  • The Drugstore Game This Week: Starter Rite Aid Transaction 8/22 – 8/28/10

    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.

    1 Chestal Honey Cough Syrup, $7.99
    1 Salonpas Pain Relief Patch, $5.49
    1 Cramp 911 or Stopain Pain Reliever, $6.99
    1 Tone Body Wash, $2.99

    $2/1 Listerine Zero

    The out of pocket expense on this transaction is high if you don’t have any +UP rewards from previous weeks to use, but there are a lot of free-after-SCR products this week that will result in profit when combined with the $5/$25 coupon.
