  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 8/28 – 9/3/11

    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 Crest Complete Deep Clean Toothpaste @ 2/$5

    2 x $1/1 Crest Toothpaste or Liquid Gel 7/31 P&G Insert (exp 8/31) or 8/28 P&G Insert

    Pay: $3 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Crayola Crayons @ $1
    1 Carmex Moisturizing Lip Balm @ $1.50
    2 Kleenex Ultra Soft or Lotion Tissues @ $0.99 each with in-ad coupon

    $0.50/1 Carmex coupon printable previously available
    $0.50/2 Kleenex Ultra Soft, Lotion or Anti-viral Tissues 8/14 Smart Source
    $3 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.48 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR for Crayola and $1.50 RR for Carmex

    At this point, you’ll have spent $3.48 + tax for two tubes of toothpaste, two boxes of tissue, crayons, and lip balm, and you’ll have $2.50 in Register Rewards to roll next week or spend on this week’s sale items, like school supplies – making your net cost just $0.98 + tax.
