  • Rite Aid Black Friday Scenarios 2011

    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.

    Note: These scenarios include weekly deals; these deals will change here in SoCal on Friday (11/26). I’ll try to update this post with the new weekly deals, but I expect to be rather busy this Thanksgiving weekend so I may not be able to get to it in a timely fashion.

    Transaction #1:
    1 Samy Fat Foam Hair Color @ $8.99

    $3/1 Samy Fat Foam Permanent Hair Color 10/9 Red Plum insert (regional coupon)
    $2/1 Samy Fat Foam Oct. Video Values printable

    Pay: $3.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 +UP reward

    Transaction #2:
    2 Scunci Elastics (18 pk.) @ $1.99
    1 Marc Anthony Shampoo, Conditioner, or Stylers @ $3.99
    1 Holiday Bonus Buy Item (includes gift wrap, cards, card games) @ $1

    $3/1 Marc Anthony Item Oct. Video Values printable
    $5 +UP reward from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.97 + tax
    Receive: 2 x $1.99 +UP reward for Scunci and $2 +UP reward for Marc Anthony

    Transaction #3:
    1 Bounty Basic Paper Towels (8 pk.) @ $5.77
    1 Holiday Bonus Buy Item @ $1

    $0.50/1 Bounty Towels 10/30 P&G insert
    2 x $1.99 +UP reward from previous transaction
    $2 +UP reward from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.79 + tax
    Receive: $1 +UP reward for Bounty

    In sum, you’ll pay $5.75 + tax for hair color, a hair care product, 2 packs of hair elastics, paper towels, and 2 holiday items. Plus, you’ll have $1 +UP reward to roll next week or spend this week, for a net cost of $4.75 for all for all of these items. You could easily spend that just on the paper towels at other stores.
