  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 8/12 – 8/18/2012

    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:
    4 Dove Shampoo, Conditioner or Styling Products @ 4/$15
    1 Good ‘n Natural Bar @ $1.29

    2 x $3/2 Dove Hair Care products from 7/29 Red Plum
    Free Good ‘n Natural Bar from 8/12 Red Plum

    Pay: $9 + tax
    Receive: $5 RR

    Transaction #2:
    2 Irish Spring body wash @ 2/$6
    1 Wexford Highlighter @ $0.19 with in-ad coupon

    2 x $0.50/1 Irish Spring from 8/12 Smart Source
    in-ad coupon for highlighter
    $5 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.19 + tax
    Receive: $3 RR

    Transaction #3:
    3 Kleenex Facial Tissue @ $0.99
    1 Big Roll Bath Tissue @ $0.60

    $0.50/3 Kleenex Boxes from 8/12 Smart Source

    Pay: $0.07 + tax

    In sum, you’ll pay $9.26 + tax for 4 hair care products, 2 bottles of body wash, a highlighter, 3 boxes of tissue, and a roll of bath tissue. You’d pay more than that just for the hair care products at other stores!
