Rite Aid Freebie - OOP vs. Net/Final Price Example

When searching for deals online, you may often see couponing lingo that is difficult to interpret. OOP is a commonly used phrase that stands for "out of pocket." It literally means the money you will be spending out of pocket, although you may end up saving more later through points, rewards, rebates or gift cards. What you actually spend overall after rewards, etc. is called your net or final price.

This week at Rite Aid, Neutrogena soap bars are BOGO 50% off.
In my area, bars are around $3.29 retail.

Buy 1 Neutrogena bar at $3.29
Buy 1 Neutrogena bar $1.64 (BOGO 50%)
= $4.39 OOP

You will get back $5 worth of points wyb 2. You can do this offer twice per Rite Aid card.
=$.07 MM 

So here, the deal is technically a money maker in the long run, but you will be spending $4.93 plus tax out of pocket. 

Happy Couponing!
