  • Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 7/31 – 8/6/11

    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 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power or Manual Razor @ $9.99

    $4/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor 7/31 P&G insert

    Pay: $5.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 +UP

    Transaction #2:
    1 Oral B Complete or 3D Action Power Toothbrush @ $5.99
    3 Puffs tissue @ $0.97 each

    $3/1 Oral-B Battery Toothbrush 7/31 P&G insert
    $0.25/3 Puffs tissue 7/31 P&G insert
    $5 +UP from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.65 + tax
    Receive: $2.99 SCR for Oral B

    Your out of pocket costs will be $6.64 + tax for all of these things, but you’ll get $2.99 back via SCR so your total cost is really only $3.65 + tax. The regular price for two boxes of tissue at most stores would be more than that, so you can see how playing The Drugstore Game gets you a lot more stuff for the same amount of money.
