Dove @ Rite Aid Makes Me Happy, Happy, Happy

Dove Shampoo/Conditioner on sale for 2/$7. Now, you know if you have been reading my blog, that I would NEVER again pay this much for shampoo or conditioner, even if I love the product, as I do with the Dove line. But, throw in a $5 RR when you spend $15 in Dove products and a Buy One, Get One Free coupon from 10/2/11 RP insert and you have my attention. Completely.

Here's the Math:
Buy (6) at 2/$7= $21.00
Less (3) $3.50= $10.50
Earn (1) $5.00RR= $5.50 for 6 or .92¢ each.

I also took advantage of the Ricola sale 2/$3 and earn $1 RR when you buy 2, which was like paying $1.00 each. But, I also had a Buy One, Get One Free coupon from the same insert. The Math looks like this: Buy (2) at 2/$3= $3.00. Less (1) B1G1 coupon ($1.50)= 2/$1.50. Earn $1 RR. This made them only .25¢ each. I was able to pick up these two bags and have a "rain check" for 6 more bags.

Today, I have had an epiphany regarding the Dove deal. I love Dove shampoos/conditioners and I want to pick up more of them, but I have already used my stash of coupons. So, I turned to Dede.  I ordered (9) B1G1 Dove at a cost of .12¢ each. This is why it made sense for me to do so. The math:

Transaction #1
Buy (6) at 2/$7= $21.00
Less (3) $3.50= $10.50
less $5RR= $5.50 for 6
Earn $5RR= .50¢ for 6 or .09¢ each.

Transaction #2 and #3 (Use a friend's card and repeat twice)

Total Purchased: 9 bottles of Dove shampoo & conditioners
Total Retail Value: $63.00
Total Spent Out of Pocket: $16.50 with a $5 RR towards next week's purchases.
Total Net Transaction: $1.50/18 bottles

I'll let you know how it goes!
