  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 9/18 – 9/24/11

    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 Aussie or Herbal Essences products @ 2/$6

    2 x $1/1 Herbal Essences or Aussie Products 8/7/2011 Red Plum

    Receive: $2 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Hylands Cold N Cough @ $4.99

    Transaction #3:
    1 Blistex Cold & Allergy @ $2
    2 Ritz Crackerfuls @ 2/$5
    1 Ben & Jerry’s Pint @ $2.99

    2 x $0.75/1 Ritz Crackerfuls Product Facebook printable

    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Your total out of pocket expenses will be $7.48 + tax for 2 hair care products, cold medicine, lip balm, crackers, and ice cream, plus you’ll have a $2 RR to roll next week, for a net cost of $5.48. You could easily pay that just for the hair care products at other stores.
