Rite-Aid Newbie (8/28-9/3)

Welcome to this weeks' installment of "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.

As always, 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. See the full match-up for this week here.

You will want to familiarize yourself with the various Rite-Aid 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.

This weeks' deals are a great example of why you want to watch ALL the Video Values videos each month. The scenario today utilizes two Video Value coupons from the August videos. But you had to view these videos before they expired on 8/27. The coupons for August videos are good through 9/24/2011.
