  • Drugstore Game Padawan Update: Revlon scenario

    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. Please read my Drugstore Game Primer and Common Sense with Money’s FAQ to get an overview of the Drugstore Game and definitions.

    Nicole found some Oust, so she was able to do the scenario I suggested on Tuesday. She used the $1/1 Almay coupon that Kim was kind enough to let me know about, paid $1.98 plus tax out of pocket and received $12 in ECBs.

    Kim was also nice enough to let me know that there’s a $1/1 Revlon eye color coupon at the Target web site, and suggested the following scenario:

    3 Revlon eye compacts $6.99 each

    Use 3 $1/1 coupons
    Use the $12 in ECBs

    Pay $5.97 + tax
    Receive $7 ECBs (the deal is buy $15 of Revlon, receive $7 ECBs)

    Looking ahead, there are a bunch of free-after-Register Rewards items at Walgreens next week. One of them is Blink eye drops, and there should be a $2 coupon in Sunday’s paper to turn the deal into a moneymaker.
