Shop #1, I got 8 12-packs of Mtn. Dew/Code Red/Voltage. Found a thing of Benevia on clearance for $3.50 and had $5.00 MQ. With a couple of Thermacare overage and the $5/$25 Rite Aid coupon, I ended up being paid $0.12.
I really don't like doing that, but the tax is usually alot higher. I can never figure tax right.

Shop #2, found lots more Benevia on clearance. I only had (9) coupons with me so that's how many I got. Also got Yakisoba ($0.60 - .50 (doubled)= +.40), Breakstone Sour Cream ($1.00 each - $5/5 IP = Free), and Yoplait Greek Yogurt ($1.19 each - $1.19 BOGO PQ - .30 (doubled) MQ x 2 = +.01) just so I would look like I was buying something more than just Benevia.

I got a $25 gift card and paid $12.12 from another gift card, so that means I banked $12.88 for later shopping.

Where did the Benevia $5/1 coupon come from? Must have missed that one. Thanks :)

Alicia, it's a .pdf printable coupon I've had for a good while. Can't remember where it came from originally, but I think it was released back when these things first came out as a new product. Or first I ever heard of them anyway.

I can send you the coupon if you want it.

If you are feeling generous and want to send the coupon my way that would be awesome. We may be heading to Publix in alabama tomorrow and I would like to have the q just in case I find it on clearance as well. I doubt I will but

That's very generous of you. Thank you!! The time and energy you put in to posting your shops is also much appreciated. I always check your blog before I make my list :) amichaelis at juno dot com Thanks again!

Sent it, Alicia. Let me know if doesn't arrive okay.
Thanks for the props (undeserved as they are) lol.
I hope you are really checking sites like I Heart Saving Money, Hip2Save, Southern Savers, etc. before making your list :-)

Just remembered, if either of you shop Rite Aid, I believe the Benevi are BOGO at $8.99 until sometime towards the end of the month...I forget what the deal is called Twosome or Twosies or something.

Anyway, if they are, you can use (2) coupons on BOGO, so you can get the Benevia free, but $8.99 towards your total to get you up to $25 to be able to use the $5/$25 coupons. And if you can get away with it, possibly $1.01 overage.

There's no limits on the BOGO stuff, so if they have enough in stock you can as many as 6 boxes free, and use the $5/$25 coupon to buy or go towards something you need like milk or cheap diapers.
