  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 5/13 – 5/19/2012

    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 Starbucks Refreshers @ $0.99

    FREE Starbucks Refreshers Beverages from 4/29 Pepsi Insert

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $1 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste @ 2/$7
    1 Aquafresh Kids Toothpaste @ $0.99
    1 Nice! Gelatin @ $0.25

    2 x $1/1 Colgate Optic White Toothpaste from 4/15 Smart Source
    $1/1 Aquafresh Kids Toothpaste from May 2012 All You or 4/15 Red Plum {may need to be adjusted down}
    $1 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $4 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #3:
    6 Dial Hand soap on sale @ BOGO Free or 2/$2.79
    1 Nice! Gelatin @ $0.25

    $3/6 Dial Liquid Hand Soap printable
    $3 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $2.62

    In sum, you’ll pay just $6.62 + tax for an energy drink, 2 adult toothpaste, 1 kid’s toothpaste, 6 bottles of hand soap and 2 boxes of gelatin. You’d pay that just for the toothpaste at other stores.
