How I Use Rite Aid +Up Rewards To Get Things I Need For Cheap

First of all, let me say that I am no expert on coupons, but I can follow along enough on Southern Savers or Hip2Save to get some pretty sweet deals.

Here is how I got a whole bunch of useful things including diapers for less than the price of generic diapers at Wal-mart.

I started out with a $3 Rite Aid Single Check Rebate from something that I bought last month. I could have started with a +Up Reward or used cash and my total out of pocket would have been slightly higher. These transactions were done at 3 different locations on two different days, because some of the stores were out of things that I wanted. Luckily, I have several Rite Aid locations very close to my house. Check out Southern Savers post for the details on this week's sale and the location of the coupons.
