  • Walgreens Starter Scenarios: 1/29 – 2/4/2012

    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:
    1 Blink Tears Eye Care Drops @ $8

    $1.50/1 Blink Tears Lubricating Eye Drops printable (or $1/1 printable)

    Pay: $6.50 + tax
    Receive: $8 RR

    Transaction #2:
    4 Colgate Total Toothpaste @ 4/$12
    1 Russell Stover Chocolate Heart @ $0.29 with in-ad coupon

    4 x $1/1 Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste from Dec 2011 or Jan 2012 All You or 1/15 Smart Source
    in-ad coupon for Russell Stover
    $8 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: $0.29 + tax
    Receive: $4 RR + submit for $5 WYB $10 Colgate Rebate in 1/29 Smart Source

    Transaction #3:
    1 St. Joseph Enteric Aspirin @ $2
    1 Puffs tissue @ $1.50
    2 Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick @ 2/$4 with in-ad coupon

    $1.50/1 St. Joseph aspirin printable or from 1/29 Red Plum
    B1G1 Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick Deodorant from 1/29 Smart Source
    in-ad coupon for Speed Stick
    $4 RR from previous transaction

    Pay: Tax
    Receive: $2 RR for St. Joseph

    At this point, you’ll have paid $8.29 + tax for eye drops, 4 tubes of toothpaste, aspirin, tissue, and two deodorants – plus you’ll receive $5 back via rebate and you have a $2 RR to roll next week or spend this week, making your next cost just $1.29 + tax. That’s less than you would pay just for one toothpaste at other stores.
