  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 3/4 – 3/10/2012

    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:
    1 Colgate Toothpaste @ $3

    USE:
    $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste from 2/26 Smart Source

    Pay: $2.25 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    1 Tide Stain Release @ $4.49
    1 Nice! Salt or Baking Soda @ $0.50 with in-ad coupon

    USE:
    $0.50/1 Tide Detergent, Stain Release, or To Go from 3/4 P&G Insert
    in-ad coupon for salt or baking soda
    $3 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $1.49 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay just $3.74 + tax for toothpaste, stain remover, and salt or baking soda. You would pay that just for the Tide Stain Release at most other stores.
