  • *GONE* My Walgreens Trip & An Expired RR Giveaway

    Congrats to Arlene and Jennifer for being the fastest two with their email!

    I went to Walgreens today, because I couldn’t, of course, pass up the 15% off Friends & Family coupon. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go as planned. Here’s how I expected my first transaction to go (prices after 15% discount):

    4 Revlon slant tweezers $2.11 x 4
    2 Colgate paste $2.55 x 2
    2 Edge $1.70 x 2
    2 Gain $0.76 x 2 (after in-ad coupon)

    - 4 x $2/1 Revlon product Target manu printable (no longer available?)
    - 4 x $1/1 Revlon eye tool from April coupon book
    - 2 x $1.50/1 Colgate toothpaste 3/27 SS
    - 2 x $0.55/1 Edge shave gel 3/20 SS
    - 2 x $1/1 Gain from P&G Everday Savings booklet

    Pay: $0.36 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR for Colgate + $2 RR for Edge

    I didn’t have any RR to start because my RRs expired while I was convalescing. So my plan was to use the overage from the Revlon and Gain to “pay” for the Colgate and Edge. However, my store didn’t have any Revlon tweezers at that price. So I hemmed and hawed but eventually ended up doing this transaction minus the Revlon. At least I had a gift card that covered the $4.90 total ($3.92 + tax).

    Then I planned to buy 2 Always Dri-Liners using the Colgate RR but my store didn’t have any that rang up at the $3 price. (See the deal listed at the end of Common Sense with Money’s post.) And there was only 1 Leakguard Plus. So I couldn’t do that deal and roll the way I wanted to.

    I did end up doing three more transactions, buying more Colgate in the first, and more Edge/Skintimate in the last two, but I spent about $4 more out of pocket than I had planned.

    I asked if they would take my expired RR, but the answer was no. So, the first two people to send me an email with “Expired Walgreens RR” in the subject line and their name and mailing address in the body of the email will each get one $2 RR that expired on 3/28. I’ll update this post when the RRs are both gone. Good luck!
