    You can use 2 $4/2 Nivea body care coupons and turn it into a $15.95 moneymaker. Sweet!

    • Kelly

      where are the $4/2 coupons?

        • Anonymous

          I also switched the Act II popcorn for 2 of the school supplies at .29 each to bring the total to 25.01 and with two 4.00/2 Nivea coupons it brings the grand total to : 3.02!!!!

        • Dana

          I used this coupon at Target yesterday and it rang it up as $2.99 off instead of $4 off. I think it was ringing it as a BOGO instead.

  2. jennkhart

    I bought two Reach toothbrushs using the BOGO coupon plus the $1 off MQ and I got TWO $1 UP rewards printed on my receipt, not one like the ad says!

  3. Anonymous

    can someone explain this up reward stuff Im confused. Is this their version og Wgs RR? cuz I m sick of those expiring so quick ya know.

    • toph

      Expires in two weeks just like Register Rewards..

        no, thank you. glad to know.

    • susanna

      Would I use both the 1 $ off coupons and the 4 $ off coupons or just the 4 $ off?

      • amanda

        buy 4 of the nivea and just use (2) of the $4/2 printables. If you follow the scenario exactly than your total out of pocket should be just a little over $2 plus tax!

    • mj

      great scenario Amanda! thanks so much for master-minding this!

      • amanda

        Thanks. No prob! I love coming up with Money Making scenarios. It was so nice of Collin to post it since I know she gets a ton of “scenarios” and such.

  5. mcreynolds22

    I noticed this in the fine print of the oral care rebate offer “Rebate based on actual price paid (after any & all coupons are used).” Does that change the deal scenario?

    • amanda

      No it shouldn’t. It usually says that for all of the other like offers and i have always used coupons.

  6. Liz

    If I did the Rembrandt deal in two separate transactions, will I get $2UP rewards each time? (I’m new to Rite Aid and don’t know if it has the same limits on number of times to do a deal like CVS)

    • amanda

      I haven’t heard about the Rembrandt printing more than one but it MAY. Rite Aid will have limits starting this upcoming Sunday. Right now some things will give you more than 1 +UP reward and others won’t although you never know which ones because i think that they are just trying to figure out all of the “bugs” in the system.

      • Liz

        Ok thanks, I think I’ll just add the spinbrush to reach the Oral Care rebate. (that’s what I needed it for – Rembrandt was a better deal b/c $3 off and $2 UP if it spit it back the second time. Already did Reach too so I needed one more to make that Oral Care rebate!)

  7. Jenn

    Thanks for posting – I need to restock my toothpaste supply! This might be a stupid question, but can you use a Rite Aid gift card from a previous rebate to pay for the purchase and submit for the new rebate/gift card?

    • amanda

      It’s not a stupid question…and Yes, you can use a Giftcard and will still qualify!

    • mj

      Yup! I use my RA gift cards all the time, and i haven’t had any problems submitting for rebates/gift cards… They don’t care how you pay for it!

  8. mer

    Just did this. Thanks so much..
    I got 4 $1 Nivea, 1 $3 Colegate, 2 $1 Reach, and 1 $2 Rembrant for a total of $11 in Ups. Total spent was $4.66 Getting back $2.99 for the reach and almost hit the oral care.. My Rembrant was on clearance for $3.99 – use a $3 and a $1 for it to be free but just missed the oral care rebate by .03 cents. Will have to go back and buy another!

    • amanda

      next week the crest will be $2.69 ( i think that was the price) with $2.69 SCR so you can always wait until next week to get that which should also qualify for the rebate.

      • Liz

        Thanks for this tip – I’ll wait for this instead of doing the spinbrush!

        • amanda


  9. mer

    THanks Amanda!

    • amanda

      You’re Welcome!

  10. Tara

    dont be surprised if you dont find any of the mens body wash…..i went to three rite aids today and only found one ๐Ÿ™ its a good week for sales though

    • amanda

      Sorry to hear that Tara. Make sure you get a raincheck because even if you can’t get them this week atleast they will still be free after coupon!

