  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 7/1 – 7/7/2012

    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.

    Be sure to sign up for a free CVS Extra Care card – you’ll need it for the following deals (get it in store instead of online so they give you the card right away). You may also want to pick up a CVS green bag tag to earn ECBs for using reusable bags.

    Transaction #1:
    2 Mitchum or Lady Mitchum Deodorant @ 2/$6

    2 x $1/1 Mitchum or Mitchum for Women printable or from 6/24 Smart Source

    Pay: $4 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Oral B Pro Health Clinical Pro Flex Toothbrush @ $3.49
    2 Butterball Turkey Bacon @ $0.99 each
    1 Nice! Gelatin @ $0.20 with in-ad coupon

    $0.50/1 Oral B Pulsar, 3D White, Pro-Health or Complete toothbrush from 7/1 P&G
    $1/2 Butterball Turkey Sausage, Turkey Franks, or Turkey Bacon June 2012 All You
    in-ad coupon for gelatin

    Pay: $0.17 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Oral B

    Transaction #3:
    2 Nabisco Cookies or Crackers @ 2/$3
    1 Nice! Gelatin @ $0.20 with in-ad coupon

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.37 + tax for 2 deodorants, a toothbrush, 2 packs of turkey bacon, 2 boxes of gelatin, and 2 boxes of cookies or crackers – plus you’ll have a $1 RR to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost just $3.37. That’s more than you’d pay for the deodorants at other stores!
