Today is the last day of the current sale week of the Drugstores~CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walgreens.
These Air WIcks were NOT on sale this week, the were on sale the week before at CVS. They were out of stock when I went, so I got a raincheck. So I went in to CVS today since the $4 off coupon expires tomorrow and got 5 of these for $5.88 and got $10 Extra Bucks back.
If you go to CVS, and they are out of your sale item, GET A RAINCHECK!! So what if you don’t get your deal for a coupole weeks, you will still get it, and it isn’t like I was out of air freshener!!
I also got a raincheck for the Starbucks VIA, DiGiorno B1G1, and the Huggies Slip-on Deal. So before those coupons expire, I should be able to go back and get those items at the sale price!

I have heard from lots of people how frustrating it is to read about all of these good deals, and then when you go to the store, they are out of the really good stuff. I can tell you this-GET A RAINCHECK. Here are the raincheck policies for each of these stores as well as there stocking schedules…
CVS will give you a raincheck for their in ad sale items. They will also give you a raincheck for their Extra Bucks. CVS Rainchecks never expire, so you can use them anytime after the sale (Just remember to use it before your coupons expire!)
So if you go in there and they don’t have it, ask for a raincheck and you can go back and get it any time you want!
Sometimes if I don’t make it to a store in the beginning of the week, I stop by on Saturday and just get rainchecks for the items they are out of. Sometimes a better coupon comes along.
Rite Aid will give you a raincheck for their sale items as well. They try to encourage you to come back on Friday when they get their next shipment in, but I just tell them I might not be able to do that. They will give you a raincheck with the ad price with the amount of +Up Rewards you should get for the purchase.
Then when you redeem your raincheck, they lower the price of the item by the amount of the +Up Rewards! In most cases, this works out better because you spend less out of pocket, the downside is you do not get any +Up Rewards for later.
1-800-RITE-AID is their phone number and they can answer any questions you have as well.
Walgreens is my LEAST favoritestore. They rarely have all the items they have advertised in stock, and they do NOT raincheck their Register Rewards. They will only raincheck their sale price. So, if you really want something at Walgreens, you have to get there early on Sunday or find one that stocks up on sale items (let me know if you ever found one!)
