  • Rite Aid Starter Transactions: 8/14 – 8/20/11

    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:


    2 Carefree Pantiliners @ 2/$2

    2 Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergent @ $3.99


    2 x $0.50/1 Carefree Product 6/26/2011 Smart Source Insert

    $1/2 Carefree Product August Video Values printable

    $1/2 Arm & Hammer Laundry Product 7/24/2011 Smart Source Insert

    Pay: $6.98 + tax

    Receive: 2 x $2 +UP reward for Arm & Hammer

    Transaction #2:


    3 Back to School Items @ $0.29 each

    2 Rite Aid Tape 3-pack @ $3.69 each & B1G1


    2 x $2 +UP from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.56 + tax

    Receive: $1 SCR for 3 Back to School Items + $3 SCR for tape

    If you do these two transactions, your out of pocket expense will be $7.54 + tax, but you’ll get back a $4 SCR. That means you really pay $3.54 + tax for 2 packages of Carefree, 2 bottles of laundry detergent, and some stationery supplies. You could easily pay that just for one bottle of laundry at most other stores.
