  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 2/19 – 2/25/2012

    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:
    1 Goody Ouchless Elastics @ $2.99
    1 Tylenol Precise Relief Cream @ $5

    $5/1 Tylenol Precise Relief from 2/19 Red Plum

    Pay: $2.99 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Goody

    Transaction #2:
    3 Kleenex @ $0.99 each
    1 Hunt’s Tomato Sauce @ $0.39 with in-ad coupon

    $0.50/3 Kleenex from 2/12 Smart Source
    in-ad coupon for Hunt’s
    $2 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.86 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay $3.85 + tax for hair bands, pain relief cream, 3 boxes of tissue, and a can of tomato sauce. You’d pay that just for the tissue at most other stores!
