  • Getting Started in The Drugstore Game: New Starter Transactions Start This Week

    I’ve been posting Drugstore Game deals for a while now, and of course it’s one of my favorite and best ways to save money.

    But I have friends who could really use some extra money and who know how much I get for free, but still think it’s not worth the time or effort to learn how to play The Drugstore Game. In truth, I think they’re intimidated, and I can understand why – if you’re not used to using coupons, planning transactions, and have never heard of “rolling,” then the information on how to play The Drugstore Game can be overwhelming.

    That’s why I’ve decided to begin posting Starter Drugstore Game transactions again, only this time I’m going to focus not on how to roll or make money, but on getting things the average person needs or wants at a substantial bargain compared to what they’re probably paying. In other words, I’m going to pretend I’m creating a transaction for a girlfriend just to give her a taste her what’s possible in The Drugstore Game.

    These new starter transactions won’t be for someone who’s “hardcore,” but for those who want to dip their toes in to see what it’s like – hopefully they’ll see that The Drugstore Game really isn’t that hard and can save lots of money.

    I’d love to know if you find these scenarios useful or boring, so please let me know after you’ve seen them!
