Rite-Aid Newbie (7/31-8/6)

Welcome to the first installment of a new feature on the blog called "Rite-Aid Newbie". Each week I will giving you a scenario for shopping at Rite-Aid that will be easy to follow and will score you some great deals. These deals will be put together for the Newbie shopper. I will not use more than 2 like coupons in any scenario and will (generally) keep it to one or two transactions.

A little housekeeping before we dive into this week's deals.

First, a HUGE thank you to Melody from This Beautifual Frugal Life and Angela from Frugal Living NW for giving me permission to use the match-ups that Melody posts on Frugal Living NW each week in order to put together these scenarios. I do not have the brain power to dissect the Rite-Aid ad like Melody does and I bow to her expertise.

Second, you will want to familiarize yourself with Rite-Aid various coupon programs before you get started. Make sure you are a Wellness+ member. Sign up here if you aren't a member yet. Then check out my posts about +UP Rewards and Single Check Rebates. You will also want to create an account here to access the Video Values coupons.

Okay, let's get started.

Transaction #1

(1) Gillette ProGlide Razor ($9.99)
- $4/1 Gillette ProGlide Razor (7/31 P&G insert)

= $5.99
Receive a $5 +UP Reward

Transaction #2
