DF (Discussions on Frugality) - Best Deal of the Week

Warning: I have 1 or 2 male readers, a stat which includes my dear husband. However low that number may be, however, I thought it prudent to issue a warning of sorts. So here goes...if you have little no interest in hearing the best deal out there on feminine hygiene products, I will not be in the least offended if you just click the little x at the top right of your screen.

You're welcome.

So here's the deal. I went to Rite Aid today with my littlest man (and if he only knew what those items in that box are, he would never have agreed to go with me). There they have Kotex Lightdays on sale for $2.99.

But wait. Through their rebate program, Rite Aid is offering a $2.00 rebate on the purchase of the $2.99 Lightdays, bringing the price down to just $.99. And the rebate program is so much easier now. Back when Rite Aid was Eckerds, you had to locate receipts, copy receipts, fill out forms, address envelopes, affix stamps. It was a process not really worth a rebate. Now you just go to the Rite Aid website, sign in, enter some info from your receipt, and you're done. The check shows up in your mailbox a few weeks later.

Where was I? Oh, yes...1 box (the rebate does limit 1) of Kotex Lightdays for $.99.

But wait. I had a coupon for $1.00. Which brings the price down to $-.01! I made a penny on my purchase. Now those are the type of transactions that make coupons totally worth the hassle.

Ok, so I'm not sure where the nearest Rite-Aid is to us. I'm going to have to check. But the awesome news is that I didn't know Eckerd's had become Rite-Aid. I used to love Eckerd's back in Shreveport 'cause they were open 24 hours! LOL! So see? You still helped me!

LOVE your disclaimer at the beginning. For a brief second I was tempted to skip the post because I, um, don't have those parts anymore and can't benefit from such deals--but I decided to anyway, just for a good, heartwarming yay-for-the-consumer tale. I don't think I've ever been paid to take a product of any kind out of a retail store. Way to go!!

Very cool, and very funny. Ditto on what crossview said. Don't have coupon... not sure we even have riteaid. hhmm.....
BUT I am extremely happy for you!

Woo hoo for you! There are also various Walgreens and CVS deals of similar nature that I read about all the time on others blogs, but have never had the time to pursue. Possible for those that don't have Rite aid?
