Rite Aid Shopping and Unadvertised Deals

So I headed out to Rite Aid today for some great shopping and wanted to pass along to you some items that are producing +up rewards that are not advertised.  Also, to give you a couple of deal ideas and share with you what I was able to score!  Pictured below are the items I purchased and paid NOTHING out of pocket for!!!  Retail Cost: $51.91  I paid $0 and still got back $22 in rewards!!!

There are several ways you can work this offer to get some AWESOME deals!

I actually did 2 transactions and used my +up rewards from the first to pay for the second.  And since I had rewards from last week (and a gift card that I was credited with,when some rewards I was owed did not print)...I used those to pay for the first transaction.  I actually left Rite Aid with out spending one single dime out of my pocket!  And I have $22 in Rewards to use for next shopping trip!!
