If you’re just tuning in, I’m mentoring Nicole in The Drugstore Game. If you’ve always wanted to play but weren’t sure how to get started, follow along with Nicole as she becomes a Drugstore Game Master. You can read all of the posts in this series here, in reverse chronological order.
Yesterday, Nicole came up with a transaction that rolled her $2.50 Walgreens Register Reward into a deal for cheap Dryel, which she wanted. Here’s how she did:
Dryel Kit $7.99(On sale from $9.99)
Handy Gloves $.99
Walgreens coupon -$.60
Dryel Manu coupon -$2.00
RR – $2.50
Total out of pocket (OOP) before tax: $3.88
And she received a $3 RR.
Which got me thinking about that $3 RR. Nicole had mentioned to me that she’ll be needing toothpaste soon. So, if she can print the $1/1 Thermacare coupon again, along with the 75 cents/1 Colgate MaxWhite toothpaste coupon, I recommend the following transaction:
1 Thermacare $2.49
1 Colgate MaxWhite Toothpaste $2.99
1 Handsaver gloves 99 cents (filler so you can use the RR)
- $1/1 Thermacare
- 75 cents/1 Colgate
- 60 cents in-ad coupon Handsaver
- $3 RR
Pay $1.12 + tax, and get a $2.50 RR for Thermacare and $2 RR for Colgate
If you plan to do this transaction, keep in mind that your filler item can be anything you want, as long as you don’t use a manufacturer’s coupon on it (because you must have at least as many items as manu coupons, and RR’s are considered manu coupons).
Have fun, everyone!
