My February Widow's Challenge is to play the Drugstore Game consistently this month (and/or get started playing it if you haven't yet)! I managed to head out to my local Rite Aid on Saturday, the last day of last week's circular, to pick up my (6) 1.5 quarts of Dreyer's ice cream plus some other goodies for a $10.34 moneymaker!
I did two transactions, starting with the ice cream:
(6) 1.5 quarts of Dreyer's ice cream @ $2.99 each
Total pre-tax and before Qs= $17.94
$2 off R.A. Video Values Q with 10 Video Credits
$1 off R.A. Video Values Q for Winter Rewards
$1 off R.A. Video Values Q for Non Prescription
$1 off R.A. Video Values Q for Wellness Video
*All of these R.A. Video Values Q can be found and printed under the February Video Values Program.
Total after tax and Qs= $13.39
Got back $17 in UPRs: (6) $2 UPRs for the ice cream plus a $5 UPR for the Up Your Game Promo
(1) Huggies Diapers @ $8.99
(1) Orajel @ $6.99

$17 UPRs from 1st Transaction
Total after tax and Qs= $7.27
Got back $14 in UPRs for next time!
My father-in-law was quite happy with the ice cream purchase! Also, I needed Orajel (teething baby), which was not on sale, but I managed to find a $1/1 Q by using How to Shop for Free's Coupon Database. This is an example of how, when paired with my other deals and surplus of R.A. coupons, I was able to get an additional item that isn't necessarily on sale or free and still have a moneymaker outing!
