Rite Aid Shopping Trip: 11/10


What I bought...
8 Herbal Essence Shampoos/Conditioners @ $4.49 each
8 Herbal Essence Stylers (Mouse & Hair Spray)
1 bag of candy @ $1.74
1 24pk of Nestle Water @ $3.99

Coupons that I used...
8 Buy One Get One FREE Herbal Essence Coupons from November PG insert
$5/$25 Rite Aid Coupon

Total Before Sales & Coupons: $83.07
Total After Sales & Coupons: $2.11 including tax!

Note: I wrote that Shampoo/Conditioner was in my "Top 10 Things You Should Never Pay For Again" and here is the proof! At least once per year one of the drug stores will run a BOGO sale while there is a BOGO coupon out for that product! Last year it was the L'Oreal Hydra Vive at CVS that I was able to stock up on for free! There are many other opportunities throughout the year to get shampoo and conditioner for free but only once per year will there be no strings attached (ECB's, RR's, SCR's!)!

I'm a little confused. I've had them give me one free from the store and one free from the coupon when I buy one (b1g2f) but never to get both free.

I used two coupons to get 4 free for our school's food drive. Love donating free stuff!

Kim,

When the drug stores put items on sale for BOGO the first one rings up at regular price and the second one rings up at $0.00. In this case the Shampoo/Conditioner was ringing up at $4.49 and the Stylers were ringing up at $0.00.

When you have a BOGO coupon to go with a BOGO sale you will get both free...it'll look like this!

Shampoo $4.49
Styler $0.00
Total = $4.49
Coupon: - $4.49
New Total: $0.00

At the grocery stores (or most) the items rings up as 1/2 off when they are BOGO.

If you only bought 2 items on sale for BOGO then the only amount that the coupon can take off is the $4.49. It can't take the $0.00 off.

I hope this helps! You can do this at CVS and Walgreens also if you have the stores! If you grocery stores ring items up the same way when they have a BOGO sale you can do it there too!

Let me know if this answer your question!

Julie,
I love doing the same! This time these shampoos and conditioners and stylers are going in Christmas baskets that I give as gifts at Christmas time! I also throw in cleaners, food etc! Everyone loves it and I don't have to worry about it being something that gets thrown in the back of a closet! lol

Thanks for leaving comments!
