    Hello! I just uploaded a video of my couponing trip to Rite Aid, CVS and Target this week (week 5/3-5/9).  This week was kind of a rough week, since there were so many deals. I had a really hard time cutting deals out of the video. Plus, my trip to Rite Aid didn’t go as planned. See below for details.

    Note that many of the deals mentioned in the video will end by 5/9/2015. Click on the above video (or click here) to watch it.  Scroll down to see notes from this video. If you are new to Couponing in general, check out my Video Couponing Class Here.

    Click here to see the complete weekly matchup for Rite Aid this week. And go here to see the Rite Aid category of all Rite Aid related deals.

    Rite Aid has started adopting their new reward system called Plenti. There’s a rep in stores to convert your existing Wellness+ reward over to Wellness+ with Plenti. It’s similar to points at Walgreens, plus you can use it at other stores, such as Macy’s. Points do not expire for 2 years.

    • After an hour of talking to several managers and calling their customer service, the best they did for me was issuing an I’m sorry $15 Gift Card.
    • Even though, I should of received $30. I didn’t want to waste any more time and did not pursue to get the remaining $15 gift card.

      Sorry I’m kinda new to Target couponing. I have a few questions for you on the deal with huggies and wipes together. Can I use 2 manufacture on the wipes? You only list one so I was just curious. Also I have a question about the catalina that’s being print out on this deal. Can I use the catalina on any item on the next transaction or is it just for the huggies specifically? If I can use it on any item does it work the same as at Walgreen where I can use it as a filler and the overage roll over to the other items in the cart? Last question is the amount to qualify for the 10 gift card for baby registry is before or after coupons? Thanks.

      • 1.1

        Hi Mindy! Welcome. Great questions.

        1. You can use two wipes coupon. I had changed the scenario from 1 to 2 in order to use the mobile coupon and forgot to update that. Thanks for reminding me. I’ll go update that now.

        2. You can use the catalina on anything in the next transaction.

        3. No need for fillers. Target doesn’t have weird rules like at Walgreens. 🙂

        4. Before coupons, all coupons. So lots of savings. 🙂

        Let me know if you have any other questions.

        • Thanks for replying Tina! unfortunately I still have question about the catalina. I received a $10 catalina manufacture on top with target icon off of my next purchase. Now if I were to buy 4 more huggies and if I were to use 4 of the $4.50/1, will I still be able to use the $10 catalina in this same transaction?

          • Yes you will still receive. Catalinas in this case rolls. HOWEVER, Target had modified this catalina and its no longer working like when I shot this video. You now have to buy 4 to get $5 Cat. And when you buy 2, you get no cat. Hope that helps.

    2. 2

      I did your target huggies scenario and I ended up getting a $10 Catalina coupon!!

    3. 3

      Hi Tina, Trying the diaper deal in target. Can i use 2 target coupns for diapers, as i saw u used only 1 of them… Please reply. Thanks Tina.

    4. 4

      Hi,
      where did you find those $4.50 coupons
      For hugies ?? And how does the Catalina works?
      Thank you

      • 4.1

        The $4.50 coupon is a printable coupon. I have it linked in the breakdown above for the huggies deal.

        Catalina is a coupon printed on receipt paper. You can use it on future transactions like money. But for the huggies deal, the catalina ended early. So its no longer printing.

    5. 5

      Hi Tina!!! Love your page, you are so helpful and informative! Anyways, kind of a stupid question, but can I use the $3/1 box Huggies diapers on a box Pull Ups?

    6. 6

      Question on the wipes…..Where do I get the 2.50 mobile coupon?

    7. 7

      Hi Tina how are you ? I love your page it so help full I still new for coupon (just start 2 months now ) I wondering about I botta ??? How does work ? How you cash back that money ? Can explain to me please

      • 7.1

        Hi there! Thank you! 🙂 Ibotta is a cashback program that you can sign up for online or on your phone. You can shop online or use it from the app on your smartphone. Once you’ve purchased your item, you must scan your product barcodes, then submit a photo of your receipt. You’ll have to choose how you would like your cashback. There are multiple options. If you would like to sign up, here is the site: https://www.freestufffinder.com/go/ibotta/ There is, also, a section on how it works. Hope that is helpful! 🙂

      Hello, I’m new to couponing and have a few questions. I am planning to do the “cereve deal” and would like to know if total has to be over $40 after coupons to get the $10 gift card or does it have to retail $40 than I can use the coupons to get the $10?

      Thanks,
      Rose

      • 8.1

        Total before coupons must be over $40. Hope that helps. If the $10 gift card doesn’t trigger, point out to the cashier that you bought over $40 worth of stuff and they will take care of you. 🙂 Good luck Rose! 🙂

        • Thanks for replying! So i went to Target today to do some couponing and this is what I got. My target’s hand lotion was not 9.99 but i ended up getting 2 facial moisturizing lotions (am/pm) and one skin renewal cream total was 43.97. I used 3 of the $6 off cerave coupon, got $10 back. So my out of pocket cost was 25.97. So it at the end I paid about $.5.32 for each one.

          Then I decided to do a second transaction with the diapers. I did not have the 2 $3.00 off so i just used my $10 gc. But I bought 2 box of diapers for 24.99 and 1 bottle brush for 1.97. They were out of the 1.97 huggies wipe so I will get them later. I used the 5% cartwheel, the registry $10.00 and got the $10 back for purchasing 2. So out of pocket was 39.45. but got $20 back, so I paid 9.72 for each box. My target didn’t give back a catalina coupon ;-/ but I don’t think it was too bad considering it was my first time 🙂

          Thanks so much!

        Hi Shelly,

        I’m sorry about that. The sidebar thingy was designed for a desktop computer. Are you on a mobile device? If so, which one? So I can investigate and get it fixed. It was not intensionally to block your view. 🙂

    10. 10

      Yesterday, May 7, 2015, I purchased the Conair product at $30+ with the Plenti rewards of 1,500 at Rite Aid (using the $10 off one Conair product over $14.99 from the wellness reward videos that are no longer running.) and also the BOGO 50% off on the the Cerave deal (with two of the six dollar Cerave Manufacturer coupons) there under the new Plenti program. Both deals rewarded me Plenti points that were shown on my receipt. I have the equivalent of $18.00. So, maybe they’ve ironed out the kinks? ^^

      • 10.1

        That sounds right. 🙂 What happened was they didn’t have any indication that you needed to spend $30. So that’s why the points wasn’t coming off. 🙂 I’m liking the new reward system tho.
