  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 1/8 – 1/14/2012

    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.

You could pay that just for one tube of toothpaste at other stores!
