  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 2/26 – 3/3/2012

    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 Renew Life Ultimate Flora Daily Care @ $10

    $2/1 Ultimate Flora ProBiotic printable {previously available}

    Pay: $8 + Tax
    Receive: $10 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Finish Dishwasher Detergent @ $3.99
    1 Burt’s Bees Cough Drops @ $1.99
    1 Super Poligrip @ $1.99
    1 Nivea Lip Care @ $2.99

    $0.75/1 Finish Dishwasher Cleaner from 1/8 Smart Source
    $10 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.21 + tax
    Receive: $1.50 RR for Finish, $2 RR for Burt’s Bees, $2 RR for Poligrip, & $2 RR for Nivea

    Transaction #3:
    1 Baby Magic Dustless Baby Powder @ $6
    3 Tuf Paper Towels @ $0.69 with in-ad coupon

    $1.50 RR from previous transaction
    3 x $2 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.57 + tax
    Receive: $6 MIR for Baby Magic

    In sum, you’ll pay $8.78 + tax for probiotics, dishwasher detergent, baby powder, and 3 rolls of paper towels – plus you’ll get $6 back via rebate ($6.60 if you choose to have your rebate put on a Walgreens gift card – highly recommended). If you get the rebate on a Walgreens gift card, your total pretax cost is just $2.18, which is less than you’d pay just for the dishwasher detergent at most stores.

    Note: If you didn’t print the Ultimate Flora ProBiotic coupon when I mentioned it last week, your total cost will be just $2 more than the scenario above. If you don’t care about the probiotics, you can skip Transaction #1 and pay cash in Transaction #2.
