  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 7/29 – 8/4/2012

    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:
    3 All Laundry Detergent and or Snuggle Softener @ $3.99 each

    3 $1/1 All Laundry Detergent from 7/29 Red Plum and/or $1/1 Snuggle printable

    Pay: $8.97 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #2:
    1 Listerine Smart Rinse @ $2.99
    2 Ragu Pasta Sauce @ 2/$3
    1 Mini Highlighter @ $0.15 with in-ad coupon

    $1/1 Listerine Kids Rinse or Reach Kids Toothbrush printable or printable or from 4/29 Red Plum (exp 7/31)
    Use $0.50/2 Ragu Pasta Sauce 07/29/2012 RP Insert (exp 08/26/2012)
    in-ad coupon for highlighter
    $3 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $1.64 + tax
    Receive: $1 RR for Listerine

    In sum, you’ll pay $10.61 + tax for 3 laundry products, mouth rinse, 2 jars of pasta sauce, and a highlighter – plus you’ll have a $1 RR to roll next week or spend this week, making your net cost $9.61 + tax. That’s at least what you’d pay for just the laundry products at other stores.
