  • The Drugstore Game This Week: Starter Rite Aid Transactions 11/28 – 12/4/10

    If you’re new to playing The Drugstore Game, this transaction 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.

    The Video Values Reward coupon is now $3 off a $20 purchase, but the deals are pretty weak this week so I”m not going to get you to the $20 mark. If you see something in the ad that you like, however, you can consolidate the transactions below and use the $3/$20 coupon to reduce your out of pocket expenses.

    Transaction #1:
    1 Bee MD Cough Drops, $2.99

    Pay: $2.99 + tax
    Receive: $2 +UP
    Submit for $1 Bee M.D. Product Mail-in Rebate

    Transaction #2:

    – $4/1 Gillette Fusion Pro Glide Razor, exp. 12-31-10 (P&G 11/28/10)
