  • The Drugstore Game This Week: Starter Rite Aid Transaction 9/5 – 9/11/10

    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. In this transaction, I assume that you do not have any +UP rewards to start.

    2 Nature’s Bounty Your Life Multi, Buy One, Get One @ $7.41 (per Rite Aid online price)
    1 L’Oreal Excellence or Excellence To-Go Hair Color, $8.99

    Subtotal: $25.28

    Note: This deal is still a moneymaker even if you don’t have the L’Oreal Video Values coupon. Please check the shelf price on the deodorant and Nature’s Bounty products, as I’ve noticed that the in-store prices vary somewhat from the online prices.
