  • Rite Aid Starter Scenarios: 9/11 – 9/17/11

    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 Bayer Aspirin (20-36 ct.) @ $2.99
    2 No Nonsense Items @ $1.99 & B1G1 50% off

    2 x $2/1 Bayer Advanced Aspirin 6/12 or 9/30 Red Plum
    $1.50 No Nonsense RA Aug. Video Values printable

    Pay: $3.47 + tax
    Receive: 2 x $1 +UP for Bayer & $2 +UP for No Nonsense

    Transaction #2:
    1 Gentle Naturals or Caldesene Baby Care Product @ $4.99
    1 Campbell’s Tomato or Chicken Noodle Soup @ $0.60

    $1/1 Gentle Naturals Product printable or $1/1 Caldesene Product printable
    2 x $1 +UP from previous transaction
    $2 +UP from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.59 + tax
    Receive: $4 +UP reward
    Note: Since the limit on the baby product +UP reward is 2, you can do this transaction again, buying the product you didn’t buy at first and the $4 +UP reward from this transaction to receive another $4 +UP reward. Then you can move on to Transaction #3.

    Transaction #3:
    2 GE Longlife or Decorative Light Bulbs (2-pack) @ 2/$4

    $4 +UP reward from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $3 SCR

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.06 + tax for 2 aspirin, 2 No Nonsense items, 1 or 2 baby care items, and 4 light bulbs (2 packs of 2). Since you’ll get back a $3 SCR, your net cost will be just $1.06 – less than you’d pay for any one of these items at other stores.
