  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 9/4 – 9/10/11

    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:
    BUY:
    2 Aveeno Shave Gel/Cream @ 2/$8

    USE:
    2 x $2/1 Aveeno product Recyclebank printable

    Pay: $4 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    2 Aussie or Herbal Essences Hair Care @ 2/$6
    1 Nice! Tomato Sauce @ $0.25

    USE:
    2 x $1/1 Herbal Essences or Aussie Products 8/7/2011 Red Plum
    $4 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.25 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR

    Transaction #3:
    BUY:
    1 Mitchum or Lady Mitchum Antiperspirant/Deodorant @ $2.99
    1 Nice! Tomato Sauce @ $0.25

    USE:
    $1/1 Mitchum Product 8/21/2011 Smart Source
    $2 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.24 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR

    At this point, you’ll have pay $4.49 + tax for two shaving products, two hair care products, two cans of tomato sauce and a deodorant, plus you’ll have a $2 RR to roll next week (or spend on this week’s sale items), making your net cost just $2.49. You could easily pay that just for one hair care or shaving product at Target.
