Deodorant Money Maker



Run, don't walk, to your nearest Rite-Aid. Or two because the first store I went to was sold out. But lucky for me they are on the same road so it's not a big deal to try a few.

I only use two brands of deodorant. I have super sensitive skin and that is not an area you want to be itchy. One of those chosen brands is Dove, regularly priced at $3.49/each. Which just so happens to be on sale at Rite-Aid this week. Selling for 2/$4. PLUS you then earn $2+UpRR when you buy two. And I had coupons from the newspaper a few weeks back.

So I bought FOUR things of my favorite deodorant at 2/$4. Then I used my four $2/1 coupons. Bringing my total to zero plus tax, $0.63. That's my total for FOUR deodorants.

But it gets better! Because for every two your purchase, you earn $2+UpRR (basically it's like funny money that is only good in Rite-Aid) to use on anything my heart desires (outside of prescriptions) in the next few weeks.

So instead of paying $15.07 (regular price plus 8% tax), I paid out of pocket $0.63 and then earned $4+UpRR. It's like being PAID $0.84 for each deodorant I took home!

Making money off of products I use daily is enough to convince anyone that there is no shame in being a coupon-aholic! LOVE it!

Good morning from Tokyo!

You know, this would have been great when we were actually in the country at Christmastime. Ah well, perhaps something like this will pop up in the summer when we venture back home for a spell.

A lovely day to you!

Warmly,

Elizabeth