      • Tara

        I am, thank you! I am going to go to a bigger rite aid tomorrow and check there!

    • Kathryn

      Weird, my stores are like stocked up!

    • Shannon Prouty

      I found it in the shaving aisle not the soap aisle.

  11. Sassie

    I’m confused. The oral care rebate on the website states “Rebate based on actual price paid (after any & all coupons are used).” Does that mean your total has to come to that amount after the coupons? Can we still do this idea?

    • amanda

      It usually says this for these types of deals but it SHOULD still work because it always has in the past.

  12. april

    You can substitute the popcorn and buy 2 packs of Rolaids, use the $4/2 Rolaid coupon and make another $2 ๐Ÿ™‚

    • amanda

      What an awesome idea April!

      • april

        Nice blog, I just visited it, and I see we are the same age!

    • Kim

      Where’d you find the rolaid coupon?

      • april

        It was a newspaper coupon, I believe from the first of June.

        • amanda

          June 6th Redplum

          • Teresa

            Don’t think we got it here in Portland, OR.

  13. Anonymous

    it doesnt say in the items list that u can use the nivea body wash on the oral care rebate. Can u??? will it work??

    • amanda

      No the Nivea doesn’t qualify for the Oral Care Rebate. It is just used as a “filler” to get you to the $25 mark that you need in order to use the $5 off of a $25 purchase coupon and also because it is a nice little Money maker.

      • jammie

        ok. thanks.

  14. Sonata

    You can also use the $4 off in-ad Q for Ace cold compresses as a MM. Just buy the 1 count cold compress for $1.29. I bought four today, used 4 coupons and used the overage for the Oral Care rebate.

  15. Carrie

    I am just curious, what is an up reward and how can it be used or applied? I understand the S.C.R. system but the UP reward looks like something I am unaware of.

    • april

      the up reward prints on the end of the receipt, like the cvs extracare bucks.

  16. Kathryn

    Question, how does this Oral Care Rebate work? Just like all other SCR?

    • amanda

      yup !

  17. Wendy

    Can I print more than one video values coupon and use them all?

    • Wendy

      I didn’t say that quite right. What i want to know is if I can print like 5 of the same video value coupon and use them. I used to be able to do it, but last time I tried ( a few weeks ago) the cashier says they are now attatched to my Wellness card. I wondered if that is just limiting me to one per transaction, one per day, or one per month? Can anyone shed some light on this subject?

      • april

        They are only supposed to be used once. I overheard my managers complaining about people trying to slip in multiples last time I was in RA.

      • amanda

        the barcodes are serialized now so you can only use one per card AND one per Video values account.

        • Stacy

          So…even if another family member had their own video values account, I could not use one of their coupons with my wellness card if I had used the same coupon from my video values account already? It’s kind of silly if that’s the case since wellness cards are not limited to 1 per household like CVS extra care cards, so I guess hubby will just have to get his own card.

  18. Liz

    This is so great that I may just give Rite Aid another shot!

  19. Kristi

    A question. With all those UP rewards, can you use more than one in a future transaction? I had gotten a while ago and it said something about only one per transaction. Is that true?

    • amanda

      yes you can use as many as you want until your total is zero!

      • Melissa

        Make sure the up rewards do not eat into your tax. It will beep and then invalidate your coupon for a later time. I have heard if you use your up rewards before any man. coupons then they will go through and the man. coupons can eat into tax.

    • Teresa

      That is why this is even better than Wags RR’s you can use as many as you want! No beeps:)

    • Tara

      Some stores may limit you of one “like” per transaction. some of them are worded this way.hth

  20. Zoe

    If I buy 2 Colgate Toothpaste, will I get 2 $3 +Up rewards or I will only get 1 $3 +Up reward? Thanks.

    • Camara

      You will get 2 $3 Up rewards.

      Today I bought 4 nivea mens body washes and a colgate total=$2.45 with tax (I paid) I got back 7 UP rewards

      I went back: bought 4 nivea mens body wash (2 $4.00 coupons), colgate total ($1.00 coupon), johnsons head to toe baby wash ($4 johnsons website $1 off), 2 BIG head and shoulders shampoos (BOGO coupon), Suave professionals conditioner (no coupon since I only bought 1) used $5 off $25 and I paid $0.99 including tax and used my ups earned in first transaction and got back 9 up rewards.

