  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 7/15 – 7/21/2012

    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 Listerine Ultra Clean Cool Mint @ $4.99

    $0.50/1 Listerine or Listerine Zero Mouthwash from 4/29 Red Plum

    Pay: $4.49 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 Dentek Floss Sticks @ 2/$4
    1 Mitchum or Lady Mitchum @ $1.99
    1 Wexford or Penway 2 Pocket Folder @ $0.17 with in-ad coupon

    2 x $0.50/1 DenTek Flosser or Interdental Cleaner from 6/10 Smart Source
    $1/1 Mitchum or Mitchum for Women printable
    in-ad coupon for folder
    $4 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.16 + tax
    Receive: $2 RR for Dentek

    In sum, you’ll pay $4.65 for mouthwash, 2 flossers, deodorant, and a folder – plus you’ll have a $2 RR to roll next week or spend on this week’s sale items, making your net cost just $2.65. You’d pay more than that for just the mouthwash at other stores.
