  • Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 5/15 – 5/21/11

    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 Idea:

    1 Oral B Cross Action toothbrush $2.99
    1 Colgate 360 Surround Manual Toothbrush $2.99
    2 Ziploc slider bags $2 each
    1 Purex 2X Detergent $1.97

    $1.50 off Select Oral-B Products 5/1 P&G
    $1/1 Colgate 360 Toothbrush April or May All You
    $1/2 Ziploc Bags 4/3 or 5/15 Smart Source
    $1/2 Ziploc Sliders Apr. Video Values
    $1/1 Purex Laundry Detergent 5/1/11 RP

    PAY: $6.45 + tax
    RECEIVE: $2 +UP for Oral B, $2 +UP for Colgate, $1 +UP for Ziploc

    At this point, you’ve paid less than $7 for 2 toothbrushes, 2 boxes of Ziploc, and a bottle of laundry detergent – way less than you’d pay for all of those items together at Target or any other store. But you also have $5 in +UP rewards, which you can save to roll next week or to buy more Purex, Huggies diapers (use the $3/1 printable coupons), or even groceries.
