  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 12/11 – 12/17/11

    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:
    1 Bausch & Lomb Re-Nu Sensitive Multi–Purpose Solution @ $6.99

    Pay: $6.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    1 Goody Mini Claw Clips 12-pk or Bobby Slides 6-pk @ $2
    1 SalonPas pain patch @ $1
    1 Gold Medal Flour @ $2.25
    2 Holiday Peeps @ 2/$1 with in-ad coupon

    USE:
    $0.25/1 Gold Medal Flour, 5 lb+ printable
    $1/2 Peeps Products Facebook printable
    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Goody & $1 RR for Salon Pas

    At this point, you’ll have paid $6.99 + tax for contact solution, hair accessories, a pain relief patch, flour and candy – plus you’ll have $3 in RRs to roll next week or spend on this week’s sale items, making your net cost just $3.99 + tax. You’d pay more than that just for the contact solution at other stores!
