My 1st transaction went perfectly; I purchased the four items above using the (2) B1G1 coupons. The total came to $9.90 and a $5 RR printed, creating a net transaction of $4.50.
My 2nd transaction should have been 2 deodorants and 2 shampoos. I used (4) $1/1 coupons and the $5 RR, which brought my total to $9.90, again. But, no RR printed. So, I returned the items. $9.90 is a good price for 4 AXE products, but not a good as $4.90 for 4 items. I wanted the latter.
Thinking, that it might have been an issue of being a limit on the RRs (even though it wasn't listed in the flyer) I used my Mother's Wellness Card to repurchase the same items, but again, no $5 RR printed. Now, I was disappointed because it should have. I emailed Rite Aid with the problem and hope that it is remedied before the sale ends. I really did want to purchase the items and my coupons expire on April 2.
I will keep y'all posted. ♥
Update: I braved the snow (Mr. Weather, in case you did not get the memo... it IS April... and, even in Maine, 6-8 inches of fresh, wet snow is not appreciated or needed.) to go to my local Belfast Rite Aid to attempt to purchase the items I could not get last time I tried this.
I borrowed my Grandmother's and my Uncle's wellness cards, gathered the coupons I planned on using, and hoped the right scents would be in stock and that all the elements would work together.
I purchased 3 AXE Body washes (chocolate scent, and citrus scrub, and 1 AXE Detailer. I used 2 Buy One, Get One coupons. The sale was still 2/$9 with a $5 RR wyb $15. My total came to $9.90 and I earned $5. RR. Net Transaction= $4.. So far, so good.
Sean made the next transaction. (Another sale caught my eye and I went to do some calculating.)
He bought 2 AXE Shampoos and 2 AXE Body Sprays in chocolate scent. He used four (4) $1/1 coupons. The total came to $14.50 with a $5 RR= net transaction $9.50. Total Net transaction $14 and I earned $10 RR to use at a later date.
I did not attempt to use the $5 RR that printed off my order immediately, which would have dropped Sean's total to $4.50 and earned another $5 RR. I have not heard back from corporate yet, but there have been rumors that Rite Aid is going to change the method of earning RR's to reflect a similiar system to Walgreens. That may be what happened when I attempted this same transaction in Bangor earlier. I don't know. So, I did spend slightly more than I would normally, but AXE for $1.75 each instead of the regular retail of $5.99 is a deal I can live with.
