Weekly Shopping Trips: Rite Aid and Aldi

Rite Aid was my first stop this week because I wanted to snag this great deal on Kellogg’s cereal.

I spent a total of $11.10 on 6 boxes of cereal — and $0.99 for Toy Story pencils on clearance for my son’s birthday party. That comes out to $1.68 per box, but I also have $3 in +UP rewards to spend. Here’s how to snag this deal:

  • Purchase 6 boxes of cereal at RiteAid — they are 3/$7.50
  • Use this $5/5 Printable Coupon (good in Rochester & Buffalo)
  • Spend $10 out of pocket
  • Earn $3 in +UP rewards, making it like paying $1.16/box

Next I headed out to Aldi, where I stocked up on several staples we needed this week.

I was pleased to see Lifeway Kefir at Aldi again for only $2.79. I have also never bought peanut butter at Aldi before. It was only $1.69 compared to $2.49 at Wegmans for their generic brand. I checked the ingredients, and everything was exactly the same and in the same order. I also grabbed a pineapple at Aldi since they were only $1.59 each, which is the lowest price I’ve seen in this area ever.

How did you do with your shopping trips this week??
