  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 2/12 – 2/18/2012

    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:
    4 Progresso Soup @ 4/$5

    $1/4 Progresso Soup Cans from 1/8 or 2/5 GM insert

    Pay: $4 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Lypsyl Extreme Cold Sore Relief @ $5

    In sum, you’ll pay $8.96 + tax for 4 cans of Progresso, cold sore medicine, deodorant, two boxes of zip-top bags, grape juice, and a miscellaneous grocery item. That’s a good deal for so many items, especially since it’s been hard to find cheap soup this winter.
