  • Rite Aid Starter Scenarios: 3/25 – 3/31/2012

    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 Idea:
    1 Carefree Pantiliners @ $1
    1 U by Kotex Liners @ $1
    Colgate Optic White Toothbrush @ $3.49
    1 Kleenex @ $0.99

    $1/1 Carefree Product from 3/18 Smart Source
    $1/1 U by Kotex Product from 3/25 Smart Source or printable
    $1/1 Colgate 360 Optic White Toothbrush from 3/11 Smart Source
    $3/1 Colgate Optic White Toothbrush March Video Values printable

    Pay: $0.48 – $0.99 + tax, depending on whether the Colgate coupons are adjusted to match the price

    The +UP and SCR deals are a little slow this week, so I’ve focused on the freebies, which makes this a great, easy starter scenario. Have fun!
