  • Rite Aid Starter Scenarios: 4/22 – 4/28/2012

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

    $2/1 Samy Fat Hair Product printable
    $3/1 Samy Fat Foam Hair Color April Video Values printable

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

    Transaction #2:
    3 Dentyne Ice @ 3/$3
    1 Veet product @ $4.99
    1 Bumble Bee Tuna or Snow’s Chopped Clams @ $1.25
    1 Kleenex @ $1

    $1/2 Dentyne Gum from 3/4 Smart Source (regional coupon)
    $2/1 Veet Product printable
    $2/1 Veet Product in-ad coupon
    $5 +UP from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.24 + tax
    Receive: $2 +UP for Dentyne & $1 +UP for Veet

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.23 + tax for hair color, 3 packs of gum, Veet, tuna and tissue – plus you’ll have $3 in +UPs to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $1.23. You’d pay that just for the tissue at other stores.
