  • Rite Aid Starter Scenarios: 6/17 – 6/23/2012


    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 Colgate Max Fresh Toothpaste @ $2.99

    $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste from 6/3 Red Plum or printable

    Pay: $2.24 + tax
    Receive: $2.50 +UP reward

    Transaction #2:
    1 Arm & Hammer or Arrid XX Deodorant @ $2.99

    $2.50 +UP reward from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.49 + tax
    Receive: $2 +UP reward

    Transaction #3:
    2 Softsoap Premium Liquid Hand Soap @ 2/$4

    2 x $1/1 Softsoap printable
    $2 +UP reward from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $1 +UP reward for Softsoap

    In sum, you’ll pay $2.73 + tax for toothpaste, deodorant, and two bottles of soap – plus you’ll have a $1 +UP reward to roll next week (or spend this week), making your net cost just $1.73 + tax. You’d pay more than that for any one of these items at other stores!
