  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 6/26 – 7/2/11

    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.

    1 Lumene Make Up Remover @ $5.99
    1 Reach Total Care or By Design Toothbrush @ $2.99

    This is a great example of how you can make money while buying things you need – if you have all of the coupons listed above, you’ll end up making $5.01 profit before taxes while buying makeup remover, a toothbrush, lots of soap, antifungal treatment, envelopes and a poster board. You can’t do that any way other than The Drugstore Game!
