  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 6/3 – 6/9/2012

    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 Toothbrush @ $2.50

    USE:
    $0.75/1 Colgate Toothbrush from 6/3 Smart Source

    Pay: $1.75 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR

    Transaction #2:
    BUY:
    1 Goody Ouchless @ $2

    USE:
    $1 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $1 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR

    Transaction #3:
    BUY:
    1 Reach Total care Floss or Toothbrush @ $2.99

    USE:
    $2 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.99 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR

    Transaction #4:
    BUY:
    1 Goody Ouchless @ $2

    USE:
    $2 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $2 RR

    At this point, you’ll have paid $3.74 + tax for a toothbrush, 2 packs of hair bands, and floss or another toothbrush – plus you’ll have a $2 RR to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $1.74. You’d pay more than that just for a toothbrush at other stores.
