  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 1/22 – 1/28/2012

    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 Triaminic Fever Pain Reliever @ 2/$10

    2 x $3/1 Triaminic Fever Reducer Pain Reliever 12/04 Smart Source

    Pay: $4 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 Colgate Total Advanced and/or Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste @ 2/$8
    1 Valentine Candy @ $0.39 with in-ad coupon

    2 x $1/1 Colgate Total Advanced/Optic White/Sensitive Pro-Relief 1/15 Smart Source or $1/1 Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste Dec or Jan All You
    in-ad coupon for candy
    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $1.39 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR

    Transaction $3:
    2 Stayfree Maxi Pads @ $1.99 each
    1 Ultimate Flurry Protein Bar @ $1.99
    1 Valentine Candy @ $0.39 with in-ad coupon

    B1G1 Stayfree product 1/08 Smart Source or 2 x $1/1 Stayfree product printable
    in-ad coupon for candy
    $4 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.37 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Ultimate Flurry

    In sum, you’ll pay $5.76 + tax for 2 Triaminic, 2 Colgate toothpaste, 2 Stayfree pads, a protein bar, and 2 candies – plus you’ll have a $2 Register Reward to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $3.76 + tax. You could easily pay that for just one tube of toothpaste at other stores!
