  • Rite Aid Starter Scenarios: 11/27 – 12/3/11

    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 Theraflu Packets 6 ct., Caplets 24 ct., Warming Liquid 8.3 oz. @ $4.99

    $2/1 Theraflu Multi-Symptom Severe Cold With Lipton Green Tea & Honey Lemon Flavors 9/25 Smart Source
    $1/1 Theraflu Product Dec. Video Values printable

    Pay: $1.99 + tax
    Receive: $2 +UP reward

    Transaction #2:
    1 St. Joseph Aspirin (120 ct.) @ $4.99

    $1/1 St. Joseph Aspirin 8/7 or 9/11 Smart Source or Aug 2011 All You
    $2 +UP from previous transaction

    Pay: $1.99 + tax

    Transaction #3:
    1 Tide Laundry Detergent Liquid @ $5.97

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.45 + tax for Theraflu, aspirin, laundry detergent and dish detergent, plus you’ll have $1 +UP reward to roll next week or spend this week. That makes your net cost just $3.45 + tax, which you could easily spend just on the Tide at other stores.
