  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 3/18 – 3/24/2012

    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 All Laundry Detergent @ $3.99

    $1/1 All Laundry Detergent from 3/4 Red Plum

    Pay: $2.99 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 Blue Diamond Almonds @ $3.79 & BOGO Free
    1 Carefree Pantiliners @ $0.99
    1 Reach Toothbrush Reach Floss @ $0.99 with in-ad coupon
    1 Reach Floss @ $0.99 with in-ad coupon

    2 x $1/1 Blue Diamond Almonds from 1/29 Smart Source
    $1/1 Carefree from 3/18 Smart Source
    $1/1 Reach Floss from 3/4 Red Plum
    $1/1 Reach Toothbrush from 3/4 Red Plum
    $1 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.76 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay $3.75 + tax for laundry detergent, 2 cans of almonds, a pack of pantiliners, and 2 dental care products. You would pay that just for the detergent at other stores!