      My friend wants me to use her coupons and do the same transaction #2. The plus is I get all the UP rewards AGAIN since I’m using my card!!!! LOVELY

      • Anonymous

        what coupons you use for the head and shoulders or you just use your up + with the 5/25 like to do this transaction.

  21. stephanie

    Rembrant coupon is gone!

    • Crystal S

      I was just able to print it. #3/1, exp 8/26.

  22. Lisa

    I rocked this scenario last night. Thanks, Amanda! I did it 2 times and got all my UP rewards. I did just the Colgate again in another scenario and didn’t get the reward, but the manager gave me cash back instead. :There’s no limit posted (yet, I think), so she said she’d just give me cash back. I found a clearance Rembrandt, but it didn’t print my reward. I didn’t say anything b/c I got it free anyway. as another filler, the Maybelline single eye shadows are $3.59, less the $2 VV coupon and $1 tear pad in the store, I only paid 59 cents. I actually paid less than that because my 10% ALL purchase (excluding sale items) kicked in!!! YAY!

    OT- I found some awesome markdowns at my Kroger. Organic Soy formula for $4.12 (big canister), Fliptz for 71 cets, Reese’s and Hershey full size bars, 6 pack only 1.07!! Allso, Always Infinity Pads for 65 cents after $1 off coupon. I am going back ro get some Enfamil formula free after printable coupon so I can donate it.. I โ™ฅ clearance!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. susanna

    Just got back from doing this secenario.If you don’t see the nivea try looking in the shaving cream aisle.Thats where I found mine.I guess because it’s for men.

  24. Melissa R.

    Thanks for the scenerio starter! I’ve been wanting to jump into the RA program (got my wellness card a few weeks ago) but just didn’t know where to start. I swapped out the popcorn for the Softsoap handsoap, since it was also $1 and have a .35/1 q from sundays paper. I figure with tax, it’ll be around $4.50ish. Keeping fingers crossed everything is in stock when I go later!!

    I’m wondering about this –
    $4 off in-ad Q for Ace cold compresses as a MM. Where is that coupon at? I can’t find it in my weekly ad or is it in the booklet you find in front of the store that has the monthly rebate info?

    • Holly

      Rite Aid has a short ad and a long ad, if you got the short ad then your sales are different. Rite Aid is not all that big here in Memphis so we frequently get the short ad (ugh) so that means not as many items on sale, or not as many +Up rewards. I ALWAYS double check my flyer before going because of that. Like last week the Zegrid was not on sale for us and there was no +Up reward on it either. I still did it because I needed it and still had the rebate form to complete so it was no biggie, but it made my deal not be a as much of money maker. Gee darn! I got paid a little less to shop! lol

      • Lisa

        HEY! I’m in Memphis too! I was disappointed about the Zegrid and Ace bandages, but oh, well. Hopefully the 2 Rite Aids that are left here will stay open!! I am loving their new program!

      • Melissa R.

        Thanks for the reply! Yep, we get a very small ad, like 8 pages! darn, that would have been a nice filler/mm item!

        • shannon

          yeah short ad stinks. why, just because a city is bigger, do they get to have better sales? doesnt make sense to me.

  25. Coupon Hound

    There’s another $5 off $25 purchase at Rite Aid coupon on Redplum zip 19140.

  26. Heather

    Quick question – I think this has been asked before but I can’t find the answer. I did the above deal, all worked fine. I would like to do another version of it – will I get the up rewards again for say rembrant, or is it like ECB where there is a limit on the car and it will only print a single one, even if you come back for multiple transactions? I hope that makes sense. Thanks!

    • Christina

      They are still working on that… it’s hit or miss right now. I even asked my store manager and she didn’t know!

    • Heather

      I went back and it worked just fine. So for now, it looks like there isn’t a limit.

