  • Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 6/19 – 6/25/11

    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 Colgate Max White Toothpaste @ $2.99
    1 St. Joseph Enteric Aspirin (36 ct.) @ $1.50

    Colgate Max Clean, Max Fresh or Max White Toothpaste May 2011 All You

    Pay: $3.49 + tax
    Receive: $2.99 +UP for Colgate & $1.50 +UP for St. Joseph

    Transaction #2:
    1 Prell Conditioner (13.5 oz.) @ $3.99
    3 Stride 2.0, Spark, or Shift Gum (14 ct.) @ $1 each

    At this point, you’ve spent $3.49 + tax for toothpaste, 2 bottles of aspirin, 3 packs of gum, and a bottle of conditioner, and you’ll get back $2 via SCR (don’t forget to submit your receipt online!), and have $2.50 in +UP rewards – that’s $1 profit, pre-tax! The toothpaste alone would cost $3.50 at some stores. You can save the +UP rewards to roll next week or to spend on this week’s sale items, like store brand bleach (Buy One, Get One Free), Off! products, or bottled water ($2.99 for a 24-pack).
