Decided to go to Walgreens after the two hour trip at Rite Aid. Luckily the manager was limiting transactions so there were a lot of sales items to go around.

Bought $156.83 worth of merchandise for $18.25 OOP and ended with $21 RR.

So I did the first seven transactions at Midnight at the 24 Hour store on Thursday. Loved it. Was missing just one headphone. Even for the 3 day sale the store didn't have much merchandise in stock. Looked like the deals were while supplies last. Took way longer at the store than I thought since I was trying to make sure to pay the least OOP and roll the +UP rewards. Got lucky when I called all the stores around where I live and there was one in stock. Rushed to get it. Got everything on my list for Rite Aid. Bought $89.89 worth of merchandise for $19.33 and ended with $5 +UP reward.
