  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 6/12 – 6/18/11

    You’ll find a list of this week’s Walgreens deals here.

    If you’re new to The Drugstore Game, these new starter transactions will help you get your feet wet and show you how The Drugstore Game can save you money on things you already buy. If you don’t understand the transactions, read my Drugstore Game Primer, Common Sense with Money’s FAQ (which has a handy explanation of acronyms), and my explanation of How to Play The Drugstore Game at Walgreens. In these transactions, I assume that you do not have any Register Rewards to start with.

    Transaction #1:
    BUY:
    1 Wal-Fex 24 hr allergy 5 ct @ $3.99
    1 Bayer Advanced Aspirin 20-24 ct $3

    USE:
    $2/1 Bayer Advanced Aspirin SS Insert 6/12/2011

    Pay: $4.99 + tax
    Receive: $3.99 RR for Wal-Fex & $1 RR for Bayer

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    1 Blistex For Men Lip Balm @ $2
    1 Colgate 360 Toothbrush @ $2.99

    USE:
    $1/1 Colgate 360 Surround Toothbrush May 2011 All You
    $3.99 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Blistex & $1 RR for Colgate
    Note: Wal-Fex RR may print for $4 instead of $3.99, in which case you’ll need a small filler like a Tuf paper towel roll for $0.50 with in-ad coupon.

    At this point, you’ve spent $4.99 + tax for allergy meds, aspirin, lip balm and a toothbrush. Plus you’ve got $4 in Register Rewards to roll next, or into this week’s Schick or Gillette razor deals, or to spend on sale items like Lysol toilet bowl cleaner ($0.99 after coupons), cleaning products or laundry detergent.
