My Rite Aid Shopping Trip Today

3 ThermaCare (Lower Back/Hip)
    $4.19 less $3.99 scp= .20 tax
2 Comtrex Cold Relief
    $5.24 less $4 mir= $1.24
2 Keri Lotion
    $7.34 less $6 mir= $1.34
7 Colgate 360 Toothbrushes
    $3.14 less $1/2 mcp + $2rr= $.67ea
3 Garnier HerbaShine
    $6.29 less $3mcp + $1rr=  $2.29
3 Snickers bars .92 cents
    less .88rr= .04 cents
6 Garnier Shampoo/Conditioner
    2/$5 less (2) $1/1 mcp= $3.25/2

mcp= manufacturer's coupon
scp= store coupon
mir= mail in rebate
rr= register rewards
scr= single check rebate 

I started with $11rr and used them all in several small transactions to maximize the value of rr's and minimize my out of pocket expense. It took 6 transactions to complete my purchases and I spent a total of $34.70 out of pocket. But, I do have $20 in mail in rebates, which I already processed making my net amount $14.70. Not bad, considering the pre-sale, pre-coupon, pre-rebate total was $115.08, a savings of 87%.
Total Retail Value $115.08
Total Out of Pocket $34.70
Less $20 in Mail in Rebates=
     $14.70 Net Transactions
