This is my 1st brag on the KCL and I think it’s a great one!
I had been hearing (reading) about the great clearance deals on baby items going on at Rite Aid so, having 1 in diapers and one on the way, I figured I would go check it out to see if I could score some of the same deals! Well, I was pleasantly surprised! The 1st Rite Aid I went to, the manager showed me a few boxes of diapers! He even told me “They will ring up 21.99 but they’re on clearance for $5.50 AND you get a $5 UpReward for each box!” Whoa! And that is without coupons! Thank you Mr. Manager! .50 a box!? I can deal with that! =D Unfortunately, not all the Rite Aids in my area were participating in the same great deal but I was able to score 14 boxes and a few other items on clearance from 3 different stores!
I could have done a better job at finding coupons/printing them and rolling the Up Rewards and such but I know I’ll use them so I didn’t bother. And I probably could have used more $5rewards on some transactions but I didn’t want to run too close with taxes etc. The Managers also had to override the price because they would ring up 21.99.
