My Walgreens Run: What I Saved And What I Took Home


I am going to start doing Walgreens each week – and this was my first attempt.

I split it into two transactions in order to use the Registered Rewards from my first order on my second.

Transaction 1:

  • Advil 40-50 count: $4.99 — if you buy two you get $5 in Register Rewards.

So, it was $10 total. I had a $4 coupon (on 2 Advil products). Out of my pocket I paid $5.98 but then got $5 in RR that I applied towards my next purchase.

Transaction 2:

  • Tone Body Wash – $3.99 (then I received $3 in RR)
  • Scunci Hair Elastics – $2 (then I received $2 in RR)
  • Silk Shaving Cream – $1.99 (then I received $1.50 in RR)

Total was $8 but I used my $5 in RR from my first transaction and ended up paying $3.67 with tax.

From transaction 2, I received $6.50 in RR for next week.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO I bought $18 worth of goods, spent $8+ out of my pocket and still have $6.50 to use next week.

This one was pretty high for my out of pocket expense, but it’s because I’m just beginning. I had to put money into the system in order to get some back for next week. I’ve already done my next week transactions and I can’t WAIT to show you that magic!

This sale ends today. So if you want to at least do transaction 2 to get into the game, do it by 9pm tonight!! Tomorrow I will post next week’s Walgreen’s sale. It’s a good one I promise!

  3. I love your blog! Thanks for the info on Walgreen’s, my sisters and I are apiring to become well know by the extreme couponers, lol. Actually, we just want to save a few bucks. If you haven’t checked it out yet does all the ad and bargain searches for you and will tell you where to use which coupon where, don’t even have to do the math yourself.
