  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 3/25 – 3/31/2012

    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:
    BUY:
    2 Got2B Stylers @ 2/$10

    USE:
    2 x $3/1 Got2b product from 2/12 Red Plum

    Pay: $4 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    1 Extra Strength Mentholatum Pain Relief @ $5.99

    USE:
    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #3:
    BUY:
    1 Kettle Brand Chips @ $2
    2 Colgate Total Toothpaste @ 2/$6
    1 Wrapped Pencil with Eraser Top or Scented Gel Pen @ $0.34 (3/$1)

    USE:
    $1/1 Kettle Potato Chips from 3/18 Red Plum
    2 x $1/1 Colgate Total Toothpaste printable or from 3/11 Smart Source
    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.34 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR for Colgate

    In sum you’ll pay $5.33 + tax for 2 hair products, pain relief spray, 2 tubes of toothpaste, and a pencil or pen – plus you’ll have a $3 RR to roll next week, making your next cost just $2.33!
