  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 6/17 – 6/23/2012

    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 Coppertone @ $9.79 each

    USE:
    $3/2 Coppertone from 5/20 Smart Source

    Pay: $16.58 + tax
    Receive: $10 RR

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    1 Colgate Total Advance or Total Gum Defense toothpaste @ $3
    2 Oscar Mayer Bacon @ $3.99 & B1G1
    2 Hefty One Zip Bags @ $3.49 & B1G1
    1 Reach Dental Care Toothbrush or Floss @ $2.99

    USE:
    $0.75/1 Colgate Toothpaste from 6/3 Smart Source (or $0.50/1, depending on your regional coupon)
    $1/2 Oscar Mayer Selects Hot Dogs or Bacon from 5/6 Smart Source
    2 x $0.55/1 Hefty Slider Bags printable
    $10 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.62 + tax
    Receive: $2.50 RR for Colgate + $2 RR for Reach

    At this point, you’ll have paid $17.20 + tax for 2 bottles of sunscreen, toothpaste, 2 packs of bacon, 2 packs of zip top bags, and a toothbrush or floss – plus you’ll have $4.50 in RR to roll next week (or spend this week), making your net cost just $12.70 + tax. That’s about what you’d pay just for the sunscreen at Target, after sale and coupon!
