  • Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 6/12 – 6/18/11

    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 may also need to register for Rite Aid Video Values to get some of the coupons listed below.

    Transaction #1:
    1 Bayer Advanced Aspirin @ $3.99
    2 Axe Deodorant and/or Body Spray @ 2/$8.88

    $2/1 Bayer Advanced Aspirin 06/12/11 SS
    B1G1 Axe Deodorant or Body Spray 05/22/11 RP

    Pay: $6.43 + tax
    Receive: $1.99 +UP for Bayer & $3 +UP for Axe

    Transaction #2:
    1 Lysol Healthy Touch Hand Soap System, $7.49
    1 Rite-Aid Facial Tissue, $0.88

    $3/1 Lysol Healthy Touch No-Touch Starter Kit 06/12/11 SS or printable
    $1.99 +UP from previous transaction
    $3 +UP from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.38 + tax
    Receive: $3 +UP from previous transaction

    At this point, you’ve paid $6.81 for aspirin, 2 Axe products, a no-touch soap system, and tissue. Axe products rarely go on sale this cheap these days, and I’ve been told that tween boys especially love this stuff so I’m wondering if it’s too early to start stocking up. You’re also left with $3 +UP that you can roll next week, or use on this week’s sale items, which include dishwashing detergent ($0.88) and Sunmaid raisins ($2).