  27. shannon

    does anyone have trouble using a b1g1 coupon, and then a $ off coupon for 2 items? it seems like none of the stores around here will let me do it. they say the b1g1 you have to buy 2, so they wont let me use another q. ๐Ÿ™

    • Melissa R.

      I find that when I give the $/1 item First..then the BOGO, I have no problem with using both coupons. The BOGO coupon WILL beep b/c its asking the cashier to enter the price. I’ve been using that combo at different stores (cvs, walgreens, target) all the time. But I hadn’t attempted to do it at RA yet, but it worked like a charm. I told the guy it was my 1st time using my Wellness card and VV’s and hope I didn’t screw up too much. He laughed and said lets see how ya do. Got everything I wanted and all the +Up rewards printed like they should have. The only downfall is on top of remembering ECBs & RRs, I have to keep track of +Up too! So I started keeping track on my desk calendar!!

    • jessica

      You would need to buy 3 items to use a B1G1 Q and a $/2 coupon. You should be able to use a $/1 coupon with a B1G1 coupon for 2 items.

  28. MoKeaton

    I have a question. If I buy just the Spinbrush sonic rechargeable by itself in 1 transaction, will I be allowed to use all 3 Q’s? The $5/25 RA, the $4 man q, and the $3 VV coupon? I want to do the deal above, and then use all the +up rewards from it, to finish paying for the Spinbrush. Is that possible? It would be like this

    Spinbrush $30 (?)
    $5/25 RA Q
    $4/1 Man Q
    $3/1 VV Q
    $14 +up rewards
    With total OOP $4

  29. Heather

    Anyone know if the new +UP rewards are “rolling”? For example, can you use the $2 +UP from Colgate on another Colgate toothpaste to generate another $2 +UP reward? I’m too chicken to try it and find that it doesn’t work.

    • Jata

      I bought 5 colgate this week and only had to pay the $3 cash the first time and the rest just kept on paying with the $3 Up that prints out after each transaction.

      • Heather

        That’s the one I meant — $3, not $2. Thanks! I’ll try it tonight.

  30. Toni Davis

    Hey Ladies, I don’t have anymore of the reach B1G1, what else can I use?

    • Crystal S

      The July Safeway coupon book has $1.50/2 coupons that could possibly be used instead of the B1G1. I haven’t tried it yet, but am planning on it later in the week.

    • Crystal S

      I just used the Safeway coupon, but I bought the 2 toothbrushes and one of the .99 reach flosses, just to make sure the coupon worked, and it did.

  31. Mary

    I found a $2/1 “Rembrandt Whitening Toothpaste” in the 5/16 RP. Will this work since the $3/1 IP is no longer available?

    • Heather

      I used it last night without any problem.

      • Mary

        Thank you. I plan on getting this deal soon!

    • Anonymous

      I tried the Rembrandt coupon even though someone had said they were all gone, and it printed just fine for me. So it’s worth a shot if you try

      • Anonymous

        try printing the ip one is what I mean

  32. RB

    can I still get an IP “Buy 1 Get 1 Free Reach coupon ” anywhere?

  33. Crystal S

    I went in to try this deal, but the body was was still out of stock. So I replaced the 4 Nivea with 8 Rolaids. And I added 1 bottle of Lipton Tea ’cause I love it! My total oop including tax (which is 9.3% here!) was 5.87. Add in the rebate, gift card, and $7 UP and I think I did pretty good. Thanks for the scenario!

  34. Jennifer

    Went to RA today and they would not let me use a $4 Q for each $1.29 Ace. They did let me use one $4 Q for 2 of the $1.29 Ace. They showed me their coupon policy and it states that coupons are not to exceed the price of the product. They are to adjust the coupon down to match the price of the product. So not as much of a MM for me.

  35. J Carter

    I bought 2 colgate toothpastes and only got one $3 +up reward. I don’t think the circular said limit one, what is up with that? I am new to Rite Aid!

  36. Smitha

    To qualify for the Oral care rebate, can i purchase the qualifying items in several transactions? The RiteAid stores near us were all out of Nivea Bodywash and Rembrandt toothpaste. So I just bought the Reach toothbrush and the Colgate Toothpaste..
