Remember the Rite Aid Holiday Gift of Savings I talked about before? Well after my Black Friday shopping trip today, I am already 1/3 of the way there and I haven't spent a dime! Actually, I'm already making money via the Single Check Rebate (SCR) program. Here's where my tally is at right now:
Huggies Pure and Natural Diapers 11.99 Phillips In Ear Headphones 4.99 Luvs Jumbo pack diapers 9.99 Benevia Nutritional Drink 7.99 Subtotal = 34.96
-11.99 Huggies Free Diaper Voucher (won on Huggies Enjoy the Ride Website) -5.00 Luvs Diaper Coupon (home mailer from a while back) -5.00 Benevia IP coupon = 12.97 + 2.88 tax = 15.85, paid w/ 10.00 Gift Card and 5.85 oop (out of pocket), but will get back 17.98 in SCR.
Total Savings = 39.97 Total = $5.00 Money maker (actually more like a 13.00 moneymaker for me since I paid with a gift card I got for free from a promotion they had last month!) Plus the pre-coupon total (i.e. 34.96) will go towards my 100.00 goal for the Gift of Savings, which when I reach that, means I'll get another 20.00 gift certificate. I still have the 20.00 gift certificate from the Fall Gift of Savings, which I am debating on what to spend it on. The only kicker with the Gift of Savings Program is that the 20.00 comes in the form of a gift certificate good only at Rite Aid and you have to spend it in one transaction. This won't be hard to do since it's the holiday season and I can easily stock up on holiday decorations/gift wrap/stocking stuffers, etc. and again, that purchase will roll into the new Holiday Gift of Savings program (Whew, are you confused yet? ;)
Slowly, over the past few years, my desire to give my two kids the healthiest, most wholesome life I can, has led me on a journey to seek out the healthiest options in every aspect of my family's life - in nutrition, in having a healthy home, and in making good choices that will positively impact the earth that I hope to hang around on long enough to see my grandchildren have children. So here is my journey. I hope you are inspired to begin your own :)
