  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 7/2 – 7/9/11


    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:
    1 OralB Advantage toothbrush @ $2.99
    2 OralB Indicator toothbrushes @ 2/$2

    $2/1 Oral B Toothbrushes 7/3/2011 P&G
    $2/2 Oral B Toothbrushes 7/3/2011 P&G

    Pay: $0.99 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR

    Transaction #2:
    Puffs Facial Tissue 2/$3

    $1 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $2 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR

    Transaction #3:
    2 Nabisco Cookies or Crackers, 4 – 8 oz @ $1.99 + BOGO Free
    1 Ajax cleaner @ $0.34 with in-ad coupon

    $1/2 Nabisco Cookies or Crackers 6/19/2011 SS
    Ajax in-ad coupon
    $1 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.33 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay $3.32 + tax for 3 toothbrushes, 2 boxes of tissue, 2 packs of cookies, and a can of Ajax. You’d pay that just for the tissue at Target!
