I also headed to Rite Aid today for the Quilted Northern after viewing the video and getting my $5 off 2 coupon. I also had two $1 off coupons, which they let me use because the $5 coupon was a Rite Aid coupon. In addition, I got two GE CFL bulbs for $2 each, which have a SCR of $2. I also used two $1.25 coupons for these. Lastly, this Rite Aid had in stock the Crest with Scope for $2.69 with a $2.69 SCR, and I had a $1 coupon. I walked out with two 12 packs of toilet paper, two light bulbs, and toothpaste for $6.27 with tax. With the $4.69 in rebates, it will only have cost me $1.58!!! Thanks again, Jennifer! You're truly a blessing.

A P.S. to my earlier comment. I also used a $3 off a $15 purchase coupon, which I received in an e-mail from Rite Aid. Can they make it any easier?

Kathy, you really did hit all of the big deals this week! Which Rite Aid did you go to? I only go to Barnesville and Steubenville, because they're on my usual routes. I've never been to the one in Bellaire. If you have, let me know what you think of it too. We're down there to visit my grandma sometimes, so I could swing by there too.

This time I went to the Barnesville store. It's a little out of the way for me, but I figured these deals were worth the gasoline and time. I think the Bellaire store is a little smaller than Barnesville. The Wheeling store in Elm Grove is very nice. You could hit it on your way to Target.

Hello. I am wondering where you got the $5 off 2 Quilted Northern Video Value coupon. I have watched most of the videos but there is no Northern Coupon. Is that from this month or last month? Thank you for your time.

Anonymous -- This was a deal from November 2009, so the coupon is probably no longer available.
