  • The Drugstore Game This Week: Starter Rite Aid Transactions 6/13 – 6/19/10

    If you’re new to playing The Drugstore Game, these transactions should help you get started. If you don’t understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money’s FAQ, and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at Rite Aid. You’ll find a list of this week’s Rite Aid deals here.

    It’s a good week at Rite Aid. My basic advice is to buy enough free and cheap items to get your total up to $20 or $25 so you can use the $5 off $20 purchase coupon at Rite Aid Video Values or the $5 off $25 purchase coupon for registering your Wellness+ card online. Here’s an example:

    2 Old Spice Body Wash, $2.99 each with Wellness Card
    2 Old Spice Deodorant, $2.49 each with Wellness Card
    1 Herbal Essences Shampoo, Conditioner or Styler, $2.49 with Wellness Card
    2 Clearasil Skin Care, $4.99 each (Buy one, get one 50% off)

    – $5/$20 Video Values coupon
    – 2 x 2 Buy 1 Old Spice Body Wash or Deodorant, get 1 free Old Spice Body Wash from 6/6 P&G
