  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 5/20 – 5/26/2012

    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 U by Kotex Sleek Tampons @ $3.99

    $1/1 U by Kotex Tampons from 5/20 Smart Source

    Pay: $2.99 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Sleep Sheets Strips @ $5

    USE: $3 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $2 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #3:
    1 Oasis Age Essential Mouthwash @ $5.99

    USE: $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.99 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #4:
    2 Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste @ 2/$6
    1 Tuf Paper Towel or Big Roll Toilet Paper @ $0.50

    2 x $0.75/1 Colgate Total Advanced, Optic White or Sensitive Pro-Relief from 5/13 Smart Source
    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $3 RR for Colgate

    In sum, you’ll spend $5.98 + tax for Kotex, Sleep Sheets, mouthwash, 2 Colgate and paper towels or toilet paper, plus you’ll have a $3 RR to roll next week or spend this week. That makes your net cost just $2.98 + tax, which you could easily spend on just one tube of Colgate at other stores.
