  • Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 5/1 – 5/7/11

    You’ll find a list of this week’s Rite Aid deals here.

    If you’re new to The Drugstore Game, these new starter transactions will help you get your feet wet and show you how The Drugstore Game can save you money on things you already buy. If you don’t understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money’s FAQ (which has a handy explanation of acronyms), and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at Rite Aid.

    Be sure to sign up for a Wellness+ card – you’ll need it for the following deals (get it in store instead of online so they give you the card right away). You’ll also need to register for Rite Aid Video Values to get some of the coupons listed below.

    Transaction #1:
    Buy 2 Oral B Toothbrush Advantage Plus toothbrushes @ $2.99 each

    Use 2 x $1.50/1 Oral B Advantage Toothbrush 5/1 P&G

    Pay: $2.98 + tax
    Receive: 2 x $2 +UP rewards

    Transaction #2:
    Buy 1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power or Manual Razor @ $9.99

    Use $4/1 Gillette Fusion 5/1 P&G
    And use 2 x $2 +UP rewards from previous transaction

    Pay: $1.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 +UP reward

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.97 + tax for 2 toothbrushes and a razor, and have $5 in +UP rewards to roll next week or to spend on things you need (like Excedrin PM, Carefree pantiliners, or Dial soap, all of which are on sale this week). You’d pay $5 just for the razor at Target!
