Rite-Aid Newbie (9/11-9/17): $50 in products for $0.50!

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.

A couple of notes:

The Oral Care promotion (spend $25 on participating products and receive $5 +UP) has been running for a while and has a limit of 1. So if you have already earned that reward, skip the Listerine in Transaction #2.

This scenario will leave you with $14 in +UP Rewards. Personally, I would hold on to those for next week but if you want to use them right away, make sure to check out the full list of deals at Frugal Living NW for the best way to use them.
