This is along the lines of the CVS Extra Bucks. I had stayed away from it but my coupon QUEEN friend has really gotten me into all things possible with the coupons. Basically, you use their circular and find items that have "rebates." Now, personally rebates give me a bad taste in my mouth b/c I'm never sure they'll come (more like I'm positive they WON'T). But the Coupon QUEEN has assured me this is the easiest system ever. You set up an online account at the Rite Aid website, then when you buy things, you just go back online and enter your receipt #. No having to enter every purchase applicable. It's all done by the receipt.

The reason I'm posting this is because I think it's worth it to get just the "free" stuff. Much like we do the CVS extra bucks "free" items, the Rite Aid ones are truly free. You get back a rebate (freebate haha) of the exact amount of the purchase price, and I am guessing there are different items each week (since I'm just jumping on the train). Today as freebies I got a roll of packing tape (good for books!), a bag of Werther's Dark Chocolate, Crest Pro-Health toothpaste, and lightbulbs. I also used a $1 off coupon I had for Garnier hair products which, combined with the rebate, makes that free too. Not bad for FREE, right? There were some more totally free items, but I only get things I'll use (so baby items, diabetes supplies, contact lens stuff, etc, I never get).

I already went online and submitted my receipt!
