Have you ever shopped at CSN Stores?  They recently contacted me and asked me to complete a review for them.  I have seen them mentioned on other blogs, and I have browsed their website a few times, but I have not yet placed an order with them.  CSN is comprised of over 200 websites, including everything from luggage stores to furniture, toys, fashion, items for your pets...I can't think of anything I have not seen carried by them.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to check them out.

Check back here soon and I'll show what I was able to review (it may very well take me HOURS to decide!  There are just so many options!) and let you know my experience with CSN!

Rite Aid:

6 Oberto Beef Jerky
2 Quaker Oatmeal
4 Special K Cereal
4 Stayfree
3 Hormel Compleats
1 Blink Tears

 First I got two Oberto.  $2.50 each, used a $3 Up Reward and two $1 coupons.

Paid $0. 

Got back three $1 Up rewards to make up for the Ups I spent!  :o)

I then purchased 2 Stayfree, 2 Oberto, and 2 Hormel.  After coupons and $8 in UPs I paid .48! 

...and got back:  $7 in Ups

Thennnnn, I got 2 Stayfree, 2 Oberto, 1 Hormel, 2 Quaker Oatmeal, 4 Special K, and 1 Blink Tears.  After coupons and $15 in UPs, I spent a grand total of .23.  And got back $12 in UPs, and a $7.99 rebate for the Blink Tears.
So all in all I spent .71 out of pocket, and $26 in UP rewards.   I "lost" $4 in UPs because I only got back $22, but I got $7.99 cash back from the rebate.  I'm happy with that!

 Rite Aid.

I did this in two transactions.  Ended up spending a little more than I wanted to, but for what I got I'm okay with that.  I spent .63 in my first transaction, and $2.35 in my second... 23 products for a grand total of $2.98 out of pocket.

I went in with $20 in UP rewards that were expiring that day.  I spent them all, but I walked out with $21 in UPs to roll again after all was said and done.  :o)  The school supplies had tags that said $2 UP with purchase.  They did not print correctly according to the signage, but the manager both took the $2 off that should have printed from my first transaction off of the total on my second transaction, and then wrote me a raincheck with the amount of UPs I was owed after my second transaction.
