  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 6/5 – 6/11/11

    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:
    2 Advanced Design Reach Toothbrush 2-pack @ 2/$5

    2 x $2/2 Reach Toothbrushes 5/8/2011 SS

    Pay: $1 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 Nivea For Men Body Wash @ 2/$7
    1 Sobe Life Water @ $1

    2 x $2/1 Nivea Men’s Body Wash 6/5/2011 RP
    $3 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $1 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Nivea & $1 RR for Sobe

    Transaction #3:
    1 Glad Trash Bags @ $6.99
    2 Butterball Chicken Broth @ 2/$1 with in-ad coupon

    $1/1 Glad Force Flex Trash Bags printable (FF or IE)
    $1/1 Glad Trash Bags Walgreens printable IVC
    $2 RR from previous transaction
    $1 RR from previous transaction
    in-ad coupon for Butterball broth

    Pay: $2.99 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.99 + tax for 4 toothbrushes, 2 bottles of body wash, 1 bottle of Sobe, 1 box of trash bags, and 2 cans of chicken broth. You’d pay more than that just for the trash bags at Target – I always experience sticker shock when I have to price the trash bags there.
