    Yeah, the Special K Q is max $4.49. My cashier was on the ball and read the Q, so I paid 30 cents for 2 boxes. Still better than paying 50 cents for 2 boxes at Walgreens this week or *gasp* paying full price somewhere.

  • Oxymoron02 Jan 13, 2011

    Made my Rite Aid score today. OOP I paid $15 (even, which is weird), got back $10 in +up AND I can submit for the $7.99 Blink rebate.

    Moneymaking, aw yeah!

    They were out of the Motrin PM, or I'd have done better. ;) Ended up having to settle for the Tylenol Precise patches as a slight money maker.

    Whoo hoo - I felt like a superstar at checkout today! Thanks for the heads up on the Special K online coupons. I told the cashier I felt like I was stealing something I made out so good and she said I know!

    Purplepat - That's how it worked for me yesterday. Only catch is the cereal is $4.79 a box, and the coupon I think was only "free" up to $4.49 or $4.39, so technically you end up paying 30 or 40 cents total for 2 boxes (plus tax)...but you still can't beat that deal! :)

  • purplepat777 Jan 10, 2011

    I'm having difficulty understanding the BOGO on Special K products. Are you saying that because Rite Aid has a BOGO deal and if I print out the BOGO coupon from Kellogg's that I can take 2 boxes up to the cash register and get both for free?

    I went to Rite Aid and purchased (2) Mortin PM-20 count using the "Save $6.00 on any two products coupon. I paid $.47 in tax and got back (2) $2.00 Register Rewards-total of $4.00, so I consider this a $3.53 money maker. :-)
