  • The Drugstore Game This Week: Starter Walgreens Transactions 3/14 – 3/20/10

    If you’re new to playing The Drugstore Game, these transactions should help you get started. If you don’t understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money’s FAQ, and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at Walgreens.

    The Colgate toothpaste is a hot Register Rewards deal, but remember that if you use an RR from the deal to pay for another toothpaste, you won’t get a new RR. You’ll find a list of this week’s Walgreens deals here.

    Transaction #1:
    1 Colgate toothpaste $3.99

    - 1 of the following: $1/1 Colgate Total Enamel Strength Toothpaste; $1/1 Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste; $1/1 Select Colgate Total Products from 3/7 SS

    Pay: $2.99 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 of the following: Select Sudafed, Benadryl and Tylenol Cold $4.99
    1 filler, e.g., Royal Gelatin 20 cents with in-ad coupon

    - 2 of the following: $2/1 Tylenol Cold Product; $2/1 Sudafed Triple Action or PE Triple Action
    - $4 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $2.18 + tax

    You can roll the $5 RR back into the Colgate deal and keep going . . .
