Candy Stash!

So, I just got back from Rite Aid where I got the following bags of candy for FREE. Absolutely free!! I am now ready for Halloween (& maybe a little bribery for potty-training, wink*wink)

So, it does take 2 seconds of planning, but I think it's totally worth it!
You also must have a Wellness Card and be SURE they scan it before ringing up any item or the rewards won't come through. If you don't have a card, sign-up is quick, easy, & free.

Rite Aid has the following candies on sale 2 for $5.
* Skittles 14 oz
* Swedish Fish 14 oz
* Cow Tail Minis 10 oz
* Starburst 14oz
* Jolly Ranchers 14oz
* Caramel Cremes 12 oz
* Sour Patch Kids 14 oz
* Jolly Rancher Pops 10 oz
* Charms Blow Pops 10.4 oz or 11.4 oz
* Dum Dum Pops 11.4 oz
* Lifesaver Mints Wint o Green 13 oz

However, after you purchase, 3 extras will print on your receipt - a $1 reward and two $2 rewards. These are the same as cash!

So here's how it works: buy 2 bags. Pay $5, your $5 rewards will print. Use these to purchase the next 2 bags, then use those rewards to purchase the next 2 bags, etc....The rewards will only print for up to 12 bags. So you would have to ring up 6 orders, but hopefully, like me, you'll have a very nice cashier who is thrilled at the deal you are getting. :) So, you will pay $5 up front, but at the end, you end up with $5 in rewards left over and you can use those to purchase whatever, more candy if you have lots of trick-or-treaters!
I found the bags that I got, not by the Halloween candy, but further back where their regular candy section is. Be sure to look for those that have a sign that say 2/$5.
I believe this sale will only be through Saturday (Oct. 9th), so grab it before it's gone.

Hope you're able to score lots of free candy too!
Now I just have to make sure the pregnant momma in my house doesn't eat it all. (That's me!!)

We had a nasty experience today at Rite Aid trying to duplicate this. Maybe word got around?
