
