Rite Aid paid me $2.97 to take this!

I made a quick trip to Rite Aid today with Grace. Thankfully, they are only 4 businesses away, so it's about a 5 minute walk for us. I bought all of the items above with tax for $8.03, but I am getting back $11 in Single Check Rebates. And it is all stuff I use! I see many scenarios out there for things that are near free, but seriously, I'm getting to the point that if I can't use it, it doesn't make much sense to buy it. How many Ultra Freshmatic Air Fresheners do you need? I don't think they make that great of a gift either, unless as a housewarming gift. But even then, you run the risk of offending them..."Oh, so my house stinks, huh?"

Below is the details to my scenario:
1 Suave Body Lotion $1.99 each on sale
5 Johnson & Johnson Baby Care Products (lotion, shampoo, bubble bath, cream, bath soap) $2.99 each on sale
2 Covergirl Makeup items BOGO on sale (one was $9.99, the free one was $8.69)

Total before coupons: $29.03

Gave cashier these coupons:
-$5 off $20 purchase from Rite Aid AdPerks (gave to her first, as the other coupons would put me under $20) or you could use $5 off $25 purchase here

-$1 off 1 Suave body lotion

-(3) $1 off Johnson's Baby Product 09/13RP and $2 off 2 from J & J's website

-Buy One CoverGirl Fdtn., Get One CG Face Product Free 08/30 P&G

Total after coupons: $5.94 + $2.09 tax = $8.03 - $11.00 in Single Check Rebates = $2.97 profit
