  • Walgreens Transaction Ideas: 9/25/2012

    You’ll find a list of this week’s Walgreens deals here.

    Now that I’ve a chance to use the new Balance Rewards program at Walgreens personally, I have a few ideas on how you could get started this week. 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.

    You can also skip ahead to my idea for the 5,000 bonus points offer that’s valid today and tomorrow only (9/25-26).
