Rite Aid take 1, 2 and 3

I have been reading several blogs who's writers are Rite Aid deal stalkers.  I like Rite Aid its a nice enough store but before they initiated their +UP's Program I was not one to be down for their Single Check Rebate Program (which they still offer), I only feel this way because I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE high OOP.  I know I shouldn't, especially if you end up getting the money back like Rite Aid's SCR program but I just can't wrap my head around it. 
I dunno, just dumb I guess. 
But I decided to jump head first into Rite Aid where I knew I could have a low OOP scenario with a fair amount of Rite Aid +UP's (Rite Aid dollars) back. 
And it worked.
So I having been trying to work the deals every week. 
And so far Rite Aid has been good to me.  Better than CVS even and I love CVS--ALOT.

This is 3 shops combined and I am on the verge of going in for a 4th trip but I think I might be overdoing it.  The only thing pushing me to go in again is because my mom and mother in law could greatly benefit from some of these items!!

Rite Aid is extremely difficult for me to explain to another human being so if you are interested in joining in the Rite Aid fun then I would suggest heading over to West Coast Savings or I Prefer Publix or The Great Shopping Game, they do a much better job than I do and make it look very easy!!
