  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 6/10 – 6/16/2012

    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:
    2 Nivea for Men Energy After Shave Splash at 2/$7

    2 x $2.50/1 Nivea for Men Energy After Shave Splash Facebook printable (or use 2 x $2.25/1 printables)

    Pay: $2 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR
    If you’d rather have other Nivea products, check the list of available Nivea for Men coupons here – you’ll pay $0.25 more per product, but get two other products of your choice.

    Transaction #2:
    1 Coppertone Lotion or Spray @ $9.79
    1 Tuf paper towel or Big Roll toilet paper @ $0.50

    $1/1 Coppertone from 5/20 Smart Source or printable
    $2 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $7.29 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    In sum, you’ll pay $9.29 + tax for 2 Nivea for Men products and sunscreen – plus you’ll have a $3 RR to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $6.29, or about what you’d pay just for the sunscreen after sale and coupon at Target.

    1. There is a problem with this Nivea deal, despite it being reported all over the net. Walgreens does not even carry the Nivea for Men Energy After Shave Splash. The only product that the coupons and RR work for is the after shave balm. There have been a lot of disappointed shoppers today, and I’ve learned that from now on, I will check Walgreens.com to see if the product is carried and go the extra step and see if my local store has it in stock.
